To Arlington Rifle and Pistol Club,

Rob P. has done an outstanding job as Arlington’s webmaster since 2010. I cannot thank Rob enough for all the support he has given us. Rob has a lot on his plate now and will not be able to continue as our club webmaster.

We need a volunteer who can help us maintain our website. Please contact me president if you are interested in helping out.

Saturday 26 Jan 2019 Action shooting 0900-1200

Members,

We are on the AGC calendar for the new shooting bays on Saturday 26 Jan. The bays are not complete but I know there are some of you that want to do a little something action shooting related. I will be at the club shed at 0900 hrs to load out some steel and stuff. It will be rifle and pistol only. Bring your normal shooting rig for 3 gun minus the shotgun stuff. We will setup something simple and fast under the timer to keep things moving. It will be chilly and the ground will be muddy. We won’t be running around much due to safety concerns with the ground conditions. We will be shutting down around 1200. No food will be provided for this event. Safety Brief is mandatory and will be held around 0930. Not 1030 or 1130hrs.

What you need:
AR 15 in .223/ 5.56
Semiauto Pistol in 9, 40 or 45
Holster (if you are certified)
Two mags for each gun minimum
No green tip, tracers, M855 or penetrator ammo. Steel case Russian ammo is fine.
Full coverage eye protection mandatory
Ear protection
Mag pouches or carriers
Rifle sling if you got one
Weather appropriate footwear and clothing
Range chair so you won’t have to sit in the mud.

See you there

Reminder: Bust Fest Saturday from 9:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. on Trap 4 (Wobble Trap)

To Arlington Rifle and Pistol Club,

We are having a Bust Fest this Saturday, from 9:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. on the Trap 4 (Wobble Trap).
This is a very popular event. Bring a box of clays or $15 to buy a box of birds from the AGC to shoot all day. Target loads only with a velocity of 1200 Feet Per Second (FPS) or less with #7.5, #8 or #9 shot.

There will not be a 3-gun shoot or 200 yard steel shoot this weekend, due to the wet condition of the 200 yard range.

Thank you,

Rob

Mini Frame build tomorrow

To Arlington Rifle and Pistol Club,

If you have some time tomorrow morning, I could use some help. Our frame build fundraiser was snowed out Sunday and the AGC needs the larger frames. I might be having a bigger frame build this coming weekend, but will keep you posted, since they are calling for snow.

I will be at the AGC maintenance building starting at 9:00 a.m. tomorrow. Everything is ready to go, we just need to assemble the frames. No tools or woodworking skills are required. We build the frames on an assembly line basis, where each person performs one or two simple tasks.

Thank you!

Rob

Carbine Clinic

Members,

Holy Toledo! I just put out the announcement for the beginner carbine clinic last night and six of the 15 slots are filled. I guess I need to have more than two of these events per year. I will send out the bulletin next week to answer most of your questions about the event. There is a fee of $100 for this event.

Thanks

Beginner Carbine Clinic in March 2019

Members,

The club is putting together a beginner carbine clinic for March on or about the 30th. Who qualifies? If you shoot already but want to get some practical minded carbine and pistol experience, this might be your ticket. If you have never shot before, we recommend you get more static flat range experience and build some very basic ability to operate AR controls and trigger time.

If you are interested and want more details, please let us know by emailing the XO email address on the ARPC club website. I am sure there are a lot of questions. Those interested will be emailed the event bulletin directly. We have had intermediate and advanced events already and we needed to grow the population of trained and proficient shooters in the AGC. This event is only open to ARPC and AGC members. Those that have attended previous carbine events will tell you how much they enjoyed learning the practical side of shooting. The purpose of this event is to serve the shooter in any situation. Both competition and the zombie apocalypse .There will be only 15 seats. They go quickly. Once I get your email through the XO email address, I’ll lock you in.

The Frame Build is cancelled due to the predicted snow.

To Arlington Rifle and Pistol Club,

We are cancelling Sunday’s frame build. The weather forecast is predicting snow for this late this afternoon, through Sunday. Marriottsville Road is dicey when it snows and I don’t want anyone to get hurt. We will have to reschedule. I will reschedule it for next weekend.

Stay warm and be safe.

Thank you,

Rob
