The program has certified instructors that have collectively, over a century of shooting and 4-H experience.
Range and Facilities
Our club features 50 foot, 50 yard and 100 meter ranges, with covered firing points. We also have a full skeet and trap ranges. Our skeet and trap ranges feature an automated target counting system with electronic release. There is a small Archery field and we have full heated and air-conditioned rest rooms for our gentlemen and lady members.
We share the range facility with the Airfield 4H center. The Center’s primary use of the facility is for 4H summer camp, district 4H shooting competitions and instructor education. Our regular hours are sunrise to sunset six days a week. (We are also open all day on Sundays, but try to be good neighbors by limiting noise between sunrise and noon.)
We schedule friendly competitions on the range including our very popular Bowling Pin matches.
We also have Service Rifle matches (CMP like) and Defensive Pistol matches (IDPA like),
See our Club Programs section of the site for details on these matches, which are open to the public.
Other than these matches, the range is only open to members and their escorted guests only.
If you are familiar Wakefield, we are located at the 4-H Center. From the town of Wakefield, VA on Route 460, you would turn on route 628 (West Main Street in Wakefield) leading to Courtland, VA. It is the only traffic light in Wakefield and there is a 7-11 on the corner. Drive 4.7 miles on Route 628. Turn right onto Turkey Pen Road and go 3/4 of a mile. The first left is the entrance to the 4-H Center. Then take the first left onto the dirt road, and follow to the range. The range is locked unless members come to shoot.
