Welcome to the Northern Colorado Rod & Gun Club

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, shotgun and archery 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.

Shooting Disciplines

Please come out and join us! All of our matches are open to the public (some require pre-registration and payment). Non-members attending a match can not use other ranges while at the match. Please call 970-282-1648 to check for cancellations or range closures due to weather and be sure to follow us on Facebook

Defensive Pistol

The Defensive Pistol discipline is dedicated to furthering the defensive shooting and gun handling skill of our match participants. We accomplish this by providing an informal and relaxed environment in which all match participants may seek the knowledge and advice of other individuals that have the same interest. 

First Shots

First Shots seminars are the perfect opportunity for members to invite new shooters to come to the range for some free safety instruction and supervised shooting. Invite your family, co-workers, neighbors, friends, relatives, and anyone who wants a safety refresher to a First Shots seminar. 


The National Rifle League 22 is dedicated to the growth and education of precision rifle shooting through a wide range of outdoors-related public interest activities. These activities are designed to develop marksmanship skills for those participating in the shooting sports, promote firearms and hunting safety, and to educate the general public about firearms.

PRO Series

The Precision Rimfire Outlaws Series is a .22LR tactical long range shooting series in Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Idaho, Colorado, and Wyoming. Shooters compete locally throughout the regular season (July – May). Then in June, shooters can represent their home club at the PRO Series Championship match. 

Rimfire Carnival

This safe, family friendly event is held in August of each year and it is open to the public. There are 20 stages including bowling pins, aliens, playing cards, pencils, ducks, murder hornets, Army men, zombies, billiards, and more. Each participant receives raffle tickets good for numerous prizes, including firearms! Lunch is provided.


The Shotgun discipline is dedicated to those who would like to refine their shotgun skills though the use of the NCRGC skeet and trap fields or the members manual throwing station. Our skeet and trap events are open to the public and generally held on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month. Please refer to the NCRGC calendar to view upcoming events.
