Swap Meet

Club members are welcome to come and check out the clubhouse on Sunday January 29, 2017 from 10 am to 3 pm. Coffee pot will be on. Swap your stuff for the other guy’s stuff.

Remember that all regulations regarding the transportation and the sale of firearms and ammunition will apply.

Tables available for members only. Limit is 2 tables.  Be prepared to help set up tables.

Ammo Restrictions for Indoor Range

There has been evidence of members using incorrect ammunition while shooting their centre fire handgun in the Indoor Range. Using the wrong ammunition will damage the target holders and backstop and poses an injury risk because of splashback.

This is a reminder that the Indoor Range is approved for centre fire handguns that meet the following criteria:

  • Target loads (non magnum loads)
  • LEAD bullets only.
  • No jacketed or semi-jacketed bullets.

Only  paper targets are permitted.

 

Busy Weekend Ahead

The TRAP range and the RIFLE range will both be busy this weekend with two scheduled events – a Registered Trap Shoot and the Yukon Rifle Silhouette Championships.  Refer to previous posts for event details.

In order to maintain a safe and controlled firing line the Bench Rest Rifle area will be unavailable during the day while these two events are happening.

Members wishing to use the bench rest rifle range area are welcome AFTER 4:30 pm when the trap and silhouette activities should be completed for the day.

 

 

 

Range Clean up Day

It’s that time of year, again. Spring clean up day is Sunday May 3, 2015 from 9:30 am to 2:30 pm. There will be a cease fire on the entire range during this time.

Dress for dirty work! Don’t forget to wear shoes suitable for working in the rough areas of the range. Bring your work gloves.

Jobs to be accomplished: pick up of paper and other debris from around the site,  empty garbage barrels, pick up discarded brass, clear brush around the target areas,  repair and paint targets, wash windows and other small jobs.
