Mitchell Saltz, who was the Chairman of Smith & Wesson a gun manufacturer, has created a restaurant called Modern Round that allows patrons to shoot replica guns with the same recoil and kickback of a real one. Targets are provided, “We’ve designed some of our content for entry-level people that have never touched a gun before. Then we also have much more complex programs where you get into shoot-don’t-shoot scenarios.”
The gun themed restaurant is planning to expand to 20 locations around the US, right now they are in the gun friendly state of Arizona. A small membership fee is required and right now they has a whopping 23,000 members, “We’re giving them the opportunity to go in, feel comfortable about what’s going on, so if they do choose to own one, they have a comfort level with it instead of letting it sit on the shelf and being intimidated by it.” Kids 12 and up are permitted to shoot.
