The Indoor Range is available for recreational shooting to RDFG Members with Range Privileges. The Indoor Range has scheduled times for members to shoot their handguns or small bore rifles (.22 LR etc.). Members must have their own handguns as the range does not offer rentals or loaners. The range does have .22LR caliber rifles for use if required.
Ammunition types that are allowed are .22LR, .38 Special, 9mm Luger, .45 ACP, and .45 Colt etc.
Military surplus ammunition with a steel core such as .32 x 25 mm Tokarov is not permitted.
Members who are new to handgun shooting are welcome. It is recommended that new handgun shooters start with a .22 LR handgun until they become proficient before advancing to a larger handgun. The regular shooters are willing to pass on advice and shooting tips.
Junior air gun shooting programs are offered. If you have questions regarding this program, please check the Contact Page to locate your club Junior Shooter’s Chair for help.
We stock paper targets, Junior air rifles and .22 target rifles.
Red Deer Fish and Game Association has renewed the lease at the Indoor Range Facility for another year.
Progress is slowly being made to achieve certification of the Springbrook indoor range. An application to certify the range is being worked on to apply to the CFO. In the mean time the Indoor Range will be in operation and we encourage shooters to use the facility. Members are able to invite a guest to shoot or introduce them to the sport of shooting.
