The Cumberland Rifle and Pistol Club was chartered in 1936. We are an NRA affiliated club. Our 50′ indoor range and clubhouse is located on the Blackstrap Road in West Cumberland Maine. We shoot two position, (prone and offhand) on A-17 targets at 50 feet, ten bulls for record and one spotter bull.
Club Membership – $50.00
It is recommended that you become a member of the NRA, if you are not already as they are all that stands between you and the loss of your 2nd Amendment Rights.
Range Fees – $2.00 per visit
There are no guns or ammunition stored on the premises.
The Congress has most wisely provided for a national board for the promotion of rifle practice. Excellent results have already come from this law, but it does not go far enough. Our Regular Army is so small that in any great war we would have to trust mainly to volunteers, and in such event these volunteers should already know how to shoot; for if a soldier has the fighting edge, and ability to care for himself in the open, his efficiency on the line of battle is almost directly proportionate to excellence in marksmanship. We should establish shooting galleries in all the large public and military schools, should maintain national target ranges in different parts of the country, and should in every way encourage the formation of rifle clubs throughout all parts of the land.
