The Junior Shooter program seeks to develop the competitive shooting skills of our youth members. We have been fortunate to help many youth members develop their passion for firearms and go on to compete at a high level. We also have a Lady’s Shooter program which helps teach self-defense, develop their skills, and have fun with other like-minded women.

The Program also offer competitive opportunities through USA Shooting which National Olympic Shooting Program.

The Rapid City Rifle Club has been operating for twenty years and are affiliated with the Civilian Marksmanship Program, National Rifle Association, SD Shooting Sport Association, US Shooting Sport Association and are a state non-profit corporation. We value our 2nd Amendment right to ‘keep and bear arms’ and are passionate about passing this on to the next generation of shooters. We feel that it is extremely important to preserve these values since they will follow in our footsteps and we want to keep shooting alive for future generations.

Our main public activities have been hosting local Gun Shows, facilitating a robust Youth Shooting program, and offering Adult Shooting opportunities.

The Rapid City Rifle Club and Junior Division is the non-profit 501c incorporation. The Rapid City Firearms (RCFA) is the part of our organization that runs the guns shows and then contributes all proceeds to the RC Rifle Club Inc. in order to support the shooting programs and build towards the goal of constructing our own marksmanship academy. If you are interested in making a cash donation or gift a firearm to the Rapid City Rifle Club, we are classified as a 501c and can produce a tax receipt.

Our Gun Shows are held to help fund club programs and activities such as the Junior Pellet and Junior .22 programs.  They also help us sponsor sending youth shooters to the Olympic Training Center in Colorado.  Each year the club puts on two Gun Shows, and provides security for a third.  We typically have between 120 to 150 vendors at each show.  The Gun Shows are held at the Rushmore Civic Center and we have been sponsoring them for the past 12 years.

The purpose of the club sponsorship is to promote a positive image of gun ownership and relevance of proper training to the use of firearms. We bring vendors and the public together in a show setting that allows for a connection to be formed to exchange products and knowledge in the hobby and interest that many people have.

The Gun Shows provide and opportunity for the local community to buy or sell firearms and/or firearm accessories. Accessories include things like ammo, gun accessories, war memorabilia, reloading equipment, hunting apparel, and more.  In addition, the Gun Shows provide members of the local community with the opportunity to meet and make connections with suppliers and others with similar interests.  We invite everyone to take part in the gun shows.  It is a great opportunity to see the variety of people who participate, it’s a great opportunity for family’s to spend time together and learn, connect with Veterans, and share stories with other hunters. The Gun Shows also offer an opportunity to learn more about self-defense.

Whether you are looking for a bargain, an opportunity to sell, or just a fun way to spend the afternoon be sure to stop by our next Gun Show.
