FORT WORTH (CBS11) – Some couples will swap out flowers and chocolate for target practice on Valentine’s Day.

Defender Outdoors Shooting Center in Fort Worth has been filling up reservations for a less traditional Valentine’s Day date night at the gun range.

“If you don’t want to get her roses, get her a rifle,” said Taylor Lowery, membership director at Defender Outdoor Shooting Center.

Lowery said the popular event is a good bonding experience and offers something out of the ordinary for couples to experience together.

“We are offering something that is completely different and a unique experience,” said Lowery.

Naomi Garcia is one of those people shooting for something different on Valentine’s Day.

“I would do anything other than a typical night out,” said Garcia.  “It’s definitely not a cliché.”
