URGENT – SRB Closed until further Notice

After careful consideration, the board has decided to close the Short Range Berm (SRB) until further notice due to safety concerns.  The wear and tear on the berm has finally exceed the allowable safety margins and we must close it until repairs can be made.  The board is currently looking to repair the berm while performing some improvements.  The board was working on some solutions, but this has accelerated the effort significantly.

The intent is to reach out to some contractors on Monday, while we draft up specifications for our needed scope of work.  The intent is to meet with folks in the beginning of Dec some time to walk through the modifications desired to establish quotes.  After that we are at the mercy of the contractor’s schedule once we select them.

We apologize for the inconvenience, but it is in all of our interest to stay safe and be a responsible gun range.

SAVE THE DATE – Handgun Combatives Course!!!

Save the date! Sept 23/24,  2023

ASC is hosting David Jenkins, founder of Rochester Personal Defense to put on Dave Spaulding’s Handgun Combatives Class.  Dave Spaulding retired and has only certified a few folks to continue teaching his course and Dave Jenkins is one of them.  I have known Dave Jenkins for several years and taken instructor classes with him as well as taken classes from him and can recommend Dave completely.

This class is something you won’t want to miss.  This is why I am telling you to mark your calendars now.  The final price is being worked out, but it will be around $500 per person.  Details will follow shortly.

If interested please contact Scott Sampson at instructor@airfieldshootingclub.org.

Here is the class description:

This course takes the handgun from a sporting, plinking, or recreational implement, to a tool of combat- to be ready and willing to fight if avoidance and evasion fail. The purpose of this course is to build solid essential skills (grip, trigger control, body position, holster skills, reloads, malfunction clearances, etc.) and put them in the fight! Students will be trained to anchor and improve these essential skills under set time frames established in six (6) standards that will be shot during the course combining speed and combat accuracy.

This is not a course for the brand new shooter. You must have a good foundation of skills (grip, stance, sighting, trigger operation) and a desire to become more efficient.

This course will show you how to effectively use your handgun for real-world combat in a life-or-death situation. This includes:

  • Fundamentals: grip, trigger control, sight alignment/picture, body position, etc.
  • Ready positions and their use
  • Holster skills
  • Reloading
  • Malfunction clearances

What you will need:

  • A quality defensive handgun (a spare is not a bad idea)
  • A quality duty or concealment holster
  • Three magazines (minimum) with pouches or two speed-loaders (revolver use) with pouches. More magazines if you have a gun that holds less than 10rds (5 mags)
  • Belt designed to support gear
  • 800 rounds minimum
  • Eye and ear protection
  • Billed cap
  • Clothing for weather conditions
  • Water for hydration
  • A folding or camp chair is recommended
  • A concealing garment
  • Good footwear
