I hope you all had a great time at The American Legion State Air Rifle Match at the Rivanna Rifle and Pistol Club. I know we enjoyed having you there. I find myself telling the American Legion about the professionalism and dedication of our air rifle community and yet again you have carried on that tradition. Thank You Claude Davenport Commander of Post 72 help with everything and Rivanna Rifle and Pistol Club for hosting.
In the future you will start to notice we are going to update how The American Legion handles the Air Rifle program, it is long overdue. We have launched the Facebook page to get information out faster and currently working on a YouTube channel for instructional videos. This I believe will allow us to reach more youth throughout the Commonwealth and build our reputation has the premiere Air Rifle location in the country.
