While the debate about openly carried guns in eateries continues in many parts of the country, in Rifle, CO (yes, that is the actual town name) one restaurant already has the whole thing figured out.

At Shooters Grill even the waitstaff carries loaded firearms, most often six shooters, on their hips for the duration of their shifts.

According to local media reports,

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.

The sign pictured above is an actual sign taken from the front of the restaurant (via Shooters Grill Facebook Page).
