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.

I usually shoot at the National Forest range on 460 past Blacksburg. I have also shot many times at Potts Slope.

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.

Bachelor Party

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
