The leading IPSC practial shotgun club in the country, now based in Dartford!
We specialise in the dynamic, exciting sport of practical shotgun shooting. We also organise full bore rifle shoots for our members on other ranges. We are Home Office approved and affiliated to the UKPSA.
Our members include current and former champions at both national and international levels, as such, we focus very much on the competative aspects of the sport. The shooting action focusses on speed and accuracy whilst maintaining safety and to this end, each shooter (even the champion!) is supervised on a one to one basis by a range officer.
We operate 10 different ranges which will have different courses of fire set up, usually from the last competition we hosted, so there is plenty of variety.
Our club is located withion the grounds of Dartford Clay Shooting Club, which is just south of the Dartford crossing. Members travel to our club from all over the South East, our catchment area seems to be about 2 hours drive.
We are open to visitors and new members. Prospective new members are encouranged to come first as a visitor to see how they like it, before applying for membership. Once you have applied for membership, you will be joined initially as a probationary member before being accepted as a full member. Probationary members must always be accompanied by a full member. To ensure that both our visitors, and our existing members have a good shoot, we alternate the club shoots between 'members only' and 'visitor shoots' and on the visitor shoots, we limit the number of visitors. More details on the Visitors page.
The club formed in 1975 initially, as an air gun section. As membership grew, a small bore section was started using the Key Glass rifle range. This progressed to Full Bore Shooting which is now through our association with The London Practical Shooting Club.
So you would have noted that Harlow Town Rifle & Pistol Club itself does not do rifle or pistol and nor is it based in Harlow. Otherwise it does what it says on the tin
