Perhaps the heavy rains which swept through the Hampton Roads area during the week of 7-12 September causing heavy floods caused many folks to not venture out to the Airfield Shooting Club for the month match. Going from “feast to famine” we had a drop in September participants, but six folks came out to shoot.  A total of $35.00 was raised this month.

You could not ask for a more perfect summer day—temperature just right, bright and sunny, with the range pretty much dried for the rain the day before. The 14 June Service Rifle Match had a record breaking crowd, actually having to run three relays of shooters. All in all, a total of ten participants showed up to shoot a wide range of vintage and modern military sporting rifles. There were several “guests” of ASC members who were on hand to participate and observe the match. We also had some new ASC members participating.

May 2014 Service Rifle Match Results

The day was warm and just a bit humid, but the sun was shining and the breeze wasn't too strong.  Pretty good conditions for a service rifle match.  Six shooters (all ASC members) came out to have fun exercising some nice old rifles.  Notice how many M1903A3s were used.  One might ask what happened to the Garands?  Chances are that they're just taking a break and will be back again in force next month.

It was a beautiful April day with a slight breeze on the range to come and hear the big-bore military rifles roar. This month only had three shooters showing up...perhaps because of Spring Break going on. With the weather warming up, plan on coming out and shooting a round or two to knock the winter dust off of those carbines and rifles.
