2023 National Range Day


2023 Range Day

Saturday June 03 2023 was our 2nd Annual Range Day.

The community was invited to attend our facilities and experience firing a variety of firearms and bows for FREE. This years event was held under bright sunny skies and moderate temperature. Public turn out was excellent and doubled last years and once again involved involved members of:

  • Cariboo Archers with various bows and targets
  • Shotgun -trap and skeet
  • Rifle – from .22 cal to 308. Iron sights and scopes
  • Williams Lake Practical Shooters – part of International Practical Shooters Confederation (BC)
  • Chilcotin Range Riders – aka Cowboy Action

Eye and ear protection was mandatory for all person(s) and WLSA provided soft individual ear plugs as well as safety glasses. All firing lines were under the control of a master qualified range officer while individual stations also had range officers.

Attendees were treated to 1 on 1, hands on, live firing of firearms and in some cases 2 range officers to 1 participant as well as bbq hotdogs, pop, juice and potato chips. The event was broadcast by Cariboo Country 570 Williams Lake / 100.3 Quesnel live from our facilities.

There were experience individual who had not been out for sometime to toddlers who were had to stand on the seat, with dad or mom there of course, to help with the aiming.

We are able to present some photos of the event, preparing and then some from participants but once it got busy, well we were having too much fun.
