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!

We are a civic organization that recognizes the need in the community for a safe place to conduct all varieties of recreational and competitive shooting. Our goal is to be a destination for not just competition shooting, but also safe recreational shooting for our members and their guests.

Our 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.

We hold several shooting events every month, membership is not required to participate in any of our club shooting sports.

2700 Precision Pistol Matches Have New Day

4th Saturdays, 9:30 a.m.

Match Program

The 2700 pistol matches have moved from the third Sunday to fourth Saturdays beginning in February.

2700 is a total of three 900 point (90 round) matches: .22 rimfire, center fire pistol and .45 caliber. Three pistols can be used, but if you only have a .22 and a .45 caliber pistol, such as a 1911, the .45 caliber can be used twice.

A commom misconception is that someone has to shoot all three 90 round matches in order to participate. Nothing could be further from the case. Only care to shoot one match, maybe two? That's ok, want to shoot only .22 rimfire? That can be accommodated as well.

Check out the shooting sports link to the right for conventional pistol to learn more.

Match Program

CMP Games logo

Have an M1 Garand, Springfield or even a old foriegn military rifle in the back of your gun safe? It's time to get it out and check your 200 yard zero to be ready for the rifle games sanctioned by the Civilian Marksmanship Program.

The CMP Games are a test of the shooter and their rifle against a standard rifle target 200 yards away. The Games at our club include M1 Garands, Springfield bolt action rifles, foreign bolt action military rifles and modern military rifles.

The CMP Games are not equipment races, rather as-issued rifles and sights are used. Gold, silver and bronze pins for each category are awarded based on where each final score fits within established CMP score ranges.

Club Membership is NOT required to participate, cost is only $10 per match fired. Shoot twice with the same rifle as a Re-Entry or bring another in the same or different category. For those who have participated in Appleseed Shoots, it is a great use of the skills learned to become a rifleman.

Shotgun Trap 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.

Evening shoots 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 2pm - 5pm (illuminated at dusk), 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.

Range Workday

The Board of Directors would like to remind members that the third Saturday of the month is range clean up and workday. There is no shooting on that day until all the work is finished. Finsh time will depend on what is being done that day. All of our facilities are maintained by the membership not just through dues but also many volunteer hours.
