    I have 20 acres of land that I have set up a target range for plinking. If anyone is down, let me know! No more gophers on my land though... lol

    This spring the boys and I are shooting clays also. God I love living outside of the city.

    What is this IPSC Training that you guys are speaking of? (Work internet blocks my searches).

    Last question, I am looking to buy my first restricted firearm but I am finding out that nobody will let me purchase unless I buy a membership to a range (makes sense, but dumb at the same time IMO). Where do you restricted guys have memberships to? how much are they going for? (again, cant google from here)

    You cannot buy restricted firearms without a range membership because it's illegal to use anywhere else.

    I have membership at The Shooting Edge and I like it there a lot.

    They sell "associate" memberships for cheap, if your only goal is to meet the membership requirements to purchase a restricted gun. You will need to be a member somewhere though or you can't shoot it.

    Tomaz I'd be down for some plinking. Do you shoot on winter days? If so i'll pick up some resetable targets from crappy tire.

    I also have an air rifle that is almost as powerful as my 22.

    I just got a membership at shooting edge. It was pricy but i guess the second year it goes down.

    575 to start and from there it may be 400 a year.

    Mitsu,

    I totally get it, but I don't see the necessity behind it. Of course you can only shoot at a range, but I would go very rarely so I would just purchase a day pass when i felt like going. I think a membership is a bit unnecessary. Again, just my thoughts. I'll do what i gotta do.

    Do you know of any other ranges/clubs that one could sign up for? Shooters Edge is the only place I know of.


    SJW,

    I normally wait to spring just because I hate cold, and the snow in my field is close to impassible. I can try to attack some of it over the next couple of weeks so I can at least be able to walk to the spot! (snow is taller than my car at the moment). My friend is itching to shoot his Ruger seeing he just upgraded to a new stock and bi-pod. I'll keep you informed when we decide to go.

    It's the only indoor range in Calgary, as far as I know. I think the police have a range too, but I don't think its for public use.

    Okotoks has a range too but I think it's outdoor only, and I've heard it's full...maybe someone else can confirm.

    You won't even be able to register a restricted without proof of range membership. Sounds like the best thing for you would be a Shooting Edge associate membership. $50/year for the membership so you can own a restricted. After that, it's $40 per visit (full price) and you can use your own ammo & gun. If you're only going to go a few times a year that's the way to go. Or, just go with a full member and you'll only pay $20 per visit. I'd be happy to get anyone in for less, I can bring 1 guest with me each time for $20 instead of $40.

    Also I'd love to go plinking with you guys or clay shooting when the weather improves...I don't own a non-restricted yet though. My next gun will either be a .22 or a semi-auto shotgun.

    Okotoks is indoor but it's only hand guns and small caliber rifles only.

    I really like the range in Olds, its always empty, huge land, long rifle bays. and you can go in the winter if you want.

    As for restricted, there are 2 ways of doing it. You become a member at a cheap range like the one near deerfoot mall, or you register your restricted as a collector.

    Collector = you have to call in EVERY time you transport the firearm

    Membership = you dont have to call in every time you transport the gun. But you can only transport it in between your house, the range and the gunsmith.

    I shoot a good amount of non-restricted and do some hunting too. I have a restricted PAL but haven't yet made use of it. I generally shoot at the Homestead Range, shotgun and rifle, and don't take too much issue with cold weather, although the -35 C of today may be a stretch. Getting together for a shoot, sooner or later, is not a bad idea at all.

    For any hunters out there, how was this past season?

    So here is my ruger. The bottom rail doesn't work for the laser so i'll put it on top and slide the bipod down more.



    This will be a fun gopher gun.

    I think you have the exact scope I piced up for my Marlin. Not bad for $50!

    BTW fellow plinkers, I have cleared most of the snow around my "Shooting Range". If the weather holds out this weekend, we could do some shootin'.

    I ordered the full length rails minus the top rail from yankee hill machine or dlask, can't remember. The short ruger rails suckballz.

    I bought the top rail from some place out east.
