Thanks again.
I've contacted several clubs/ranges & some require references from existing members.
How is this dealt with for people coming from far a way who are new to the area?

A lot of times you meet people at church fundraisers, the VFD, school/athletic functions etc.
Ruritan, Lyons clubs, VFW dinners sportsman's banquets etc. 4-H.

Most people are skeptical of persons coming from outside of the area until they get to know them some. Once you do, you'll find a place.
It's just like anywhere else.

I moved to Talbot in 2004 and really like the slower pace of life (and less traffic) compared to Northern Virginia. While you may have to travel 45-50 minutes to reach Delmarva Sporting Clays, you can also set up your own private range if you have suitable property outside of the incorporated towns.

Don't expect too many big city facilities. Easton is the main economic hub and has a Lowes, Target, Walmart, ACME, Giant and Harris Teeter. The smaller towns have varying shopping facilities anywhere from something to nothing. St Michaels is crazy with tourists in the summer and Oxford is the polar opposite... more of a retirement town. Everyone knows everybody else' business and may "know" more about you than you do!

Crime is generally pretty low and there is sufficient presence of town police, sheriff deputies and MSP to keep things on an even keel. Fire Departments are all volunteer. Paramedics are paid/career (Talbot DES), supplemented with volunteer crews from some of the fire departments.

Marshyhope Rod & Gun Club
Just east of the megatropolis of Federalsburg . It is a small club on 7 acres but we have a 300 yard range. Meetings are the first Wednesday of the month starting at 7:00pm. Attending some meetings and some of the shoots that are open to the public will get you a sponsor I'm sure.

Thanks.
I found their page on F/B, complete with this little billy doo.
Quote:
To comply with Governor Hogan's restrictions on social gatherings, club meetings and events are cancelled. The range itself is open for use by members.

1) Groups of 10 or less
2) Wash your hands often
3) Stay home if you are sick
We're still (literally) digging out of the disaster that was our move, but will get back to living "normally" soon & will look into the tips later.

Easton was once the 8th best small town in America! I graduated from EHS and SU. I want to move back to the shore really badly, but my career field makes it tough. Waterfowl is fun but not super amazing. I'm surprised the gun show was this weekend instead of next, they usually coincide. BTW the gun show is OK couldn't stop this year on my way back across the bridge. We got 3 blinds brushed and built and 3 deer stands up so it was a productive day at least.

Not bad, about 35 miles away by road.
I missed the gun show, as we're still digging out & SWMBO insists no play till we find everything so she can sue the movers!
