Welcome to Wakefield Rifle And Pistol Club
We are an independently run shooting club offering both air pistol/rifle and live pistol/rifle range facilities. This is a busy but friendly club where new members are always welcome.
Beginners with little or no prior experience are especially welcome.
WRPC was established in 1977 to promote sportsmanship, competition and training in pistol and rifle marksmanship.
The club is affiliated to the National Rifle Association, the National Small Bore Rifle Association and the Muzzle Loaders Association of Great Britain and we regularly compete locally, nationally and internationally.
Home Office Approval and WRPC Range RestrictionsRecently WRPC’s Home Office Approval expired, and in an effort to keep everyone shooting both FAC and None FAC holders alike the club committee declared B range a “Miniature Rifle Range” under section 11.4 of the Firearms Act 1968.
Taking Up Shooting
Not shot before? No problem. The club’s qualified Range Officers will train you in safety and technique. So long as you’re having fun and you’re safe, you’re welcome.
