    Groan. I have two that are state-of-the-art. As a "preacher" people get in my car and are aghast that I would be trying to cheat the authorities. It has nothing to do with cheating and everything to do with a cold slap up side of the head to remind me to do the speed limit. I drive a lot in my work and can go into lala land with my thoughts.

    Thanks to ALL for the help and input. 14 years ago when we landed in Tucson I thought I moved to Mars. Now I feel like I'm moving to Mayberry, RFD. We have a rental (we always rent the first year) in some place called, "Massanutten". Rented it sight unseen. It's halfway up a mountain and about fifteen minutes or less from the Appalachian Trail. Time to get the rust out of my legs and find that titanium 44 mag that I practically gave away!

    And the cops in VA do not take too kindly to those going more than 9 over.

    I think the phrase is "9 you're fine, 10 you're mine."

    Dude, I lived in the mountains of VA for the last 14 years and just moved to the Gulf Coast of Florida 6 months ago. I miss it up there terribly!!! But I'm enjoying the very different things Florida has to offer too. Virginia is a great state to live in for many reasons, being gun friendly is just one of them.

    Massuntten is most known for being a ski resort, but I think you'll find the Shenandoah Valley one of the most beautiful places on earth.

    Good luck and welcome.

    Top Gun is the closest indoor range in the burg. Handguns and .22 rifles only.

    Flying Rabbit is an excellent public trap and sporting clays facility just south of town. Heck, the rabbit and Top Gun are only about a half mile from each other.

    About 30 minutes south are a couple of great private clubs, the Stonewall Rifle and Pistol Club, and their sister club Shenandale which is in Buffalo Gap.

    The VDGIF has several outdoor ranges within an hours drive of town.

    Over in Charlottesville is a great private club called Rivanna Rifle and Pistol club.

    There are another half dozen small clubs within about an hours drive too.

    You will be just up the road a piece from me. Howdy neighbor!!!

    I live about half way between Massanutten and Harrisonburg. If you find that titanium .44 mag and need a place to shoot it, you are welcome to stop in try out my shooting range (dirt pile) in the back yard.

    And others:

    See comment at #11

    That law only applies to the Cities of Alexandria, Chesapeake, Fairfax, Falls Church, Newport News, Norfolk, Richmond, or Virginia Beach or in the Counties of Arlington, Fairfax, Henrico, Loudoun, or Prince William -- A.K.A NOVA & part of Tide-water not the valley.

    Also note ownership of such mags and even having them in a firearm in your home is also OK in even those local municipalities. They are only prohibited in "public places" -- I.e., "...on any public street, road, alley, sidewalk, public right-of-way, or in any public park or any other place of whatever nature that is open to the public...."

    aznova,

    Be sure to check us out Virginia Citizens Defense League, Inc. (VCDL) You do not need to join to sign-up for the Alerts. We don't give or sell the mailing list, so getting the Alerts is a good way to check us out.

    Also, pick up a Where-not-to-carry card or print one off at: http://www.vcdl.org/pdf/VCDL_Carry_Card.pdf

    Hope to see you in Richmond at Lobby day.

    I used to party at JMU all the time. Not a lot of Mennonites around those parts. It was wild - trust me.

    For years (about 50), I maintained the AT intermittently (e.g., broken up by USMC, TDY in my "civilian" job, etc).

    Also, was part of the Massarock Crew that built the "Massanutten Trail" -- a 71-mile loop trail PATC -- Massanutten Ring Trails
    Spent at least a week-a-year on that sucker, for a number of years.

    If you really get the Rust out check out the MMT 100, for next year Massanutten Mountain Trails 100 Mile Run -- Home Page

    Every June there was a Woodstock Vintage Festival that was fun. Ditto, the Edinburg 'Ole Time Festival in September. For years there was a CCC reunion (same weekend as one of these two, but dang I I remember which -- check wit the local USFS office).
    The CCC reunion was connected with the first CCC camp in the country that opened on the George Washington National Forest. This was Camp F-1, Camp Roosevelt, situated 9 miles east of Edinburg, VA.

    Fond memories.
