Welcome to the AFC-IWLA Sills Air Range

Welcome to the Sills Air Range. We are a 26 lane airgun range at the Arlington-Fairfax Chapter of the Izaak Walton League of America facility in Centreville, Virginia. In 2015, the range went through a large renovation to go from a seven-lane facility to a new professional level twenty-five range facility. In 2017, in partnership with the Virginia Department of Game & Inland Fisheries (DGIF),  we added Megalink electronic targets. Also in 2017, we became a USA Shooting Certified Training Center (CTC).

The air range is used by chapter members, junior athletes, local high school teams and area club teams to practice and compete in the sports of air rifle and air pistol. Coaching and equipment are provided for those interested in trying the shooting sports. Please take a look around our website to learn more about what we offer.
