A plan to allow tourists to shoot high-end Italian guns inside a casino on the Las Vegas Strip appears to have fallen apart.

The company behind the effort to install a Beretta shooting range and gun store inside the Shoppes at Palazzo is withdrawing its permit application.

County spokesman Dan Kulin confirms that Phase II Mall Subsidiary pulled its application Wednesday during a meeting of the Clark County Commission.

Beretta had proposed a 20,000-square-foot complex complete with two live gun ranges, three virtual ranges and a retail store selling guns but not ammunition.

Representatives for the adjoining Venetian resort opposed the proposal, saying it could be dangerous.

A spokeswoman for the Shoppes declined comment. Beretta representatives did not respond to calls or emails.
