Sorry folks, but this is a report about a range, not a firearm. Work was rained out today, so my plan was to drive to Norfolk, VA and check on some gel-coat work on my friend's boat, then stop by at the range where I am a member to bust some caps on the way home. When I found the street the boat shop is on, I noticed a firing range which I'd never heard of. Met with the guy doing the repairs to the boat, and then went to the mystery Boom Room.
The first thing I noticed was that there weren't people standing in line waiting for a lane. In fact, there was no one there but me and the proprietor. I introduced myself, told him I'd had no idea the place was there, and told him what I wanted to do. I had to surrender my holster (Understandable), sign a waiver, read the range rules, and then got a guided tour of the place. Spacious, clean, with 12 ea. 50' lanes. Lighting is great, sound-damping is greater, and everything worked. Prices are reasonable. Range fee, 2 boxes of PMC 9mm and two targets came to about $46.00. It's close to major thoroughfares and lots of other attractions.
If you're heading to Norfolk for anything, check this place out.
