Range Construction Update (Jan 3/23)
We are on the home stretch in getting our ranges open. The CFO’s Range Coordinator is going to be in contact with us around the middle of January to “firm up an inspection date”. We have been put off since the beginning of December for an inspection date.
A huge thanks to all the members who came out on the Sunday and Monday to pick rocks. Turnout was low but those that did show up did a great job. The rocks were frozen into the ground for the mornings so picking was slow. The Pistol Bays had a start but not completed.
The 600 had rocks picked from all the side berms and backstops. Basically it is finished. We took pictures of everything in anticipation of getting an inspection that week if it snowed (which it did) but the Range Coordinator put us off for a month and a half.
We will need people to come out and rake rocks off the backstops and side berms on the Pistol Bays.
Watch this website for dates 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 Co-ordinator. 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.
