Chapter Calendar


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

No shot larger than 7½ on this range.

No handling weapons during a 'Cold Range'

There are five loaner guns (two 20-gauge youth, full size 20 gauge and two 12 gauge) available at the range, if you want to shoot and don’t own a shotgun. This is a safe environment to teach shotgun skills to new users, including appropriate children. Many range personnel are shotgun instructors. Stafford Shooters: The 2020-21 Stafford Clay Shooters Youth Team is sponsored by the Chapter. If you have or know of a youth interested in shotguns, hunting or trap shooting have them contact the coaches through the this website. Grant awards from the NRA Foundation for the last six years has provided clay targets and shotgun ammunition for this youth team. The awards average around $3000 and this year’s award was valued at $3200. Peter Wettergreen 703-608-8050

The shotgun range will open Sundays, from 10:00 am - 2:00 pm, for members who want to shoot clay targets from electric throwers. RSO volunteers run the shotgun range during this time and members can bring up to four non-members. The cost of shooting a round of 25 at the trap range on Sundays is $5 for members and $6 for guests.

Members only may use the shotgun range with their own targets and throwers any time (from 9am until sunset) when the trap range is not open.

Groups of four or more may request a special opening of the range by appointment on days other than Sunday. A range operator must be available to run the range. Email AJ Pappas (chair) to request a group appointment.
