LRGC New Rules for Indoor Range Effective Saturday Aug 22, 2020
(Rules Revised Monday, Aug 17, 2020
)

Dear LRGC Members:

The INDOOR range reopened to shooting on Saturday Aug 15 after a complete renovation / upgrade of our backstop. We now have AR500 armour plate behind the wood target wall. Thanks to all that contributed to this major project! 

BC Health requirements continue to restrict the numbers of shooters in the indoor range.
Social distancing and attention/compliance with COVID-19 infection risk precautions remain the major defense for our members - so please obey the rules (both BC Health and WorksafeBC are monitoring). We have also built and regularly employ a UV-C/Ozone disinfecting system to kill all DNA-based material (which includes the corona virus) after our shooting sessions to further reduce the risk of infection within the indoor range. 

The indoor range rules are continuously being reviewed and modified to try to accommodate our members as best as RCMP and BC Health requirements will allow.  The most recent changes are highlighted in the document provided below, with a summary of the major changes also provided here.  

Shooting will still be by online registration/reservation only and for eligible LRGC members only (no outside guests - except for special events).  You must also have previously signed a Shooter's Agreement and been "checked-out" by a Range Officer prior to reserving a spot. Otherwise you must attend a "New Shooter Orientation Session" prior to registering to shoot. 

Read the rules to find out if you are eligible to reserve a spot! Only the posted sessions at times shown on the club calendar will be held.  (Note: Go to the calendar tab above and then click on the event to register. You must sign-in as a club member to be able to register for a session)

Download LRGC New Rules for the Indoor Range here: 
LRGC New Indoor Range Rules - Revised Aug 17 2020 
 

The major changes to the Indoor Rules (effective Aug 22 - and highlighted in file) are summarized here:

1) Online registrations can now be paid either online (via PayPal) as previous, or you can select "invoice me" and pay by LRGC shoot card in the range.  You must bring your invoice with you showing paid or unpaid! No cash will be accepted inside the range. Targets and shoot cards are available for purchase from the LRGC office when open. 

2) Session duration has been changed from 1.5 hrs + 15 min. prep time to 1.0 hr + 15 min. prep time.  This is a result of nearly all shooters leaving prior to one hour after starting.  Please note that as a result the session's start and end times have changed! 

3) Junior shooters may attend a shooting session with an adult shooter that resides with them.  

4) You may now register for up to two sessions per week. This is up from the previous one session per week. 

5) "New Shooter Orientation Sessions" are now being scheduled to make our new  members eligible to reserve a spot for indoor shooting. 

If you have questions or concerns - email: planning@lrgc.com 

Thank you for your continued patience and cooperation while we tune our system and continually try to enhance its features for the benefit of our members! 

Sincerely, 

Your LRGC Board

 LRGC REVISED New Rules for Outdoor Ranges 
Revised on Thursday, June 25 2020
 

Download LRGC REVISED New Outdoor Range Rules here:
LRGC New Outdoor Range Rules - Revised June 25 2020 
 

Dear club members, 

Well, the outdoor ranges continue to operate with good success.  As such, the Board reassessed the situation - and has implemented some modifications for the outdoor range operations as of -  Thursday, June 25 2020.  These modifications are highlighted in the downloadable file above - and include primarily the following:

1) Permitting LRGC Members and their guests, reciprocal club members and non-member drop-in shooters to attend as of June 25 2020.  A maximum of 50 persons on the property is still a requirement of BC Health even now in Phase 3. 

2) Increasing Skeet squads from 4 to 5 shooters to allow more shooters onto the range. Social distancing is still required.  

Also - the club continues to be on a FULL SUMMER Schedule - which includes outdoor shotgun shooting on Wednesday evenings until 7:30 pm (which resumed May 20 2020). 

The Board will continue to reassess the situation as things change, we learn more and are allowed to loosen restrictions.  

Hope you will enjoy getting back to the outdoor ranges! 

Your LRGC Board

Firearm News - July 27, 2020

Did you receive the RCMP’s
“Not A-Registration-Certificate-Revocation” letter?
 

This is the next "salvo" in the Liberal/RCMP bag of tricks for licensed responsible firearm owners
(as of course no criminals would receive/obey these!) 
 
If you received one - please read the info below! 
(Even if you didn't receive one - please read also as they have executed this
same trickery in years past and surely will again!) 

Note: The OIC/RCMP list continues to grow (from 1500 to now over 9500 firearm types -
without any oversight - and even including non-restricted 22 cal. rifles and shotguns)
so yours might be on it now or very soon - even if it wasn't originally listed,
thereby making YOU an instant criminal! 

