Rifles must be cased and left in vehicle until after the Safety Briefing. Do Not bring your firearms out until instructed to bring them to the firing line. No loaded firearms on the range unless on the firing line and load command has been given. Eye and ear protection required. No illegal firearms are allowed. Some ranges are .22 rimfire only. At ranges that allow centerfire no rifle cartridges over 8mm cal are allowed.
Range Fee: None
Primitive camping, no camper hookups. There is potable water and an outdoor hot shower (the water heater is very small --- think 'navy showers'!). There are a few electrical outlets available on the range, if you need to charge a battery, etc. Email ahead of time with your ETA as range is normally locked off to public. But riflemen are always welcome (riflemen2B even more so).

Fred: The 'Mecca' of the Appleseed program, the Home Range of the RWVA, with popup targets out to 500 yards. If our instructors are willing to drive long distances to be on this range, maybe you should take the hint! EVERY Appleseed at this location offers the opportunity for a FULL-DISTANCE AQT out to 400 yards. Find out for yourself if the oft-stated 'it's easier at the full-distance than at 25m' comment is really true. So, definitely bring the big bore along with the .22! And, I'll see you there!
Appleseed is now presenting instruction is the use of handguns.
Attendees need to bring an Outside the belt holster, (no cross draw or shoulder holsters), At least 250 rounds of ammo (the same as marked on the pistol), two magazines , hearing protection, eye protection and anything else they would normally bring to the range. Any pistol calibre is allowed as long as they can shoot it all day. We discourage large magnum rounds such as 460 S&W, 44 magnum. This is a beginning pistol course that teaches fundamentals of shooting and safe handling of the pistol.
RBC (Riflemans Boot Camp)
Please bring a Centerfire Rifle with at least 200 rounds. Also bring a .22 rifle. Also a small notebook.
