Blue Ridge

I made my first visit to Blue Ridge with my MP5.

They seemed to be cool and checked my Form 4 before allowing me to shoot. Requested that I and the others in my group shoot no more than 5 round bursts at a time.

The RSOs walked around and did not bother me at all.

The cost is a little high but it is close to my hosue and they do allow FA shooting so I will get a family membership there.

VA Arms in Manassas seems to be the cheapest shop in the noVA region. i checked out Guns and Ammo Warehouse in Manassas (prices were a little bit higher), Gliberts in S-field(prices are a rip-off), Blue-Ridge (prices seem ok), and Loudon Guns (prices were ok).

How so?

Monthly membership is $10 + $10/hour to shoot. Yearly membership ($215 to $235 with no hourly fees) comes with gun and accessory discounts, family plans, and guest passes.
I think he was referring to the prices of guns, not range/membership fees. The fees are VERY reasonable, IMHO; you'll be able to do better on the prices of guns off the internet and doing a $20 transfer w/Virginia Arms.

BTW, full auto is OK at Gilberts, and you don't have to shoot their ammo. You can pick up (your own) brass, too. No rifle-caliber rounds, tho.

I miss Shooters Paradise, but Gilberts is the next best thing in this area.

Very few shops can compete with internet prices. Prices are cheaper if you are a range member. Gilbert will do transfers from other dealers (but not distributers) for $25 (was $15 forever until a change in ownership).

Gilberts lists two prices for their guns, one for members and the other for non-members. I'm not going to join to be a member just to get the lower discount. If I was buying multiple guns each month, then yeah, it makes sense. Their member only prices are a little higher than VA Arms.

Also I live closer to BlueRidge so that extra money I save by shooting at Gilberts, I end up losing it anyway with the gas costs to go to Gilberts.

Bottomline: VA Arms has the best prices around (in my opinion) and transfers are only $20. They don't carry much sporting long guns like hunting rifles/shotguns so I either buy online and transfer it through them or head down to Greentop near Richmond.

And that's just fine for you. For me, Gilbert SAR is closer to me than any other range, and if lowest price is one's goal, then wait for the next show in Chantilly.

I just ordered a Henry Mini Bolt for my daughter's birthday. I called Gilbert SAR on a Tuesday, and they had it in their store on Friday. I got it for around $215 (discounted). For a range, there aren't many places in the Metro area that compare to Gilberts range fees, rules, and service (not to mention, they don't have the attitude we often see at many shops).
