Welcome to the Delaware State Pistol Club

Featured

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.

DSPC & Covid-19

DSPC for now is open.

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.

Stay healthy and well. Be safe.

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.
