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.

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 !!!
