» GGC History and Purpose

The Goddard Gun Club was formed at the Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) in Greenbelt, Maryland in 1967 to provide an organization for NASA employees and contractors who enjoy firearms.

In 1973 the Club was successful in establishing a firing range on the east side of the GSFC campus.

Although the range was closed by then Center Management in 2001, the Club continues to promote a variety of activities centered around the safe and legal use of firearms.

Additionally, the Club is an Associate Club of the Associated Gun Clubs of Baltimore which permits GGC Club members to join the AGC and thereby have access to the AGC ranges in Marriottsville, MD, just west of Baltimore. As an AGC member club the GGC hosts several shooting events a
t AGC each year which are open for all Club members to attend.
