Throughout the year the Mattabassett Rifle and Pistol Club sponsors numerous events and competition shoots. We invite members of the public to join us at these events. We guarantee you will have a great time and meet some great people.

 

If you are joining us for a competition shoot there is no need to feel intimidated, our shoots are for everyone from beginner to expert, no matter what your skill level you will have a great time. So, get  moving, dust off that old firearm you've been meaning to take out and shoot and come on down to the range.

 

Please note that shoots are usually held rain or shine, however, the Club reserves the right to cancel any shoot for any reason at any time.  Check the Club's Event Calendar for late breaking information about the shoots.

MRPC's Annual Turkey Shoots

                                   

The Mattabassett Rifle and Pistol Club's Annual Turkey Shoots run every Sunday from the second Sunday in October to the Sunday before Thanksgiving. Shoots start at 10:00 AM and conclude at 2:00 PM. The fee is $2.00 per round and prizes are Gift Certificate's to Stew Leonard's.

 

For those of you who have never been to or seen a Turkey Shoot, don't worry we don't really shoot at turkey's, the format works like this:  All shooter's are provided with one shotgun shell (12, 20 or .410 gauge) and are assigned one of the paper targets with a cross hair pattern on it.  After everyone has taken their shot the targets are collected and whoever has the closest bb hole to the center of the crosshairs is the winner.  You can take a look at a winning target by clicking here.

 

We have loaner shotguns available if you do not have your own.
