SIGHT IN DAYS
Rifle, Archery and Crossbow
The UPPER HUMBER ROD and GUN ASSOCIATION will hold this activity at our club range at 177 Goose Arm Road in Deer Lake again in early September but due to an ever increasing range activity will allow an extra 3 days this week on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday evenings.
We are pleased to present the dates as posted below for the scheduled days prior to the hunting season. New dates for early September will be posted at a later time. The club will be assisting hunters to sight in their firearms prior to the up-coming hunting season. This will help with your marksmanship skills ensuring proper shot placement and hopefully a more successful hunting season with no losses or wounded animals escaping. This will also alert you of any firearms or equipment issues giving you time to correct any identified troubles prior to the hunting season. Good Luck ! We hope all your hunting activities are safe and successful.
Archery and Crossbow targets can and will be made available for target arrows only. We have 3 targets available that can be set up on a different range. Please call Wendell ahead of time if this is of interest to you.

A small fee per rifle will be collected. A portion of the funds collected will be passed along to a charitable foundation. ALL shooters will have to register on site and non-members will pay a $6.00 fee to help cover costs, prior to any shooting activity. A portion of the fees collected will be forwarded along with our own contribution to one or more of the following; The Western Memorial Hospital Foundation, The Janeway Children's Hospital or The Children's Wish Foundation so that the entire community may benefit from our outdoor activity. Donations to these charitable organizations help us, our children and their families in a time of need.
While at the range Hearing and Eye protection is mandatory for everyone near any shooting area and must be worn at all times during any shooting activity. Park in a safe area always !
Although the club has a supply of the safety equipment on hand, that supply will depend on the numbers of people present.
Our UHRGA eye and hearing equipment must be sanitized/disenfected before and after each use according to health guidelines to ensure all safety measures are adhered to. If you bring your own, there will be no sharing unless it is with close family members within your own bubble.
Masks can be worn at your discretion. Hand sanitizers or disinfectants are available at the club house.
Please make every effort to bring along your own range safety equipment and personal precautionary protection.

shoot will be held this coming Monday August 8th. Everyone is welcome to come participate and try out this sport. Fee is $5 for members and $15 for non members. Acceptable equipment would be any pistol or rifle chambered in 22LR or any normal pistol caliber (no magnums please). It is preferable to have five magazines as that will provide a smoother and more efficient to series of strings while at the line.
Planning to start at 6:00pm. Please arrive early if you plan on shooting and to help set up to get started on time so we can take advantage of all remaining daylight. Spectators are always welcome. Eye and ear protection is mandatory for all shooters and spectators.
Also, for those who shoot IPSC or are interested in the sport. Our dates for August and September are changed, we will be having a Match on Saturday August 20, and a practice day on Sunday August 21. For September, our practice day will be a single day on Sunday September 11.

Good day everyone,
I am happy to announce that we will be bringing Steel Challenge to the Upper Humber Rod and Gun Association! This could not have happened without some great support and help from our board and some others who have helped with equipment and range material!
We are planning to hold our first shoot this coming Monday, July 18, 2022 and hoping to start at 6:30pm with a short briefing followed by a fun evening of shooting. Cost to participate in this will be $5 for UHRGA members and $15 for non members.
This a fun sport and is very inclusive and accessible for more shooters compared to other sports such as IPSC, although after getting your feet wet in action shooting with our Steel Challenge shoots, I have a feeling that many of you will be interested in other disciplines such as IPSC as well! Is can be shot with 22lr so this can be a very cost effective way to have some fun as well!
All that is needed is a rifle or handgun chambered in 22lr or any normal pistol calibers (No magnums please). It is also recommended that you have 5 magazines or speed loaders as this will help with the smooth flow of event. If you don’t have 5, please don’t let that discourage you. We can try to find a way to work around it or allow you to still participated in a bit of a limited capacity.
Holster use is not required and there is no prerequisite to have Black Badge certification for this sport, although anyone who chooses to use a holster must have Black Badge certification for safety reasons.
Although this sport does have official rules, we must reserve the right to make minor allowances or changes to these in the interest of allowing everyone to participate safely in this event. There are also set stages contained in the rules, however we are treating these as fun shoots and will ba able to make changes to some of these stages for our purposes.
This event will have a safety area for casing and uncasing of firearms. I would ask that when everyone arrives, they keep their firearms cased until we are able to brief the use of these areas and the safe handling and movement of firearms on an active range.
I would encourage anyone who is interested in this or would like to know more to come on out and join us on Monday evening! Eye and ear protection is mandatory for all participants and observers. Spectators are always welcome! For those interested in shooting, please see the link below for the official rules. There are also many videos and websites that will give you a good idea for what to expect. Keep in mind that although some will show high levels of competitiveness, the main goal here is for everyone to have fun!
Sorry for bring so long winded here, but finally I would like to express that I am looking forward to kicking this off here at the club and can’t wait to see some familiar faces and meet some new ones along the way!!!
If anyone has any questions in the meantime, please feel free to reach out to me on Facebook or at email@example.com
Take care and looking forward to seeing you all at the range!
