Kootenai Valley Rifle and Pistol Club season starting

September 14, 2021

The Kootenai Valley Rifle and Pistol Club (KVRPC) is dedicated to the sport of small bore shooting and invites other interested people to join them. Competitive shooting is a sport of precision. KVRPC practices indoors with .22 caliber rifles and pistols shooting at a distance of 50 feet.

Rifle shooters aim for a ten ring not much bigger than the period at the end of this sentence. Pistol shooters at a ring about the size of a dime.

Senior rifle shooters, age 21 on up, use a scoped rifle and shoot from prone, sitting, kneeling and standing positions while junior shooters, age 12 to 20, learn Olympic style three position shooting with peep sights.

The teams compete from their home range on Highway 2, and also travel to Sandpoint, Coeur d’Alene, Spokane, Davenport, Washington, and Missoula, Montana.

Smallbore shooting is an NCAA sport, thus college scholarships are available, and if you inspire to compete in the Olympics, it can all start here.

The pistol team meets on Tuesdays starting October 5, the senior rifle team on Wednesdays starting October 6 and the junior rifle team on Thursdays beginning September 30, all at 6:30 p.m.

If you would like to learn more about these sports, stop by the range located on Highway 2 three miles east of Three Mile Junction and see what it is all about! Men, women, boys and girls are welcome.

And for those who have shot in the past and have put that equipment away, dust it off and come join us! KVRPC welcomes you back to make some more fond memories. Shooting, a sport for a lifetime.
