Don't know anything in the Hampton area. Why don't you go down to the fun store and ask where a local rifle range is?

I live in Virginia Beach, and the VA Beach outdoor range is the one I go to as well. It's a pretty nice set-up. Kinda odd at first. There's concrete panels to prevent you from shooting over the backstop. I had been used to wide open ranges, so I found it odd at first. By the end of the first session, I was used to it and I don't even notice them anymore. I've shot there for a little over two years now. If you go more than a few times a year, it's worth getting the membership, which will save you money. The range folks are a great bunch, and it's a very relaxed atmosphere. It's a good place to shoot. Let me know when you want to go, and I'll try to meet up with you. There's quite a few board members down here as well that may be interested. Ross

So, another Virginia shooter?? Welcome to the club!! Ross is a great guy to hang out with. It sounds like he can set you up at the VB range. Take him up on it! There's a good group of us in Richmond, several people in the Western part of the state and the largest group in Northern Virginia. We usually get together twice a year for a big shoot. It's typically been at my place or ~1/2 hour farther West of here. I'll add you to the list next time there's a get-together. There's three NRA classes being taught in late January if interested. Other than that, I'll probably have a shoot in the Spring. Hope to see you then. Black Fox

what type of classes are they?location?day(s)?. i work days during the week, but could probally scam a day off.

Sksboy - the NRA classes are instructor certification courses in Home Defense, Firearm Safety and Handgun if my memory serves me correctly. They will be taught January 19, 20 and 21st. There is some cost to take the class - I'll find out how much it is. I just have the class at my place and take it myself, so I'm not sure about registration/cost. Drop me an e-mail if interested.

SKSBoy- No biggie if your guns aren't here yet. I have a few[:D] you can shoot. Don't think that I'm trying to stop you from buying a gun this week though[;)] Oh yeah, if you haven't done it already, join the VCDL (VA Citizen's Defense League). They're the best bang for the buck as far as fighting for your gun rights right here at home. Ross

I go to college in Blacksburg,VA. Great free range about 5 minutes down the road from me. (Jefferson National Park) Wish they had those in North Carolina (any public ranges around the RDU, NC area? Not that I can find, unless I want to pay money to join a gun club that I'd only take advantage of three or so times a year... :( )
