This could even be a Sticky as a resource for new places to shoot, or places we can visit around the Commonwealth.

I shoot at Dominion Shooting Range. It's a bit hard to find the first time as it's tucked back off the road.
http://dominionshootingrange.com/

I've never really looked at others around the area. Where do you other Richmond area Glockers shoot?

Here, now arranged by region, is the list a/o 6/17:

I prefer the NRA in fairfax.

However I have been going to Blue Ridge in Chantilly; with co-workers that want to purchase a firearm since Blue Ridge rents guns out.

As a result my friends have more options then the 3 firearms I have access to.

Well lets see,

Sunday afternoons once a month I'm out in Strasburg at an IPSC match.

Sunday evenings it's the NRA range with the Acorns. (darn I usually don't get to shoot)

Tuesday Evenings I'm at the Izaak Walton League in Centreville with the NOVA Sharpshooters. (only occasionally shoot)

Fridays and Saturdays often find me back at IWLA or NRA.

And starting up in a couple of weeks I'll be out at Fairfax Rod and Gun club in Manassas on Saturday mornings for a rimfire league.

I can't believe nobody's mentioned the Rivanna Rifle and Pistol Club at Charlottesville. It's 80 miles from Richmond, but only 4 miles off Interstate 64. I moved to Florida in Feb, and my club is the ONLY thing I miss after living in virginia for 61 years.

It's wonderful! 14 indoor pistol lanes, skeet, trap, outdoor pistol, rifle range up to 300 yards. 100 acres in all.

It's a private club, but there is public shotgunning every Sunday 1 to 5, and there are many, many competitions open to the public. High power rifle, IDPA, and such, as well as junior stuff. I have my own key, and I'm a thousand miles away!!

Check it out at www.rrpc.org.

VA Glocker

I just got my first gun for my 21st a little more than a month ago and this is my first post on Glocktalk. Anyways I just signed up at the Black Creek Range about 3weeks ago. Iím not sure how many spaces they have left this year but I got my membership the same day I applied and was able to shoot there in the afternoon. Sorry about trolling around here for about a month but now I'm going to try and post as much as I can. If any of the Richmond shooters ever want to talk Glocks feel free to PM me.

Thanks

Lawcox... you mean the Nat'l forest range on 460 past Blacksburg?

lawcox
06-02-2004, 23:06
Darkmage,
No, there is a Wythe range just north of Wytheville on 77 North. Before the first tunnel, take the exit, turn left at the stop sign, take the first right (there is a sign from the road), go up to the gate, take the road to the left, then drive about a half mile to the parking area. You have to walk about 100 yards up to the range unless you have a handicapped tag. It's a national forest range, and the website says that frames are normally kept up there, but don't count on it. I've been up there three or four times in the past couple of months, and I have yet to see them. The range has a couple of 100 yard lanes, and a few 25 yard lanes.
Also, don't go up there after it rains unless you have a four wheel drive vehicle. The road up to the range gets ruts in it and is very muddy for a day or so after a rain.

I went down and paid them a visit a while back and you couldn't ask for a nicer bunch of folks.

VERY Family oriented with a snack area and a very good stock of shooting, LEO and tactical accessories. A good 'atmosphere' for introducing newbies or a shooting 'date.'

If you're in the area give them a try.

They are a bit hard to find but worth the effort.

Any va glockers know what range im talkin about?

That's Shooters Inc.

The main problem with Shooters is that you cannot carry LOADED..even with a permit. It's posted on the front door....Go figure...I stopped going there a few years ago...

The Marksman in Newport News is the same way. I told them if they're going to deny me my 2A/SD rights then I'll deny them my $$. A good friend of mine works there so it was a cordial conversation. He explained it is managements view that if something happens in the store then they (store employees) are going to shoot anyone with a gun, so they don't want the good guys carrying. I told them I thought that was ludicrous and I've never stepped foot in there again. Too dangerous.

I run the indoor USPSA competition at Shooters Paradise (www.shooterspsradise.com) in Woodbridge, Virginia . Our USPSA/IPSC matches are usually the third wednesday of the month from 3 to 9 PM; pre-registration/ time slot request is required & all info found on www.shootersparadise.com .

