SWISS RIFLE CLUB CALGARY

Range Rules


Based on our current range configuration we are permitted by the government to shoot with the following rules and restrictions:

    • Use our online booking system to reserve a spot prior to driving out to the range;
    • Always wear your membership ID when on the APRA property;
    • Drive to the main gate on Homestead Rd. If it is locked, then open the lock, drive through and lock it behind you. If the gate is not locked, then make sure you lock it behind you;
    • Drive through the access gate to the Swiss Range. If the gate is locked, then open it and lock it behind you. If the gate is in the open position, then leave it open. You will notice a red flag at the gate entrance. There is no need to use this flag. It indicates that the 900m firing point at the Fullbore range is either live or not.
    • Once at the Swiss range, the first thing you should do is raise the red flag in the parking lot and sign into the register. If you are the last person to leave the range, lower this flag.
    • If there are two or more people at the range, one person must be designated as the RSO. That person is responsible for the conduct of the firing line, calling ceasefires and letting everyone know when the range is live;
    • You may bring up to two guests at one time. You must purchase guest passes either online or pay cash by using the envelopes provided in the sign in register located at the range;
    • Regardless which range you use, you must remove all your brass and waste material including targets. Brass is to be deposited in the containers provided at the shooting line, and garbage in the bear proof bins outside.
    • Use a bolt flag during ceasefires;
    • When moving about the range with your firearm, make sure it is unloaded, bolt flag in, and the MUZZLE POINTED STRAIGHT UP at all times;
    • On the firing line, use the red to indicate the range is live, or the green flag to indicate a ceasefire;
    • You can only use paper targets on the target frames provided;
    • If there is wildlife on the range, call a ceasefire immediately and wait for it to leave;
    • If something is broken at the range send an email to the club using the contact form provided on this website, or directly to the club secretary. There is no need for you to try and fix something yourself.
    • Swiss Electronic 300 meter rifle range. When using the electronic targets, only the K31 rifle is permitted

Rifle Range

    • When using the 50m target, you can only use .22 or .17 cal rimfire rifles. No other calibers or firearms are allowed;
    • When using the target frames at 100, 200 & 300m 

      only rifles with a calibre of no more than .338 Lapua are permitted;
    • only paper or cardboard targets can be used. No bottles, cans, exploding targets (such as Tannerite) or anything else can be used;

            • Only handguns no more than 45 calibre;
            • No metal piercing rounds;
            • No Thompson Contender handguns;
            • No shotguns or rifles are permitted;
            • Important. For those interested in using the handgun range at SRCC you must have an RPAL. For more information regarding the process involved in obtaining your RPAL you can read more on the RCMP website. When filling out your application you will be required to demonstrate that you belong to an approved handgun range. For the purposes of this application, you should use the Alberta Provincial Rifle Association (APRA) as your approved range, and provide a copy of your SRCC membership card which shows membership in the APRA.

          Parking

          The SRCC has two main parking areas. The upper lot is located just adjacent to the shooting area and is the normal lot you should use. When the upper lot is full, use the lower area in front of the building at the bottom of the small hill leading up to the range. Members can only park in these areas.
