Welcome to the PPC!
Pima Pistol Club is an outdoor pistol & rifle complex located in the foothills of the Santa Catalina Mountains just northwest of Tucson, Arizona. We feature both public and private ranges for visitors and members.
We are one of the oldest continuously operating ranges in the United States. For over 100 years, we have served the community, match competitors, law enforcement and the military from our range facilities.
Organized in 1916 and incorporated in 1920, our original range was near Starr Pass and it stood there for decades. In 1967, Pima Pistol Club ventured out to stand alone near the border of what is now Oro Valley & Catalina - just northwest of the city.
PPC members include everyone from casual enthusiasts, to first responders, to Olympians and National & World Champions.
Our mission today carries with it the ideals of our past - to serve our community, to preserve tradition, and to remain connected to the legacy of Arizona, America, and the American Southwest.

It is the range users responsibility to bring water/sports drink/ hydration to the range.
The range has water for anyone that asks but, it is not the responsibility of PPC or Range Officers to hand it out. Match shooters should bring their own hydration when they will be competing for several hours.
The match fees are for the match, not to provide refreshments. Competitors bring their firearm, ammunition and other equipment to compete. They should also bring a means of staying hydrated.
