The Swiss Rifle Club Calgary (SRCC) is a not for profit organization operated entirely by our volunteer members and is part of the Alberta Provincial Rifle Association. Started in the mid 1970’s, the club consisted primarily of Swiss Canadians who wished to practice the traditional shooting programs found in Switzerland. Over time, the membership grew to include people who were non Swiss as well so that today it is more representative of most shooting clubs.
The club has a rifle range with target positions at 50, 100, 200 and 300m where you can shoot rifles up to .338 caliber and a 25m handgun range for up to .45 caliber. On part of the rifle range, we use specialized electronic targets designed only for the Swiss K31 rifle. Members can use their own K31 or those provided free of charge by the club. GP11 ammunition, used in the K31, is provided to members for 60 cents a round.
We look forward to meeting you at the range!
The SRCC takes safety training very seriously and there is no better way to take it to the next level than by getting your Range Safety Officer (RSO) certification. This is taught by an authorized trainer from the Alberta Federation of Shooting Sports.
Handgun Holster Certification
SRCC offers a certification for the use of a handgun holster. This certification, or it's equivalent, is required should you want to use a holster on our range.
