Due to family and work commitments, after quite some time serving as the club’s webmaster I’ve decided it’s time to step down from the position. I’ve been passively looking for a member that has interest for some time, but it’s time to ramp up efforts to find a quality replacement. I’ll continue serving until we can find a replacement in a limited capacity.
If you are interested in becoming a member of the ASC board, maintaining our website and email automation system, and helping out with other technology related needs for the club this might just be the position for you. The website runs on WordPress, and is minimally customized so there shouldn’t be a huge learning curve for anyone who has WordPress experience.
If you are interested in the position and want to learn more, please send me an email.
Do you have a shotgun that you haven’t shot or haven’t shot in some time? Now is the time! Dale Mullin, who is a very experienced shotgun instructor and a Level II shotgun coach, will be there to help you learn to hit flying targets.
Dale will help you with the fundamentals – stance, pointing etc to hit incoming, out-going and slight crossing targets.
Please bring your shotgun and 2 boxes (50 shells) of ammunition. The ammunition should contain any of the following shot sizes 7-1/2, 8, or 9 size shot. Boxes labeled for target shooting or “Dove or Quail” will be OK. If you have a choice, look for velocities between 1100 and 1200 feet per second. No need for any higher velocities.
If you do not have a shotgun but you have been craving the opportunity to see what it was about, Dale will being some club 20 gauge shotguns. You still need to bring 2 boxes of 20 gauge shotgun shells of 7-1/2, 8, or 9 shot size.
Please drop Dale an e-mail to let him know you’re coming so that he can plan how many clay targets we will need. Dale.firstname.lastname@example.org
If there is enough turn out/interest we can offer advance shooting tips on trap and skeet!
We look forward to seeing you there!!!!
We are in the process of installing a cell phone repeater to provide emergency cell phone service to rifle/handgun range area. We need one volunteer who is comfortable, and capable of, working in tight spaces. The work involves entering the restroom building attic to install the electronics and an interior antenna and also running a cable to the far end of the building. (The air handler and ducting are up there making things a little tight.) Work will start at 10:00 Saturday morning and we should be done within 2 hours.
If you are interested, please send me your name and phone number in an email at XO@airfieldshootingclub.org.

As I rode back home yesterday after the last match of the season, in my mind I had prepared a long, poetic reminiscence of another season of bowling pin shooting. However, it is going to be another beautiful day and the car is loaded for a trip to the sporting clays range. I’d love to stay and chat, but daylight is burning, so here are your scores and I will see you in April, or around the range before. Practice up, because I will be! Here are your results.

Well Gentle Shooters,
We are approaching the end of another season of Bowling Pins. As many of our experienced shooters know, the coating on the pins does not hold up in the cold winter months. So this Saturday, December 4th will be our last match until April. We will begin at 9:30 at the stunning Airfield Shooting Club range in idyllic Wakefield. Directions to the range and rules for the match are available at our web site www.airfieldshootingclub.org and individual questions can be addressed to the pinhead at firstname.lastname@example.org.
See you Saturday,
On December 4, 2021, the Airfield Shooting Club (ASC) is hosting a Pistol Class including sections on the Law of Concealed Carry and Self Defense and Methods of Concealed Carry. The ASC Pistol Class is intended to provide hands-on orientation to the safe handling of handguns and includes both classroom and live-fire training. Our instructors teach both revolver and semi-auto sections in this class. In addition to the ASC Pistol Class, over an hour long session is scheduled with Timothy W. Drewry, a Virginia licensed attorney, who will discuss some of the legal aspects of carrying concealed firearms and self defense in Virginia. The attorney is acertified pistol instructor too and usually remains with the class until the very end so that he may answer questions which may arise. An additional segment of the course will include a brief discussion of some of the firearms appropriate for concealed carry and the holsters or other devices which might be suited for carrying a firearm concealed. Please note that the ASC Pistol Class, including the legal and concealed carry sections, is a non-NRA course, but it satisfies the handgun competency requirements set forth in Virginia Code § 18.2-308.02 (B).
This course is conducted by state certified or NRA certified firearms instructors. Those who successfully complete the ASC Pistol Class will receive a certificate which will serve as proof of training for the purpose of obtaining a Virginia Concealed Handgun Permit.
The course is scheduled to commence at 9:00 a.m. in the Spain Conference Building located at the Airfield 4-H Conference Center (near Wakefield). We expect the formal portion of the course will be completed by about 4:00 p.m., however several of the instructors usually remain at the range to help those who want to get some additional practice with their handguns. It is not necessary that you own a firearm in order to attend these courses. The instructors will bring some of their personal firearms, which you may borrow. If you have your own firearm, you may bring it to the range for live fire practice, but please do not bring a loaded firearm to the classroom portion in the morning. We will do our first work with loaded firearms in the early afternoon.
Cost of the class is $65.00 per participant (nonrefundable unless directed by ASC Board). Must be 18+ years old to attend and have no legal prohibitions to possess a firearm. Payment should be made to the “Airfield Shooting Club” and sent attention to Timothy W. Drewry at P.O. Box 523, Wakefield, Virginia 23888. If mailing, include name(s) of participant(s) and the following for each: phone #; address; and email address. You can also pay online at the following: https://airfieldshootingclub.org/make-payment/ . When paying online, choose “ASC Payment Portal.” Fill in the online payment form including your name, address, phone #, and email. Choose “Class fee” as reason for paying. If you are an ASC member, insert your number, otherwise you may use “000.” Also when paying online, send an email to Tim Drewry at his email address below and give him name(s) of participant(s) and the following for each: phone #; address; and email address. Failure to fully identify participants may prevent them from participating in course. The course fee includes all class materials, some .22 caliber ammunition and the attorney’s fees, but does not include the cost of any centerfire ammunition. You may bring your own centerfire ammunition to use in your own firearm or an instructor’s firearm. Note: This course has limited space; the course is filled as payments are received. It is best to contact Tim Drewry to verify space is still available before making payment !!!!
If you have any questions, please contact Tim Drewry by email at email@example.com . If you already have a concealed carry permit, this is a great refresher course, especially if the first course you took to acquire your permit did not have a lecture on the laws in Virginia. If you have family, friends and neighbors who wish to acquire a concealed carry permit, then this course will fully prepare them!!! We hope you will register for this class and join us on Dec. 4th !!!
Thanks to the hard-working crew of 19 members who showed up and worked hard to get the range cleaned up and the new backers ready for use. A special thanks to Jim Manning for buying the crew lunch. Check out their work next time you visit the range.
