Indoor Shooting Facility Proposal in Loudoun County

On Monday, June 9, the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors will likely consider a proposal to allow for construction of a new indoor shooting facility to be located in Ashburn. The Beaumeade Gun Club is requesting that a special exception be approved to allow the indoor firearm facility. The location of the proposed shooting facility appears to be ideally suited for such an operation which is a much-needed resource for the area’s law-abiding firearm owners. The planning commission has recommended approval of the facility.

It is widely recognized that increased development in Loudoun County has greatly diminished opportunities for law-abiding firearm owners to develop and improve their firearms proficiency.

Please contact both your Supervisor, and Board Chairman Scott York, and strongly encourage them to grant Beaumeade Gun Club’s special use exemption and allow for this important project to move forward! You can contact the Board Members at (703) 777-0204 or by email which is listed below.

Update:
By a vote of 8-0-1, the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors voted to advance a special use exemption for the Beaumeade Gun Club that will allow for the construction of an indoor shooting facility in Ashburn. The measure will be considered for final approval at the Board's next regularly scheduled meeting in July. Please contact your Supervisor, as well as Board Chairman Scott York, and thank them for their support of this project, and strongly encourage them to give their final approval next month!
