Founded in the 1920s and chartered by the NRA in 1944, Pensacola Rifle and Pistol Club
has grown from humble beginnings to a premier shooting location.

Welcome To Our Club!

Located just a few miles north of Cantonment, Florida off Highway 29 at Matheson Road, the Pensacola Rifle & Pistol Club was chartered in 1944 by the National Rifle Association and has maintained affiliation since that time.

Pensacola Rifle and Pistol Club is a civic organization that recognizes the need in the community for a safe place to conduct all varieties of recreational and competitive shooting and has received national recognition for its civic activities. Our goal is to be a destination for not just competition shooting, but also safe recreational shooting for our members and their guests.

The Club is totally dedicated to the preservation of constitutional right of the people to keep and bear arms. We are a 100% NRA Club and is required for membership in our club.

Shotgun Trap Night Shooting Is A Hit!

Our Trap Director, Dave Howery wants to invite all of our club members and their guests to join him for some good fun shooting trap. Club membership is not required to attend, the range gate will remain open during the event.

Now with the time change, Sunday and Thursday schedules will be fired under the lights which makes the birds glow and the when hit look like fireworks.

The new schedule is the 2nd Sunday at 5pm (illuminated), 3rd Thursday at 5pm (illuminated) and the 4th Saturday at 9am. A round of trap is 25 birds, cost per round is only $4.

If you are unfamiliar with shotgun trap, check out the sports page of our club website. Trap is a great way to learn to shoot moving targets, for the hunter and just for fun. Just make sure to bring an extra box or two of shells since one round just won't be enough!

Dave hopes to see you the next time he fires up the throwing machine.

Want To Try Something Different?

Take a look at our Shooting Sports page to see if any of our organized shoots look like something you would like to try. The directors of our shooting programs can answer any questions to help you get started. New shooters are welcome and membership is not required to shoot in any of our matches.

We try to keep match fees very reasonable with no additional fees for non-members. Keep watching the website for new events that we are planning for this fall.

Please Leave The Front Gate Open During Special Events

During matches or other official events on our calendar, our front gate remains open by the director to allow participants who are non-members to enter and exit. After the event is over, the director will close and lock the gate. Please abide by the sign that is posted on the gate to leave it open during special events. This is the only time the gate may be left open.
