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.
Ready To Start The New Club Year?
July 1, our club started it's new year and we added 28 new members at that time. We look forward to seeing new faces on the range and hope you enjoy everything our facility has to offer.
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. Match fees are very reasonable and there are no additional range fees charged.
Keep watching the website for new events that we are planning for this fall.
Shotgun Trap Practices to Resume
Our club expresses great thanks to Ken Parker for his years of service on the Board of Directors and dedication to running our Trap program. With his stepping down, the Board named David Howery the new Trap director.
Dave is looking forward to getting Trap running very soon; keep watching the website for program and schedule updates. Club membership is not required to participate.
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.

The National Matches at Camp Perry, also known as the "Disney World for shooters" have opened registration for this year. The matches are held every summer by act of Congress and are broken down into two categories: National Trophy Matches and CMP Games Matches.
The Rifle Trophy Matches are fired using iron sight service rifles at 200/300/600 yards. The CMP Games are more casual and include M1 Carbines at 100 yards, M1 Garand, Springfield bolt actions and Vintage military bolt action rifles at 200 yards. The Pistol Trophy Matches are fired at 50 and 25 yards.
If you are unfamiliar with matches of these kind, the US Army Marksmanship Unit holds Small Arms Firing School (SAFS) for rifle and pistol. Classroom training combines with range practice and culminates in friendly competition where participants can earn 4 leg points that go toward earning the badges for Distinguished Rifleman and Distinguished Pistol Shot!
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.
