Video: Hot, gun-packing Shooters Grill waitresses get their national close-up

Last week, when we told you about Shooters Grill, a restaurant in Rifle whose waitresses open-carry firearms on the job, we noted that the subsequent PR bonanza made sense because "plenty of guys think women with guns are hot."

CBS obviously understands this truism, too, because the powerful network has just featured the Shooters staff in a new report touted by the Twitpic above -- and don't be surprised if more national news organizations follow suit. See the CBS clip below.

More from our Gun Culture archive circa July 2: "Photos: Shooters Grill's waitresses are armed -- and so are a lot of the customers."

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
