Volunteers needed for this coming Saturday

To Arlington Rifle and Pistol Club,

I want to thank everyone who came out to help with the Target Sprint last weekend. It was a terrific event.

We need a lot of help this coming Saturday for the Dave Boone Match. We will need help setting up targets and the food tents and tables. We also need some additional hands to help with scoring.

The match runs from 9:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. I will need help setting up the competition targets around 7:30 a.m. so they will be ready in time.

I can’t thank you enough for all the help you have given to our club.

This event was named in honor of Dave Boone. I hope you can come.


Governor Hogan Vetoes the Legislation to Repeal the Handgun Permit Review Board

The Handgun Permit Review Board is composed of citizens of Maryland. The 2019 Maryland Legislature passed a law that would end the citizen Handgun Permit Review Board in Maryland, because the Board has often overturned the restrictions that are added to Wear and Carry Permits in Maryland.

Many Wear and Carry Permit Holders appeal the restrictions on their permits, because it would be all to easy to accidentally violate these restrictions and lead to a permit holder being arrested if an officer believes that a person is not exercising their permit within stated restrictions.

The majority of states in this country do not place such restrictions on Handgun Carry Permits.

Thank you Governor Hogan!

Maryland: Governor Hogan Vetoes Legislation to Repeal Handgun Permit Review Board

Today, Governor Larry Hogan vetoed House Bill 1343 /Senate Bill 1000, legislation to repeal the Handgun Permit Review Board.

House Bill 1343 /Senate Bill 1000 sought to remove citizen oversight regarding the appeals process for Maryland wear and carry permits. Current law allows individuals who are denied a wear and carry permit to file an appeal to the Handgun Permit Review Board, a group of five members of the public appointed by the Governor. HB 1343 /SB 1000 would dissolve this board, thus removing all public oversight, and make all appeals be filed through an administrative office.

Thank you to NRA members who continued to contact their legislators in opposition to this legislation. Also, thank you to those legislators who voted in opposition to SB 1000, and to Governor Hogan for vetoing the bill and preventing the repeal of this important review process.

Arlington’s Target Sprint Is this Sunday!

To Arlington Rifle and Pistol Club,

Sunday Arlington will hold the Target Sprint Biathlon shoot on the 200 yard range. The first heat is at 9:30 a.m., but we need help at 8:00 a.m. to help set up the targets, scoring tables, etc. We also need volunteers to help with the event and food preparation. We need willing hands to pitch in to make this a successful event. It was a lot of fun last fall.

It is a biathlon event, where you run 400 meters, shoot at 5 knock down targets from 10 meters with an air rifle, run 400 meters, shoot at 5 more targets and run 400 meters. Arlington has air rifles that participants can use for this event. Adults are welcome to participate.

The Target Sprint biathlon is extremely popular in Europe. It will be be an Olympic Event at the 2024 Olympic Games. Arlington is one of the few organizations sponsoring this event in the United States. The Civilian Marksmanship Program is sanctioning this event. It is a lot of fun. Come out and give it a try. Who knows, you might be our next Olympian.

You can sign up online if you wish to participate in this event.

If you can’t compete, please come out and give us a hand.

Thank you,

Rob Cowan
President, Arlington Rifle and Pistol Club

3 Gun on 25 May Cancelled


We are in a holding pattern with the new Action range and don’t have any weekend dates reserved on the 200yd range. This Saturday’s 3 Gun is cancelled as a result. So the 4th Saturday 3 Guns will be on our Arlington calendar but will not take place until we have some grass on two of the new shooting bays. We are hopeful that next month ARPC 3 Gun will happen. Thanks for your understanding.


Range Walk-through 5/22/19 @ 6PM

The ARPC Vice President will be hosting a range walk-through for any members and prospective members. Please RSVP to “arlingtonrpc.vicepresident”. I will meet anyone who requires a walk-through on the trap range on Wednesday May 22nd @ 6:00 PM.

( An AGC range walk-through is required before any member can purchase a new AGC range badge, it will take approximately 1hr. Please dress accordingly for the weather, boots are highly encouraged as the ranges can be muddy. Eye and ear protection are required if you do not have any please let me know and I will have some available.)
