Special Notices


  • BOARD MEETING CANCELLED. The Board meeting scheduled for January 16, 2020 is cancelled. 
  • RSO CLASS. The next Range Safety Officer (RSO) course will take place on Sunday, January 26th from 9 am to 5 pm at Crystal Lakes (300 Tami Road, Red Feather Lakes CO 80545). We specifically chose this location as not all of our members live close to the range. RSOs play a critical role at our Club and they are present at all our sanctioned events. Participants will learn about roles and responsibilities; Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs); range inspection and range rules; range safety briefing; emergency procedures; firearm stoppages and malfunctions; and test and review all for the low price of $30 which includes all course materials and pastries for breakfast and sandwiches for lunch (the course normally costs $100 - $150). The only expectation for attending this course is that you assist at one or more of our sanctioned events and help educate other members on the safety risks associated with the discharge of firearms. If you are interested in attending, please email membership@ncrgc.org and we will send you an invoice that must be paid prior to attendance. 
  • RIFLE RANGE CLOSED FOR NRL22 MATCHES. The Rifle Range is closed on the 4th Saturday of every month from sunrise to around 2 pm for the sanctioned NRL22 matches. You are welcome to participate in these matches; however you are not allowed to use the Rifle Range for normal shooting until the match concludes that day.
  • KNOW YOUR LOADS. Please do not shoot the steel lane markers on the Rifle Range in lanes 1-10 if your firearm has a muzzle velocity of 3,000 fps or greater. Please shoot only the paper targets in these lanes to avoid damaging the steel. 
  • EVENT REMINDER. Always call 970-282-1648 on the morning of your event to make sure it is still on, especially in the winter when the weather is unpredictable.

Welcome to the Northern Colorado Rod & Gun Club (NCRGC)


We are a private gun club with several public shooting events. We promote the shooting sports and safe gun handling for the entire family. The Club was founded in 1948 through the merger of four sportsmen groups: Fort Collins, Loveland, Greeley and Estes Park. The Club moved to its current location in 1970 on Owl Canyon Road off US 287 on the Weaver Ranch north of Fort Collins, Colorado. The objectives of the Club include:  

  1. The encouragement of organized rifle, pistol, and shotgun shooting among residents of the County of Larimer and nearby locations, with a view towards a better knowledge on the part of such persons of the safe handling and proper care of firearms, as well as improved marksmanship.
  2. The encouragement of hunting and fishing and related activities and to further the development of those characteristics of honesty, fellowship and good sportsmanship among its members and the public in general.
  3. The promotion and support of conservation programs and wise management of wildlife.
  4. To foster understanding by the general public, and especially its non-hunting members, of the need for game management through regulated hunting, and to build a greater rapport between sportsmen and landowners on whose lands we would like to fish and hunt.
  5. The promotion of the highest degree of sportsmanship and good fellowship among the membership of the Club, and the prevention of unsportsmanlike conduct.
