Eumm, ok. But near what major city?
Thanks

Directions:www.nrahq.org/shootingrange/nrahqrange/directions.asp
The NRA Headquarters and NRA Range are located at:
11250 Waples Mill Road
Fairfax, Virginia 22030
Telephone: (703) 267-1400

From the Washington beltway (I-495), take I-66 west to Exit 57-A onto U.S. Route 50 East toward Fairfax. On Route 50, turn left at the first traffic light, onto Waples Mill Road. The blue and white NRA Headquarters building will be on your right. The NRA Range is located at the rear of the building, on the north side. Bear left as you enter the parking lot and go toward the rear lower-level parking garage.

Range Fees:www.nrahq.org/shootingrange/nrahqrange/fees.asp
NRA Members - $12.00 per hour/per lane.
Additional shooter sharing a lane with a member - additional $8.00 per hour/per lane.

Non-members - $15.00 per hour/per lane.
Additional shooter sharing a lane with a non-member - additional $10.00 per hour/per lane.

Shooters under the age of 18 sharing a lane with an adult - free


50 yards, rifles up to .460 Weatherby Magnum are fine, rapid fire is fine although I don't think they allow full auto during normal range hours. If you've never been there before there's a written saftey test you are required to take and there'll be a small charge for the laminated range card that shows you've taken the test. You can't fail the test, any questions you miss they'll review with you so you know the correct answer.
Link Posted: 5/21/2003 5:13:04 AM EDT
I'll be there.

Link Posted: 5/21/2003 1:27:51 PM EDT
Looks like I'm not going to make it out of here in time to make it there by 7 or even 7:30.

I'll try, but don't expect me.

ANGST, Friday will probably work for me
Link Posted: 5/21/2003 6:07:27 PM EDT
Nova, we didn't leave until around 8:30 so you should have come out.
Link Posted: 5/21/2003 6:32:41 PM EDT

I'm going to try to make it next wednesday, even if I have to fire in neutered mode.
I'm in Tysons Corner. It's cool WALKING to The Sports Authority for $13/100 Winchester 9mm!

Maybe I'll drag along the 1917 vintage 1911......

Howdy Neighbor! You're near the the best lil burger joint in NoVA, Burgerland 22.

Let's hook up on Wed nite. FYI, my name is Stevan.
Link Posted: 5/22/2003 6:52:55 AM EDT
Damn, sorry I missed it guys. I didn't leave the office til about 8.

ANGST...W-W turned me on to Burgerland 22.... definely worth trying.
Link Posted: 5/22/2003 6:57:16 AM EDT
Well, I had a lot of fun thanks to Hopo and SHIVAN.
My only advice is to take a jacket. You could see your breath on the range!!

[Last Edit: 5/22/2003 7:02:59 AM EDT by ANGST]
No !!!!!!! Not Burgerland 22 !!(though it would be a good name for a wildcat ... the .22 Burgerland)

I seriously try to avoid that place , and China King, and Mr.Hero (Mr.Hero had a Million Mom March poster in their window).

Baja Fresh , or the Mediteranian Grill is where its at
Link Posted: 5/22/2003 7:04:13 AM EDT
Wednesday nights are always kinda hard for me, but FWIW, ill be at the NRA range at 830AM this saturday morning, while its still raining and others are still sleeping in.

If anybody can make it, that would be great. I've met some of you folks - like Shivan and LS and Cliffy but it would be great to meet more of ya.

CHINA KING?>>>sorry ya lost me on that one!
Has anyone been to the French Vietnamese place near Staples?

China King is just to the right of Burgerland 22 its that quasi fast food chineese place.


The vietmaneese place is pretty good too. Been there a few times.
Link Posted: 5/22/2003 7:22:22 AM EDT
I stopped going to Baja Fresh once Chipotle opened near me.

Anyone been there?

Don't get me wrong, Baja is great...but Chipotle is better.
Link Posted: 5/22/2003 7:28:15 AM EDT
OK ,you guys suck, now I have to goto Baja Fresh for lunch :)
Link Posted: 5/22/2003 7:33:00 AM EDT
Chipotle in the former Black Eye Pea on Eldon?
If so I read it closed down.

I know China King it's a chain I could live without. My kids like it and it cheap enough so we seem to have it in the house a few times a month. I like the Chinese joint on Elden at Spring st in the strip mall. For delivery only. I have a real problem with Chinese food here as I lived not too far from Chinatown in Manhattan for many years.

I'm spoiled-
Link Posted: 5/22/2003 7:46:35 AM EDT
No, it's near Chick Filet (sp?) on Sunset Hills across from Target - near the new YMCA.

It's pretty similar to Baja, but I find the meat more flavorful...they also sell BEER!

That near that new Italian place...I want to try them both. The place on Elden that closed was the somthin'or other Smoke House across from the Tortilla Factory. If you like Tamales and other simple fare try Teocale Tamale behind the new McDonalds on Elden.
Link Posted: 5/22/2003 12:44:47 PM EDT
Yup, it's near the Italian place. There's also a small restaurant next to the Chipotle that I haven't tried yet. It looks like a sandwich shop.

I'll have to try that tamale place. Do they have pupusas?

I can't tell you about pupusas their...I get them at a Peruvian joint on Rt 7 by the Shoppers Food Warehouse just west of Dranesville Rd...Actually the Shoppers there has Pupusas in the Dairy section.
