Pima Pistol Club is a member-owned shooting range, open to the public, located near Catalina, Arizona, just north of Tucson. We have facilities for rifle and pistol target shooting and host a variety of competitions including USPSA, IDPA, Steel Challenge, ICORE, 2-Gun Action Challenge, and NRA Action Pistol.
This is a cold range. All firearms brought onto the range must be unloaded. Clearing stations are available at the entrance.
The range is open every day of the year except Thanksgiving and Christmas. Please check the calendar for events that may occupy some of the range facilities.
Winter hours are now in effect:
- 7:30 am - 5:00 pm Every Day
During bad weather check with the range office for closures.
Pima Pistol is an NRA member club. Our facilities have been supported by grants from the NRA and from the Arizona Game and Fish Department.

YOUR VOTE IS NEEDED
Please come out and vote. Your vote is very important and a minimum of 10% of the regular members voting is required to make the election official. The bylaw changes have been mailed to all regular members and are posted on the bulletin boards.
Refreshment will be served.
Pima Pistol Club has openings for two part-time range safety officers. The hours vary and the applicant must be able to work on weekends when needed. A NRA Range Safety Officer certificate is required, if needed the club will provide the training. Basic computer skilss are helpful. Please contact John Kusma or Earl Shuman at 520-825-3603 for more information.
Now that the new IDPA rulebook is out and the hold on training new safety officers (SOs) is lifted, we have the opportunity to have area coordinator Bill Barron conduct a training class at Pima Pistol, if we have enough interested candidates. If you are one, please drop me a line at the email address below. Tell me something about your schedule, too—what days of the week you're available, anything else that would help us find a day that would work for most people.
"The new rule book is here! The new rule book is here!"
IDPA has just completed a major revision of its rule book. You can find it here on the IDPA website. I don't know, sorry to say, when printed copies will appear.
At any rate, the new rules go into effect October 1, and we'll be switching over just as fast as we can wrap our little heads around them. As usual, it's a mix. Some things are simpler and some are more complicated; some are better and some...well....
At any rate, if you're interested, I'm going to spend a little time here going over the changes as I see them.
Just a reminder that we have some email lists you might want to join. The Range Users lists carries announcements of interest to all PPC users, including special events, range closures, and so on. There are also competition-specific lists (USPSA, IDPA, etc.) for those who participate in our matches.
These lists are fairly low-traffic. You won't hear from us unless there's something important you need to know. And it goes without saying, we will not share your email address with anyone or use it for any other purpose without your permission.
To sign up for these lists, visit the Pima Pistol Club Mailing List Manager.
