A Brief History and Description
of the Associated Gun Clubs of Baltimore, Inc.

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”.

During its early years, the Associated Gun Clubs of Baltimore, Inc. was formed by 15 fifteen “Charter” member shooting clubs. Today, these 15 Charter member clubs, plus an additional 17 “Associate” member clubs, form the AGC.

Strictly speaking, there are no individual “members” of AGC. Everyone is a member of one or more of the “associated gun clubs” that make up the AGC. Once you are a member in good standing of any of the associated gun clubs, you become eligible to purchase an AGC range badge. Club members, who hold an AGC range badge, are permitted use of all of the ranges owned by the AGC at our Marriottsville facility.

Important Note:  An AGC range badge does NOT authorize you to shoot on any range other than the Associated Gun Clubs of Baltimore ranges in Marriottsville.

We need you to be fully cognizant of the AGC Range rules. Your selected club’s New Member Instructor will walk you through the entire facility and go over the range rules along the way. The Range Orientation Affidavit will need to be completed and signed by both you and the Instructor and turned in when purchasing your AGC Range Badge.
