    The Range in Fredricksburg

    I frequently visit "The Range" in Fredericksburg, but lately i've noticed that their gun selection has twindled in the past few months. They did at one time have a great selection of various handguns for sale. Anyone know why they've cut down lately?

    Virginia has an intangible personal property tax - many firms reduce their on- hand stock just prior to reporting time.

    Huh... I was there yesterday too. Around 5:30pm
    Not a fan of the sign on the front door asking people to unload their guns. Probably won't be back.

    I was told they sold almost their entire inventory before Christmas and are waiting for their distributor to restock.

    As for the sign...Like all public ranges you see all kinds. People comment on the lack of muzzle discipline at gun show all the time, now add live ammo into the mix. Rules are made for those who lack common sense.

    If you leave your loaded handgun in the holster I doubt anyone will say anything to you about it. When I'm standing two feet away from some knuckle head I don't know from Adam, I don't want to see him drawing a loaded firearm and sweeping me with it.

    Haha believe me I've seen some stuff in Norfolk.

    I got swept twice while I was there which is more to do with me not returning than the sign. I ignored the sign.

    As a general rule I don't like any range that is open to the public. Lots of cases of mishandling firearms in my experience. Those with RSOs who actually monitor the shooters are the exception.

    This, I've OC'ed and concealed carry in The Range most every time I've been in there. Leave it in your holster and nothing is said to you. Paul and Bing are good guys.
