    Need a range recommendation in the Richmond Area

    Any good ranges? I haven't lived in Richmond that long but I've been shooting at Dominion. It's like shooting in the basement of your house. Terrible lighting and freezing cold. Plus your forced to buy there overpriced ammo. Anywhere around with better facilities? I don't mind having to join a range as long as it's worth it and preferably be able to shoot my own ammo.....or at least buy it at a descent price.

    Both these are within a half-hour drive and you can bring your own ammo...

    Can't find a link Best outdoor facility in the area - covered shooting positions - the scene of many sanctioned matches on week-ends.

    Was $100.00/year, not pro rated, must be a member of NRA, shoot what you got.

    Will receive safety talk, guided tour and rules + a reminder to not speed on range road.

    Wonder if he would host a class III shoot?

    Don't let them hear of you disparaging and of the four legged residents.

    Nice thing is, at least when the range is lightly attended, one can work from the holster - that in itself is a big plus.
