SEASIDE — A blast from the past — that’s one way to describe the new Seaside Shootout, an arcade at 111 Broadway.

Choose your favorite gun — revolver, mare’s leg or rifle — and take aim.

Take 24 shots in one game or fire unlimited shots for one minute. One game is $3; two games, $5; and five games $10.

Owners Dave and Britnie Posalki, with Solomon and Cecilia “CC” Sibony, opened the gallery in late January with a ribbon-cutting before members of the Seaside Chamber of Commerce.

The shooting gallery boasts city colors, as selected and designed by the city’s visitors bureau. “They gave us a guide that had all of their colors and logos and icons, and they said we can run with it,” Posalski said.

The Seaside Shootout is meant to be reminiscent of arcade games from Coney Island, New York, Posalski said.

Production of the machines was done by a company based in Paso Robles, California.

The store is described as “self-running,” though Sibony will be next door at Freedom, the store he has owned since 2001.

“I’m excited for something else for people to do in town, keeping people here, keeping people active,” Seaside Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Brian Owen said.
