Welcome to Arlington Rifle & Pistol Club!

Members of Arlington Rifle & Pistol Club who purchase AGC range badges are authorized to use all of the AGC Ranges and other facilities.   You can click here to learn more about the AGC Ranges.  The AGC Ranges are located at 11518 Marriottsville Road, Marriottsville, MD 21104

Club meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month, starting at 7:00 P.M. at the Marriottsville Trap Range.  

We encourage all of our members to get involved with club activities and we strive to provide activities that meet the diverse interests of our members.  Monthly club shoots and instructional programs are held on the first or second Saturday and the second or third Sunday of each month from 9:00 A.M. to 3:00 P.M. at the Marriottsville Range. Prospective members and guests are always welcome to attend our club-sponsored events.

We have a very active program for Junior shooters.  We shoot at the indoor air rifle range during the winter months and we use the Barnes range at Marriottsville for small bore shoots during the Spring, Summer, and Fall.
