Airfield Shooting Club Membership Information

The Airfield Mission - Airfield Shooting Club is a community service oriented club that promotes safety and shooting education. We seek members that want to be a part of that community and to play an active part in promoting safety and shooting education.

What are the membership requirements?

  • You must be able to legally own a firearm in the State of Virginia or near by State. (You must provide proof of a current background check.)
    This can be proven by a valid Concealed Handgun Permit, a receipt for a recent (within one year) firearms purchase from a licensed dealer that performed a background check, a current Federal Firearms License, or law enforcement credentials.

  • Provide proof of ID.. We must see who you are.. This can be done with a State drivers license, Military ID or Law-enforcement ID.

  • Be a member of the NRA.. As a current NRA Gold Medal Club, all our members must be NRA members.
    We will need to see your current NRA membership card or label from your monthly magazine.
    If you are not currently a member of the NRA, we can sign you up at a discount through the club.

  • Additionally, you must commit to contributing at least six hours of public service to the club per year.
    Public service includes assisting with ASC- sponsored shooting events, volunteering with the ASC youth programs, serving on a Friends of NRA committe, working the club's table at local gunshows, performing range improvements or maintenance, and other activities that may be approved by the Board of Directors.
    Members who are not able to meet these public service requirements may instead contribute to the club at the rate of $10 per hour of public service not served.

What are the range operating hours? -  Club members are given the combination to the range's gate lock, and may generally use the range at any time during daylight hours.  We do share the range with the 4-H Center, and the range may be reserved for their exclusive use from time to time.  This typically happens during weekday mornings in the Summer months, and infrequently on Saturdays or Sundays throughout the year.  Range closings are posted well in advance on the calendar.

Are there any other benefits to being a member? Yes! Among other things, the Airfield Shooting Club is affiliated with the CMP. This allows our members to purchase surplus rifles and ammunition through the Civilian Marksmanship Program.
