Welcome to the West Chester Gun Club

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 Sunday’s on our 4 lighted trap fields. 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.

If you have not taken an Introduction to Trapshooting Lesson or completed a Safety Check, you will need to do so.  Safety Checks are offered Sundays at 11:00 AM and 1:00 PM or anytime with a sponsoring member.

Our friendly members welcome all members and guest for a day of fun clay breaking and camaraderie.
