The Council Bluffs Rifle & Pistol Club, Inc. is a non-profit Iowa corporation founded in 1965 by a group of shooting enthusiasts realizing that a group effort would provide greater opportunities to improve their knowledge of and skill with firearms than could be accomplished individually.
After a ten-year period of growth in membership and the accompanying increase in financial capabilities, the decision was made to purchase land for a range site instead of continuing to rent facilities. As a result twenty acres of land north of Council Bluffs off Road L-34 was purchased for development.
A twenty point covered concrete bench firing line was constructed with fixed 100 and 200 yard target frames as well as portable target frames to provide flexibility for shorter distances.
Today, in addition to providing open shooting hours to our members and their guests, the club provides a varied match schedule which provides an opportunity for firearm enthusiasts to shoot competitively with those of similar interests.
Our Mission is the encouragement and betterment of the organized shooting sports among the citizens of the United States, resident in our community and the surrounding area, with a view toward a better knowledge on the part of such citizens of the safe handling and proper care of firearms as well as improved marksmanship.
