Samuel Colt

Our History

As one of the oldest gun clubs in America, The Hartford Gun Club enjoys a reputation as New england’s premier shooting sports organization. The Hartford Gun Club is the home of the Hartford Rifle Club (founded in 1864) and is the descendant of Samuel Colt’s Hammerless Pistol Club. What began as a simple, single-venue club has evolved into a well-established leader in the world of Trap, Skeet, Five-Stand, FITASC, pistol and rifle sports.

President's Message

I have enjoyed being a member of the Hartford Gun Club since 1978. The last several years I have been a member of the Board of Governors, Vice President for three years as well as Director of Membership and Marketing which, I will continue to manage. I also represent the 5-Stand and related sports in that area. I enjoy all the shooting sports to include hand gun and Rifle as well.

We are fortunate that our club membership is very healthy – our programs for maintenance and upgrades have been very successful and are on track going forward to continue in a positive direction. I am honored to be your President and will always serve to safeguard and protect the legacy of the Hartford Gun Club. Please let us know how we can better serve you with any comments or suggestions.
