Welcome to Arlington Rifle & Pistol Club!

Arlington Rifle & Pistol Club, Inc. was chartered by the NRA in 1943.  We are a charter member of the Associated Gun Clubs of Baltimore, Inc (AGC).  Arlington Rifle & Pistol Club is also affiliated with the Civilian Marksmanship Program. Cost for club membership is currently $40 per year.

Members of Arlington Rifle & Pistol Club who purchase AGC range badges are authorized to use all of the AGC Ranges and other facilities.   You can click here to learn more about the AGC Ranges.  The AGC Ranges are located at 11518 Marriottsville Road, Marriottsville, MD 21104

Club meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month, starting at 7:00 P.M. at the Marriottsville Trap Range.  

We encourage all of our members to get involved with club activities and we strive to provide activities that meet the diverse interests of our members.  Monthly club shoots and instructional programs are held on the first or second Saturday and the second or third Sunday of each month from 9:00 A.M. to 3:00 P.M. at the Marriottsville Range. Prospective members and guests are always welcome to attend our club-sponsored events.

We have a very active program for Junior shooters.  We shoot at the indoor air rifle range during the winter months and we use the Barnes range at Marriottsville for small bore shoots during the Spring, Summer, and Fall.

ARPC and Greenbelt 3 Gun Event, Saturday 14 April 0900 -1400 hrs


Arlington Rifle and Pistol Club and Greenbelt will be hosting a joint 3 Gun event on Saturday 14 April on the AGC 200 yd range from 0900 to 1400. This is a TWO stage event. We will commence the first stage at 0900 and once all have completed, we will reset for the second stage. Once both stages are completed, we will have some open shooting time. Be mindful that if you show up in the middle of the stage, you will be eyeballed by the other shooters and have to wait until the next stage or when all other shooters are done before you can join the event.


.223/ 5.56 only for rifle (no green tip or armor piercing)

9, 40, 45 for pistol (no magnum)

Bird only shot for shotgun


AR and AR type variants. No AR pistols or AK’s.

Semiauto pistols preferred

Shotgun of your choice as long as it operates safely and doesn’t jam more than it shoots. Maybe bring a shotgun that holds more than 3 shells so we don’t need to use a sun dial to time your stage instead of a shot timer.


Holster, mag holders, shell caddy, pistol belt, full coverage eye pro, ear pro, weather appropriate clothing, and at least two mags per gun. Work gloves are a good idea if you are handling lead infested steel. Folding chair unless you like sitting on the ground.

We will be at the club shed for load out at around 0800hrs and then setup on the 200 yd range. The general rule of thumb is either be early to help setup or stay late to breakdown. We get on and off the range faster with all of your help.

The safety brief is at 0900 and every shooter arriving will get a brief before they participate. The event starts as soon as everyone is briefed. No one shoots without a safety brief. This is formatted event with a 0900ish start time. So please be on time.

Shooter donation for the steel fund is $10. The most fun you can have for ten bucks with your clothes on. Sarcasm is provided free of charge.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Saturday’s forecast is for 80 degrees. Running is encouraged to keep things moving along. Drink water, dress weather appropriate and don’t pass out. Check your gear. Holsters warm up and get loose. Tighten those screws. I get to keep any pistols that fall out on the ground.

Any questions, send me an email through the website to the Executive Officer link. See you there!

MD Legislature HB 1302 Red Flag Alert!

To Arlington Rifle and Pistol Club,

Maryland Shall Issue is sending out this notice about HB 1302. The way this bill is written, it could be a very dangerous bill to gun owners in Maryland. It could come up for a vote on Monday. If it passes, it will be the law of the land. Please let our MD legislators know your opposition to this bill.

Thank you,

It is crunch time! The General Assembly ends at midnight, Monday, April 9. On Saturday, April 7, the House refused to accede to the Senate amendments to HB 1302 and appointed as the House Conference Committee Delegates Dumais, Morhaim, and Corderman. The Senate members will be appointed on Monday, April 9. The House members have already been named! If the bill emerges from Conference (it takes the agreement and a majority vote of 4 to emerge), the bill will come around once again for an up or down vote in each chamber, which must take place by midnight, Monday.

This bill is a monstrosity. For why see our updated write up at https://bit.ly/2HiBq8G?utm_source=Main+Membership+List&utm_campaign=a7e13ea27d-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2018_04_08&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_51231bbc70-a7e13ea27d-65646617 (https://www.marylandshallissue.org/jmain/legislation-tracker/150-hb-1302-the-so-called-extreme-risk-protection-orders-bill?utm_source=Main+Membership+List&utm_campaign=a7e13ea27d-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2018_04_08&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_51231bbc70-a7e13ea27d-65646617)

We are asking all our members and subscribers to contact their legislators and ask for a *no* vote on this legislation. The time to do this is NOW. You can obtain their contact information HERE (http://bit.ly/FindElectedOfficialsMD?utm_source=Main+Membership+List&utm_campaign=a7e13ea27d-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2018_04_08&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_51231bbc70-a7e13ea27d-65646617) . Failing that, we are asking everyone to contact Gov. Hogan and ask for a veto.

His contact information is HERE (https://bit.ly/1I4obnH?utm_source=Main+Membership+List&utm_campaign=a7e13ea27d-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2018_04_08&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_51231bbc70-a7e13ea27d-65646617) . Folks should understand that, under the Maryland Constitution, a veto of this bill cannot be overridden, either in this Session of the General Assembly (it is too late in the Session) or in the next Session (because there is an election before the next Session).
The only way that this General Assembly can override a veto is to convene a special session after sine die on April 9.

Shooting Clinics


We had a very successful Advanced Carbine clinic on 31 March. We had 14 shooters and they certainly showed their competitive side. It was certainly a pleasure to work with such great folks going over some of the most advanced skills ever demonstrated in the history of the AGC. The feedback from all the shooters after the event was overwhelmingly positive. Take a look at a few of the videos on our Facebook page.

We only have two dates on the calendar year for these events. Since reserved dates on the 200yd range are at a premium, I am asking our membership if they would care to have mini-clinics on one Tuesday evening every month in place of a Tuesday night steel on the 200yd range. It would be a formatted event with advanced notice of the skills covered and folks would need to sign up. It would be open to ARPC and AGC members. Yes there will be a fee. I believe there is a need for beginner clinics to get folks in a position where they could attend an advanced level event if they so choose to do so. Send me your feedback and what you would like to see at the clinic via the XO email link on the club website.


Reminder Frame build is tomorrow from 9:00 – 11:45 a.m
