Lewistown Pistol Club, Inc.

Petersburg, Pennsylvania


The Lewistown Pistol Club has been promoting the shooting sports ever since its establishment in the early 1960?s by a handful of employees of the Lewistown Viscose seeking a place to shoot competitively. At that time the only handgun sport available was NRA Conventional Pistol (Bulls-eye). Little by little the club made improvements until; there was a 50 yard, 48 position outdoor range, with turning targets at the 25 yard line. The next project undertaken was a clubhouse with full kitchen facilities and a 50 foot, 12 position indoor range. Both projects were completed in 1976. After completion of the clubhouse, a roof was erected to cover all 48 firing positions on the outdoor range. This made shooting in inclement weather a lot more bearable. Although there have been numerous smaller projects over the years, two of our more recent improvements include, the erecting of a flag pole next to the outdoor range and automation of the indoor range target turning system. The indoor range improvement was made possible with a grant from the NRA awarded to the Lewistown Pistol Club by the local Mifflin County Chapter of the Friends of the NRA. The club has also expanded and added three large (25 yard x 25 yard) pits in which to safely conduct scenario drills. We welcome the membership and support of lawful and safety-minded shooters. Our location is mapped on the contact us page. Our calendar shows club match and event dates. For more information, contact our president.
