Gun Range

Date Idea: Gun Range
Location: Port Coquitlam
Price: $30 pp + the price of ammo

This past week has brought some unusual weather for Vancouver. Last week, there was snow. As I look outside now, there is some sun peaking through, but its not quite spring time yet. So it may be a good time to bring things indoors and try something exciting. This week's idea is the indoor gun range.

DVC Ventures is an indoor gun range located in Port Coquitlam. You don't have to have a fire arms license to fire a gun there. They have lots of trained friendly staff who can help you and your date in learning how to fire a gun and how to do it safely. Admission to get in is $30 which includes gun rental and then you just pay for the ammunition that you fire along with your targets. If you have your own gun, you can bring that, however, there are some size restrictions. Typically, the more power a bullet has, the more expensive it'll be. You can often get a half price discount on admission on Wednesday nights but going to the "Special Events" page on their website and saying the passphrase of the week at the counter. Friday nights are ladies night where the ladies get free admission. A little tip is to get there early on those nights as there can be a bit of a wait. Don't forget to bring government ID.
