Oundle Rifle and Pistol Club is a thriving target shooting club in Northamptonshire. We shoot a wide variety of disciplines and enjoy strong and active support from our membership. The Club is located in Oundle, a small market town in East Northamptonshire close to Peterborough. We have five different ranges across two separate sites and cater for full-bore, small-bore, air-[rifle|pistol], gallery rifle, black-powder, mini rifle and practical shotgun.

The club was founded in 1928 as a ‘miniature rifle’ club (.22LR) and apart from an enforced closure during WW2 and COVID, shooting has continued uninterrupted ever since.

Oundle has 2 indoor 25 yard ranges, of which the original range was opened in 1928. This range was refurbished in 2009 and contains 4 prone firing points for small-bore rifle shooting. The newer range built in 1986, is certificated for firearms up to pistol calibres and is proudly equipped with Olympic standard turning targets. The facilities include parking, club room, coffee and toilets.

Barnwell has 3 outdoor ranges offering distances – 25 metres, 50 metres and 100 yards and is open at weekends and on select days during the week. All 3 ranges have covered firing points and the facilities include parking, disabled access, clubroom, coffee and toilets.

The new facilities at Barnwell are amongst the best in the country and continue to attract new members across many counties. Current membership as of May 2023 stands at 440 members.

We are a Home-Office approved club and we’re affiliated to the NRANSRA and the UKPSA.
