Welcome to the web site of the Associated Gun Clubs of Baltimore, Inc. (AGC), located in Marriottsville, Maryland. The Associated Gun Clubs of Baltimore, Inc. was formed on July 1, 1944 when a number of World War II veterans in the Baltimore, Maryland area began looking for a place for recreational and competitive shooting. They organized with several other Baltimore area shooting clubs to form the “AGC”.
The AGC is governed by a Board of Trustees, comprised of fifteen voting members elected by the Charter clubs who originally formed the Association. The Board of Trustees meets monthly to act on AGC business. The AGC was chartered by and for its member clubs, and functions and exists to:
Operate a target shooting range facility offering ranges which meet the requirements of all shooting disciplines;
Provide hunter and target shooting instruction courses which promote general firearm safety;
Offer matches, programs, and events which encourage adult and youth participation in the shooting sports;
Support, encourage, and actively promote the private ownership of firearms for all law abiding citizens.
The AGC range facility is located on sixty acres in northwest Baltimore County, at the junction of Marriottsville Road and Wards Chapel Road (see Directions).
The range offers all clubs’ members, their families and guests a safe, maintained, and clean location to enjoy the shooting sports year round.
The AGC range offers:
A fifty-eight point outdoor range, firing at 25 and 50 yards, with covered firing line — equipped to handle NRA conventional pistol match competitions;
A 100-yard, benchrest-equipped, rifle, black powder, shotgun, and pistol range, with covered firing line — firing at intermediate distances of 25, 50, and 75 yards;
