ARPC Giving Tuesday Reminder – Triple your impact.

Turn $50 into $150!

When you give to a shooting team endowment at the MidwayUSA Foundation, it goes to a real youth shooting team that will benefit forever. It will also be matched 2:1, which triples your impact! We are able to provide this match because of the generosity of Larry and Brenda Potterfield. Their passion for young shooters to have opportunities drives our 2:1 Matching Program.

Social-Media-Image---Potterfield-Quote-2.pngNot only does their passion allow us to match every gift 2:1, this year, but we are also able to make sure 100% of every gift goes to THAT shooting team. We keep nothing for operations, again thanks to Larry and Brenda Potterfield. Are you ready to show your appreciation for that passion? Donate to your favorite shooting team, today. Help us raise $100,000 for shooting teams across the nation. We’ll send you a tax receipt for your records too. Simply head to our website and search for your team to get started.

If you’ve already given today, we can’t thank you enough! Together, WE ARE changing the future of youth shooting sports.

Happy Thanksgiving!

To Arlington Rifle and Pistol Club,

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your families!

I am thankful for our wonderful club members. You are Awesome!

A big thanks goes to Rick and Kyle for putting on an amazing 3-gun farewell shoot for Rebecca, Eric and their family and Paul. Kyle, the food was over the top. I don’t think many of us were able to actually walk away. I think waddling would be more accurate. Rick the shoot was a lot of fun for everyone. Thanks to everyone for pitching in to help with the shoot. Thank you to Eric and Rebecca for all you have done for our club. We wish you all the best and hope your new home is more than “OK” in Oklahoma.

Women On Target: Thank you to Wendy for an amazing job implementing Arlington’s Women On Target Program and to all of the Arlington volunteers who helped with the coaching and instruction. A special thanks goes to Jim for the wonderful gourmet food you made this event.

Juniors: I cannot say enough about our Juniors Program. Our coaches: Chris, David and Mike have done an outstanding job! Our Juniors parents are all contributing to the running of the club. This year, we just lost two of our Juniors: Wynn who is now at Ohio State with a rifle scholarship and Torrance, who is a Midshipman on the USNA rifle team. Our program is better than ever. Special thanks to Arlington Club members, who come out to support our frame build fundraisers. I want to also thank Bob for setting up the raffle for Arlington’s MidwayUSA foundation program for our Juniors.

Arlington remodels Memorial Hall: Mark worked almost daily to get Memorial Hall demolished and prepped for drywall. Rick had his guys come out and install drywall. Then came Saint Nic! Nic volunteered three days painting. Thank you very much for your contributions to the AGC, Memorial Hall looks terrific!

Arlington remodeling effort on the AGC rental properties: Arlington volunteers remodeled the first AGC rental property and we have a tenant with a two-year lease. A big thanks goes out to Alan, Jim, Barry, Pat and Jim, who toiled weekly to remodel the house. I also want to thank everyone who came out to spread mulch and plant flowers on the AGC rental property workday.

Arlington is now working on the second AGC rental property. A special thanks to Barry and Pat for helping strip wallpaper and prep the walls for painting.

Thanks to Pat and Rick who organized Arlington volunteers who made many improvements to the AGC on the AGC range days.

I want to thank you for coming out to support our Arlington club events this year. No other club is able to put on the events that we do. Thanks to Mom Pat and Bob for keeping everyone well fed at our club events.

Thanks to our club officers: Harold, Paul, Bob and Bill who have worked tirelessly to improve our club and make Arlington’s events so awesome.

We are very blessed to have club members like you.

Happy Thanksgiving!


Help us honor and say farewell to Eric and Rebecca King and Paul Shinol at a 3 Gun Shoot and an amazing feast this Sunday

To Arlington Rifle and Pistol Club,

Eric and Rebecca King are moving to Oklahoma and Paul Shinol is moving to West Virginia. They have been strong sponsors of our club and have helped promote Action shooting at the AGC.

Arlington and the AGC Action Shooting Program are cosponsoring this celebration to honor the King and Shinol families. Please come out and show your support and have a lot of fun. Arlington club member and AGC Action Shooting Chair, Rick Hensley, has put together an amazing 3-gun shoot for Sunday. It is combining Arlington’s and the AGC’s steel to make the largest 3 gun event that has ever taken place at the AGC. Details of the shoot are included in Rick’s announcement, which is included below.

The food will be amazing. We will have catered pit beef, fresh cut French fries, chili, etc.

Come out and say farewell to our dear friends.

Thank you,



AGC 3 GUN on November 19th, 2017

AGC Action Shooting and Arlington RPC will be joining up for the last 3 GUN of the year and to say farewell to the King family and the Shinol family. Eric and Rebecca are leaving us to move out west in December. Paul and Rebecca will also be moving out of state very soon. Since we all love to shoot and want to say farewell in a lead slinging fashion, AGC Action Shooting and ARPC joined forces to throw a going away 3 Gun Party for the King’s and Shinol’s.

Members from Arlington have volunteered to provide PIT BEEF and FRENCH FRIES and Action Shooting will be providing CHILI and DRINKS plus other goodies. A food donation would be appreciated to help cover costs.

Detailed AGC 3 Gun information can be found on the AGC ACTION SHOOTING website. AGC event fees ($10.00) apply to the 3 Gun portion.

Paul Shinol is the main reason we have ACTION SHOOTING, Steel Certification and Holster Certifications plus the ability for all members and clubs to shoot steel at AGC. During his term as AGC EVP Paul helped change the AGC into a modern shooting range. We will soon have a new BERM and Shooting bays to continue the expansion of ACTION SHOOTING so that all the AGC clubs will be able to conduct their own ACTION SHOOTING programs. This was a very difficult change to make at AGC and those who worked with Paul thru this process understand what he went thru to accomplish this task. Rebecca has also been involved in AGC ACTION SHOOTING and we will miss them both.

Eric has worked as an AGC RSO for some time now and is also retiring from the Navy very soon. Eric is very involved with the Boy Scouts and has participated in many Arlington RPC and AGC programs and Events. Rebecca has been providing training and shooting with the AGC as well as promoting the shooting sports as a competitive shooter.

Eric & Rebecca King and Paul & Rebecca Shinol are great people and we will miss them at the Arlington RPC and the AGC. So, come on out and sling some lead one last time with these fine family’s and wish them well in their future endeavors.

AGC 3 GUN REGISTRATION for November 19th, 2017

We are testing a new way to register and score matches for the AGC Action Shooting 3 GUN Events. We will be using PRACTISCORE to register shooters and report match results for the November 19th match. If you plan on attending please help us out and use the following link to Register. Your help is greatly appreciated.

**Special notice – The AGC is now selling 100 (15 year) range badges for $1,750. The funds raised from selling these 100 range badges will go to building the berm on the 200-yard range. This berm will allow us to expand action shooting at the AGC.
