ARPC presents Beginner Level Practical Rifle and Pistol Event

Members,

Time for another beginner course that people have been asking about. It is essentially what we used to call the Carbine clinic. In order to get members safely introduced to practical and action shooting, we devised a course to address the shortfall of cost effective and available training to members. Practical shooting mindset is nothing new. If bench rest shooting isn’t your thing and you want to know how to move efficiently and be accurate with a firearm in a multitarget environment, you might consider this course.

Who: Any AGC badge holder that wants to learn practical rifle and pistol techniques. Beginner level folks only. There will be an advanced course in October.
When: Saturday 28 September 2019, 0800-1600hrs
Where: AGC action Bay 6
Cost: $100 per shooter payable the morning of the event

Email the ARPC XO email link on the club website if you are interested. There are only 10 seats. First come, first served. Please be considerate and only register if you can make it. I will have a wait list, as always, for last minute unavoidable cancellations.

I will email instructions explaining details directly to participants when they register.

Reminder: Arlington has a 100 yard Steel Plate Rifle Shoot on the Barnes Multi-purpose Range Saturday, August, 17, from 9:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.

Theft on AGC property

Members,

There was a car broken into Sunday 28 July at the 200yd range parking lot. That area is technically state property. The victim’s car had the drivers rear window broken. A bag with credit cards, money and I.D. were stolen. The phone was thrown by another car in the lot. The victim completed the target sprint with the ARPC juniors, returned some gear to her car only to return back to the 200 yd range for trophy presentations. About 30 minutes passed, she returned to her vehicle and found things stolen.

We ask that members be vigilant and keep things out of sight within their locked cars whenever possible no matter where parked on the property. Thieves ignore private property signs just as criminals ignore gun laws. This was an unfortunate event today. The police arrived 2 hours after being called. Not sure how the AGC plans to mitigate this through possible surveillance cameras, fences or what.
