June

  • STEEL TARGETS REMOVED FROM PISTOL BAYS DUE TO MALICIOUS DAMAGE
       The following is an FYI from Jody Waring to all members in regards to Steel Targets: "On a go forward basis there will be no steel targets supplied for use by the general membership. They will only be available to shoot at organized matches. It was just brought to my attention that the plate rack I had made currently on the large pistol range had what looks like all of the plates destroyed. It will need to be taken out of service and off of the range before someone gets hurt. I have made the decision to no longer offer to build or supply any targets or other related items for use by the general membership. Not only is it disrespectful and ignorant, it is dangerous. If the guilty person(s) are caught I expect there to be a ban of their membership. This is property damage and I have grown tired of this behavior". - Jody Waring, Match Director HG/AS, Fundy Shooting Sports

  • FUNDY SHOOTING SPORTS RAISES $3000 FOR CCFR LEGAL DEFENSE FUND
      

       

    In case you haven't heard we were able to raise $3,000 to go to the CCFR Legal Defense Fund. The organizing team (mostly Jody Waring) put on a great shoot with a large attendance and lots of prizes. Our contribution was recently acknowledged on a CCFR Pod Cast, Episode #94 with Rod Giltaca and Tracey Wilson, which was broadcast nationally, here is the link. You can certainly watch it all, but our portion starts at time stamp 25:22 to 28:38. Unfortunately, they made it sound like we made our $3K donation plus another $2K from the club; they mixed up what we had previously donated last year and they have since acknowledged that fact but it doesn't detract from our accomplishment fighting the stupidity of the Trudeau liberals firearm confiscation scheme.
  • REMINDER OF RNBRA PISTOL COURSE JUNE 21 AND 22

       On Saturday September the 12th Fundy Shooting Sports will be hosting a Practical Shooting event open to members. Registration will be capped (numbers to be determined). Match fee is $20 and lunch and beverages are included in match fee. This event will utilize IPSC Safety rules which are very stringent. If you have not completed an IPSC Black Badge Course or have some form of holster training you will be allowed to carry your unloaded and holstered firearm on the range, but WILL NOT BE PERMITTED TO DRAW A LOADED FIREARM FROM THE HOLSTER. Provisions will be made and explained to you at the match. You will need a serviceable and safe handgun 9mm or larger, belt mounted holster and belt mounted magazine pouches will be an asset, OR a 9mm pistol caliber carbine with spare magazines and magazine carriers. You will require a minimum of 4 magazines for either your pistol or pistol caliber carbine (PCC) but more would be better. If you need additional ones, let me know maybe we can find some loaners. There will be shooter movement between targets and you will be under strict supervision of a Range Officer. If you have a loaded firearm, the trigger finger must be off the trigger unless you are engaging targets and muzzle must be pointed down range. ZERO EXCEPTIONS. Violations of either of these two infractions will result in match disqualification. Safety first. If you have not shot one of these events before, come out and watch and see if it interests you. If it does, we can get you some training and get you started. Please be advised that this event is geared more towards experienced shooters that shoot IPSC but if you are even a bit interested you should come out and at least see it in person and check it out. This may not be for the faint of heart: your round count will be 175+ rounds so bring lots. Preregistration is mandatory, no exceptions. Registration will open up to non club members over the weekend. Please register via email to ipscjody@yahoo.com and make the subject line "Outlaw Match". You will need to provide me with proof of Black Badge Training or similar training or experience to be permitted to draw a loaded firearm. Safety has to be everyone's number 1 priority. I will need to know what you will be shooting and what equipment you have, or may be in need of so include that information in your registration email. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me - Jody Waring, Match Director

