Bull Run is an amazing shooting center

Bull Run is an amazing shooting center. We are lucky to have a place like this in NOVA. The ranges are world-class and the trap operators are super cool and experienced. I shot firearms prior to coming here, but I never shot in a formal trap or skeet format before. The staff was helpful and just after a few weeks I shot my first 25. They rent shotguns and have training classes. Come here and have fun!

Great facilities for shooting

Great facilities for shooting trap, wobble, 5 stand, skeet and sporting clays. Prices are fair for both ammo and range time. Great for novice and experienced clay target shooters alike.
