The West Chester Gun Club and Athletic Association is a shotgun sporting club located in the heart of Chester County, PA outside of West Chester, PA and just south of Exton, PA. We are one of the oldest clubs in the state with our incorporation date of April 1898.
We offer trapshooting every Tuesday afternoon and every Sunday on our 4 lighted trap fields. In addition, trapshooting lessons and additional trapshooting times are offered on some Saturdays. Guests, visitors, general public shooters, and new Club members must complete a SAFETY CHECK offered on Sundays at Noon before being permitted to shoot at the Club. For the safety of all shooters, any individual who has not taken a Club Trapshooting Lesson or completed a Safety Check is not permitted on the trap fields.
Trap lessons are available on many Saturdays. Visit the clubhouse to sign up and pay in advance to reserve a date. Safety Checks are ongoing every Sunday at Noon for experienced shooters familiar with competitive clay sport target shooting supplying their own ammunition (except when club special events are scheduled.) A Safety Check is not a lesson. Prior to taking a Safety Check, the shooter must be familiar with the rules, etiquette and gun handling requirements for trapshooting.
West Chester Gun Club is open to the public for general practice and registered shoots. Registered ATA shoots are held on the first Sunday between March and October.
