Go to a shooting range

If you know someone who likes guns, you can easily convince them to take you shooting. There are usually indoor shooting ranges if you live in a place where you don’t have an outdoor range nearby. You can take it one step farther and do some sort of “gun safety” class before shooting as part of the date.

Katie and I did this recently and it was a lot of fun. Over 4th of July weekend, we were in Utah visiting family and one of my uncle’s friends offered to take us shooting. We went up in the hills behind Richfield to practice. Katie had never shot a gun (and it had been a long time since I went) and it was amazing (and scary) to see how powerful these things were. It pretty much convinced us that we never wanted to be in the military, but it was an awesome experience. You’ll have to get Katie to show you the pictures of her holding a gun.
