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.

Accidents or attacks can happen at anytime. We do our best to be safe, but to quote Forest Gump “Stuff Happens” and we need to be prepared. We have an extraordinary opportunity for our club to help its members be prepared. The club has purchased and installed an AED and emergency tramua kits at the club. But do you know how to use them? If not, this is the class for you! We have coordinated a trauma medical class for you!

The Airfield Shooting Club will host its monthly bowling pin match this Saturday, September 3rd at 9:30 AM at the inspiring ASC Shooting Club range in idyllic Wakefield.

Warm and Gentle Shooters, It definitely was the Fourth of July weekend at the range and shall we say the temperature didn’t disappoint. Regardless, out intrepid shooters fired 235 strings today with a large number of five gun competitors. I would be remiss if I didn’t offer a shout out to one of our original match directors, Cort Tompkins, who dropped by today to shoot the match. We have five Saturday’s in July, meaning you have an extra week to practice (or get enough gunpowder into your new .38 Special load to actually move your pin off the table) before our next match on August 6th. Until then, celebrate or weep over this month’s results posted below for your viewing pleasure.

Gentle Shooters, We are having a Bowling Pin Match Saturday July 2nd at 9:30 AM at the pastoral Airfield Shooting Club range in stunning Wakefield Virginia because America. I can’t think of a better way to fire up the Fourth of July weekend that with your favorite guns and your favorite friends. I know that I will be debuting a new optical sight and reload for my 38 revolver. Anyone who has attended a match where I am trying something new can attest to the entertainment value in my overwhelming frustration in the next installment of “what else can go wrong.” That alone is worth the cost of admission. Rules for the match and directions to the range are available on our web site at www.airfieldshootingclub.org. Specific questions and concerns along with the more general insults may be hurled at firstname.lastname@example.org. See you at the range Steven