       Please click the following links and sign these E-petitions to show your displeasure with the Trudeau government's trampling of the democratic process with the rushed and flawed introduction of the emotion-driven firearms ban.
  • ORDER IN COUNCIL FIREARMS BAN
       Due to the most unfortunate announcement yesterday by the Liberal government we have been left with no other option than banning all firearms on the attached list from the range. Like it or not, we must maintain our composure and follow the law. Any member or guest found with a newly prohibited firearm at the range will have their membership terminated. We cannot jeopardize our range status by any member who is breaking the law. We most certainly expect that this gun ban will be contested and will do our best to keep our Members informed with any updates. Any questions contact Bill Nason (696-2279) or Blake Tibbetts (647-2182) PARTIAL LIST: · M16, AR-10, AR-15 rifles and M4 carbine · Ruger Mini-14 rifle · US Rifle M14 · Vz58 rifle and CZ858 rifle · Robinson Armament XCR rifle · CZ Scorpion EVO 3 carbine and pistol · Beretta Cx4 Storm carbine · SIG Sauer SIG MCX and SIG Sauer SIG MPX carbines and pistols · Swiss Arms Classic Green and Four Seasons series rifles · ALL .50 CALIBRE (.50 BMG) RIFLES       LINK TO COMPLETE LIST OF BANNED FIREARMS
    RESPONSE FROM THE CCFR:  FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / MAY 02, 2020 / CCFR calls for Blair’s Removal OTTAWA, ON -The Canadian Coalition for Firearm Rights (CCFR) is calling for the immediate removal of Minister Bill Blair from the Public Safety file. Following a reading of yesterday’s regulation banning a swath of semi-automatic firearms and a briefing with officials from Public Safety, CBSA, Global Affairs, RCMP and the Department of Justice, it was made abundantly clear that the regulations were crafted in haste, and that the government has neither planned nor formulated the rest of the legislation required to implement their hastily crafted policy. As a result, the regulation is both flawed and dangerous. During the briefing the government could not answer simple questions about the methods used for selection, why bolt action firearms were included on the list, why some shotguns are caught in the bore diameter restrictions, why some rimfire firearms are listed contrary to the selection criteria, and on and on. They also stated that the government, on behalf of the Governor in Council, has deemed the list of firearms banned as “not suitable for hunting or sport shooting”, but simultaneously provided an exemption for indigenous owners for the purpose of hunting. Further, this is contrary to the decades-long history of these very firearms being safely used for hunting and sport shooting. This entire regulation bears the mark of an irrational process done in haste, and it divides Canadians. The CCFR further noted that some of the firearms listed in the regulation that are classified as prohibited have exactly the same specifications as other firearms not on the list. This is entirely random and proves without doubt, that the choices made were entirely political in nature. That is not a proper basis for legislation in a democracy. There are also flaws in that no consideration has been given to firearm owners who may move residency within the amnesty period, since transporting of these prohibited firearms is not permitted. The level of incompetence in this act by the Liberal government is astounding. As a result, we feel the Prime Minister and Canadians have been grossly under-served by the Minister and call for his immediate removal from over-seeing this process, and for the repealing of this regulation in order to consult technical experts. In the interim, the CCFR recommends that Canadian firearm owners retain their firearms and NOT turn them in to the government. This deeply flawed process must be reversed immediately. Consultations with legal experts are ongoing. For more information, contact: Tracey Wilson, VP, Public Relations Canadian Coalition for Firearm Rights - 1-844-243-CCFR(2237) - info@firearmrights.ca
  • STEEL PLATE DAMAGE BY CENTERFIRE RIFLES
       "Going forward any steel and related items that I build for use for club events will be locked up and I will use my discretion on who has access to them. This is getting beyond ridiculous and I have had it. A few irresponsible members have ruined it for everyone! This is ignorant, disrespectful and criminal as far as I am concerned. Also, not knowing who has keys for the seacan we may need to look at changing that lock as well. The pistol ranges are pig pens as well. We had numerous events all winter and kept the range clean. We stop having matches and it goes to hell in short notice. Sad we can not have more confidence in some of our members." - Jody Waring, Match Director, Handgun/Action Shooting Fundy Shooting Sports Let it be known that I fully support Jody in his decision to restrict access to steel targets for sanctioned shoots. It has been proven yet again that we can not leave steel targets out for members to enjoy and use responsibly. Unfortunately, Jody's efforts to source material and fabricate steel props has not been respected by a select few. Sadly, this ruins it for everyone...On a go forward basis, all steel targets will be locked up and not available to the membership. The containers in the handgun/action shooting ranges will have limited access as well. Keys will be issued to all members of the Executive as well as all members of the Handgun/Action Shooting committee. Additional keys will be available to active participants of HG/AS. All requests for a key will have to be approved by Jody Waring. No exceptions! Any questions please contact Jody or Bill. - Bill Nason, President, Fundy Shooting Sports
