About the Club
Although Pistol shooting is heavily regulated by WA Police Firearms and our associated Governing Shooting Associations the individual challenges within the various disciplines can provide great personal satisfaction with what can be achieved. The sport is open for any gender from 12yrs onwards and considered a lifetime sport with many competing at top level both State and National after retirement. Pistol shooting is a recognised Olympic (Rio 2016) and Commonwealth Games Sport (Gold Coast 2018). Cockburn - Fremantle Pistol Club (C.F.P.C.) is welcoming to new members and provides safety training, competition regulations and specific coaching. The club boasts comfortable facilities and is proud of the continual upgrades of the ranges to meet National competition standards.
The Cockburn - Fremantle Pistol Club was established in 1958 and has been located on Warton Road since 1980. The club is supported by the Department of Sport and Recreation and the City of Cockburn Council through approved grants for continued improvements. The club promotes a welcoming environment for members to enjoy the sport of Pistol shooting from club to elite level.
