September 24, 2023 Help!! We desperately need ROCK PICKERS. We have to get the exposed rocks off the backstops and sideberms. The sooner we get the rocks picked the sooner we can get open. If you are available to pick rocks during the week days, please email Don Sunquist – [email protected]
Range Construction Update (July 17/23)
It turns out that the CFO’s Range Inspectors that came up on March 21st forgot to calibrate their measuring tools. The CFO’s Range Coordinator came out to our ranges in the beginning of July and redid the measurements. She said we would have the inspection report sometime in August and would probably be using the ranges this fall. She did give us a verbal summary of deficiencies that we have to fix instead of having to wait for the inspection report. Some side berms and backstops have slumped and need to be repaired. We need to build a visibility restricting overhead baffle and an overhead bullet stop baffle at the 600 yd firing line. Work on this has commenced.
As always we need more help. The core group of volunteers is getting burnt out. Please contact Don Sundquist at [email protected] if you can lend a hand.
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.
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.
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.
