September 18, 1958 – February 6, 2021

Richard Venola, Member #1071, was a Mustang officer in the U.S. Marine Corps, a veteran of the Gulf War, a graduate of the French Foreign Legion’s Jungle Commando Course and an avid firearms instructor and enthusiast. He served as the 12th editor of the popular magazine Guns & Ammo where he was remembered as being “one of the more colorful G&A helmsters, he possessed an encyclopedic knowledge of all things related to firearms. His vision of the magazine was that it should be fun as well as informative.” I believe that spirit is alive and well at our Club, where we too strive to entertain, educate, and to relentlessly seek out and experience all the adventure this world has to offer.
