Roof repair project at the AGC tomorrow starting at noon

To Arlington Rifle and Pistol Club,

If anyone is available tomorrow around 12:00, we will be working on repairing the roof at the pistol pavilion and could use some help. We will be screwing sheets of corrugated metal down to the wooden frame. It shouldn’t take long to do this. If you can make it, please bring leather gloves for handling the 2′ x 4′ and 2′ x 6′ corrugated metal sheets. If you have a cordless drill please bring it, but we will be okay without it. It shouldn’t take more than two hours to do this project. Anyone who comes out to help can earn range badge credits towards the purchase of your range badge for next year.

Thank you,

Rob

3 Gun Steel Event, Sunday July 24th

Sunday 24 July 0900-1500 hrs, Arlington Rifle and Pistol will be hosting a 3-Gun Steel event on the AGC 200yd range. It is open to ARPC, AGC members and invited guests only. It has been a while since we have had a 3-Gun event and the weather is forecasted to be sunny and in the high 90’s.

What you need:

AR semiauto rifle that shoots .223 or 5.56 (no armor piercing or M855 green tip)
Semiauto pistol in 9, 40 or 45 (no magnum rounds)
Shotgun (pump or semiauto) Bird shot ammo only
Magazine fed shotguns are fine but be prepared to be ridiculed while you jam after every round fired.
Minimum 2 magazines per firearm
Minimum 150 rds of rifle and pistol, 100 rds bird shot
Serviceable holster rig to carry pistol and magazines
Hearing protection
Full coverage ballistic eye protection (Wal-Mart sunglasses or standard prescription eyewear doesn’t count)

Suggestions:

Folding chair, shotgun shell caddy, rifle mag holder, rifle sling, water, gun cleaning kit, sunscreen, bug spray, hat, and a willingness to win

Course of Fire:

You will find out the course when you arrive. The load out is not specified. Carry as much as you want. This course of fire will require running as there is a large distance between shooting points. In an effort keep things moving and allowing for multiple runs per person, the match director will ask that everyone be ready to shoot when they come to the line and hustle to reset the steel and move off the course.

Safety and Administrative:

Safety brief is at 0900. No one shoots without a safety brief. Those that wish to help with setup, may show up at the club shed at 0800 for load out and setup. We will have chow cooked on the range for donations, so bring some cash. There is a $10 dollar donation per shooter for the event. Donations will go to the club steel fund.

Please do not ask to shoot any firearms other than AR type semiautos, standard semiauto or pump shotguns and typical semiauto pistols. We hate to bring this up every time but there is always one shooter that wants to shoot granddaddy’s musket, M1 or WWI service pistol. This is a friendly but competitive event. Standardization of firearms minimizes risk and keeps everyone from waiting to shoot while you load or fix a jammed musket.With that said, clean your gun and make sure it functions properly. We have had a fair amount of malfunctions on the range due to poor firearms maintenance.

It will be very hot this weekend, so plan accordingly. Most of all, plan to have lots of fun.

See you at the range!

Volunteers are needed to help with Ladies day at the Range this Saturday

To Arlington Club Members,

Arlington Club member Rebecca King is sponsoring a Ladies Day at the range this Saturday. Rebecca and her husband Eric needs help with logistics and coaches. So far, 23 ladies have signed up to take the pistol class. They need a lot of help with coaching, watching the line, set up and taking down and with food. The attached flier contains information about the class and Rebecca and Eric’s contact information. Also, if you have a .22 pistol you can let them use for the class, it would be most appreciated.

Please come out and give them a hand with this worthy cause.

Have a great week!

Thank you,

Rob
