[Hello everyone. New to this forum and looking forward to trying field target. Picked myself up an Hw50s nickel with a Hawke 4-12X50 Airmax EV scope in 177. Just need some guidance or suggestions on where and/or who to get in touch with.

Still looking for a place to shoot in Calgary that doesn't cost $500 a year to join. My gun is feeling neglected because I've got nowhere near to shoot heheh. Cheers everybody!

$500.00 - ??? - that's expensive. We charge $125.00 for single and $140.00 for family memberships. This gives 3,000 million PL & PD insurance coverage when shooting or hunting. We still get many complaints about the expensive memberships.

Actually that price is now $400 as of 2015 (not sure if there's gst on top of that)

Original poster, have you considered the 30 min drive to the Mclean Creek area west of town? That's crown land and a paradise for dirt bikers and 4x4ers. You often find people shooting there, there are a few good spots for it. I plan to head there sometime this spring, now that the area is open (as of yesterday). It is legal to shoot in crown land as long as you use common sense and prove that you're not hunting, which typically means showing the park warden your target (that hopefully isn't a dead bunny).

I know Robbie wants to shoot FT as well, he also lives in Calgary. If there is enough interest to shoot FT, you guys can start your own club.

Some queen's land, and an approval for air rifle shooting. I shoot and practice at a Archery club, that's not too far away. About 20 km. I love to shoot in the bush, especially up and down hill shots.

Just something I do to practice. If you have a couple of targets you can basically shoot any where.

I'd gladly pay $400 to shoot at CRPC. When can I expect you to move it a bit closer? :P

On a more serious note to the OP. If you're interested in meeting up with some Alberta shooters in a fine Calgary facility (CRPC), PM castle02, Rich, introduce yourself and say you'd like to attend the May shoot on the 30th. For $25, you can try out the facility (notably close to the Calgary airport), meet some Calgary and Alberta shooters, and put your hardware at ease. We look forward to a few months of outdoor shooting starting in June (more FT-like but still casual), so it may be a good contact point for you.

Isn't the shoot on the 23rd? Correct me if I'm mistaken.

My understanding is that most of the shooting clubs in and around Calgary are limited to 25 yards or so. Most FT courses shoot over any distance from 10yds to 55yds so FT "practice" would be somewhat limited.

True, oh so true, my far-travelling-to-anywhere friend (What was the name of that town, again? :mrgreen:) But, a friendly warmup and intros indoors at 25 yards, followed by several months in the likes of rockerville, would offer up many 80-yrd + FT-type shooting opportunities, plus a connection to other FT shooters in Alberta. :wink:

And I'd love to know the source (reference) of that quote from Pudin
