LAS VEGAS >> Officials say a high-end Italian gun manufacturer can move forward with plans to build a shooting range inside a Las Vegas Strip resort-casino.
The Clark County Planning Commission earlier this week approved a permit for gun company Beretta, which plans to put a nearly 20,000-square-foot retail and shooting complex inside The Shoppes at the Palazzo.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/MY8ORf) Beretta wants to build two live gun ranges and three virtual ranges. The proposed complex would also include a retail store that would sell guns but not ammunition.
The company says customers won't be allowed to bring outside guns and ammunition into the shooting range.
