A few ideas

Here are a couple of ideas:

Loudoun Guns in Leesburg

Virginia Arms in Manassas

If you want to shoot try Blueridge Arsenal or the NRA range in the HQ building

I think the shops have web sites.

Rather than gun shops you may want to try the Firearms Museum at the NRA Headquarters in Fairfax, plus you can shoot at the range below the building.

Thanks

Thanks for the information. We did the NRA on Monday and it was great. We now want to just cruise around and check out some shops. Loudens we will add to the list as well as a trip to Manassas.

If you have some other spare time, head down to the Marine Corps Museum near Quantico.

Good way to spend half a day to a day.
