Welcome

Welcome to the Central Florida Rifle & Pistol Club!  Located in southeast Orange County near Moss Park and Lake Nona, our facilities include 25 and 50 meter pistol ranges; 100 and 300 meter rifle ranges; shotgun and archery ranges; and 10 action range bays.  The 300 meter range has target pits with risers.  Use the links in the main menu to learn more About CFRPC.

Visiting the Range

General range use is for members and their guests only.  For membership information, click here.

Visitors are welcome during open functions such as scheduled classes, competitions and events.  If you plan to visit the range, please familiarize yourself with the Club Policies and Range Rules.

All visitors to the range must complete a Release Form.  For your convenience, you may complete and print the form to bring with you.  Please make sure the form is signed and dated on the day of your visit.

Any minors coming to the range must have a Minor Release and Parental Consent Form signed by their parent or legal guardian.  It cannot be signed by an uncle or cousin or other adult friend of the family; it must be signed by the minor's parent or legal guardian.  For convenience, the Minor Release and Parental Consent Form may be completed and printed for the minor to bring with to the Club, SO LONG AS IT IS PRINTED ON TWO SIDES OF THE SAME PIECE OF PAPER.  Please make sure the form is signed and dated on the day of the minor's visit.

RANGES CLOSED Dec. 16-19 for Driveway Rebuild

Starting on Tuesday of this week (December 16) through Friday (December 19) we will be rebuilding the driveway into the Club, from the entrance at Wewahootee Road all the way round the corner, past the front ranges to the new sheds, and down the side of the 300 meter Range.  There will be a dozer, a grader, a roller, numerous workers, and a hundred or more truckloads of road fill occupying the driveways.

We can see no safe way to allow members to gain access to the Club while this work is being performed.  In accord with Article 8 Paragraph G of the Bylaws (which states in part "The Range Officer shall have authority to close any range or Club facility during the performance of required maintenance") the Executive Committee has resolved that the Club will closed to all other activities from dawn on December 16 through sunset on December 19.

We are confident that you will appreciate the value, indeed the necessity of this effort.  We thank you for your patience through the closure.

SPPteam2014

JacksonVaseyCFRPC SPP (Scholastic Pistol Program) Jr Rimfire Teams, Blue and Orange, travelled to the Tallahassee area (Midway, FL) Saturday November 15th, 2014 to compete in their first SPP sanctioned match of the year.  Team Blue--Reed Carter, Dylan Johnson, Zac Briggs and Jackson Vasey--had a combined score of 256.33 for First Place in Jr Rimfire division (also Best Overall time for the entire Match).  Team Orange--Davis Lake, Mitchell Henderson, and Kevin Rice--had a combined time of 381 (+120 seconds for missing 4th teammate), good for Second Place in Jr Rimfire division.

There were 10 SPP Teams from the State of Florida, including college teams from Florida State University, which makes the Top Overall score from CFRPC Team Blue that more impressive!!!!

Dylan Johnson was the “TOP SHOT” from the CFRPC SPP Teams with an individual score of 57.92, nudging out CFRPC SPP Team Captain Reed Carter with a score of 59.41.

Congratulations to the CFRPC SPP Team for an outstanding first match of the year, they represented CFRPC well!!!!!!  July 16th - 18th, 2015 CFRPC will be traveling to Sparta, Illinois for the SPP National Championships and are on track to place well in the Jr Rimfire Division based on scores from last years winners.

Congratulations to CFRPC's Newest Distinguished Rifleman, Scott E. Russell!

Congratulations to CFRPC's newest Distinguished Rifleman, Scott E. Russell!

Scott fired a 475-9x to leg out at the Palmetto State Marksman's Association's EIC Match held on October 26, 2014.  He placed 2nd in the field of 38 non-Distinguished competitors, and had the high score on the 200RF and 600SF stages.  Scott was also one of 36 competitors in the South Carolina State High Power Championship on October 25.  His score of 763-9x was a tie; but in the end 3rd overall and 3rd Master Class went to the highest 600SF, our own Scott Russell with a 191-4x.

Those of you who know Scott are aware of the dedication and hard work, not to mention talent and discipline that he brings to the sport and his service to High Power at CFRPC.  Congratulations!


About the Distinguished Rifleman Badge

The Distinguished Rifleman Badge is perhaps the most prestigious award in the High Power Rifle Shooting sport. The program was administered for many years by the Office of the Director of Civilian Marksmanship (DCM), a branch of the US Army, and is now administered by its successor, the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP). Military or civilian personnel can earn points toward "becoming Distinguished" only by competing in "Excellence in Competition"(E.I.C.) matches in conjunction with State or Regional Championships or the National Matches.

Points are awarded to the top 10% of Non-distinguished shooters. A 1st place finish can be a 6, 8 or 10 point "Leg" in a journey of many steps to become distinguished, thus the term "Leg Match". The number of points awarded is determined by the number of competitors, with 36 competitors being the minimum to have a 10 point leg. Awards of 8 and 6 points are awarded in smaller matches. A shooter must earn a minimum of 30 points to earn the Distinguished Rifleman’s Badge, but there’s a catch, the shooter must have at least one 8 or 10 point leg and cannot earn the award with 6 point wins alone.

The Range is OPEN!

Many, many thanks are extended to Butch Starnes and his crew, who made repairs to the road and otherwise made it possible to re-open. Some pictures of the repaired road are below.

Thank you all for your patience during this brief closure! Some areas of the range have dried out fairly well, and are now useable. Some areas were severely damaged while they were wet, and remain damaged. Some areas are still wet.

We have to continue to protect the damaged and wet areas, but we can use the dried and undamaged areas. We have taped off the parts we do not think can be used yet. When you arrive at the range you will immediately see areas we have cordoned off. You are welcome to walk into those areas, but PLEASE DO NOT TAKE ANY VEHICLE INTO ANY AREA WE HAVE TAPED. You may notice some gaps in the tape; those have been left to allow easy access for foot traffic. They are not there to allow you to drive into the taped-off area. The fact that you may be able to squeeze your vehicle through a gap does not mean you are allowed to do so.

The ranges have mostly dried fairly well, and you can shoot on all of the ranges for which you are qualified.  The ban on vehicles on any range that was in place before we closed down is still in effect.