CSSA Update on RCMP Letter

For more detailed info - listen to this video:
Legal Opinion on RCMP Letter

CCFR Position on filing a Sec. 74 Court Challenge: 

CCFR Position on Sec. 74 Challenge 

If you as a firearm owner are not yet supporting CSSA, CCFR or NFA (or all three) - then please - get your head out of the sand - and support/donate!  What are you waiting for? No one else is going to help us.  The more they take - the more they will want - and their goal is to take them all! 
Aren't you tired of being demonized for enjoying the shooting sports? 

PLEASE - DO YOUR PART! 

And be sure to support and vote for the ONLY party that will support you as a firearms owner!

Firearm News: May 25 2020

What can I do to fight the Liberal Firearm Bans and stop them from "scapegoating"all Licensed Firearm Owners
for the actions of Criminals?

1) Sign the available petitions in support these issues! 

Why are you urging me, and everyone I know, to sign these petitions? 

We have an opportunity to give our political allies the ability to keep the stupidity of the Liberal government’s latest round of gun bans in the public’s eye. Why is this important?

Politicians need tools to do their jobs, and one of the tools at their disposal are petitions. I dislike petitions because, far too often, they give the person signing them the false impression they’ve actually accomplished something when they have not. Signing a petition is not an end. It’s not even a beginning. The value of a petition is to give our elected officials – in this case our Conservative MPs – the ability to keep raising the issue both inside and outside of Parliament. The flaws in the Liberal government’s latest Order in Council are many. As more and more of these flaws surface, a petition gives our MPs the ability to speak about those failings – which can only help our cause.

So… here are the links. Please go to them all, sign your name and, MOST IMPORTANTLY, click the confirmation email you will receive for the first three very shortly afterward. If you do not, your name will NOT be added to the list.

  1. Petition e-2574 (Democratic process)
  2. Petition e-2576 (Democratic process)
  3. Petition e-2582 (Democratic process)
  4. Matt Larose’s petition on Change.org [h/t @AnnieOak5]
  5. UNIFOR Members Only on Change.org
  6. MP Cheryl Gallant’s Petition To Fire Bill Blair

Sign them, click on the confirmation link in the three emails you will receive For petitions 1-3), then ask all your family and friends to do the same. Will these petitions in and of themselves stop the latest Liberal nonsense? No, of course not. They are simply one more tool in our arsenal to fight back against measures we know will not and cannot stop gang shootings or mass killers.

2. Support our firearm rights groups that are leading the fight!  
Many of these organizations are currently involved in bringing "human rights" court challenges against the government on your behalf to expose and fight the government's actions to blame and punish licensed firearm owners and businesses (through these and future firearm bans) for the actions of madmen. 

The legal question regarding 12 and 10 gauge shotguns, and any other firearms they see fit to ban is NOT over - don't assume that it is!  The RCMP continue to add shotguns and other rifles to the growing list of prohibited firearms - without any oversight! 

Support these groups through membership and donations!

Now is the time for action - NOT excuses!  Please do it now!  Don't forget to donate - we will all lose much more if these challenges are NOT successful!

a.  CCFR - https://firearmrights.ca/en/donate/

b.  CSSA - https://cssa-cila.org

c.  NFA - https://nfa.ca

3. Write your MP, the Prime Minister and Bill Blair 

Tell them you are against the bans and their continued "scapegoating" of legal firearm owners.  More letters are better than long letters - and keep sending!  Snail mail is best - No postage required.  

4. Donate to the only political party interested in supporting you as a licensed firearms owner - the Conservative Party of Canada! Support and donate to them as they continue to fight for us in Ottawa.  Only they have stated publicly that repeal of this OIC and a revamping of the Firearm program in Canada is needed to stop the scapegoating of licensed firearm owners!  Don't forget about the generous tax credit for donations (about 75% up to about $450 which means it costs you only about $125 to make this donation!)
Donate here:  CPC  https://www.conservative.ca

BTW - Don't expect others to protect YOUR rights as a firearms owner - if we don't ALL do something to help fight against this attack on us - then one day soon they will come for our firearms!  It will only work if we ALL respond as the Liberals have a divide and conquer plan of action as we have all seen in the past. 


(FYI - My understanding is that notices from the RCMP are already in the mail addressed to all PAL holders! This is what it looks like:  RCMP Notice to PAL Holders
