It took 10 years of hiccups and starts and stops, but I'm finally leaving the shithole that is MD

Bought a house in Alvaton and move down in a few weeks. I believe i'm 15 to 20 minutes away from Bowling Green.

So what's the best gun store around? I saw Sherwoods was recommended in another thread, anyone else?

Also looking for an outdoor range where I can finally stretch a few of my rifles legs, if anyone has recommendations.

It's dumb, but I'm excited to be able to have full cap magazines shipped directly to me MD is backwards and you can own and use a standard cap magazine, but you can't buy, ship, deliver, or transfer a standard cap mag. So my go to has been buying at a gun show in virginia a few times a year.

Now I have to figure out how it all fits in my pickup to get down there

Edit: Also looking for some good training facilities within a few hours. Open to suggestions

Been a few years since I moved out of Bowling Green. Sherwoods is a good shop. Cheek Brothers is a nice little shop out in the sticks in Scottsville.

Sherwood is a good dude I'll vouch for any day.

Thanks for the warm welcome all.

Went to sherwoods the other day and got a beauty of a used CZ SP-01 that I can't wait to shoot. Probably will go try their indoor range this weekend.

Once the weather gets warmer (or once I unpack the rest of my shooting gear, whichever comes first), where is a good outdoor range?

I want one that allows drawing from holster and ideally has areas to allow moving and shooting. I belonged to a really nice range called peacemaker national training center in WV when I lived in MD and hope for something similar down here.

I'm ok with driving an hour to get to a good outdoor range.

Help the new guy out

I don't know where, in easy driving distance, has an outdoor range since the one up by Mammoth Cave shut down.

how far does their rifle line go?

A lot of the ranges i've been too in the past were seated ranges, and that's gotten boring for me unless i'm doing long range. I'd really like to join one that allows movement.

I found one called Strategic Edge that has a 1250 line as well as pistol / carbine bays, but that's 2 hours from me in Chapel Hill TN. I'm really hoping I can find an equivalent to that closer

Green River Gun Club does indeed have a 2-3 year waiting list right now.

midtnsportingassociation.com has memberships available now and is less than an hour away from Alvaton.
