Shotguns are allowed in bays 2, 3 & 4 ONLY with bays 2 & 3 dedicated to shotgun use only.
The Range is locked at all times and members require a key for access. The ranges are reserved at various times for club competitions and matches, and occasionally when rented for firearms training and practice by other groups such as RCMP, Conservation Officers, and private security.
The two ranges are located just west of Kamloops near the weight scales on the Trans Canada Hwy (heading west toward the junction of the Coquihalla Hwy and the Hwy to Cache Creek). SW ¼ of Section 8, Township 20, Range 18, W6M – Kamloops Division Yale District.
Our indoor range includes a meeting room, foyer for spectators, and 8 shooting positions. The 20 meter shooting distance allows shooters to hone their skills in a clean heated environment during the winter. The range is used for handguns, 22 rifles and airguns. It is used by the Archery, Cowboy action shooters, IPSC and Smallbore shooters as well as the Juniors. Thursday evenings are usually reserved for fun shooting with pistols.
