Due to ongoing Covid-19 concerns,
The shotgun range is now open, but to AFGC members only until further notice. The rifle range and river trail will remain open to to the public as we continue to monitor the situation and expected adherence by all users in maintaining safe social distancing while using the facilities.
Approximately 1,000 meters downstream from the AFGC location, a large single log across the river poses a significant safety hazard to tubers and river users. Please be aware of this hazard and exercise extreme caution when approaching it.
Thanks for your understanding and ensuring the safety of yourself and others,
BR-50 Rimfire Bench Rest Matches
Open to the Public, Spectators Welcome!
We are sanctioned to hold officially recognized BR-50 Canada matches.
The club will be holding several 22 Rimfire Benchrest matches in 2020, the second Saturday of every month from 9am until noon.
Matches are 25 shots in 20 minutes from the bench at 50 yards,
4 targets for a total of 100 scoring shots,
totaling a (im)possible score of 10,000 points.
The cost to shoot is $3.75 per target for adults and half price to junior shooters under the age of 18.
The BR-50 rules are very open, essentially shoot what you bring.
This includes any old Marlin tube fed bolt action to radical looking rail guns.
Scoring is unconventional in that the worst edge of the bullet is used, not the best edge as in nearly every other discipline. Worst edge scoring means the bullet hole must be entirely within the lines for that score, or you get the lower score.
Classes are designed to place competitors on an equal footing.
If you have never been to a rifle match you should come out and watch to see how much fun it can be!
We Will be working on annual trophies per rifle class as well as a Island Championship Match, Mission BC also hosts the Provincial match as well as the Bob Goering Memorial Match, after all Goering was the mastermind behind all of this and spent years promoting and pushing it on many ranges in western and eastern Canada.
