Shooting range adds wedding chapel

"You can have your dream gun-themed wedding."

Las Vegas is known for its quirky wedding venues and services. There's the Denny's wedding chapel, for example. Oh, and if you're in a real hurry, you can get married curbside.

So maybe it's not terribly surprising that The Gun Store, one of Las Vegas' original shooting ranges, has recently added a wedding chapel.

The store's website boasts that they have ordained ministers and wedding officiants on staff "so you can have your dream gun-themed wedding in our VIP range."

We're not sure how many little girls' dream it is to get married at a shooting range, but in case it is, they've got you covered.

The Gun Store has a full list of packages and services for brides and grooms to be, including a luxury limo ride, champagne and bridal boutiques. But wait, there's more:

"As part of our services, we will give you gift bags, five shots on a shotgun, custom hats, shirts and photo opportunities where you can pose with each gun you shoot! For couples who are gun-crazy, (or not) our Mr. & Mrs. Smith & Wesson package hits the spot. More guns, more ammunition and more targets translate into more enjoyment on your big day! We are talking real shotguns and machine guns that you may have seen in movies or read about in the papers - a great chance to have an explosive wedding!"

Some couples have already taken them up on the offer. Jason and Alta, for example, tied the knot at The Gun Store on August 19, 2012.
