Whiskey Trigger

Shootin' Then Drinkin' is your new Saturday tradition

Full_guns

Yeah, we miss Deadwood, too.

But when you're ready to step away from HBO GO, there's another way to get your whiskey-and-shooting fix.
 
It's called Shootin’ Then Drinkin’, the new Saturday day trip to southwest Michigan where the drinking of craft spirits takes place only after the shooting of AK-47s.
 
But first you’ll need to load up yourself (keep your weapon holstered at home, these will be provided) into a motorcoach leaving Ed Debevic’s at 9a.
 
The 90-minute trip to Benton Harbor, Michigan ends at Point Blank Shooting Range, an indoor range where firearms safety training is the first order of business.
 
After a lunch of BBQ and black bean burgers, it’s time for your transformation into John Rambo as you unload 50 shots with a 9mm pistol and five shots with an AK-47.
 

Not enough firepower? Opt for the John Wayne Package for an additional 15 shots with a revolver.
 
Cap off the day with a trip to the nearby Round Barn Winery, Brewery, and Distillery, where you’ll tip back hand-crafted spirits and beers over a spirited exchange of war stories.
 
It just might be the finest Saturday tradition since the invention of college football.
