competitive spirit, conservation of natural resources, and to provide a safe and proper place to shoot.

We shoot a wide

The Future of River City Rifle and Pistol Club
The club house was moved from the old range and renovation started in the late summer
of 2008. With the donation of a sliding door and three windows in 2008. Electrical rough for the club house was completed
late 2009. 2011 sheet rock was hung. Electricity was run to both the 50 yard range firing line and the 100/200 yard firing
line. A yard light at the entry gate and one at the main parking lot were erected. The cement slab under
the four 100/200 yard benches was poured May of 2009. A new sign in/sign out structure was erected fall of 2009. Eight more
benches and cover were started late fall of 2009 with completion June of 2010. A well and water hydrant
was dug and installed in July of 2011. Our membership has been growing by a minimum of 10% per year
the past six years, with 243 members in 2011.
In the next ten years River
City Rifle and Pistol Club has proposed to build an education and indoor shooting sports facility on the northwest corner
of the range. This facility would enable year round use of both rim-fire and center-fire handguns, smallbore rifles, and air
rifles. Training, education, and competitions will be highly promoted at this new indoor shooting sports facility in addition
to being used by the membership.
