Myrtle Grove Questions

Hello all. I have a buddy visiting from PA over Memorial Day weekend, and we'd like to do some shooting. I'm new(ish) to the area and haven't been to Myrtle Grove yet, so I'm looking for the inside scoop.

I assume it's going to be crowded on weekends. Will it be so crowded it's not worth an attempt?

He's got some firearms that are banned here. All purchased pre-2013 (I think) so can he bring them down, or is he risking trouble?

With that being said, if he's able to bring them down (legally) are the patrons/staff there going to make a stink about it? I don't want either of us to face any negative attention. Just looking for a good time.

Lastly, if there's anywhere (public) that's a better option I'm all ears. Thanks.

If it's a weekend I suggest you get there 15-20 minutes before it opens. You might get lucky but every time I went on a weekend I had to end up waiting in line anyway with only an hour to shoot.

If they were purchased before Oct 1, 2013 they should be fine.

There's no staff there, but there is a "range officer" that comes down every now and then to check if everyone's safe. Most people police themselves quite well, although there are bad eggs. Just be aware of those around you.

Holiday weekend will probably be busy, grandson and I went yesterday (Friday) morning and there was only 1 other person there. When we left 2 others had showed up. Heat was terrible, plan ahead, plenty of water and even a large umbrella will help.

It's sporadic, you could get there and not wait or you could get there and wait an hour.
The rule is if someone has been there longer than an hour they need to get up and allow the next people to have a change.

Anything pre 13 is good to go.
However I've been there a dozen times and no one has ever questioned me, only the occasional that's such a cool gun etc it's friendly.

And in southern MD that's your best bet, unless y'all take a trip up to del marva which is beautiful!

Thanks all. We'll probably try to get there right before it opens one of the days.

Where is the Delmarva range(s) mentioned? Neither of us will be opposed to a drive if it means more time on the range..

Bumping because I have a follow-on question:

Do I need to take my own target stands to MG range?

Thanks again.

delmarva is a huge outdoor range and i believe it goes out to 300-400 yds with steel targets I went out there once and has a blast.
