(Billy Hallowell) Forget clowns, magicians, inflatables and Chuck E. Cheese. There will soon be a more unique way for children to celebrate their birthdays. The Eagle Gun Range in Lewisville, Texas, is planning to offer kids as young as 8-years-old the opportunity to host gun-shooting parties.
Later this summer, the range, which is being dubbed “family-friendly,” will make two rooms available for hosting these special birthday experiences. David Prince, who is currently building the new, state-of-the-art gun range, told WFAA-TV that the children’s party offering isn’t just about fun; it’s also about education.
“One of the reasons we’re doing this is, when I had my boys, I didn’t have a place to take them and educate them about how to handle a gun safely,” he said. “I really want families to be able to take their kids here and teach their young shooters how to shoot safely.”
