Derby Rifle and Pistol Club 1999

Tour the Facilities


Derby Rifle and Pistol Club 1999 has spent a large amount of time and money developing the complex at Twyford and as a result we think that it is one of the best ranges in the country, although we may not have the longest range about, the combination of facilities makes it very appealing to many types of shooter.

The main part of the complex is a secure brick build clubhouse with 16 internal firing points also there are full kitchen and dining facilities along with a comfortable lounge.The range is wheelchair friendly having no steps or ramps to hinder access.

The male, female and disabled toilets have recently been re-furbished and a shower room installed for members use and those camping over during events.

As you can see the A range (25m) is floodlit for evening sessions,

The firing point has infra-red heaters for added comfort during the winter months.

Turning targets were installed during 2009, and there are static targets also at 25m.

The lounge has plenty of seating and the large double glazed window looks out onto the firing points

In the fully equipped kitchen, tea and coffee are available at a small charge.
As an addition to the catering facilities there is also a large gas fired barbecue for outdoor use.

The club dining room also doubles up as the committee meeting room and as with the lounge the windows look out over the firing points.

The clubhouse also has a large target board storage room and numerous lockers are available for hire at a small charge.

The 50 metre B range, consists of 5 firing points and is fitted with a brand new state of the art set of electronic turning targets, also barricade sockets have been fitted at 50 & 25 metres to allow for LBR shooters.

It is a great addition to the facilities. Being a fully independent walk forward range it can be used for many disciplines.


Our main range, the C range consists of 12 firing points at 50m 12 at 100 and 8 at 200 (actually 187yds due to the Twyford brook ) there are shooting benches at each distance and the 200 point has a raised all weather platform a full set of turning targets are fitted to complete the setup.

As you can see we have an excellent facility at DRPC 1999 and over the coming years we will try to continue the improvements and develop it with even more, to satisfy every type of target shooter.
