I live in Mineral VA between Richmond and Charlottesville. I'm looking for a relatively close place to shoot (30 min) I found Cavalier Rifle and Pistol Club http://www.cavrpc.org/. Anybody been there? Also since I am new to shooting I don't know if I'm ready to make a fool of myself at a gun club yet. Does anyone know of any type of public lands besides Wildlife Management Areas where I can just bring my own skeet thrower and shoot some rounds.
Thanks,

Cavalier is a great club. You'll never feel like a fool out there. Mainly because no one is ever out there, at least not in the clays field that I've shot.

Problem with Cavalier is that you need to be a member, and last time I checked it was a couple years waiting list.

If you can find their web site, find Henry Baskerville's name and number and give him a holler. Excellent old Va. gentleman who will talk your ear off, but he can give you the lowdown on membership. Also, if you are inclined, he is one of the best shotgunning coaches I have ever met in my life. The guy can shoot.

Other places for clays, from Mineral, you really need to go to Old Forge in New Kent County, Flying Rabbit in Harrisonburg, or Quail Ridge in Lexington. I am sure there are others, but those are the ones I've shot.

As for freebie places you can take your Trius, you just need to meet some farmers. There are plenty of people in Mineral with enough land that you should be able to find someone willing to let you throw on their property. Beautiful part of the state, and lots of open land.

Good luck.

streetwalkerd, are you a member or did you just go with a member to shoot there. That stinks because there is no where else very close to me. I'll have to check out the other two you recommended but they are a little far to go to on a regular basis. Where do you usually go in C'Ville? I am only about 40 minutes away from C'Ville.

Are there any Cavalier members out there on this forum???
Thanks,

One place to try in charlottesvile is Rivana Rifle and Pistol Club. Exit 120 off of I64 turn left (if you were travaling west) then about 4 miles. We have Trap and Skeet open to public on Sunday 13:30 to 17:00 except 2nd Sunday when 5 Stand replaces Trap. Our web sit is RRPC.ORG Most members are helpfull to new people.
