    They need to do some confirmation of their list.... Shooters Paradise is listed, posted 8/08, long after it closed. Makes me wonder about the accuracy of the rest of the list.

    Regarding using the shooting range at the Chickahominy Wildlife Management Area, it is a violation of DGIF rules to carry a loaded concealed handgun while driving on any WMA property!

    http://www.dgif.virginia.gov/hunting...s/wmarules.pdf

    The following is an excerpt from the above link.
    Firearms

    It is unlawful to have in possession or in a vehicle a bow or gun which is not
    unloaded and cased or dismantled except when it is lawful to take bear,
    deer, grouse, pheasants, quail, rabbit, raccoon, squirrel or turkey; and additionally,
    migratory game birds on Department owned lands east of the Blue Ridge; or by permit issued by the Department; or by concealed handgun permit issued by a Circuit Court.

    It is unlawful to possess or transport a loaded gun in or on any vehicle at any time on a WMA.

    Target shooting is permitted on designated ranges only.
    I spoke with the game warden at the Charles City County office (804-829-6580), and was told that I must unload my handgun at the property line before driving onto the WMA. Once I reach the shooting range, I would be free to reload after I stepped out of my vehicle. Alternatively, I could park at the entrance and walk anywhere with my loaded concealed handgun
    A law-abiding citizen should be able to carry his personal protection firearm anywhere that an armed criminal might go.
