Archery is an up and coming discipline at the ARPC. Our archery range is a great place to have a fun filled day of target shooting or to get ready for hunting season. We have six “known distance” targets ranging from 20 to 70 yards.

Black Powder

Have you ever dreamed of returning to the thrilling days of the mountain men, or of sharing in the adventures of wilderness heroes? Many people are attempting to experience a part of those days through black powder or muzzleloader shooting.


Bullseye Pistol is a challenging but enjoyable sport. As the name implies, the object is to place your shot in the center “ten ring” of a bullseye target.

International Defensive Pistol Association (IDPA)

IDPA as a sport is quite simply the use of practical equipment including full-charge service ammunition to solve simulated “real world” self-defense scenarios. Shooters competing in IDPA events use practical handguns and holsters that are truly suitable for self-defense use.

Indoor Pistol

Indoor pistol is an introduction to the discipline of Bullseye Pistol shooting.  ARPC does not have an indoor range, so matches are shot at the Bullseye Range.


NRL22 (National Rifle League 22) is a popular precision rimfire competition that is one of the fastest growing disciplines in competitive shooting. Patterned after the Precision Rifle Series but shot with .22 rimfire rifles, attempting to hit small steel targets at distances of 100 yards (sometimes further!).
