The LDFGA Outdoor Range will be closed on July 23 and part or all of July 24th 2018, to survey the area for preparation of the construction project that will enhance our range. The range will be open for use on July 24th & 25th and then be closed for the construction period starting on Friday July 27th. The range will then be closed for 7 to 10 days, depending on the weather and how the construction proceeds.
Note that the time Schedule can change at any time. Due to the various circumstances, so please check the LDFGA website for official opening and closures of the Outdoor range during this period.
During the period between the time of the surveying and the start of the construction, please do not touch any of survey stakes that are in place, as the cost of this project is high enough without having to pay to put these stakes back in the ground.
Thank you in advance

Irresponsible and Dangerous Firearm Use
Irresponsible and dangerous use of firearms continues to occur at our Outdoor Range. A recent bullet hole in a neighbouring oil tank; shooters regularly using solid targets such as metal or rocks; reports of the firing line not being respected are all serious concerns.
The Chief Firearms Officer of Sask. inspects and licenses our range and has certified it to be safe if it is used as designed. We must be able to ensure that no bullets leave the boundaries of the range. The berms and cave-like enclosures ensure this when used properly. There MUST NOT BE ANY SHOOTING above the backstop boards or at objects on the ground or off the range. Shooting at metal, rock or hard targets almost always results in ricochets off range. If there are complaints from area residents or continuing incidents, we could easily lose our license and be shut down.
ANY ACTS OF ILLEGAL, DANGEROUS, OR IRRESPONSIBLE USE OF RANGE FACILITIES, OR ACTS OF VANDALISM OR DESTRUCTION OF PROPERTY WILL RESULT IN IMMEDIATE AND PERMANENT REVOCATION OF MEMBERSHIP AND BANISHMENT FROM LLOYDMINSTER & DISTRICT FISH & GAME PROPERTY, AS WELL AS CRIMINAL CODE, FIREARMS ACT, AND CIVIL CHARGES. We have over 1500 members, each with the privilege of using the range. We must first monitor our own use, but secondly, monitor others who are abusing the range rules or we will all lose this privilege.
REPORT ALL ABUSES to the phone numbers on the gate or to the RCMP.
