It’s been said that love hurts, and there are times when all the chocolate in the world can’t mend a broken heart.
But a little aggression might.
This Valentine’s Day, a Houston gun range is offering a special promotion: Forget your ex by shooting at teddy bears.
For some, it’s the best cure for heartbreak. What else are you going to do with that cheap drugstore present your ex bought for you (and probably several others) last-minute?
Boyert Shooting Range’s annual promotion allows distraught lovers to shoot their own bears from or choose a new bear to blast. Only in Texas.
While at least one respondent told KHOU-TV that that promotion is "fun," not everyone feels the same.
“It’s kind of a little creepy,” Carolyn Grant said. Grant told KHOU-TV that supports the Boyert’s strange tradition for a different reason.
I heard it was a fundraiser. If you buy a teddy bear, it raises funds for police dogs and, like it or not, I’m going to shoot a teddy bear,” she said.
Others find it strangely therapeutic.
“I’m a single guy and it gives me a chance to let loose a little bit,” Johnny Nguyen told KHOU-TV.
