The Modern Round, a new restaurant in Peoria, Arizona, will allow you to shoot replica firearms while waiting for your meal.
Before you go all ballistic, I should mention that the guns provided by Modern Round are not real firearms, but realistic laser replicas designed to feel like the real thing. Instead of gun range targets, patrons must shoot at virtual targets on a 16-foot-wide screen, and can choose from a variety of options, from zombie-themed games to live-action police and military scenarios. To make the experience feel as realistic as possible, the replicas are molded into the size, shape and weight of actual firearms, and some of the weapons even have a CO2 system that “provides realistic recoil and blowback.”
So basically it’s like eating at a KFC in downtown Detroit, without the blood and those pesky minorities. (I’m kidding; please don’t send hate mail.)
The whole place allegedly has a James Bond film feel to it, with the main door shaped as a keyhole and hostesses dressed in skin tight body-con who handcuff themselves to metallic attaché cases containing the weapons you’ll be using during your stay. There is also a professional shooting instructor roaming around and letting shooters know what they’re doing wrong and how to improve their aiming.
You know, not a day goes by where I don’t think about moving to the Grand Canyon State. This eatery is tipping the scales even further.