Never shot USPSA/IPSC before? New shooters welcome. We also have a comprehensive class for USPSA/IDPA; no experience needed. Why shoot USPSA or IDPA? Ever shoot your Glock in complete darkness using only a Surefire light to illuminate the target? We have had 2 dark stages since our match began last year. We set a record last time with an 82 round course of fire. Every match features a classifier and at least one stage with shooting on the move.

We also have IDPA style matches run by Glock Talk's own Helmie Ashible (owner of I-Shot) & Grand Master Phil Strader (Range owner). Fans of IDPA may remember Phil's epic Glock battle with David Sevigny at the last IDPA National Championship (Winter Nationals); both of these Glock supermen fought tooth, nail & bullet for the win with Sevigny narrowly edging out Phil in the last stages.

For fans of Cowboy Action/SASS, we have a good selection single actions and cowboy rifles (both original pre-1898 and reproductions) for sale in the pro shop.

And finaly, we have GLOCKS!! We have rental guns for you to try out different models before you buy (small rental fee; no home/reloaded ammo/must use store ammo for these). We sell the complete Glock line & will order you any Glock not in stock. Special discounts on blue lable/LEO only Glocks for law enforcement w/ credentials. We also sell used Glocks when they become available & even have the .22 conversion units from time to time. Hope to see everyone there!

Gman67: congrats on the new job! Gilberts is good place & you co-workers are all cool guys; esp Tim & master gunsmith Tim. Enjoy.

If you haven't been by Shooters Paradise lately, it's definitely worth the trip. We just finished a huge renovation on the store, and it truly looks like a different place. It's unbelievable the difference some paint, new carpet, walls, and gun cabinets make. If you're in the No. Va area, you should stop by.

There is a security training range that is open to the public just outside Harrisonburg off I-81 exit 243 in vicinity of Early Road. I don't remember the name of it, I just shoot there when I am in town. Possibly called Top Gun.

For any interested in membership at Rivanna Rifle and Pistol Club, I can brief them on the procedure. It's not that hard,but requires a month long wait. I'm reasonably local and can give folks a tour as a guest if my schedule allows it.

I shoot at Straight Shooters in Colonial Heights. Lane, the owner is a great guy and a Glock Armorer. I work in Petersburg so it'e super easy for me to stop on my way home from work. He's got about 6 or 7 lanes there and is reasonably priced. $8 an hour if you buy his ammo and $15 if you bring your own. It's not the greatest facility in the world, but I would rather have excellent customer service over that any day, and thats what I get at SS.

I'll add another range to the growing list. Potts Slope. Its about 7 miles past New Castle on 311. They have approx 12 or so benches and target stands at 25, 50 and 100 yards. Its covered and there is a restroom there also. The range is in the national forest so theres no charge. Its usually not too busy and open until dark. http://www.fs.fed.us/r8/gwj/newcastle/recreation/shooting_ranges/index.shtml

I don't know if this was mentioned somewhere in here but does anyone know of a place to shoot in the winchester / strasburg area? I know there are private clubs but there doesn't seem to be a range for us common folk.

If anyone knows of a proper range or heck, even a field that people can use for shooting it would be much appreciated.

Thanks neighbors

I go to "The Range" In Fredericksburg off Rt. 1 too. I have been looking for somewhere in the area where I can shoot rifles and shotguns, Does anyone know of a place? I'd be satisfied with an old tree to shoot at. I've got a clay pitcher but no where to use it. I don't want to have to drive far through the traffic everytime I want to go shooting. I live in the Fredericksburg/Spotsylvania area and if anyone can point me out a place, I'd be much appreciative.

As a member of Ridge Rifle Assoc in Fincastle, VA I do most of my shooting there but have shot on several of the National Forest ranges in this area. It's been years but the Wythe range is very primitive and requires you to park at the bottom of a dirt path and walk up to the range area. Might have been improved by now. The Blacksburg range is nicer and paved but you still have to park below and walk up a hill to shoot. There is a handicap parking spot at the top which if vacant you can pull into to unload then repark. Not the greatest if you have more stuff than you can carry in one trip and are shooting alone. You'll have to leave stuff unattended as you either go get your car or carry your stuff down. The Potts Slope range is the best of the three I've shot at. Close in, level parking, never too crowded, covered shooting positions with benches and seats. Best of the best for a public range,

