Membership in one of the AGC member clubs can offer many opportunities for shooting your favorite firearms in your favorite shooting sports, in a pleasant and safe atmosphere. Membership in an AGC club provides the opportunity to participate in club-level shooting events along the shooting-sport focus areas of the club and its membership. Some clubs tend to focus on some or all modern firearms, including pistol, smallbore and high power rifle, and shotgun clay target sports. Other clubs may be principally interested in muzzle loading black powder firearms and their traditional-type match events. In all cases, each club develops its own annual “calendar” of shooting events, reserves the necessary AGC range(s), and provides, through its membership and range facilities, the infrastructure and camaraderie to attract and recognize/reward club participants.
You are welcome to participate in as many or few of these activities as you wish. If you happen to be new to a particular type of shooting sport, competitive event, or type of firearm, there are club members who are more than willing to help you get involved. There’s one thing that can be said about enthusiastic and experienced shooters: they are always eager to share what they know with those who share the same interests. Come get involved — join a shooting club and come out to the range!
