The Meade Rifle and Pistol Club exists to provide recreation shooting opportunities for Department of Defense civilian and military personnel in the Fort Meade, MD area. To achieve this end, the club has a number of different shooting programs. These programs range from a Junior division – providing organized shooting opportunities for youth – to informal rifle and pistol events designed to develop marksmanship skills; other programs stress the practical uses of rifles and pistols.
Our club has been in operation for 50 years and we have approximately 350 members from the Fort Meade area. We operate on what used to be the military ranges located southeast of Fort Meade, across Maryland Route 32. These ranges are currently owned by the U.S. Department of the Interior’s Fish and Wildlife Service.
