    PSA: Silverdale Gun Club: range closure

    An e-mail I just received...




    CFO Range Closure
    DATE TO BE DETERMINED

    A bullet was found on the property behind the range. The CFO is obligated to complete a full investigation. Once the investigation has been completed and any issues repaired we will reopen.
    KEEP WATCHING THE WEBSITE for updates.

    TRAP and ARCHERY remain open.

    I wonder if the neighbours are at it again, or if someone actually did something stupid.

    Yep, that puts a damper on my plans too. Development in the area continues to get closer to the range so we can expect more of this in the future.
    We were told he wasn't ready, now we know he will never be!

    Was it a bullet or a whole cartridge? We've seen that before...

    Their only hope is to buy all the property in the area. The problem is that property in the Niagara region is becoming more and more valuable.

    Silverdale is a hugely important range to the community because it allows access to nonmembers, and this makes it a great place to take newbies, or do a bit of one-off shooting a couple of times a year.

    I'm mostly a handgun guy now, and did a fair bit of trap in the past, and had appropriate gun club memberships for those. But I used to go to Silverdale 2-3 times a summer to have fun with the rifles, usually with friends who were not gunowners. Since they put in the baffles because of past complaints about 3 or 4 years ago, I stopped going there because it became very unpleasant to shoot in those echo boxes.
