    Greetings,

    I just relocated back to Northern Virginia. Was wondering what a good trap club would be to shoot some practice trap on weekends. I have seen the VA trap web site, looks like a lot of good options! Tnx in Advance

    Mike,

    Most are private-Fairfax and IWLA. PG County in MD has a public range as does Bull Run in Manassas. All are open to the public for registered shooting, of course.

    HOW EVER FairFax and IWLA does shoot for practice during the week. Call them and see what time they do. In our club we welcome new shooters all the time. They may do the same even if your not a member. We are a friendly group.

    Public ranges: Bull Run is in Centreville. Their trap range is ok for just casual shooting. I see more serious trap shooters hang out at Prince George's Country Trap and Skeet (in Maryland) than at Bull Run. I never recalled Bull Run holding any registered trap shoots, at least since I have been shooting there (mid 2008) just registered sporting clays shoots. Does anyone know when they hold registered trap shoots there?


    There is an all around long range rifle/handgun/shotgun range in West Virginia, just past Charles Town.

    It's slightly over an hour from Dulles Airport. Although they sell memberships, you can still shoot as a non-member on some of the "open to the public" ranges. If I was more into rifle and handgun shooting, I would make the trip out to this place more often. I only shot sporting clays there and thought it was a nice place, especially considering there isn't a lot of ranges within an hour or two drive of DC that where you can shoot trap/skeet/sporting clays as well as handgun and rifle all in one place.


    If you need to buy shotgun shells in bulk (Rio, Estate, Kent), contact Sam Work. I think right now, Kent stopped making target shells for the year so for bulk shells, it's either Rio or Estates. Contact him for current pricing:

    If you can contact Fairfax and get the chance to shoot therein, they are the nicest group. I have not had a chance to go back but i shot with Lacy and his wife on a cold day and they were great hosts.
