Big week for Arlington Rifle and Pistol Club

To Arlington Rifle and Pistol Club,

We have three club events this week:

Wednesday, March 13 – We have our monthly club meeting from 7:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. in Memorial Hall. We will cover current and upcoming events with the club and the range. We will also discuss some of what has been going on at the Maryland Legislature. We will have a show and tell where members share their latest acquisition or item of interest with he club. A swap meet at the back of the room, where members can sell, trade or give away items. We will also have door prizes.

Saturday, March 16 – we have a Steel Plate Rifle Shoot on the Barnes Multi-Purpose Range from 9:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. Please nothing larger than .30 caliber. No armor piercing, green or black tips or ammo with a velocity greater than 3,200 feet per second. **Reminder: Eye and Ear Protection is now required on the AGC Ranges.

Sunday, March 17 – We will be having a Juniors Fundraiser Frame Build from 9:00 a.m. – 11:45 a.m. in the AGC Maintenance Building. It is the tan metal building next to Memorial Hall and the Trap range. No tools or special skills are required. We build frames on an assembly line basis where each person performs one or two simple tasks. It is a lot of fun and everyone leaves with a good feeling, because they helped our Juniors program.

Have a great week!

Thank you,

Rob

Carbine Clinic Update

Members,

I will have all my Carbine clinic gear at this Wednesday’s club meeting, 7pm at Memorial Hall. I wanted to welcome the beginner level shooters that might have questions on gear purchases and setup to see the gear I run. All too often, new shooters without sound advice, load themselves and their firearms down with gear that does not favorable effect their ability to shoot better. Gear is a very personal thing and seeing others gear helps the new shooter better decide what works for them. Not mandatory for all attending the carbine event. See you there.

( 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 will be muddy. Eye and ear protection are required if you do not have any please let me know and I will have some available.)

Eye and Ear Protection is now required at the AGC Range

To Arlington Rifle and Pistol Club,

The Associated Gun Clubs now requires eye and ear protection to be used at the range. Our club has eye and ear protection that can be borrowed at our events.

The AGC Range Officers have eye and ear protection for sale at the range office in the Barnes Range House if you wish to purchase them.

Thank you,

Rob

2019 Session – Senate Gun Bill Day #2
Legislative Report #8
February 26, 2019
Dear Rob,

SENATE GUN BILL DAY #2: Wednesday, February 27th at 12 Noon in the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee (JPR).

We need another strong turnout to counter the "Red T Shirt" anti-gun crowd.

See links below, and on our Legislative webpages.

House Gun Bill Day: Quick After Action Report

A total of 19 gun bills were heard beginning at 10 AM on Monday morning, running non-stop all day, into the night, and not ending until approximately 4 AM.

Thanks go out to all to all 1,200 plus gun owners who signed up to testify and especially to those who refused to be silenced by the long wait and stood their ground through the all day and most of the night hearing process.

Special thanks to John Commerford, Deputy Managing Director, NRA/ILA for providing an impromptu pizza party for our side.

We filled the hearing room and several overflow rooms as well; clearly outnumbering the "Red T Shirts", a local anti-gun organization, and out of state Everytown lobbyists.

Well done!

Please continue to encourage your friends and colleagues to join the 2A Maryland Legislative Emaillist. Accurate information in real time is critical to our effort to defeat those who would destroy our rights.
