ABOUT US

 

The Club consists of about 325 members and is open for members 7 days a week, 24 hours a day with proximity card access. Many of our members are certified Mass/NRA Firearms Instructors offering training for Mass Pistol Permits, FID cards and Boy Scout merit badges. We offer NRA certified instructor courses in pistol, rifle, shotgun, personal protection, home firearm safety and certified range safety officers. We have a Girl Scout troop is in residence and Boy Scouts who use our outdoor facilities for various activities. Wednesday evenings our junior group, ages 11 to 18, meet from 6:30 to 8:00pm. General member meetings are held on the first Tuesday of every month. All members are welcome and encouraged to attend! See calendar for dates.

In November 2002 The Weymouth Sportsmen’s Club, established in 1929, had its club house burned to the ground, by a fire of suspicious origin. Only the foundation remained. Early in 2003 we began to visit nearly every shooting facility in the area. Each of the clubs visited gave us more ideas for our new building. In late 2006 the “new” Weymouth Sportsmen’s Club reopened. Because of its close proximity to residents, we tried to make the building resemble a large house. We are really pleased with the results. Construction was done by the Ryder Development Corp. of Weymouth.

Beside the outside appearance our new building has little in common with the old structure. In the new building we have town water and sewage, four handicapped bathrooms and central heating and air conditioning. The premises are protected by a sprinkler system, monitored fire and security systems as well as surveillance cameras.

For a little club history see Twenty Fve Years a Building.

The club's new building has 2 levels. The front door is on the ground level and brings you into a ceramic tiled lobby/lounge area with a sofa and chairs and a color TV. Beyond the lounge is a large work room with a conference table, chairs, storage rooms, lockers, vending machine, coffee maker, gun cleaning facilities, dart board and another TV and stereo.
             
    Next to the lounge is the shooting range. The range includes six large shooting booths each with overhead lights, electric target carriers and steel in the walls between all stations. All shooting is done from the booths, targets may be brought back to shoot from distances of 15 to 50 feet. The range has its own heating system as well as a double exhaust system and includes a new armor plate back stop rated to handle all handguns (lead and Jacketed bullets) as well as rimfire rifles. The snail bullet recovery system leaves little or no backsplash.      
             
    The second floor is home to our new twenty yard indoor archery range. A high ceiling and many windows makes it light and bright for the eight shooting lanes. Also on the second floor is a large carpeted function/meeting hall with offices and storerooms. The upstairs is accessible by two stairways, one with a handicapped chair lift.
