    AGC is located at 11518 Marriottsville Road, Marriottsville, MD 21104. Just click on the link for the address in the sticky post at the top of the page. It will take you to the address on Google Maps. The entrance to the pistol range and 100-yard rifle range are off Wards Chapel Rd. However, the entrance for Memorial Hall is AGC Lang west of Wards Chapel. You will see a blue street sign saying “AGC Lane.” There is also a wooden sign next to it pointing to the Trap Range.
