Welcome to NIRPC . . .

The Northern Illinois Rifle and Pistol Club (NIRPC) is a non-for-profit club that was formed 50 years ago. All funds are dispersed with Board approval. The club works with Boy Scouts as well as County and State organizations to assist them with their shooting programs. NIRPC is proud of its tradition of Community Service and Education. Club Membership is private and open to new members as openings become available. All members must belong to the National Rifle Association. We have a 300-member cap. Our members enjoy informal plinking and target shooting with some special competition events. The shooting facilities are open to Club members and invited guests on a daily basis.

Gun Raffle

Our gun raffle is in swing.
Tickets are 1 for $10 or 3 for $20. Tickets can be purchased at either of our gun shows (see below) or you can stop in one of our monthly meetings (check the section to the right to find our next meeting). They are generally the first Monday of the month.

The drawing will be held on September 27th at our Autumn gun show. This year we are raffling 2 packages. Each ticket enters you for both packages. The grand prize winner will get their choice of one of the two packages and the runner up will get the second package.
