ASC Webmaster Position Available

ASC Members, 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. Jon webmaster@airfieldshootingclub.org

There are still a few slots open.  For questions or more information, reach out to Jesse Espe at jesse.espe@gmail.com.

ASC Pistol Class October 30

On October 30, 2021, the Airfield Shooting Club (ASC) is hosting a Pistol Class including sec- tions 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 a certified 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 appropri- ate 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). …
