Thanks for the wisdom. I'll do my best not to get lost in the minutae.
In terms of shooting in the area, I have three places that I frequent....
Clark Brothers Guns in Warrenton: Clark Brothers Guns | Warrenton, Virginia, gun dealer, dealers, ffa, ammo, antique, rare, handguns, shooting range
The range is only 100 yards and you have to buy your ammo or reloading supplies from the gun shop. It's how they keep the range "free"
Sleepy Creek WMA in West Virginia: West Virginia DNR - Shooting Ranges
This range has a 200 yard maximum.
And for the 1k shooting....Quantico MCB
