Welcome to the Preston and District Rifle and Pistol Club website.

Originally established in 1947, Preston and District Rifle and Pistol Club has been providing shooting sports facilities to its members, both young and old, living in Preston and its surrounding areas for over 60 years.

We currently shoot at two locations: an indoor range situated next to the Preston Grasshoppers Rugby Club (off Lightfoot Lane, Fulwood) for small calibre shooting disciplines and at the Altcar Rifle Ranges (Merseyside) for fullbore shooting disciplines demanding longer distances.

The Club holds regular competitions (see right), enabling its members to engage in competetive shooting sports within an extremely safe and friendly environment.

Conservatives press on with their anti-shooting agenda..

As if the recently ended government consultation headed up by Conservative MP's Nick Hurd and Amber Rudd regarding banning rapid fire (MARS, lever release action) and .50 calibre firearms wasn't enough, we now face yet more attacks on our sport. This time, the grass roots of British shooting is under attack - they are now also looking at licensing air guns in England and Wales.

The proposed rapid fire / .50 calibre bans were discussed at the Club AGM in December and at that stage it was cited that this would likely not be the end of it. Sadly, there is more to come in 2018.

The link below is to the official Home Office release regarding air weapons regulation / licensing in England and Wales:
