The British Pistol Club (BPC) was founded in 1957, for the encouragement of international Pistol Shooting, and is the oldest and largest shooting club exclusive to pistol in Great Britain. It was established to support the best pistol shooters in the country and does not operate as a traditional target shooting Club. There is no Clubhouse or range, rather the BPC is based at the NSRA’s Lord Roberts Centre where it runs monthly shoulder-to-shoulder competitions that are open to all and are intended to be welcoming for new pistol shooters as well as experienced competitors.
The monthly competitions (and the January Championship and June Open) sit alongside the other work that the BPC does to support pistol shooting in the UK, such as publishing the comprehensive BPC Pistol Shooting Calendar (with details of pistol events throughout the year), supporting the British Shooting Schools Pistol Championships, taking teams of Members to minor internationals, and much more.
