General Information

The Rochester Rifle Club is a civilian shooting organization affiliated with the National Rifle Association since 1914. We are also affiliated with the New York State Rifle & Pistol Association, the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP), USA Shooting, the Shooters Committee on Politcal Education (SCOPE), and the Boy Scouts of America.

RRC provides an indoor shooting range for .22 rimfire rifles or handguns of most calibers with reduced loads only. Magnum cartridges are not allowed. Twelve targets are carrier operated from 50' with a stop at 10 meters for air pistols and rifles.

The club is a membership, non-profit organization. The membership fee is very reasonable. Members have 24/7 access to the club via a key card. Any time that there is not special event, the club is available to members for casual shooting. The club also has several organized team activities that it supports. The Community Pistol League (CPL), NYS Sporterifle, and the RRC Junior club are among the team-oriented organized activities.

Juniors ages 12 - 20 are welcome to join the RRC Junior club/Explorer Post 600, BSA program and/or the NYS Sporterifle program after passing a safety and marksmanship course.

Special programs and activities are posted at the club and here, the range is may only be utilized by program officials during these time frames. Any special program takes precedence over informal shooting practice but they are limited in number to allow many hours of range time for individuals. See the schedule.

Competition is not a requirement. Casual practice for those who want it and competition for the competitors is a service that the Rochester Rifle club is proud to offer its members.
