Welcome to Arlington Rifle & Pistol Club!

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.

Hesco Berm Work Weekend

Members,

I have been informed that the weekend of December 15th is going to be a Hesco barrier work weekend. Yes, you heard it correctly. Both Saturday and Sunday 0800 to the end of the day, each day. The goal is to get barrier 4 installed in its entirety and the 3 foot top barriers installed on as many of the completed 7ft tall barriers as possible in two days.

The AGC will have everything prepped as usual. They are renting an excavator this time around because it will be needed to fill the 3ft barriers on top of the 7ft ones already filled.

Once again, we are looking for able bodied (not broken) and motivated individuals to stand up barriers as well as hop in and out of barriers to move dirt to the corners between loads from the heavy machinery. I have to apologize in advance if any of your muscles get used and for the slight soreness the following day. Please bring your favorite shovel, gloves and anything to make yourself comfortable to get the job done. Lunch will be provided by the AGC and you will get range badge credits.

This will be our last push for work on the barriers before the spring hits. Hopefully the weather will hold. Thanks in advance for your support.

Sad ARPC member news

Rob Cowan’s father, Henry Shaw Cowan Jr passed away on November 30. Henry was a WW2 veteran and a 44 year member of ARPC. Henry introduced Rob to the club when Rob bought his first AR many years ago. Please keep Rob and his family in your thoughts and prayers.

ARPC Juniors Giving Tuesday Reminder

As you know our Junior’s shooting team, Arlington Rifle & Pistol Club Juniors Shooting Team, ID # R5634 has a team endowment with the MidwayUSA Foundation, a public charity that helps fund youth shooting teams. This endowment helps offset many costs that are associated with a shooting team.

We are asking you and other community members to donate to that endowment on Giving Tuesday, which will be matched!* Every donation helps ensures the future of our shooting team because our endowment will be there forever! Each year, our team is eligible for a cash grant from the endowment to pay for ammunition, travel, uniforms, targets, entry fees and more. Here are a few more reasons we think it’s a great and local cause to support on Giving Tuesday.

  • – Your tax-deductible donation benefits OUR Arlington youth shooting team.
  • – 100% benefits OUR team; the MidwayUSA Foundation keeps nothing for its operations.
  • – A Match! Your contribution will be matched, thanks to the MidwayUSA Foundation’s Matching

    Program, which is funded by Larry and Brenda Potterfield!

  • – A tax deduction. You will receive a gift receipt from the Foundation for your tax records.
  • – Safe, secure, easy to give online from anywhere to OUR team.

    We appreciate any contribution you can make and you can do so online, through the MidwayUSA Foundation website or this link “https://www.midwayusafoundation.org/team-profile/?id=R5634” will take you right to our team page where you can click ‘Donate Now.’ Thank you for supporting our team!

Happy Thanksgiving to our Arlington family,

May you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Thank you for your friendship and support to our club!

Reminder: The November Club meeting will be held Wednesday evening from 7:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. in Memorial Hall

To Arlington Rifle and Pistol Club,

We have our monthly meeting this Wednesday from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. in Memorial Hall. We will review current and upcoming events for the club and the AGC. We will welcome new members and guests. Please bring in any new acquisitions or interesting items for our show and tell. As always we will have a swap meet at the back of the room for items you may wish to sell, trade or give away.

I am very thankful to all of our club members. You are some of the finest people I have ever known. The volunteering you have done over the past year for our club, our Juniors program, the AGC, Women On Target and the community at large has demonstrated who we are as a club.

**Arlington has traditionally made food donations to the local food bank during the Thanksgiving Season. If you are able, please bring some canned goods to our club meeting.

We have invited the AGC to have range badge renewal and to issue new badges for 2019 at our club meeting on Wednesday, November 14th from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m.

Arlington club members do most of the volunteering work at the AGC. Many of our club members don’t bother registering their volunteer hours for range badge credit. Please start registering your volunteer hours with the AGC! Arlington club members can donate range badge credits to the club, which in turn will be donated to help club members who need financial assistance. Thank you for all you are doing to help our club and the AGC. Please let me know if you have donated your volunteer hours to the AGC.

Renewing members must provide: a Drivers License, 2019 Arlington Club Membership Card and an AGC Photo Badge. Credit/Debit cards (Visa, MasterCard and Discover cards are accepted). You can renew your club membership at the meeting with Bob. Arlington dues are $40 for 2019. You can pay your dues with cash, check or credit card.

New badge holders must provide: a Drivers License, 2019 Club Membership Card and a Completed Range Safety Affidavit. Bob will be renewing club memberships at the meeting and at any club event. You can use credit cards to renew your club membership.

The cost of the 2019 range badge:

– Full Year Individual: $190

– Full Year AGC Family $63.00 *(This is the badge for Juniors to get if they want to obtain a range badge). A range badge is not necessary for a Junior if they are shooting at a Juniors practice or if they are supervised by their AGC badge holding parent. It is very helpful for a Junior to have if a parent intends to come to the range when the Juniors are not practicing. Please talk to Coach Chris to determine if it is appropriate for your Junior to obtain a range badge. This is also a reduced cost range badge for family members of a current AGC range badge holder.

– Full year Junior $95 (This does not apply to Arlington Juniors. Arlington requires a parent to have a range badge, so Juniors can get a family range badge).

– 15 year Range Badge $1,750. This is a discounted range badge over the span of 15 years. The proceeds from the sale of this range badge goes towards the building of the action shooting range.

Happy Thanksgiving to you, your family and friends!

Thank you,

Rob

Club members with pickup trucks are needed for this weekend!!!

To Arlington Rifle and Pistol Club,

Howard County Executive, Allan Kittleman has agreed to donate his used political signs to our Juniors. There are a lot of them and we desperately need them for our Juniors fundraiser program. I need help this weekend to pick them up from the Kittleman’s farm in Howard County. It isn’t too far from the AGC range. We need a lot of helping hands and people with pickups to help move the backboards. We have a frame build scheduled for Saturday morning at our club shed. If anyone can help me get them around noon on Saturday or on Monday, Veterans Day, I would be very grateful! We don’t want to loose out on this opportunity.

Thank you,

Rob
