Why the 23" barrel length minimum? I understand stand not wanting sbs but why not 18.5?

You'll find most Trap, Skeet, & Clays ranges in this area have this policy.

They got tired of the tacticool guys showing up wanting to shoot slugs, buckshot, etc. Some of the guns didnít even have full stocks, just pistol grips. The rule at my club is 21Ē.

Itís just the wrong gun for the task at hand. Itís like taking a desert eagle to an IPSC/USPSA/IDPA match.

Haven't been there in a few years. It's a decent place and the wait isn't usually long. The staff outside is usually young guys who are pretty cool. No Nazi nuts searching for excuses to exert their impotence on you.
Inside the building actions have to be open. Cheaper to bring your own shells.
You can arrange for groups if you want to take the office for team building or whatever the PC term is these days.

I'd like to bring my 22" FN SLP, as some 3-gun stages require hitting clays and I can not reliably hit a moving clay with said shotgun. Bull Run has a 23" minimum barrel length, so I haven't been able to try with the FN or the 590a1. I really don't want to have to cross the river to use the FN, looks like I'll have to. I'm sure I'll get the side eye with the +4 extended tube on it

Just remember at PG - no field loads - no high brass. 2 3/4 dram equivalent, 7 1/2 or smaller. Shotguns in cases in the house is a no no.

All voice control on trap/skeet ranges. Wobble uses 5-stand positions, self pull on timer, or immediate with a friend.

Iíve been going there for 30 years and have never heard of this though itís not my home club. Then again I put my O/U together at the back of my SUV. Does this apply to breakdown cases? Or just long cases?

All cases!

Sign on entry to each of the two doors regarding firearms in cases.

Actually they are very anal about firearm in cases, which in my opinion is more secure.

BUT their range & rules.

Shows you how much I read. I agree, their range, their rules. Now that I think about it I remember the signs on the doors but probably stopped reading when it started talking about no cases because it never applied to me. I agree, it probably is safer without the cased guns in there. I shoot an 11 pound o/u with Skeet tubes in a Nasco case. I try not to carry it any more than I have to. Itís heavy. At my home club we have guys that bring their cases into the club house. Theyíre breakdown cases so Iím not concerned about the safety of it. We do have a rule about no dry firing or use of snap caps at our club. Which I agree with too. Iíve heard many stories of NDís using snap caps/dry firing guns in club houses. PG must be doing something right with all the new/casual shooters that come through there with nothing major happening. Thanks again for the info.
