An excellent facility with 25m, 50m and 185yd ranges, Clubroom with lounge, kitchen and toilets. Members mainly shoot Ruger 10/22, Gallery rifles, sporting and F class rifles, travelling to Open events to compete. Recently there has been renewed interest in shooting with muzzle loading black powder pistols, revolvers and rifles.

REMINDERS

When visiting the Club out of normal Club Session hours do not lock the main gate, this is in case emergency services need access. Of course lock the gate if you are last to leave.

Remember to sign in, as must any visitors - even if they are not shooting.

Please be aware of the permitted shooting times and restrictions.

It is important to record your visit and what firearms you have used in the register (by the phone in the lounge)
The Secretary is being asked for detailed information by the police when a Member’s FAC is being renewed.
So remember to state the calibre and type of firearm you have used.

C Range Targets 

The static target frame system on C Range has now replaced. 

The new system comprises of a holding frame bolted to the wooden sand retaining wall. These holders have a bolt, wing nut and clamp board to secure the target board to the frame in a similar manner to the system on A Range. These will be more stable in windy conditions. 

The new target boards are plywood with a slot cut in them the same as is used on A and B range. They are stored in the wooden boxes by the sand bank. 

IMPORTANT To ensure that the holding frames are not damaged by low impacting bullets please ensure that your rifles are correctly set up for the range you are shooting at. If you are unsure of your sight setting, start at a closer range before moving back to 100 and 200.

AWARD IN RECOGNITION OF SUPPORTING DISABLED TARGET SHOOTERS.

 

Derby Rifle & Pistol Club 1999 has become one of the first shooting clubs in the country to be recognised as a Target Shooting Organisation that caters for People with Disabilities or Impairments.

A certificate of recognition was recently awarded to club at the Annual Disabled Shooting Awards, held at Bisley the National Shooting Centre in Surrey. The awarding body is the Disabled Shooting Project, sponsored by British Shooting and Sport England. The event was attended by ninety disabled shooters from all over England.

The club has seven members registered disabled and has over the last three years undertaken major improvements to make the clubhouse and range areas disability friendly by building new disabled toilet facilities, shooting supports and platforms for wheelchair users.    

In keeping with the Disabled Shooting Project, the club is keen to promote Target shooting as the most accessible, inclusive and integrated of all mainstream sports.

The club secretary said: "We are proud that our efforts as a club willing to assist disabled members - have been recognised by three of the sport’s governing bodies."

A new Photo Gallery has been installed and images going back to 2004 can be seen. It would be great to get some older photos from pistol days- have you got any?
