Range Road Closed-Volunteers Needed!

Attention ASC Members:

Due to the effects of Hurricane Michael, the range road is not safe for travel, especially cars and low to the ground vehicles.  The Director of the 4-H Center, Mel Atkinson, has asked for volunteers to help with emergency repairs on the road.  If you want to fulfill some ASC service hours, please contact Mel at 757-899-4901 or via email at mel88@vt.edu .

Also, Mel could use volunteers to help prepare for the Boo Grass Festival coming soon to the Center.  If you can help with the festival, please contact Mel.  ASC service hours will be awarded when you volunteer to assist the 4-H Center.

Thank you!

–Tim Drewry, ASC VP

ASC Defensive Pistol match training session

We do not have a sufficient number of shooters for a regular ASC Defensive Pistol match, and will hold a training session instead.

Stages..
We will set up stages or individual props to practice specific skills (such as shooting on the move, engaging moving targets, transitions, shooting from cover etc.) based on shooters’ interests.
We will time each other and use safety officers like in a regular match.

Fees..
We ask shooters to contribute a fee of $5 to offset costs for consumables and targets.

We encourage you to bring a pistol-caliber carbine if you own one which will give you the option for training some tactical carbine shooting.
No prior experience is required and is open to anyone that wants to participate.

Time..
Set-up will begin at 8:45 am. We will likely wrap up in the early afternoon, around 2 pm. You can join us any time.

Any queations or need more info please contact Jeff or Tanja at

New Rifle Match Opportunities

Expanding opportunities for high power sports—traditional service rifles, modern sporters and the coming zombie apocalypse

Starting in November 2014, highpower modern sporting rifle and service rifle participants will have two venues to shoot; Traditional Service Rifle (using CMP rules) or the new Zombie Rifle Match (see attached article).

The Airfield Shooting Club’s (ASC) primary mission is to “promote safety and shooting education” for members and non-member guests. Since taking the primary role of directing our monthly matches, a number of ASC members have talked to me and raised a number of issues that should be addressed or clarified. This article will highlight three main areas of concern that I have heard from participants in our “Service Rifle.” It is the intent that addressing these three main issues, it will allow ASC members to have greater knowledge, and feel more inclusive to our monthly event. The three main areas of concerns we will address: 1. Is “Service Rifle” just a Civilian Marksmanship Program event?; 2. What if I am not an owner of a CMP sanctioned rifle?, and finally, 3. What opportunities do I have if I am a high-power shooter wanting to shoot in a completive event, but not a CMP-like Service Rifle Match?
