AT­LANTA (AP) — Own­ers of a gun club be­ing built in metro At­lanta have been granted a per­mit to serve pa­trons cold beer af­ter they hol­ster their smok­ing pis­tols.

WSB-TV re­ports the city coun­cil in Pow­der Spring has ap­proved an al­co­hol per­mit for The Gover­nor’s Club. Owner Kristina Brown said she and her hus­band plan to op­er­ate a lounge at the $3.5 mil­lion gun range when it opens.

Brown notes that Ge­or­gia law now al­lows peo­ple with gun per­mits to carry firearms into busi­nesses that serve booze. She said her gun club is “tak­ing it even a step fur­ther.”

How­ever, Brown said cus­tomers who or­der drinks at the gun club bar will have their IDs flagged and won’t be al­lowed to re­turn to the fir­ing range.
