The King's College London Rifle & Pistol Club
The Rifle and Pistol Club has a history that goes back to the nineteenth century, with records of elements of what now forms Kings (Guys particularly) having shot competitively in the very earliest days of the NRA. As a club, we believe we moved into the current range in the mid-1920s, and for a time in the early 2000s housed Reggie the Lion before his refurbishment.
Set in what used to be the Aldwych Tube Station tunnels, our firing range allows for single person prone shooting with .22 calibre target rifles. Bolt action and semi-automatic may be available upon request. The set up ensures one-to-one coaching with one of our Range Officers every time you visit.
Sessions take place depending on Range Officer availability but are generally run on 3 - 4 days of the week, and are run as half hour individual sessions. These are posted as a sign up at the start of each week on the facebook page.
We cater to all levels of experience - our members include absolute beginners to national competitors - all are welcome to join! For those who wish to shoot competitively, we send a team every year to BUCS.
As well as our own Range shooting we run trips for full bore, shotgun and clay pigeon shooting, with annual visits to Bisley. Socials planned include paintballing and laser tag as well as the traditional curry nights out.
Joining Instructions: To join (and be able to shoot) please fill in the membership form which can be found under the files tab of the facebook group, and bring that, along with proof of payment from the KCLSU and 2 passport photos, down to the range.
Directions to the Range can be found on our Facebook page.
