Winter Classic Shoot
& Annual Christmas
Toy Drive  

The toy drive was a huge success!! We received approximately $3,000 worth of toys and $200.00 in cash / gift cards.

The toys were collected from our clients, members and the Calgary Fire Fighters, through their toy collection. A special thank you to Gord and Joanne Robb. It's become quite a tradition and a way to give back to our community. Thank you to everyone who participated and make this effort so incredible. This year everything was donated to the Carstairs Lions Club for their 2020 Christmas Hamper efforts.
This year for the Winter Classic we had a great turn out of shooters, it was a wonderfully warm winter day for this annual event. Congratulation to Bob Ferguson with a HOA score of 86 / 100. Picture below is the winner Bob Ferguson and on his right is owner Don Day

Pilla Glasses
Pilla Glasses

15 % Sale - for the month of DECEMBER
Shooting glasses enhance your shooting ability as well as providing protection from broken clays. When choosing shooting glasses, opt for yellow or orange lenses to enhance the clay pigeons in low light and to block out glare. Amber lenses are generally good for enhancing your perception, and purple/vermilion increases visibility.
The color of the pigeons comes alive with the proper shade of lenses.

The Need For Speed

AUTHOR: LUTHER CUTTS, HEAD INSTRUCTOR (NSCA LEVEL 3), COMPETITOR

One does not have to spend a lot of time on the shotgun range or in the clubhouse to hear someone’s theories on the velocity of their shotgun cartridges. Not everyone puts a lot of thought into it, but some do, and some apparently put a whole lot of thought into this topic.
