    Pretty sure there are no places. Putting the feelers out to rent a range for a pistol class, maybe 15-20 people. Preferably outdoor.
    I'm going to call around, but if anyone knows for sure places that do or don't that would be great.
    Just doing a little initial leg work.

    SLCFSA lets LEO use the range complex from time to time for training. It's a members club but I'm sure the LEO don't join. Bit of a drive to Lancaster but it's a really nice outdoor facility.

    That's the thing. How many Marylanders are driving there? Not many.

    Thurmont might be possible, but you'd need a member to make it happen. They have had classes in the past. I took a couple classes from Pat Goodale there, long ago, as well as a couple IDPA clinics.

    Here's the issue. The guys would be coming from Virginia Beach. They aren't flying into BWI, renting vehicles. and going to Thurmont. And surely not driving 6 hours from VB. Pretty sure I can't get 10 guys here to pay $1,500 each for a class. Or 20 at $650 LOL

    Delmarva is like 3 hours. Think I'll just see if we can rent one of the pistol ranges, call the guys, and take it from there. This is a terrible idea. :)

    Rivanna in Charlottesville will host classes if they are open to members as well.

    Obviously not in MD though, but only a couple of hours from VB and MD so kinda midway.

    Even though I’m in the Tidewater now, I’m still a member at Rivanna so I can make the request if you think it could be a fit.

    4.5 hours from VaB to Thurmont aka Fredneckistan. It's not bad at all, except that hell-hole section of 95.

    Delmarva would be an easier drive for them, but longer for most Md'ers.

    It's indoors, not the nicest area, and far from desirable...but have you considered MD Small Arms? I'd think they'd allow something like this on a weekday, but not sure. It would certainly be more centrally located, if nothing else.

    I secured a place. Might be awhile for details.
