It was closed down for awhile apparently, and i was wondering if anyone near there knew if it was open yet or not, my glock needs it's weekly workout.

I heard that it's open again. I haven't been there lately though because when it closed because of that fire, I joined the Christiansburg Izzak Walton League and have been using their range.

I was there last weekend, only like a couple of days ago. It was open. Didn't see any sort of fire damage or anything. Friend got me scared when he called me up and told me he read on ar15.com that they had closed t he blacksburg range. I thought he meant for good.

There is also a private gun club a little west of there. I believe it's called the Shawnee hunt club, my ex's dad is a member and they allow full auto. Outdoor range

I'm a former member of the Shawnee Club, the only reason I left was because I moved far enough away to make the drive to Newport a bit of a PITA. Good bunch of people, and the range is excellent (the last time I was up there was 1999, so YMMV).

Name sounds familiar, but I couldn't place the face. I see Betty and Clarence every now and then, but John I'm drawing a blank on.
