Bedford Rifle Club has been in existence since 1929, initially known as Bedford Miniature Rifle Club. In 1940 the club changed its name to Bedford Rifle Club.

As one of the premier small-bore target rifle shooting clubs in Great Britain, we would like to extend an invitation to:
          Newcomers to target shooting who have never shot before, but would like to experience the sport.
          Those who have tried target shooting previously and would like to take it up again.
          Experienced target shooters who would like to use Bedford Rifle Club’s facilities.

Bedford Rifle Club is a large, active and successful club. For the newcomer, club equipment and instruction is available. The clubhouse is large and comfortable, with welfare facilities including a licensed bar.
