    Outdoor Shooting range? (Near Hampton Roads)

    Hey guys, the normal inside gun range is getting old, and I was wondering if anyone here has a decent bit of land in the hampton roads area? I was hoping to shoot handguns only at different targets I'll provide. I will spot you some cash/box of ammo? For letting me shoot outside without the police being called. Cheers

    C2 shooting range is outdoors, WAY out in VB... 1 hour from me, I go sometimes, its nice but the downside it's by the hour... I really like it because they allow rapid fire, and sometimes you get to see someone with a machine gun.

    I think the shooting range on the right is off limits, for leo/mil only, if you want to rent it for non mil/leo training groups its $1,000 a day. Other wise its just the shooting lanes.

    How come a DUI you can get your driver licence back, which it is a privilege. But if commiting a felon, even something non violent like stealing, you are denied your constitutional rights for the rest of your life?
    If you don't support the Second Amendment to the Constitution, what other parts of the Constitution do you reject?
    More restrictions on guns? how about restrictions on chainsaws and knives?

    I was hoping for someone's farmland or the type. Somewhere that reminds me of the 100 acres I used to roam as a kid. I know this is sketchy, but its worth a try

    The Ft. Lee public range at Ft. Lee in Petersburg is outdoors and pretty nice, although it is the only outdoor range I have been too. They have a covered handgun/shotgun range, and then a rifle range that is just under 100yards and you can shoot up to .223/5.56, but from a prone or kneeling position only. $5 an hour and they do sell various paper targets and have movable wooden stands. They didn't allow rapid fire, but bursts where okay. They where open on Sunday from 10a-4p when I went, but I remember reading somewhere they may not be open every weekend or only seasonally so I would call first if you where planning on visiting.

    If you look here on Google Maps, the tower is the bottom right hand corner with stairs going up, in front of that the horizontal covered area is the handgun/shotgun range and to the left the area with the 4 big stadium lights is the rifle range. Farther to the left are ranges that aren't open to the public and used for military training (kinda neat I thought, they definitely let them rapid fire!!!).

    Surry County

    My old family doctor owns a good bit of Surry County. We had a small range setup a few years back. I'll get hold of him to see if we can still go out there.

    Send me a PM and we'll work on it.

    Also interested. (for IPSC style stuff)

    There's a range in Wakefield that might be appropriate but I'm not a member there. I shoot bowling pin matches about 40 feet from the berm on the 50yd range but I'm not sure if you could just walk up and do that as a regular member provided nobody else is at the range.

    I must mention the West Point Gun Club, located in Shackleford, Va.

    Membership is required but you can get in as a guest of a member, no fee.

    It is a 100 yard range.

    Hey, Libtards, it's the "Bill of Rights," not the "Bill of Needs" . . . . .

    If the 2A does not apply to modern weapons, then the 1A does not apply to modern communications like the Internet! How do you like them apples!?

    I have been keeping an eye out for a way to get on with them for a couple years now. Seems everyone I know has a friend or relative that is a member, but they have no interest in becoming a member so that I can mooch a membership off of them.

    I know OP was looking for some farm land to shoot at, but aren't we all... . I can second the suggestion for C2, though. Been there a good amount and never had a bad experience. Just an all around nice place to shoot. The usual staff are helpful and pretty cool to boot.

    I'm a member of LGC and shoot in the practical pistol matches there. Neither the facility nor special arrangements for the matches is comparable to shooting outside with a large field of view and being able to move around while doing so.

    Thanks for the welcome. Let's just say that you guys tend to say what needs to be said when needed.
