Welcome to the April edition of the Canadian Shooting Federation Newsletter. Now that it's getting nicer out we can start getting outdoors! The Carleton Firearms Association (CFA) had an event with the student Conservative group (top). Pictured is Pierce, a CFA exec, showing a new shooter how to safely use his GSG-15. The event went very smoothly, and Carleton Firearms hopes to get the on-campus Liberal and NDP student groups out to the range in the future!
Lethbridge College and the University of Calgary got together for a first ever combined shoot at the Lethbridge Fish and Game Association range. The beautiful big bore range (left) clocks in at 300 yards. We hope to see more club interaction in the future! It's a great way to connect students to their fellow shooting enthusiasts that they wouldn't necessarily meet otherwise.
Hopefully you got a chance to read the Calibre article (right) that was published about our group. Note that since writing we have increased our number of teams to 10! Big thanks to Timothy Fowler for his very positive and informational article on the sport shooting clubs that are forming across the country.
