Bayou Rifles Inc. – Houston, Texas

Bayou rifles, established in 1936, has long been a mecca for shooting sports serving the Greater Houston Area. After the end of World War II, the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) was set up by Congress and was instructed to make lands available to civilian organizations such as Bayou Rifles. The CMP was responsible for ensuring civilians were ready for the armed services. Bayou Rifles built the Addicks Range in approximately 1952 at the present location and the gun club works closely in conjunction with the Corp of Engineers (COE) to maintain this range location for its silhouette shooting sports.

Bayou Rifles is well known in Texas for its metallic silhouette program in the smallbore rifle, air rifle, and lever action rifle disciplines. Bayou Rifles is also well established in other shooting sports such as High Power Rifle and Bulls-Eye Pistol. New membership enrollment is done on a first come basis via email once a year. We welcome all new shooters to join our silhouette program!
