    Hello All,

    I only know of one range in my area and it's the one adjacent to VASP. I personally don't like to shoot there as they don't allow you to shot your own ammo.

    So are there any indoor or outdoor ranges (within 25 miles of Richmond) that allow you to shoot your own ammo (45 ACP)?

    Thanks all!

    Black Creek Shooters Association, a private range, is in Mechanicsville. Never checked it out myself, though.

    There's the place in Colonial Heights, used to be called Straight Shooters...not sure of the name now.

    As of last weekend Black Creek was still accepting members.

    7-15yd, 25yd, 50yd, 100yd ranges

    Also a range set up for special events - cowboy action and 3 gun.

    And a trap range that is also a very large 125yd benchrest range.

    The only downside is that KC Young (the guy that owns the place) tends to frown upon rapid fire, and is very insistent that every shot hits the target backers, which are so small on the mid-distance rifle ranges that you can't even fit a full size silhouette.

    Need to be a NRA member, $100 a year.

    It's called the Smoking Gun and it is on the up and up. It's on Rt. 1 in Colonial Heights just before the river if you are going south.

    It's a small mom and pop shop, but they are friendly and let you shoot your own ammo. The owner of the place has an FFL and a few pistols in stock.

    Nice guy, he is a big fan of the VCDL. I would rather take the drive down there than shoot here in Richmond.

    It's small Pro, but it is well-ventilated and the temperature is controlled better than the other range in the area.

    It's not Hollywood style, but you won't break the bank if you just want to shoot some paper targets.

    The best part is you can bring your own ammo.
