New guy from out of state

Postby 95taco » Tue, 09 May 2017 16:30:26

Hello, I'm Jake, I'm moving from the gulf coast of Ms to Charlottesville 2 weeks from today.
I've never shot in competitions or anything like that but I shoot fairly regularly, I'd like to get into competitions as well as introduce a friend of mine to more advanced shooting, she has shot recreationally before and I think she would really enjoy shooting competitively.

Here is the gun I shoot the most, my 7.5" 556 SBR or "The Noisy Cricket" as my friend refer to it as.

Agreed! Charlottesville is bluer than Comey being jobless.

You need to check out the Rivanna Rifle and Pistol Club.
Over 100 acres of ranges for just about anything you can shoot.
Archery, skeet, trap, several outdoor ranges including one 300 yard lane.
Plus the club house with two 25 yard, 6 lane (IIRC) ranges limited to pistols and .22lr rifles.

There are many members here that would be glad to give you a tour. Or you can show up for a Sunday prospective member orientation.

Four boxes to be used in defense of liberty: soap, ballot, jury, ammo - use in that order.
If you aren't part of the solution, then you obviously weren't properly dissolved.
