“No New Members on 21 July 2012”
Gunsite Rangemaster Charlie McNeese explains key shooting fundamentals–Sight alignment and sight picture.
Gil Ash of OSP Shooting Schools shares the secret to getting a hard focus on the bird faster and more clearly with this valuable tip about how the eyes work.
Ryan Cleckner shares his process for sighting in a scoped rifle. Including bore-sighting, a short 25-yard shot, shooting groups and making adjustments at 100 yards, slipping the scales and finding mechanical zero.
As ASC’s Chief Instructor I like to keep track of who, among our members, is a certified instructor. The last time I asked was several years ago so I’d like to get an update. If you hold instructor certifications through NRA, 4-H, Virginia Hunter Education, or other certifying authority, please drop me an e-mail listing your current qualifications. Instructor@airfieldshootingclub.org
If you’re interested in becoming certified as an instructor there may be a number of opportunities during the next year. Please let me know what you’re interested in and we’ll talk about potential opportunities.
