HOOVER, Ala. — Alabama Republicans plan to hold their election night party at a gun range, where participants will be able to shoot a few rounds as returns come in.
The state Republican Party is inviting supporters to the 52,000-square-foot Hoover Tactical Firearms for a "victory party" Tuesday night.
The suburban Birmingham business sells firearms and it has ranges where people can shoot their own guns or guns that are available for rent.
A party announcement says the shooting ranges will be available for two hours during the election event. There will also be a band and an appearance by Miss Alabama.
Loaded guns will be allowed only on the firing range and a party spokeswoman says drinking won't be allowed while people are shooting.
Republicans are expecting GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney to easily carry Alabama.
