Unless you know somebody with acerage, or join a shooting range, you are not going to be able to do much shooting in the Greater Richmond Metro area (or the rest of Virginia).
Most counties have laws against the discharge of firearms off your own property, and the more urbanized ones regulate even that. California, for all that is bad with it, apparently has "public lands". Not so in Virginia.
Thanks for asking before just going out, stopping at a "likely-looking" spot and finding out the hard way.
