    Also serves alcohol, which doesn't seem like a good combination.

    Are these the next big thing, or is this one unique?

    What could go wrong?
    I think I heard something about this a while back, but I’m not sure

    We had one nearby. It was advertised on the morning news show. It lasted a few months. Then it was gone. I hate to see small businesses close because someone invested their time and money to open it. But that one was doomed from the start.

    I thought you'd pay a small fee to smash guitars.

    Maybe it could have been a new Gibson venture.

    They've been around here a few years. You can go on YouTube and see all sorts of videos where the axe bounces off the board and flies right back at the chunker...jaja.

    One of the of Moose Club's I gig at around here has a pistol and rifle range!

    Pubs in Britain used to have rifle shooting tournaments.. inside the pub. What could go wrong?

    Pi$$ed up testosterone fuelled men possibly harbouring resentment towards other locals, competing against each other with loaded firearms.. whilst punters were in the same bar enjoying a pint.

    I came across one last winter in Virginia and was horrified watching thru the window. Health and safety considerations?........ not many from what I could see.
    Axes were bouncing off the plywood targets, and I couldn't watch for long thinking what would happen if someone lost their grip swinging back to throw...

    I’d just as soon, if not rather, do that than play “Cornhole”.

    To each his own, but that sure looks lethal. Fancy doing a risk assessment on that!

    My daughter did that with her employer. NE Ohio. Maybe it is a midwestern thing? She enjoyed it, but crikey the liability insurance must be sky high.

    A couple of ladies opened one last year, here. A month later I saw on the local news that they had applied for a liquor license. Just like everyone else (except them, I guess) I thought "What could go rong with that?"

    The sign outside the local one said "50% off" yesterday, though they didn't say where it might come off.

    Stress relieving exercise for a holiday gathering. They are mental health counselors, so relieve stress since team building is not the approach.
