The Club commenced on 09/12/1987 and was known as Penrith City Indoor Rifle Club.
The Club came into existence partly as a result of the "Unsworth" gun laws. The Club shot in commercial premises along with a number of other Clubs which eventually closed for a variety of reasons.
In early May 1990, the Club was granted approval to shoot at Hylands Road Small Bore Rifle Range by Holroyd Council and continues there to this day. The Club became an incorporated body on 13th August 1989 and changed the name to Western Sydney Rifle Club on the 18th February 1993.
With the changes to the gun laws, as proposed in 1996, the Club had to apply for registration and on 21st November 1997 the NSW Police Service granted the required approval (Approval number 405672497). In July 1997 WSRC affiliated with the NSW Shooting Association and over the years this has proved to be a wise choice and continues to the present.
