This video doesn’t need translation and it doesn’t matter if they’re colleagues or a couple, it still makes my point. If you and your significant other like guns, trap shooting, hunting or 3-Gun competitions: doing them together brings you closer!

Plus, look how much fun they’re having, how can that be a bad thing?

Whether you run a skeet course together as a team or shooting drills against each other, doing these necessary activities together will not only help each of you become a more proficient shooter and/or gun owner, but can really bring out your competitive spirit.

That’s a good thing in a relationship, guys, trust me.

Places like Sharp Shooting Indoor Range and Gun Shop in Spokane aren’t just focusing on women only classes, they understand that some of those women are part of a couple. Every Wednesday and Friday from 5-9PM, couples pay just $25 to share a lane and no gun rental fee.

Talk about the ultimate date night for gun enthusiasts! Sealed Mindset, a world-class shooting range in New Hope, MN, offers 8 couples dinner and defensive handgun training on Valentine’s Day. This innovative and fun couples package was deemed “the most unusual Date Night concept around” by Inc. Magazine, but in my book, it’s just plain old smart.

My husband and I shot darts on our first date and we have an electronic dart board in our downstairs bar. Obviously, we love shooting darts, so when he found these game-themed targets on Amazon and asked if I wanted to try them with him, I was like ‘Heck yeah! We can shoot darts and guns, that’s so cool!’

So if you have cabin fever (yes), or are looking for an excuse to get your significant other to the range with you (yes, please) or if you just need an excuse to fire your gun (when don’t you?) then consider a date night at the range.

Training doesn’t have to be boring and you don’t have to do it alone. Switch it up, grab your favorite guy or gal and get closer while gaining experience and practice.

That, my friends is called a WIN/WIN.
