About Rod & Gun Club

The Guthsville Rod & Gun Club is a shooting and fishing, club located in beautiful Orefield, Pennsylvania – just north of Allentown. The Club takes its name from the village a few miles northwest of the intersection of routes 309 and 22.

The earliest written records of club activity still in existence date from the mid-1940’s but some of our older members tell us that the club was operational years before. The Guthsville Club has state-of-the-art facilities including top-quality outdoor shooting ranges, an indoor shooting range (reserved for matches and organized practices), a trap range, and club meeting building.

The Facilities

Located on some forty plus acres with a 1 1/2 acre pond. Separated from our indoor range in its own building is our clubhouse. Restroom facilities are available to members throughout the day in the clubhouse. We have a live-in caretaker.

  • A Bullseye pistol 25 and 50-yard range that has a covered firing line.
  • A 25-yard range.
  • A plinking range.
  • 50 and 100-yard rifle ranges. The 100-yard range has a covered firing line.
  • A special purpose 35-yard.
  • An informal trap range with a commercial grade thrower.
  • A range reserved for Black Powder shooting.
  • A 50-foot range.
  • A basic archery range.

Shooting Sports

On these ranges, Guthsville hosts bullseye, Steel, IDPA matches and both Smallbore and CMP competition. Several three positions and prone only small-bore matches are held in our newly constructed, state of the art, twenty-five-yard indoor range.

Guthsville is proud of its public service range. This range is constructed primarily for police training. Guthsville has long provided its services to area police units and recently set aside a range specifically for that purpose.

IDPA Program

Small Bore Prone Rifle Winter League

The Guthsville small bore rifle winter league is a series of six (6) matches held monthly from October through March. The matches are held on the third Saturday of each month. In addition to the matches, weekly Thursday night practice sessions are held throughout the season. Please check the club calendar for exact dates and times.

The winter league matches and practice sessions are held in the indoor range. Matches are geared towards the experienced competitor. Junior shooters with prior competition experience are always welcome. For the inexperienced shooter who is interested in participating, it is recommended they attend some practice sessions. This provides the opportunity to become familiar with the match format.
