Range Construction Update (March 8/23)
We have a range inspection date! The CFO’s Range Inspector is coming up from Victoria to inspect our rebuilt 600 yd range, our Action Shooting ranges and our Pistol range. We have tried to rebuild the ranges to meet or exceed the government’s Range Construction Guidelines manual. Hopefully, we will pass the inspection and will receive our operating licenses by the May long weekend.(this date was told to us by the CFO Range Coordinator.)
The Dynamic Shooting ranges and the Pistol range backstops and side berms need rocks picked off them. Currently, there is 8″ of snow covering the slopes. As soon as the snow leaves we will be having work parties to pick rocks off the slopes.
We will need people to come out and pick rocks off the backstops and side berms.
Range Construction Update (December 9/22)
We have some PDF updates for each range area so far, you can find the updates on the News page here.
Watch this website and our Facebook page for dates & times on the rock picking
We are re-building our ranges based on the designs laid out in the RCMP Range Construction Guidelines manual, as instructed by the CFO’s Range Coordinator. Under these designs, we will not need any “Safety Areas” around our ranges.
We are modifying the ranges to meet the CFO’s requirements. Anyone who can donate equipment, operate equipment, or volunteer labour, please phone Greg or Dennis, ph #’s at the bottom of this page

The CRGC is one of Vancouver Island’s premiere gun clubs. Unlike many other clubs on the island, we are not a Fish and Game club and deal exclusively with gun ranges at our facilities. The CRGC has been a gun club for over 60 years, giving Campbell River area residents a safe place to shoot with coaching and competitions to enjoy. Our history is full of providing athletes for Provincial, National and International competitions with the support they need.
The CRGC is a shooting club where members can shoot rifles, pistols and shotguns at our 200m range and at our 600yd range. They can shoot Trap on Sunday afternoons at our 4 house Trap range, practice IPSC shooting in one of the 7 IPSC alleys or practice Pistol shooting at the 200m, 600yd, IPSC or 50m Pistol ranges.
Join us today and enjoy the shooting sports.
