Carshalton Rifle Club has its own indoor 6 lane 25 metre range, which is used intensively for a large number of target shooting disciplines. The range has controlled lighting and air conditioning, so that it is comfortable all year round. Targets can be shot at distances from 6 yards (for air pistol and rifle) up to 25 metres for live fire rifles and pistols. There is a turning target system, to accommodate gallery rifles and pistols in calibres from .22 up to .455.

The Club house is comfortable and is also fully accessible for disabled members. There is a lively lounge area where you can meet other members and discuss popular topics. There is also kitchen area for light refreshments and vending machines for drinks and snacks.  For those wanting to get hands on experience of firearms we have a "fumble zone" which is used by members wishing to fine tune equipment or handle guns away from the range. In the summer a secure covered patio is available and can be used for barbecues. We have a secure car park which is covered by an external CCTV system.

The reception desk / sales desk is continually manned by at least one of the club officers, who can keep an eye on everything that happens both on and off of the range via audio equipped CCTV.
