Deadwood business aims to combine bullets and beer

Posted: Updated:

DEADWOOD, S.D. (AP) - A businessman in the western South Dakota gambling town of Deadwood wants to combine an indoor shooting range with a saloon.

The Black Hills Pioneer reports that the Deadwood Guns complex proposed by Greg Vecchi would have several businesses, including a gun shop, a pawn shop, a shooting range and a bar called the Bullets and Beer Saloon. A ballroom would host a gun show four times a year.

Mayor Chuck Turbiville has questioned how people who have been drinking will be controlled.

Vecchi says the saloon area will be locked down, and people will be tested for alcohol consumption before being allowed to shoot.

He says, "Sequence is important. Bullets first, beer second."

The City Commission is developing conditions for the business.
