No shot larger than 7½ on this range.

No handling weapons during a 'Cold Range'

We are moving the range flag to be more obvious and understandable. It will be located to the left of the shotgun range and downstream from the clubhouse. The other range safety flag at the entrance by the turkey shoot building still needs to be put up, if the range is active, New members are now given a coupon for a free shoot at the range. Give it a try! Loaner shotguns are available at the range. Free advice and limited coaching is available from range operators. Of note, as part of our shotgun range safety and habitat enhancement effort, the shotgun committee has purchased 175 seedlings from the state of Virginia including white oak, chestnut, persimmon, dogwood, crabapple, and elderberry. The seedlings will be delivered in March and committee members are coordinating with the conservation committee chair and our sponsored scout organizations to ensure success of this effort. Special thanks to Maddy M, a scout troop leader for taking this on as an Eagle scout project. Maddy and our scouts are planning four separate working party efforts to cover preparations and the actual planting of the seedlings in March.
The trap range opens Sundays, from 10:00 am - 2:00 pm, for members and up to four sponsored guests who want to shoot clay targets from electric throwers. The cost of shooting a round of 25 at the trap range on Sundays is $5 for members and $6 for guests.

Volunteer RSOs run the shotgun range from 10:00 am - 2:00 pm. There are loaner guns available at the range, if you want to shoot and do not own a shotgun. This is a safe environment to teach shotgun skills to new users, including appropriate children. Many range personnel are shotgun instructors. The cost of shooting a round of 25 at the trap range on Sundays is $5 for members and $6 for guests.

At any other time, Members only may use the shotgun range with their own targets and throwers from 9am until sunset.

Groups of four or more may request a special opening of the range by appointment on days other than Sunday. A range operator must be available to run the range. Email the Shotgun Committee Chair to request a group appointment.
