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.

Spartan Tactical Training
2023 at PPC
Spartan Tactical Training 2023 at Pima Pistol Club is in the books!
In partnership with Spartan Tactical Training Group from Chicago, PPC has successfully completed the most robust and comprehensive defensive training series in club history.
Over 6 days, ILETSB Master Firearms Instructor & DHS Distinguished Weapons Expert John Krupa III and a team of 5 STTG instructors conducted three separate GSA registered certification courses taught to AZPOST standards for over 50 men & women ranging from 19 years old to seniors - most of whom were PPC members.
Congratulations to PPC VP Dave Burton for shooting the fastest Up/Down drill in the rifle program, and to Cecil Rico for shooting the high qualification in the pistol program. Both Dave and Cecil were awarded additional Super Spartan certifications!
If you are interested in participating in these programs in the future, look for information on when we can get them back out to the club.
