Heading to the Western Slope this weekend? Remember to pack your ammo if you stop by Shooters Grill in Rifle, because the waitresses are packing at this restaurant. And so can you, because the Shooters Facebook page proclaims that the place is "open carry." See also: Shooter's Grill waitresses are armed -- and so are many of the customers

Says Rocky:

How phucking stupid!! Not a chance this place would get my money.

Counters Melvin:

I would definitely eat there -- second amendment right. Hot chicks with good Glocks! Those who oppose are a bunch of little bitches who don't understand our constitution.

And here's how Richard sums it up:

I'd rather them know how to serve food efficiently.

Would you go to a restaurant where the staff -- and the customers -- are packing?

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.
