Valentine’s Day Plans 2024

Get that love on with these events.
As we do every year, shout-out to the LA Gun Club
-This Valentine's Day while others are going for the hum-drum of the beautiful views of LA's scenery and fancy restaurants why don't you shoot a .45 ? I'm writing about grabbing a gun and shooting lead  at LA Gun Club's busiest time of year. The LA Gun Club may get the most people in love or hemorrhaging sadness this Wednesday and you'll want to be there to see it.

As the mascara runs, don't you want to show how much you make a great couple? Pump so lead. Pumping other things later. 
If alone, you have a target to direct that frustration at...a literal target. It's sweet and both bittersweet on Valentine's Day at the gun range.

The LA Gun Club features the largest variety of weapons in the LA area to utterly destroy targets put in front of you. Use a shotgun and hold it together for a bracing hug. Teach someone how to hold a Magnum in their hands. Take an endless amount of selfies confusing friends as to where you are for Valentine's Day.

After all that blasting have a blast at the nearby Factory Kitchen. A romantic Italian meal awaits after shots have been fired. Calm down with a nice pasta after feeling the kick of your gun in your hands and forget the smell of lead with something oh, so much better.
