Our next CMP event will be a USPSA Steel Challenge Match, May 7, 2022 Rain, sun, or cold we shoot. Please show up at 0800-0815 to register and attend the safety brief at 0830, we will go hot at 0900. You must be present for the safety brief to participate in the match. If you would like to help set up , come down earlier, I will be there at 0730. Bring your firearm in good working condition and 250 rounds of the proper ammunition for it. There will be a mix of static and reactive steel targets. We will have two stages on the rifle range and two stages on the pistol range. If you're using a center fire pistol, bring multiple mags and a holster, you are not required to use a holster if you're using a rimfire pistol. Rimfire rifles and PCC's require an empty chamber indicator. If you don't have one, we will give you one. As always, the cost of the match is $20 for members and $30 for nonmembers, Jr's are free. Hope to see you all there this is always a fun match! Ed Macbride edmacbride[AT]comcast[DOT]net Virginia Junior Marksmanship Program: VJMP is an organization that encourages youth participation in the shooting sports. Members of the team range from 13 to 20 years old. We focus on teaching marksmanship and competing in High Power Rifle competitions, using an AR-15 Match Rifle, that test the skills of competitors on a known distance course of 200, 300 and 600 yards. This is known as shooting Across the Course (XTC). We started this season with five Juniors, training in the IWLA Clubhouse on Wednesday nights and competing in local matches. They started at the end of April by competing at Fairfax Rod & Gun Club in their High Power Spring League and have been competing in their bi-monthly matches since then, applying what they have been practicing and learning how to score and "pull pits." We plan to finish the season with a trip to Camp Butner, NC to compete in the NC State XTC Championship and the IWLA CMP rifle match in October. Leonard Hawkins e4hgator[AT]gmail[DOT]com The rifle range is selling reloadable brass for $3 per pound. Brass is most available in common calibers (.9mm, .45, .223 etc.). Email inquiries about brass availability to rocketmike90[AT]gmail[DOT]com Ed MacBride has been making updates to the rifle/pistol range. He is planning excavations to improve the berms and range surface. Check the web site and Facebook before coming to the range for closings due to construction or activities. The pistol range has been extended to 60 yards to accommodate longer range handguns. A right of way for power and access has also been established. Construction of a berm to separate the rifle/pistol ranges is complete.

Our Rifle & Pistol Ranges include:

  • A 14 point (12 covered and 2 point uncovered) outdoor 100 yard rifle range
  • A 10 point (8 bench and 2 draw from holster) outdoor 60 yard pistol range

To use the facilities you must be a member or the member's immediate family (member's spouse, dependents under 18 years of age, or grandchildren under 18 years of age). Membership includes use of the facilities for members of your household when accompanied by you.

Members have use of the range facilities during the daylight hours (9:00 am to sunset). Members may bring two guests to the monthly guest shoot (usually the first Sunday of the month). Members only may use the range at any other time.

Guest shoots have a guest fee. The member may bring their immediate family members and they are not charged guest fees.

Be sure to display your membership card while at the ranges. You cannot shoot without a membership card.

Empty Chamber Indicators (ECIs) are required on the ranges. The Chapter has ECI's at no cost to members. As an alternative you can make a homemade ECI. Simply tape bright duct tape to a long zip tie like a flag, and use that as an ECI. It works great & serves the purpose.

Please reuse the backers if you take them from the range. If you have a source of backers, bring them to the range shed.
Police used brass to keep the range clean for everyone.

If you are showing a gun to someone at the range, do it during a 'HOT' range and at the benches on the firing line.

Guest Shoot at Rifle/Pistol Range:
A limited guest policy has been initiated at the rifle/pistol range to encourage members to bring guests to eventually become new members. On the first Sunday of every month, members can sign up on the website to create up to two complimentary guest passes to allow guests to shoot at the range. There are two half day sessions (9 - 12 in the morning or 12:30 - 3:30 in the afternoon). RSOs will be present on guest days to monitor and control the range.

RSOs Needed:
The Chapter has approved rules that will allow RSOs to sign up on the website to bring up to two guests per day as compensation for RSO volunteer service. This benefit will be for a 3 hour session similar to the regular monthly rifle/pistol guest sessions, but can be performed on any day the range is open. The guest pass hold harmless agreement should be placed in the box under the Caretaker's car port.
In order for RSOs to be eligible for this benefit they must have a current NRA RSO certification, current IWLA range rules certification, and have performed at least 4 hours of RSO volunteer service within the previous 12 months.
The vouchers may also be used at the archery range (but not the shotgun range).

No guests are allowed on the ranges except under the conditions mentioned above!

Range Safety Committee:
The Range Safety Committee meets on the third Sunday of the month at 11 am (before the member meeting). Anyone with safety issues or interests is invited to attend.
