Blue Ridge Arsenal is a full line shooting sports store and range facility with a tradition of service to the community since 1989.

Whether you are a professional who needs to maintain their proficiency or on a family outing with the kids, Blue Ridge Arsenal can provide you with the service and support you require. With twenty, 25 yard shooting positions, accommodating up to .50AE handgun caliber firearms and 12 Gauge shotguns (Ammunition Restrictions), we have long been acknowledged as a safe, knowledgeable and friendly environment for both the experienced and novice shooter.

Through rain, sleet, snow and heat you will find us open. On those days when it is too miserable to be out of doors, our enclosed climate controlled facility is an ideal place to meet others or enjoy the shooting sports on your own. We are open 7 days a week and can accommodate group activities or classes with advance notice. Our requirements to use the range are that all shooters must be 21 years of age or accompanied by someone who is; be or be with someone who is familiar with the firearms being used and an experienced shooter; and, upon entering the range have either their own or rented ear and eye protection.

Blue Ridge Arsenal is a public range. We do not require long term membership to shoot here; but, members enjoy benefits that non-members do not. These include discounts on rental firearms, member only sales, no hourly range fees, free guest passes and range use priority. Plus, if you use the range twice or more a month members save money as compared to shooting at the walk-in hourly rate. And, for those shooters who are looking for that special handgun, don’t own a handgun but enjoy shooting, want to test fire a particular or similar handgun model before buying, or, just want to shoot something different, we have a large selection of rental firearms. Our rental fee for most of these firearms is $15.00 and we require you use our range ammo, purchased at the time of the rental, be or be with someone who is familiar with the operation of similar firearms and 21 years of age or older.

We also offer classes on a group or individual basis, specialized group instruction and a course specifically geared towards the State of Virginia Concealed Firearm Permit. Our NRA certified instructors have instructed scout groups working on their merit badge, novice shooters wanting to perfect their shooting skills, experienced shooters looking to polish up old skills, mystery writers wanting to know how a firearm works and inexperienced shooters wanting to become proficient with their firearm.
