Skip the Bow and Arrow, Buy a Gun for Valentine’s Day

David De Lossy/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- The way to a woman's heart is buying her a pink handgun?

Eschewing the usual stuff men buy their sweethearts for Valentine's Day, Indiana gun stores say that they've seen more guys buying firearms, presumably for the little lady.

And that includes pink guns, which look dainty but still carry the same firepower as other weapons.

Tim Tomich, who owns a shooting academy in Indianapolis, admits, "I wouldn't even be surprised if we have a number of people coming in on Friday on a date night."

Tomich adds that a woman also came in to buy a gift certificate that she will give to her husband on Valentine's Day.

However, he doesn't downplay the importance of learning the proper use and handling of guns despite the novelty of this particular gift.