Couple of people have mentioned Straight Shooters in Colonial Heights (20min drive from the city of Richmond). Had my first experience there this weekend, the only prior range experience was Dominion (Southside of Richmond), which has also been mentioned. SS seemed really unorganized. The old man that worked the counter seemed more involved with babysitting his grandson than helping customers (Me and my friend). Bring your own ammo for $15 was cool, but they only had like 7 lanes, and they weren't very long either. I'd guess the full length was like 12yds, max. I also didn't have to sign a waiver, didn't have my ID checked or anything, which seemed a little sketchy. Also, when I left, I wanted to talk to the guy about buying some magazines they had for my glock, so I stood there while he talked to one of his buddies for like 3 mins, got annoyed and left.

I guess you get what you pay for at this range. Crappy service, crappy facility. I'll give it another couple of tries though, could've just been an off day.

Silver Eagle Group in Ashburn (Loudoun County, Northern Virginia)

Nice ranges, very new, good ventilation system, can rent guns (including full auto). 2 50-foot and a 100-foot range. Not as cheap as NRA range, but about the same price as Blue Ridge for a yearly membership. You can also just show up and shoot for $25 an hour. I don't believe there are any caliber/ammo restrictions, but you should check the site to make sure.

I shoot at Dominion off of Midlothian Turnpike. It's impossible to find the first time you go; the place is half hidden by a car garage's lot.

The pro's of Dominion: most of the staff are ok, and it is basically the only shooting range in Richmond.

The cons: have to buy their ammo, about 2/3 of the target returns don't work, a lot of the time you get stuck waiting in line to shoot, and it seems a bit on the expensive side.

Anyone have any news about the range opening in Evington just off of 460 near Lynchburg? Drove by the other day and saw they had broken ground and done some foundations. Curious as to when it'll be completed.

Despite the expense, I always enjoyed going to Dominion when I lived in Richmond.

Ok yall Ive looked all through this site looking for a solution to what im looking for. To make a long story short, I'm planning a bachelor party and the groom wants to go shooting during the day. We'd like to be able to fire my .40, 45, 12 ga, 30-06, and .223. Most of these guys have never been around guns but are interested so I'm hoping to inspire a few more gun owners/enthusiasts as well as have a good time with a little friendly competition. Ive talked to Dominion and a few other ranges but they are all very expensive just to get the 5-6 of us on the range (I already know ammo is expensive so that's not the issue) and/or don't allow the .223 or 30-06. Does anyone know of a place that would be relatively inexpensive and be able to shoot most if not all of my weapons? Ive been talking with a few friends trying to see if anyone might have some or know someone who has some property that we could set up something at but have come up empty. Thought this would be a good place to pick some brains and see if anyone knew of a place that might work. Thanks for the help!

I presume it is too late (since I didn't see this thread until today) but if it isn't, you might want to consider The Cove. A camp ground near Winchester, VA that has a rifle range. 100 yd range and main limitation is no tracers. http://www.covecampground.com/TargetRange.html

No indoor ranges here. I can drive a mile up the road to a HUGE flat piece of land and shoot all I want and anytime I want. Usually I'm the only one there. Pack up the steel targets and whatever else I can find to shoot and just go. In some ways I think it's better than an indoor range. I have at least 600-700 yards in some places.

Augusta Springs has a public shooting range. Thats where i usually go. Theres no supervision out there, and sometimes you have to watch out for yahoos. Only ever had 1 problem, and it was handled with an apology. (Guy's son's girlfriend was sweeping over the shooting lane with a loaded SKS. I walked behind her and the father took the hint.)

You can also shoot just about any target you want as long as you clean it up.

Anyone have any news about the range opening in Evington just off of 460 near Lynchburg? Drove by the other day and saw they had broken ground and done some foundations. Curious as to when it'll be completed.

Despite the expense, I always enjoyed going to Dominion when I lived in Richmond.

The Range is on Sunburst Rd in Evington and is called Lynchburg Arms & Shooting Range. They have 6 lanes and it is $10 an hour to shoot. You can use your own ammo. I was happy with my experience there, and will go back whenever I'm in Lynchburg.

I shoot at Bob's in Norfolk. I was there today. I work near there so its easy to go on my lunch break.
Until November of last year when I moved into town, I was able to shoot in a field behind my house. They are building a house too close to that spot so we can't shoot there anymore.
