    I read through the range listings at the top and didn't see any ranges listed that would allow shotguns in the Tidewater area other than the LaFayette Gun Club which is a little far for me to drive (I live in downtown Norfolk). Does anyone know of any places closer to Norfolk (preferably that aren't going to require big membership dues or a drawn out application process) that allows shotguns?

    Give A&P Arms a call over off of Lynnhaven Parkway. Their outdoor range isn't any closer to Norfolk for you but I do believe they still allow shotgun shooting at that range. That's the only place I know of where you don't have to be a member. I would imagine Chesapeake and VA Beach have some fairly remote hunting areas away from homes that would be legal to shoot a shotgun but you'd have to ask others about that. Again not close.

    You can also check out the range at Camp Allen. Very nice range there and I know they allow shotguns (I've shot 12 gauge slugs there several times). I've been told that it is open to the public...it'd be worth a call.

    It isn't open to the public. I shoot there as well but I am retired military. Yes, I would suggest you call first.

    You can shoot shotguns at Lynnhaven

    Camp Allen was closed last week. Might want to call to see if it has re-openned.

    You're correct - it is only open to military, retirees, and government workers. But hey, in this area, that covers an awful lot of folks....
