Even Waitresses Carry Guns At Shooters Grill In Rifle, CO
Yup, that’s the name of the town, “Rifle” Colorado. And the name of the restaurant is “Shooters Grill.”
When waitress Ashlee Saenz takes your order at Shooters Grill in Rifle, she not only carries a pad and pen — she also packs a loaded Ruger .357 Blackhawk handgun holstered on her leg, Old West style.
It’s loaded and she knows how to use it.
Saenz and her co-workers, along with customers who come into Shooters, are encouraged by Shooters’ owners to pack heat in the restaurant, as allowed by Colorado law.
The restaurant also hosts concealed carry training — the $75 price tag includes dinner — that qualifies customers for Colorado and Utah permits.
Because what goes better with burgers than bullets?
A sign on the front door of Shooters Grill reads, “Guns are welcome on premises. Please keep all weapons holstered, unless the need arises. In such cases, judicious marksmanship is appreciated.
Sure. I can’t count the number of times I’ve been enjoying a meal at a restaurant, minding my own business, when an incident occurred whereby I only wished I’d had marksmanship training. If only people would stop making me need a gun every second of my life.
