The Airfield Mission - Airfield Shooting Club is a community service oriented club that promotes safety and shooting education. We seek members that want to be a part of that community and to play an active part in promoting safety and shooting education.
What are the membership requirements? - You must be able to legally own a firearm in the State of Virginia, as proven by a valid Concealed Handgun Permit, a receipt for a recent firearms purchase from a licensed dealer that performed a background check, a current Federal Firearms License, or law enforcement credentials. If none of these options are convenient for you we can, with your cooperation, conduct a Criminal History Record Check. Additionally, you must commit to contributing at least six hours pf public service to the club per year. Public service includes assisting with ASC- sponsored shooting events, volunteering with the ASC youth programs, serving on a Friends of NRA committe, working the club's table at local gunshows, performing range improvements or maintenance, and other activities that may be approved by the Board of Directors. Members who are not able to meet these public service requirements may instead contribute to the club at the rate of $10 per hour of public service not served.
How much does it cost to join? - Range dues are $75.00 per year. There is a one-time initiation fee of $50. Skeet targets are $2.50 per round of 25 for members and $3.50 per round for guests and non-members. You are also required to be a member of the National Rifle Association ($25/year). Note that if you submit your full dues in the middle of the year we will prorate your second year's dues.
How do I join? - Complete the membership application and follow the instructions. Please read the Bylaws and the Range Rules before filling out the application. You may also bring the application to the next Board meeting.

May I bring a guest? - Immediate family members (Spouse and minor children ) are encouraged to attend and may accompany the member. You may bring other guests. although no single guest may accompany you more than four times a year. Members are responsible for the actions of their guests. No more than six guests may accompany a member at any time and only three may handle a firearm at the same time.
Can I shoot in a match without joining? - Club matches are open to the public. Non-members pay a small surcharge over club members.
What are the range operating hours? - Club members are given the combination to the range's gate lock, and may generally use the range at any time during daylight hours. We do share the range with the 4-H Center, and the range may be reserved for their exclusive use from time to time. This typically happens during weekday mornings in the Summer months, and infrequently on Saturdays or Sundays throughout the year. Range closings are posted well in advance on the calendar.
Are there any other benefits to being a member? Yes! Among other things, the Airfield Shooting Club is affiliated with the CMP. This allows our members to purchase surplus rifles and ammunition through the Civilian Marksmanship Program.
