Welcome to Asheville Rifle and Pistol Club


The Asheville Rifle and Pistol Club was formed in 1947, chartered as a non-profit corporation with the intended purposes of encouraging organized shooting activities and responsible firearm ownership here in Asheville and Western North Carolina.

We do so by hosting a variety of shooting-sport events, which are great ways to improve marksmanship skills, promote sportsmanship, and demonstrate and encourage the proper and safe use and care of firearms, and are great fun for the entire family. We welcome your interest in our club, and encourage you to find out more about becoming a member.

** Shooting at our Range is limited to Members and Guest of Members. Competitor guests at open shooting matches are the guests of the club and must have demonstrated past experience in safe shooting in order to participate.  Such would include an active NRA classification, personal vouching by a club member, certification of range safety officer training, certification of firearm instructor, etc.  Permission to allow a competitor guest to shoot is the responsibility of the event organizers and attending range safety officers and their decision is final.**
