    Private Range

    Is approved!!!



    All handgun rounds, .22lr handgun and rifle, .223rem and calibers covered under the template.

    Would have had it sooner but I am the master of procrastination.

    Berm in the distance, just taking pictures of my Stag one day



    I'll end up posting more pictures as I use it. Gonna be fun! I just wish I had it when the weather was warmer.

    Congrats! But you can't shoot your 223 from more than 25m?

    25 meters is only 27 yards(88 feet). Fence posts are typically 6 to 8 feet apart. Exactly how far is the bench from the back stop? Remember to CYA.

    So, please give us a rough idea what this process cost you - you have the land, access to heavy equipment, the regulatory BS, I'm sure it isn't for the faint of heart...

    I was just taking pictures of my non restricted stag10 back before the range was approved.

    Well the land is expensive obvs
    The equipment was $800ish to dig out the side of the hill
    Tractor that we own was used to back fill
    Railway ties off of kijiji not expensive

    It was easy in leduc country

    Just follow the bylaws, email the county to point out the specific bylaws and forward that to the CFO

    It was actually easy and didn't cost much. Surprisingly zero costs to have the CFO come out. 2.5hrs from downtown edmonton, they didn't complain it was off the beaten pavement. No ATV needed but just a grand cherokee.
