Western Michigan Rifle & Pistol Club (WMR&PC)

Welcome to the Western Michigan Rifle and Pistol Club!  We are a multipurpose sportsman’s club that has long served the Ionia, Saranac, Belding and surrounding areas of Michigan, drawing members from as far away as Grand Rapids and Lansing.  Founded in 1949, the club occupies 62 acres of varied terrain west of Ionia, Michigan.  It is supported by a diverse group of hunters and sport shooters who have been attracted by its convenient location, variety of facilities and the friendliness of its members.  The shooting sports are something the whole family can enjoy together.  Come join us and find out for yourself!

    • Thank you to everyone who participated in our Spring Banquet on 22 April 2017, either by attending or generously offering raffle donations. The event was a huge success.
    • With the weather clearing up, it is time to begin our Summer Trap League, starting Monday, May 8, at 6:30 pm. There is a $4 participation fee per session, which helps maintain equipment and covers the cost for clays. Remember shotshell loads are limited to 7 1/2, 8 or 9 with a maximum 1200 fps for 16 yards and 1300 fps for handicap.
    • The WMR&PC has decided to move the annual Fall Raffle from November to 22 July 2017 this year. Once again, we are working with Not Just Guns in Mason, with prizes being cash and gift certificates. Tickets are available NOW, either through Board Members or the Not Just Guns website. Contact information is available on the Club's website ( http://www.wmrpc.com/home/contact-us )
    • On a more serious note, over the weekend, someone used one of the trap houses as a target stand, causing damage to the structure. Last summer, one of our members spent countless hours cleaning up the paths around the trap houses and painting them. That damage is an irresponsible act and an insult to someone else's hard work. There is plenty of flat ground in the pistol lanes to set up alternate targets.
  • Club service announcement:  In Spring 2016 the 10 yard pistol range wooden backstops were destroyed by people shooting shotgun at them (Turkey loads and buckshot).  If you need to pattern your shotgun at close range, please do so on your own personal targets and not on the club targets.  Thank you!
