ARPC 3 Gun event, Sunday 22 July 2018

Members,

We will be holding our first club 3 Gun event on the new shooting berm on Sunday 22 July from 0900-1300hrs. The range area is still a work in progress and we will still only have one bay to use. More details will be included in the safety brief.

Ammo requirements:

.223/ 5.56 only for rifle (no green tip or armor piercing)

9, 40, 45 for pistol (no magnum)

Trap load only shot for shotgun

Firearms:

AR and AR type variants. No AR pistols or AK’s.

Semi-auto pistols preferred

Shotgun of your choice as long as it operates safely.

No fully semi-automatic firearms please.

Gear:

Holster, mag holders, shell caddy, pistol belt, full coverage eye protection, ear protection, wear appropriate clothing for the weather, and bring at least two mags per gun. Work gloves are a good idea if you are handling steel. A folding chair is recommended.

We will be at the Arlington club shed for load out at around 0800hrs and then setup on the new range to the left of the 200yd range.

The safety brief is at 0900 and every shooter arriving will get a brief before they participate. The event starts as soon as everyone is briefed. No one shoots without a safety briefing. This is formatted event with a 0900 start time. Only shooters that arrive on or before the start time will be allowed to shoot in the first run. Late comers will have to go to the end of the line when the first run is complete. We need everyone to participate in target resets during the event. Help with setup and/or breakdown is appreciated.

The ground is uneven with random holes and roots sticking up from the ground. We will mark them as best we can.

Parking is at the base of the 200yd range and in front of the new shooting area. You will see others backed in and on the grass. You are welcome to do the same.

The weather is forecast to be wet. We will make a weather call on Saturday night if we cancel.

Shooter donation for the steel fund is $10.

ARPC Static shooting events

Members,

I hope you are all enjoying the heat wave. Lot of shooting going on. At a our last club meeting, we discussed how many events we have to support throughout the year. We have a lot of great volunteers but I am looking for a few folks to step up and run a static pistol or rifle event. They are pretty administrative in nature. I would make sure they are trained from soup to nuts on safety and how we do things. Not to complain but our board is run pretty ragged to support our members with as many events as we conduct. Every static shoot needs an event coordinator/ range safety officer to run the event. We also would like some volunteers to run the cooking duties to give Bob and Pat a break.

Being the most active club in the AGC is what makes out club so attractive to members. We can only do this with great volunteers.

Please contact me if you are interested.

Thanks

ARPC XO

To Arlington Rifle and Pistol Club,

We will be having a frame build benefitting our Juniors program, this Saturday morning at our club shed from 9:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. This is the busy period for frame sales when the AGC range badges go on sale for half price for first time badge holders. No woodworking skills or tools are required. We build frames on an assembly line, where each person completes one or two simple tasks.
