centerfire1The Centrefire Rifle section of the CRGC enjoys shooting on two separate rifle ranges at distances of up to 200m and 600 yards. Both ranges have covered firing points and are closed in on three sides, have warm-up rooms and wood stoves. There are over 10 benches on each range. On both ranges there are or will be, electrical outlets beside every bench for shooters to plug in electric heaters for those hardy people who like shooting in the winter..

On the 200m and 600yd ranges there are many different competitions being held through-out the year. Shooters that want to try competition in different forms can take part in monthly competitions at the Club or join the Vancouver Island Shooting League which holds regular competitions at a number of clubs around the Island. See the events page for dates.

DCRA shooters may also be seen on the range and a number of our shooters regularly take part in the Military style, long range shooting.
