Looking at joining a range, preferably something with open use schedules and no "old boys" politics.

pistol, rifle and occasionally trap.

I'm looking at Ridgedale rod and gun and Abby fish and game. could consider Mission too.

Anyone have experience with these clubs?

I'm a newer member at Mission and I find it quite nice and friendly. I also understand that its the only 300 meter range anywhere near here.

i looked into them a while ago. seems ridgedale had a huge waiting list. went to the abby club as a guest for shooting the bow and we were the only ones there for both gun or bow.

I used to be a member at mission. It was great they has a student rate. I should renew. I spent allot of time there and I was the only sole there.

i will add that those that have used the backwoods for target shooting is coming to an end soon. ive been chatting with some people making the new regs for stave lake area and our recent wanting to close it down all together. seems we will have it closed through the summer, will be road restrictions and area closures an a few more. the new maps were finished last week and went to print. should be out with new info soon. might not have any choice but buying into the ranges soon if it people dont start change the mentality up there

Yes. Nice range.

Two pistol ranges. One has lights and is 50M and you are aloud 22's rifles and pistol cal. long guns on it and the other was small and western themed.

I'll give the mission club a call, sounds good.

If you don't want "old boy's politics", stay away from the Ridgedale Club. That why I left there and went to the Abbotsford Club.

Thanks kami,

That's exactly what I want to stay away from.

I need to join again...I need to for my hand gun permit.

I just let it run out just last month.

I have never even taken a shot at Mission gun club while I was a member.
