Welcome to the Portsmouth City Rifle Club website.

Portsmouth City Rifle Club is one of the Districts oldest gun clubs established in 1907 and is a non profit organization. We specialise in Small-bore and Air Rifle Target Shooting. Safety is our most vital concern. Members are required to display the ablility to use firearms safely and pass a probationary period of shooting under supervision.


We have two indoor ranges and can cater for many disciplines including prone, kneeling, standing and  Bench-rest. There are also facilities for pistol shooters. If you are a new shooter then we can support you with coaching. For the more experienced shooter there are matches and competitions to take part in.

The club competes in various leagues, postal competitions and open meetings, these include the Bisley and Scottish meetings. 

Please surf the website to learn more about the club, its facilities and ranges. Then visit the membership page and learn how you can enjoy shooting sports at the Portsmouth City Rifle Club.
