Dear Members, As fellow shooters we recognize the enjoyment of shooting and the hardship that closing the range causes for our members. However, the COVID-19 virus has proven to be deadly and at this time there is still much which we do not know about it. Medical professionals have made it clear that they and their facilities will be quickly overwhelmed if we are not able to slow the spread of the virus. We have already had at least one situation where club members may have been exposed to the virus. Both are presently nearing the end of their 14 day post-exposure quarantine period and at present it appears that they were not infected. However, we cannot always count on such good fortune. It appears that the virus can remain viable for relatively long periods of time on objects which we might come into contact with during routine use of the range. Many of our members are in the high-risk category. Even members who are not in the high-risk category may have family members who may be at higher risk. At this point we are hearing reports of people dying from the virus who were reported to be healthy and …
ASC Members, The ASC board made the difficult decision to close the range for access,and shooting by all members effective tonight 03/27/2020 when we will change the combinations to prevent access. The ASC board is carefully reviewing the overall situation with COVID-19 and will continue to assess the appropriateness of opening the range for use. The safety of our members, lack of services to maintain the restroom facilities, and overall COVID-19 situation contributed to our decision making.I will send a notice to the club should the situation change. Please keep an eye on the website, your email and the range calendar for up to date information. The ASC board did not make this decision lightly, and feel at this time it’s the right choice. Members that access the range after it’s locked, and receiving this notice will be considered in violation of the closure and will face disciplinary action up to and including removal from the club. If you have questions about this decision you can email firstname.lastname@example.org, or the board at email@example.com.
Good Evening, Sorry for the short notice but we holding another Shooter Tune up this Saturday at 10 am. This one will be focused on Rifle! Our own Fletcher Dunton will be hosting this event on the 50 yd range. Depending on the need of the participants he will be going over two distinct marksmanship skills: 1. Basic Rifle Sight-In: This will include checking and adjusting the scope eye relief, parallax, level, mounts and bore for correctness, and basic bore sight before sending lead down range. Then correct sight in procedure will be covered. Please bring your own rifle to practice on. 2. Precision Rifle Shot Fundamentals: This will include a review of the classic 5 shooting fundamentals. The focus will be to provide instructions and feedback to give each shooter solid techniques to walk away from the morning with tighter groups. We hope to see you there. For awareness, the Shooter Tune Ups will be schedule every time there is a 5th Saturday of the month. These are located on the calendar and will vary in the topic we are covering. See you on the firing line!
VCDL Lobby Day 2019 It’s that time of year again, Time to meet and speak with our Virginia Legislatures about issues and rights that face us. The ASC wants to encourage all of our members to attend the VCDL rally in Richmond on Monday, January 20, 2019 at 8 AM – 2 PM The Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL) is at the forefront of protecting your rights in Virginia and we encourage all of our members to support them as much as possible.
A CALL TO PENS! Fellow Members of ASC, as we are sure you are aware the last election did not go our way as gun owners. The newly elected officials for 2020 are already proposing draconian laws that in some cases will make most of us felons (Class 6 – minimum 5 year prison term) with the stroke of pen unless we turn in our firearms. The time to act was during the election, but now it is imperative that we rise up and make our voices heard and pray that it is not too late. Many of the cities that our members live in are having 2A Sanctuary City votes and discussions. At this point the resolution may mean little legally, however it does send a message to Richmond that we the people are not going to stand for our rights to be infringed. Time is of the essence. There are already 20 cities/counties that have passed 2A Sanctuary Resolutions, but we have a long way to go. If your city/county has not yet had a 2A Sanctuary City Resolution vote we would like to encourage you to contact your city or county representatives and let them know your …

ASC Members, One of the goals of ASC is to work to preserve our rights and educate others concerning the shooting sports. The Virginia Citizen’s Defense League provides outreach, support, and helps to ensure our firearms rights are preserved. About twice a year we feel it’s appropriate to send an email letting our members know about VCDL and include pertinent information about elections or other key gun rights issues. This year may bet the most important one yet to stay informed. Below you will find two links to the VCDL for your reference.
