Welcome to the Central Texas Rifle & Pistol Club


We are one of the largest members only, non-profit gun clubs in Texas!

Central Texas Rifle and Pistol Club was formed in 1946 as a non-profit organization to promote shooting sports in the Central Texas area. Our Club provides educational as well as a number of recreational and competitive rifle and pistol shooting sport opportunities.

The Club’s outdoor gun range complex for rifle and pistol shooting is located on a 42-acre site in the China Spring area which is a few miles northwest of Waco, Texas. For detailed driving directions to the range, take a look at the How to Find Us page.

CTRP is a membership only organization but Club sponsored rifle and pistol matches are open to the public. Attending some of these various scheduled matches are a great way to learn more about us and event times/dates are posted on our Calendar. If you’re interested in becoming a member, check out the Membership section for more information.
