While MSI members may use their membership for badge renewal, we encourage our members who already belong to one of the many clubs that comprise the AGC to maintain that membership and continue supporting that club. AGC clubs are absolutely necessary to promote the growth of shooting sports in Maryland and they deserve your support. We are honored and grateful to have been welcomed by the clubs at the AGC and are looking forward to working together to promote Marylanders’ rights and the responsibilities that come along with them.

About the AGC



The Associated Gun Clubs of Baltimore, Inc. was formed on July 1, 1944, when several World War II veterans in the Baltimore, Maryland area began looking for a place to shoot recreationally and competitively. They organized with several other Baltimore area shooting clubs to form the “AGC”.

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 offers a 50yd pistol range, 100yd multipurpose range, 200yd hi-power range, action shooting bays, trap shooting, and more.

You can read more about the AGC and its facilities HERE.

How do I get a Range Badge?

To obtain a range badge as an MSI member, a person must attend a Range Safety Orientation and participate in a walk-through of the AGC Range facilitates (a 90-minute process) conducted by a Certified Club Instructor and agree to follow and obey AGC Range Rules. MSI offers these orientations at least once a month at no extra cost to its members. They can be signed up for at https://tinyurl.com/MSIAGCWalk. If no dates are available, email  for availability.

Before coming to an orientation or visiting the AGC, it's a great idea to take the Range Rules Quiz.

After the walkthrough and to buy the badge, members will need:

  • Proof of active MSI membership: The AGC will accept a printed or digital receipt of your membership or display showing your membership. You can do this from your account page, or by showing your MSI confirmation email.
  • Government-issued photo-ID
  • Form of payment (cash, credit card*, or check)
    *If using an Apple Card, the AGC's staff must enter the card's virtual numbers manually.

    Additional information about range badges can be found HERE and more information about the AGC can be found HERE.

We need MSI members to volunteer to serve as Certified Instructors/Safety Officers to conduct Range Safety Orientations for existing or new Members. Please let us know if you are willing to serve in that capacity by dropping us an email at . Members are also invited to attend AGC Range Workdays, for maintenance and upkeep of the Range. Time thus spent can reduce the cost of the annual range badge. Please feel free to contact us at  or to call at 410-849-9197.

Montgomery County Bill 21-22E is in Effect

It is now practically impossible for anyone other than active police officers and security guards to lawfully carry a firearm for personal defense in public within Montgomery County.


UPDATE 12/7/22:
MSI has moved for a Temporary Restraining Order and Preliminary Injunction against aspects of Bill 21-22E.
 
On 11/28/2022, Montgomery County Executive Marc Elrich signed Bill 21-22E into law. The Bill goes into effect immediately. The Bill has now banned the possession, transport, sale or transfer of any firearm in countless locations across Maryland's most populous county. It is now legally very risky to carry a firearm in Montgomery County with a wear and carry permit. Bill 21-22E repealed the prior exemption for permit holders and then imposes its bans on a long list of locations, including within 100 yards of such locations.  It is simply impossible, as a practical matter, to possess and transport a firearm in the County in public with a wear and carry permit in compliance with the County's gun laws. That is because it is nearly impossible to move around the County without entering one or more of the many 100-yard exclusion zones enacted by Bill 21-22E.
