The Delaware State Pistol Club offers many competitive and recreational shooting activities for the entire family from beginner to the expert marksman. The club has an indoor heated range with a club house, bathroom facilities and is conveniently located in New Castle, Delaware. Non-competitive shooting is available for recreation and for the sighting of firearms. At our indoor range we allow only firearms chambered for pistol calibers not to exceed 1500fps.
As of 11/19/2020, the BOD voted to Temporarily put in place the following steps for Associate members to obtain their key:
Attend board meeting to join.
Attend New Member orientation
Participate in 6 organized shooting activities, demonstrating safe gun handling. The organizer of the activity needs to be able to determine that the applicant is safe and understands safe gun handling.
Attend board/membership meeting for key vote.
The monthly BOD meetings will resume Thursday 6/18/2020 at 7PM.
The general membership meetings will resume Thursday 6/18/2020 at 8PM.
Per our President, “The wearing of masks is whatever the person attending is comfortable with.”
Action Pistol will RESUME on June 8th! We will need to implement some new changes due to everything going on, so be prepared to adapt to the upcoming changes and challenges that we’ll need to do in order to keep Action Pistol up and running again without interruption in this “new normal” that we’ll be dealing with. See the club calendar for more updates! Calendar will be updated soon!

On behalf of the Board, members, and guests using our club, if you are sick or not feeling well – STAY HOME. If you are a member who can bring guests, if either party is not feeling well please do not use the club. There will be plenty of time to shoot later.
If you are elderly, care for the elderly, or regularly visit the elderly – you are encouraged to stay out of the club.
Also be advised our regularly scheduled activities are run by VOLUNTEERS. (I want to thank them for their time and service to the club) Activities may be canceled at any time with or without notice. We will do our best to keep the calendar updated.

Delaware State Pistol Club would like to extend to this young man congratulations for achieving Distinguished Expert.
More information on the JR. Rifle program can be found here.
This award is presented to the member whose continual contributions to the Club’s programs exceed the standard. Presenting the award is Todd Morgan, DSPC President and Foster Rennie (Center). Dave Heckler (left) is the 15th member in over 50 years to receive this honor.
Dave has donated his skills and time for 20 years to the NRA Youth Program held at the Club on Saturday mornings. Dave moved the program here with Foster Rennie and George Alves when the DuPont Fish & Game closed. His coaching over the years has given many youths the ability to achieve NRA rifle marksmanship honors. Among Dave’s other contributions to the Club are the weekly grass cutting and the annual Christmas tree & decorations.
