Welcome to the Beloit Rifle Club Inc.

Posted on January 10, 2018

We are reopening the range.

Please be advised that if you choose to go on to the property you are ENTERING AT YOUR OWN RISK. The snow fall has created a decent base on the ice but with the warm weather tomorrow and possible rain it will most likely result in being ice covered again. The problem lies with the thick base layer of ice.

Please only access the main gate (Gate B)- Black Powder / Pistol gate (Gate A’s) drive is in worse shape and it is hard enough to get the salt to take care of the ground around Gate B.

Also, none of the out door ranges are plowed or shoveled and have the base of ice. If you choose to use an outdoor range please be aware. If you choose to go to the back ranges, they are not plowed nor are the ranges shoveled. If you have an accident and need an ambulance they will not be able to get back to you.

Please be safe.
Julie Wagoner, President

 

 

Welcome to the Beloit Rifle Club website.

Charted in 1925 and affiliating with the National Rifle Association in 1927, the Beloit Rifle Club currently occupies 62 acres of land on Philhower Road just north of Beloit.  This facility has become one of the finest in the Midwest featuring indoor and outdoor shooting and archery ranges.  Our membership of nearly 1100 travels from as far away as Chicago.

Our main goal – promoting a safe shooting environment for the following disciplines: Trap, Black Powder, Black Powder Cartridge, Pistol, Silhouette, Archery, High Power Rifle, .22 Cal Benchrest, Centerfire Benchrest, Cowboy Action, Civilian Marksmanship and Defense Pistol.

Our facilities have been used by the Rock County 4H Shooters, Boy Scouts, Young Marines, the Beloit Police Department, state policing organizations and Marine recruits.  Professor John Nickels of Beloit College brought his class to the range to learn about ballistics and to experience firing a pistol.  Safety education classes are also held.

Please note that outside of special events, use of the Beloit Rifle Club facilities is by membership or invitation only.
