Marriottsville Range - which club?

I just signed up for a 5 year membership with the NRA tonight. I have been meaning to do this for quite some time, but now that I'm building my first AR-15, I want a place closer than Elk Neck to shoot at. Marriottsville is only about 20 minutes from my house, and I would love to shoot both rifle and pistol outdoors. Yadda yadda yadda. I am just wondering how to choose a gun club that shoots there. Previously, I mostly shot pistols, but now I am developing a growing interest in carbines. I guess I'd prefer a fairly loose affiliation, rather than meeting very often and having frequent group events. Also, if people have any good criteria for deciding which club to join, I'd appreciate that advice as well. Thanks in advance!

I'm rather prejudiced about a particular club - see signature.....

- 1 anual meeting that you don't have to attend
- $20 to join, $17 to renew
- no obligations other than to behave within the AGC rules
- fast responding XO in case you run into any problems

That sounds good to me. I'll join but I don't have my NRA member number yet. Can I put "pending" on that line? Or do I have to wait until they get back to me?

NRA membership is not required, so "pending" will do - with the NRA it is just another word for "we did not get your money yet".

I am prejuduced too! I am from Monumental Rifle and Pistol Club. We are an NRA Gold Club and have received the NRA Outstanding Club of the Year for 2010.

We offer a full range of shooting activities and events. We have an active high power program, Juniors program, Woman's Division and sponsor many charitable shoots and a Wounded Warrior event. We also have educational and instructional clinics and classes. You can attend or participate in as many events as you want. You only need to attend one meeting (in order to join).

If you are interested, please feel free to visit our website, www.monumental.org or come out to our next meeting, Sat March 17, 2012. No pressure to join but you can talk with the members and get to see the range.

All of the 29 clubs are good clubs.

I would go and take a look at all our there web sites.

Email the ones that look interesting

I would stay away from the clubs that do not communicate with the there membership because you will miss out on important information.

Just to add to this, if you want to join Garrison, all you have to do is go to this meeting. After getting accepted, all other meetings are optional.

Check out all the clubs at the associatedgunclubs.com website. Arlington Rifle and Pistol Club has two club shoots a month, a club meeting has an active Juniors team. We have a lot of fun in our club. Check out www.ArlingtonRPC.net. You are welcome to come to our club shoots. We have a Bust Fest Trap shoot Sunday at 9:00 - 1:00. Send me a PM if you would like to come.

There are a lot of great clubs at the AGC. I have a lot of friends from different clubs there. Welcome! Don't forget to join the AGC MD Shooters social group. It's like being in a second club. Great guys!

Once you join one of the AGC clubs, you tend to make friends at the range while shooting!

Like Tball and Damifinowfish have already said, visit some clubs, join one and then come out and shoot!
