The Clairton Sportsmen club rifle discipline is a very active and varied facet of our club. The outdoor covered range has 10 firing benches with targets at 50, 100 and 187 yards. This range offers a great place to sight in rifles, muzzle loaders, pistols, and shotguns (slugs ONLY please).
The rifle range is open to all members and their guest year round from 9:00 A.M. till dusk. The range allows the use of paper targets only. Metallic swinging targets is permitted but for .22 rim-fire only. (See Rifle Range Safety Rules for details).
Please read the General Club Rules and the Basic Range Safety Rules prior to use.
Note: The use of any rifle in center-fire caliber .50 BMG is prohibited on any range.
From the benches we host .22 rim-fire silhouette matches, a cast bullet program and special holiday shoots. Note: During scheduled matches the benches are closed to off hours shooting, however the use of the Upper Rifle/Pistol range is permitted.
The 200 and 300 yard Competition Range is located to the left (East) of the covered range. The Competition range offers 10 firing points has target carriers and is open only under the direct supervision of a director or designated range officer. CSC is affiliated with the Civilian Marksmanship Program, the NRA and the PA State Rifle and Pistol Association. NRA high power league matches, Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) matches and various other rifle matches are held beginning in the spring thru the early fall. Please check the rifle schedule for the dates and additional information. Also note that when the competition range is in use the walk through muzzleloader range is closed for safety.
A walk through muzzleloader range is located in the woods to the far left of the covered range and offers a unique shooting experience. Black powder / lead round ball or .22 LR only. Black powder shoots are held the fourth Sunday of each month throughout the year. Please see the muzzleloader section for additional information and firearm restrictions.
During the winter months (Jan. through March) the Indoor Rifle/Archery range offers indoor target shooting on Thursday evening’s beginning at 7:00P.M. This is a great program to learn basic firearm safety, proper techniques for competitive shooting or improve your shooting skills and have some fun. The program is geared more toward juniors (starting age is 10 years old) who will be given first priority but adults are welcome as well, the adults will shoot after the juniors.
