Frame Build This Saturday!

The AGC is down to six target frames.  We need to have a fundraiser frame build to support our Juniors Program this Saturday, June 11th from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. near our club shed on the Barnes Range.   No tools or special skills are required.  We work 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 you helped to support our Juniors Program.
Since we are having a frame build a week early, we will be canceling the scheduled frame build on the 18th.
Don’t forget the pistol Shoot on Sunday!

29 May 2016 Arlington Rifle and Pistol 3-Gun Steel Event

Sunday 29 May 0900-1500 hrs, Arlington Rifle and Pistol will be hosting a 3-Gun Steel event on the AGC 200yd range. It is open to ARPC, AGC members and invited guests only. It has been a while since we have had a 3-Gun event and the weather is forecasted to be beautiful. The club recently made a large steel purchase that includes pepper poppers, pistol plate rack, and knockdown shotgun targets. This will be the most elaborate course of fire to date.

What you need:

AR semiauto rifle that shoots .223 or 5.56 (no armor piercing or M855 green tip)
Semiauto pistol in 9, 40 or 45 (no magnum rounds)
Shotgun (pump or semiauto) Bird shot ammo only
Magazine fed shotguns are fine but be prepared to be ridiculed while you jam after every round fired.
Minimum 2 magazines per firearm
Minimum 150 rds of rifle and pistol, 100 rds bird shot
Serviceable holster rig to carry pistol and magazines
Hearing protection
Full coverage ballistic eye protection (Wal-Mart sunglasses or standard prescription eyewear doesn’t count)


Folding chair, shotgun shell caddy, rifle mag holder, rifle sling, water, gun cleaning kit, sunscreen, bug spray, hat, and a willingness to win

Course of Fire:

You will find out the course when you arrive. The load out is not specified. Carry as much as you want. This course of fire will require running as there is a large distance between shooting points. In an effort keep things moving and allowing for multiple runs per person, the match director will ask that everyone be ready to shoot when they come to the line and hustle to reset the steel and move off the course.

Safety and Administrative:

Safety brief is at 0900. No one shoots without a safety brief. Those that wish to help with setup, may show up at the club shed at 0800 for load out and setup. We will have chow cooked on the range for donations, so bring some cash. There is a $10 dollar donation per shooter for the event. Donations will go to the club steel fund. Anyone looking to become an ARPC member, may apply at the event. We should also have some ARPC T-shirts for sale for $15.

Please do not ask to shoot any firearms other than AR semiautos, standard semiauto or pump shotguns and typical semiauto pistols. We hate to bring this up every time but there is always one shooter that wants to shoot grand daddy’s musket, M1 or Makarov pistol. This is a friendly but competitive event. Standardization of firearms minimizes risk and keeps everyone from waiting to shoot while you load or fix a jammed musket. So please don’t be that fella that shows up with a baseball bat to play football.

Above all, it is Memorial Day weekend. It is the tday that we remember and show respect for those that died during combat actions. So come out and have some fun slingin’ rounds at steel in their honor.
