Our Mission

Zia Rifle and Pistol Club is a non-profit organization dedicated to the protection of the Second Amendment, the promotion of safe shooting and the support of wildlife conservation.

What is Zia Rifle and Pistol Club?

Zia Rifle and Pistol Club is a private firearms club that provides its members with access to one of New Mexico’s premiere shooting ranges and its firearms activities. Whether you’re looking for a place to shoot competitively with friendly company or simply a place that allows you to shoot at your convenience and leisure, Zia will meet the bill. In addition to providing responsible gun owners a fun and safe environment for shooters to enjoy, Zia Rifle and Pistol Club also creates a community of welcoming gun enthusiasts of all skill levels.

Notice of Special Meeting:

A Special meeting will be held concurrent with the January Annual Meeting to consider changes to the Zia R&P By-Laws (details are in the newsletter and here.)

Location and estimated start: Glory Christian Fellowship Church, 2421 Wyoming NE, Thursday, January 18, 2024, 7:00PM.

Guidebook Change

The Board of Directors has issued a change to the Member GuideBook. This change adds clarifying language (p. 6) which explains that “Cased” weapons are treated the same as “Uncased” weapons for the purpose of firearms handling on Zia Ranges. As such, there are to be no weapons handling permitted on Zia except during periods of “Hot” range activity except for formal and informal matches per By-Laws Article VIII, Sect. 2 & 3. Please read this change carefully and make every effort to abide by this long-standing but sometimes misunderstood safety rule.

Women’s Only Class

Zia sponsors a women’s only pistol and personal protection class twice a year. Currently that class is held each April and October. For further information, email LadiesClass@ziarifleandpistolclub.com
