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 Trap League Announcement

ARPC sponsored Saturday Evening Trap League

The first competitive event for the Saturday Evening Trap League is coming up this weekend (May 4th). The League is proving to be very popular. Currently they have a roster of 31 individuals representing twelve different AGC clubs. There’s room for more so I would encourage all trap enthusiasts, novice or expert, to join in.

The League is handicapped by virtue of the Lewis Class Scoring System which will be used to assign end-of-year awards. As such, individuals are competing against others of similar ability.

If you want to participate, contact Richard Durant at nabalab@comcast.net so he can get your name on the check-in list and get your name badge printed.

Specifics are:

  • only AGC card holders, or immediate family members thereof (i.e. wife, son or daughter), and active Junior members of an AGC affiliated club will be allowed to compete

  • any safe shotgun may be utilized and ammo must comply to AGC standards (i.e. 1200 fps max muzzle velocity; #7½, 8 or 9 shot)

  • the League competes on the first Saturday of each and every month from May through October (6 events)

  • check-in is on Trap #3 at 5:15pm and shooting begins at 6pm

  • the course of fire each month consists of two rounds of trap and your total number of hits constitute your monthly score

  • your end-of-season score will be the total of your four best monthly scores

  • monthly costs, to cover the birds, are $8 for AGC members, $12 for immediate family members, and $6 for Juniors (trap tickets will be accepted)

  • there is a onetime $15 entry fee that goes into a prize fund

  • end-of-year awards will be given out based on the Lewis Class scoring system; the rule of ‘one class for every six shooters’ will prevail

  • 1st and 2nd place prizes will be awarded in each class (have roughly a one in three chance of winning)

  • a shooter will be allowed to enter the League at any time, but must compete a minimum of four months to be eligible for end-of-year awards

Reminder: Arlington Picnic and Bust Fest

To Arlington Rifle and Pistol Club,

Tomorrow Arlington will be having a club picnic at the Trap Room of Memorial Hall and Bust Fest on the Wobble Trap #4. Please feel free to bring your family. There is no charge for clays; the club bought them for this event. It’s a great opportunity to bring your family out and let them shoot some clays.

The club will supply hotdogs, brats and burgers. Brian is cooking his gourmet chicken and Kyle is making his famous home made French Fries. If you can bring a side dish or desert, it would be wonderful, but don’t worry if you can’t.

Ammo Restrictions for the Bust Fest are: target loads only with #7.5, #8 or #9 shot with a velocity of 1200 Feet Per Second (FPS) or less.

The Bust Fest is from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. and the picnic will start around 10:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

I hope you can make it. It will be a lot of fun.

Thank you,

Rob Cowan

The 3 Gun scheduled for 27 April and TNS for 30 April are cancelled. As a note, the berm barrier installation effort will be ramping up again in a week or so.

More to follow so keep an eye out for more emails.
