Howdy from Ft Meade

FNG here. Mil guy unfortunately stationed in MD, and just trying to make the most of it while I'm stuck here. Open to suggestions on places to shoot that aren't On Target, since I can't bring any of my rifles there.

You can go Assoc. Gun Clubs 0f Balto. website. Mariottsville range Rt. 70 W. You have join one of the 28 clubs that use the range. Well worth it. I've been a long time member. They may have a military discount to. Thanks for your service for our country.

I second the Associates Gun Club option. My friend worked on the other side of Meade and he and I would often go up to AGC in the early evening or weekends.

The only wrinkle is their mandatory safety briefing is held on a monthly basis (normally a Sunday morning). Maybe they waive for active duty (my friend was Naval Reserve).

You can shoot pistol caliber rifles there, but 25 yards is their maximum distance for targets. Iíve taken my .30 caliber M-1 carbine there several times, as well as my 9mm and, of course, .22 rifles.

Thanks for the input. I had actually looked at them (briefly) but was hoping to avoid having to join any clubs, as I'm not sure how long I'm going to be here. I appreciate the suggestion all the same. Might end up biting the bullet and joining up anyway if all else fails.

Yeah, but I can't bring my AR or my 308, so they're really of no use to me. Not worth going to the range if it's just to bring my pistol out.

Isnít there a 400 yard range on base? Berwyn rifle club is much closer than AGC.

You can shoot pistol caliber rifles on the 100 yd. range at any distance.

Also at Ft Meade here. I used to take the hike to La Plata to shoot my rifles at Myrtle Grove. I've since become a member at Berwyn Rod & Gun. They have great facilities and are only 20 minutes away.
