Man’s shooting range wedding proposal was right on target

WAYNE, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey couple is planning on giving marriage a shot after a man surprised his girlfriend by proposing at an indoor shooting range.

Kara Crampton was taking target practice Sunday at Reloaderz in Wayne when a target spun around and showed the message “Will you marry me?” with the option for her to either shoot the words “YES” or “NO.” The range’s owner created the target, making sure the “YES” area was a much easier to hit than the “NO.”

The owner’s son is a friend of Crampton’s new fiance, Jake Woodruff.

Crampton seemed stunned by the proposal and then turned around to see Woodruff on one knee holding an engagement ring. She quickly accepted his proposal, then formally made her answer official about 10 minutes later by putting three shots in the center of the “YES” target.
