Incorporated on May 21, 1959, Metacon Gun Club is a premier shooting facility located on Nod Road in the Weatogue section of Simsbury, CT. With a highly engaged membership, the club offers a variety of activities to cater to the interests of today’s active enthusiasts. We also have several archery targets for member use.

New shooters especially appreciate the opportunity to learn new skills from Metacon’s experienced and friendly instructors. You will find Certified Training Counselors, Instructors and Coaches who are available to meet your needs. Best of all Metacon enjoys a diversified membership with all ages, genders and backgrounds represented.

To find out more about becoming a member of Metacon, we invite you to attend one of our regular monthly meetings (every third Tuesday at 7:30PM) at the club house where you can fill out an application form and meet some of our members.

Metacon Gun Club is an official recruiter for the NRA.
