River City Rifle and Pistol Club










About the Club

The River City Rifle and Pistol Club (RCR&PC) was incorporated in 1968 in Mason City, Iowa as a non-profit organization to promote civilian marksmanship, proper gun safety, competitive spirit, conservation of natural resources, and to provide a safe and proper place to shoot.

The RCR&PC has members from a broad spectrum of occupations in our communities. Members include families, men, women, and youth who reside in several counties not limited to Winnebago, Mitchell, Cerro Gordo, Franklin, and Worth counties.


We shoot a wide variety of disciplines such as: 


                       * NRA High Power Rifle 


                        * Bullseye Pistol Shooting 


                        * Trap 


                        * Cowboy Action Shooting


                       * CMP Rimfire Sporter 


                       * Running Deer 


Plus many others. Many of our members also use the range for sighting-in their hunting rifles!

 The Future of River City Rifle and Pistol Club

The club house was moved from the old range and renovation started in the late summer of 2008. With the donation of a sliding door and three windows in 2008. Electrical rough for the club house was completed late 2009. 2011 sheet rock was hung. Electricity was run to both the 50 yard range firing line and the 100/200 yard firing line. A yard light at the entry gate and one at the main parking lot were erected. The cement slab under the four 100/200 yard benches was poured May of 2009. A new sign in/sign out structure was erected fall of 2009. Eight more benches and cover were completed in June of 2010. A well and water hydrant was dug and installed in July of 2011. Our membership has been growing by a minimum of 10% per year the past six years. We are going to add an additional Trap range this year.

In the next ten years River City Rifle and Pistol Club has proposed to build an education and indoor shooting sports facility on the northwest corner of the range. This facility would enable year round use of both rim-fire and center-fire handguns, smallbore rifles, and air rifles. Training, education, and competitions will be highly promoted at this new indoor shooting sports facility in addition to being used by the membership.


We are proud members of the following organizations:


National Rifle Association
Iowa Sate Rifle and Pistol Association
Civilian Marksmanship Program
