An indoor shooting range planned for Powder Springs is going to serve alcohol.

The Powder Springs City Council has approved an alcohol license for the Governors Gun Club.

Developers Kristina and Bert Brown say the 16-range facility will cost $3.5 million and will operate like a country club, with members-only privileges. She said a valet will take firearms when members have finished at the range. Members will not be allowed to return to the range after having a drink.

The manager of shooting promotions for the National Shooting Sports Foundation, Zach Snow, said it has 7,000 shooting ranges in its database and only a few serve liquor. But he said more ranges are adding new amenities, such as cafes.
