    Lately, they have advertisements in the local northern VA newspapers. (Loudoun times, Centre View) A quick look at their website shows a pretty elitist indoor 50yd range (handles .50bmg) and a "commercial aircraft training platform". Other membership details include:
    • Executive boardroom
    • Gym
    • Concierge service
    • Kimber 1911 and Bushmaster rifle "gift"
    • Private workrooms
    • Unlimited FFL transfers
    • Free NFA rental
    class="forumText"It's sounds like a military contractor's hangout spot... Anybody have any more information? Particularly membership prices?

    It is really geared towards the business CEO that can afford the over-priced range.

    You have phone and computers for your use along with a meeting room.

    You can work out and shoot while you wait and you get your own locker.

    Write it all off in taxes at the end of the year!!!!

    Swat teams and law enforcement groups from all around the WORLD to come here to Virginia and train in their scenario range. I went to the meetings and heard the pitches. If you have that kind of money.. great.

    Some other things that bothered me:

    No loaded firearms beyond the front gate (except for Law Enforcement).

    Backround check on all members..

    First 10 memberships sold:

    Individual
    - $30,000 lifetime initiation fee plus, monthly dues of $350, and this includes one locker

    Family- $50,000 lifetime initiation fee plus, monthly dues of $325 per locker. you may have up to 2lockers

    after the first ten are sold the price goes up.


    Second 10 memberships sold:

    Individual - $40,000 lifetime initiation fee plus, monthly dues of $350, and this includes one locker

    Family - $60,000 lifetime initiation fee plus, monthly dues of $325 per locker. you may have up to 2 lockers

    after the second ten are sold the price goes up to the normal selling price in which it will stay until the founders membership tier is retired in 2009.


    Normal Selling Price:

    Individual - $50,000 lifetime initiation fee plus, monthly dues of $350, and this includes one locker

    Family - $75,000 lifetime initiation fee plus, monthly dues of $325 per locker. you may have up to 2 lockers.

    ...snipped
    SWAT teams may train there... but I doubt they have monthly memberships.

    The cost far exceeds what you are going to get out of the place if you are there just to shoot.

    Keeping in mind... this is a club and not just a shooting range.

    The Men's shower/locker area is male only - so where does that leave you?

    You could be left holding the bag.

    actually background checks are pretty common for "memberships" at ranges, most will waive the check if you have a valid chp as that proves you've passed a background check already. It cuts down on the possibility of one of your "members" being arrested and being exposed as a convicted felon who by the way is a member of such and such gun club when the story hits the papers. Most of the rent as you go ranges don't have this but "clubs" appear to.

    The fiancee and I will probably be dropping by sometime on Saturday looking for freebies. I doubt I will get any range time in as it sounds like these are the type of people who would frown upon me dumping spectacular amount of rounds with my ak...
