3-Gun Shoot Saturday, October 31st


Reminder: 3-Gun Shoot Saturday, October 31st from 9:00 – 3:00 p.m. Please come out around 8:00 a.m. if you can to help with set up. There will be a safety briefing at 9:00 a.m.

Since it is Halloween, the participant with the best costume wins a prize.

The 3 Gun events will be the same format as previous with a few changes.

The ammo restrictions are the same but the shooter can carry as much as they want on their person for the COF. No slugs or Buck shot use only bird shot, no armor piercing (M855), magnum or equivalent, only .223/5.56 for rifle. Semi auto rifle only, no bolt action or relics. Semi auto pistol with no magnum rounds. No limit on mag size or capacity. Pump or semi auto shotguns allowed. Problematic magazine fed shotguns, although cool, tend to jam and slow down the event. Bring em if you want but be prepared for the dirty looks like someone gives an old person that writes checks in the line at Walmart.

Drawing from the holster with a dry gun/ no magazine inserted only. Shooter must load pistol on the line and only after the pistol is drawn.

The COF will be scored by hits only and missed steel is a 5 second penalty added to final time. Estimate COF to be less than 2-3 minutes for the slowest shooter. No reset time needed as all targets are steel.

COF will be briefed that morning. There will be rifle, shotgun and pistol steel to shoot at. I am planning to run this like a match this time, so shooters that just want to plink and try new guns should come on a Tuesday night steel event.

Event will be $10 per shooter.

3 Gun Shooting Event – Saturday 24 Oct 2015

Arlington Rifle and Pistol Club will be hosting another 3 Gun Steel Event this Saturday from 0900-1500hrs. This is our popular format event with barricades and plenty of steel to hit. The cost will be $10 for shooters and there will be food on site. So, bring some cash for eats.

  • Semiautomatic Pistol with 2 mags minimum (100 rounds minimum)
  • Semiauto or pump shotgun with bird shot only (25 rounds minimum)


  • You will need a serviceable pistol holster and mag carrier of some sort

  • 9mm, 40SW, 45 ACP are the preferred rounds for pistol. No magnums.

Violators will be asked to leave.

Course of Fire:

Shooters can expect to expend about 10 rounds of rifle ammo, 8-10 pistol rounds and 6 shotgun bird shot per course of fire. The target arrangement will be determined the morning of the match. There will be required movement between stages with firearms. Scoring will be based on the fastest time for hitting all the targets. There will be a penalty of +5 seconds to your raw time for every target missed.

Important notes:

The safety brief will begin around 0900-0915hrs. If you arrive late, you may not participate until briefed by the match RSO. This event is to test the practical and tactical ability of shooters. Firearm and ammunition restrictions are for there for your safety and to keep the playing field somewhat even while keeping the flow of the event moving along. So please no muskets, slingshots, bolt action, or flintlocks. No wearing of magazines in your socks or in your hat.  There will be a small prize for the match winner and runner up. See you there!

Old Post Sponsoring Women’s Charity Trap and Training

We need to support our friends in Old Post who are sponsoring a Woman’s Charity Trap and Training program on November 7th. They will provide instructions, firearms, ammunition, birds and lunch. The proceeds will go to the Ulman Cancer Fund for young adults. This is a very worthy cause. It is $50 but if you think about $10 x 2 for the ammo, two rounds of trap, getting instruction and food all being included, this is a pretty good deal. The program will be similar to the Women on Target Program. It is a great opportunity for women who want to learn or improve their trap shooting. Please encourage your wives, daughters and other women you know, to come out and support this charity that is doing such terrific work for young adults who have cancer. I have personally been to events where survivors praised the support they received from the Ulman Cancer fund while they were fighting their cancer.

Thank you,

Tuesday Night Steel Shoots

Tuesday Night Steel 13 Oct 2015 1730-2000 hrs

Well, it is official. The AGC Trustees approved our night shoot concept and we will begin next Tuesday 13 Oct. The day portion will remain the same as usual until dusk. We will then transition gear out for night shooting gear, give the night brief and get to work.

It is important to note that the night shoot is for experienced day tactical shooters from our Tuesday Night Steel events and not for beginners. A lot of the night shooting risk is mitigated through training and vetting shooters at the day shooting events by the ARPC XO. So please, no beginners at the night shoots. In addition, the RSSOP committee approved our night shoot status with the caveat that we properly rack and use ECI’s while firearms are not carried as well as keep control of people coming onto the the range to participate. More details will be provided at the event.
