Got the message from Ryan today that the berm reforming is complete on the Rifle Range. Yahoo 🙂
*Our Rifle range is now open from 9AM – 9PM to our membership 7 days a week.
*Remember that shotguns are to be used on the North side at the Clay Shooting area, not on the rifle range.
*The pistol range is still closed until we clear the rocks and establish a firing line. The CFO will then inspect it and the membership will be informed once that is complete.
*We will be asking for a couple of working groups to help us with clearing the rocks, etc for the pistol area so please check your emails for date and time. I will give advance notice. I’ll be out there myself to help.
Thank you all for your patience. A lot of work has been done so if you have not been at the range during the summer check it out!
The Range is now a Rifle Range. No shotguns are to be used on the rifle range.
The approved shotgun location is to the north where the clay station is located. This is permanent.
There is a single clay thrower there which you can use. If you are unsure how to use the single thrower ask one of our members to assist you.
Handguns are from the rifle backstop. You can shoot from within 50 meters of the 250 berm.
The new pistol area is off limits until we complete the new pistol area and it is approved by the CFO.
There is still work being done on the range to have all of the berm work finished so we ask for your continued patience.

There was a roundtable discussion regarding Bill C 71 held July 17th between stakeholders and members of the Conservative Party of Canada and it was very successful. There was a lot of great discussion and some great action points.
The minutes from the meeting as well as a letter of support from St. Malo and District Wildlife Association has been posted here:
Please note as of today’s date – June 26, 2019 there are no “freestanding targets” permitted on the range.
You are permitted to build your own targets but they must
be placed at the base of the 250 berm area. This is the area furthest down-range.
Targets with gongs must be shrouded and therefore are not
permitted on the range. Examples of this include resetting targets and rifle
gong stands typically purchased from Cabela’s. We are not approved for these.
Contact us if you need clarification about your targets.
The use of “exploding targets” is also not approved for the Range.
The Chief Firearms Officer inspected the Range recently and
these changes are a result of this meeting. Currently our Range Master and
President are working with the CFO to get our Pistol area constructed. You will
be advised once it is complete.
We apologize for any inconvenience.
Please contact David if you have any questions or concerns:

No freestanding targets of any kind are allowed
on the range
The pistol berm located at the 50 meters from the firing line is not approved at this time for any firearms activities. Please do not use the 50 meter pistol berm until further notice from BRGFA. This is as of today’s date – May 8th, 2019. Membership will be contacted when the situation is resolved.
*Our range license does permit users to walk to within 50 meters of the 250 berm and shoot pistol there.*
There is no shrouded gong at the 250 berm so bring your paper targets. Make sure to take them down after you are finished shooting.
No vehicles can be driven on the range.
All shooters must
ensure to establish a firing line at all times when using the range.
Thank you for your cooperation
