Rifle Range Open – September 20 2019

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!

Range is now a Rifle Range – August 25, 2019

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.

Range is now Open

Attention BRG&FA Membership

The Range is now open.

As you will see when you use the Range the 22 back stop still has to be re-assembled and for now all pistol shooters will need to go down range to shoot at the 250 berm area.

**Work on the pistol area will continue in late August or early September so remember that there is NO SHOOTING in the new pistol area until it is completed and inspected by the CFO.**

There are two piles of wood from the gong houses and other structures that were taken down to allow the berm reforming. DO NOT use them as targets!

Thank you for your patience. Enjoy the range.

No freestanding targets allowed on Range

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:

Thank you

Colette @ colettem(Replace this parenthesis with the @ sign)highspeedcrow.ca

  • No freestanding targets of any kind are allowed on the range
  • No “exploding targets” to be used on the Range
  • Eye and ear protection is mandatory
  • Watch your speed to and from the Range

Have our checked your PAL expiry date?

50 Meter Pistol Berm – May 8th, 2019

IMPORTANT NOTICE to the BRGFA Membership:

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
