For nearly 40 years, the experts at Maryland Small Arms Range have helped to hone the aim of law-enforcement and security personnel as well as everyday citizens. After range outings, their clients can check out the showroom, where weapons experts advise on firearms, ammunition, and self-defense apparel.
In addition to its range, the firearm emporium invites guests to square off against zombies and complete more than 300 other scenarios in its 3D simulators. Classes cover practical topics such as shotgun home defense, basic pistol use, and safety recommendations. Guests can also partake in self-defense and martial-arts training, including sessions that cater exclusively to women.
In addition to keeping guests safe by maintaining range rules, the staff also leads classes—including the NRA First Steps Pistol Orientation and Handgun Qualification License Course—teaching students firearm basics such as how to aim or clean a handgun. The range also connects to a pro shop, where a gunsmith repairs and customizes arms.
Each morning, as the sun stretches skyward and begins to reflect on Chesapeake Bay, crews from the Chesapeake Bay Tours prep their vessels for another day of trips around one of America's most famous bodies of water. During their scenic outings, these seasoned captains lead groups past famous landmarks including Annapolis Harbor, the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, and picturesquely historic lighthouses. In addition to tour and cruises, guests can also book vessels for parties, adding some nautical flavor to birthdays, anniversaries, or celebrations of a new high score in Burger Time.
