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.
