Langley Rod and Gun Club
"Serving Shooting Sports since 1946"

Welcome to the LRGC Website! 
This home page will have the most current notices and information for new and existing members!


Help Needed Please!

Last PITA 3-Day Shoot (in May) we had a lot of shooters and that worked our few volunteers hard!

We need more volunteers to step-up and assist as the more we have helping, the easier it is on all those that volunteer - so please step forward!

We are now looking for volunteers to assist as follows:

1) to help operate the kitchen and/or
BBQ preparing breakfast/lunch for the
shooters on Sat. & Sun. Aug 11 & 12.

and

2) as scorers out on the range on Fri., Sat., and Sun Aug 10, 11 & 12 (this is not difficult - we will train you). Could you not come and help score - even for a few hours?

So please check your calendar - the next upcoming PITA shoot is on Fri, Sat. & Sun. Aug 10-12 2018.

If you can help in the kitchen - please contact

Karen: 604-540-6394 or email her at dennis_robinson@telus.net

If you can help score - please contact Harry Sullivan at 604-533-1702 or email him at elaineplusharry@gmail.com

As you know - the major PITA shoots bring in essential club funding which helps to keep our membership fees as low as possible. However, to run these shoots requires volunteers to organize, get the ranges ready and fill the trap machines, and to score the events as they happen.



Notice - New Membership Policy 
starting June 1, 2018

All new and renewing members, and any guests utilizing any outdoor range (archery included)
will be required to read and sign a "Shooter's Agreement" indicating that they have read, understood, and will abide by all firearm safety and club rules.  This will require approximately 15 minutes prior to receiving your new membership card, renewal sticker or guest day pass (or you may download, review and bring the signed form with you - go to "membership" tab to download). It is intended that this process will be required only once (unless unforeseen major rule changes are forthcoming).  Your signed form will be recorded in the LRGC database once received. It should be noted that this is already standard policy for all indoor range users, and is now being expanded to include outdoor range users. Note that those individuals using both indoor and outdoor facilities will be required to sign both indoor and outdoor "Shooter's Agreements" as they are quite different! 
Thanks for your cooperation!

Your LRGC Board at work trying hard
to make all our club ranges safe!

(Note: As always - any and all comments regarding club policy should be directed to the Board or planning@lrgc.com
and not the office staff!)

THANK YOU to our Range Officers!
Thanks to all that came out and helped to supervise the three groups shoots we had on
June 2!  We had some very happy adult shooters and a whole bunch of smiling kids after the shoots, and we wouldn't have been able to do it without our volunteers! Thanks again!
Your time volunteering is always
very much appreciated!
(PS: FYI - all three groups were so happy - they
all provided an extra donation to our Jr. Program on their own initiative! That's saying something!)

Indoor Range Schedule Changes:

LRGC Archery Indoor Program reinitiated as of Feb 25, 2018 

The LRGC Board has purchased equipment and has set aside Sunday from 5 - 8 pm for indoor Archery sessions.   

Due to the popularity of the Jr. Rifle Program, the Saturday indoor shooting session will be shortened to end at 3:00 pm and an additional Jr. Rifle session will be added from 4:00 - 5:00 pm (Note: the time between sessions will allow for proper clean-up, firearm change-over and Jr. sign-in before start).
This schedule change will start on Saturday, May 12, 2018.

We are looking for ideas to get more 22 cal rifle shooters
out to the indoor range (session now on Wednesday nights is under-utilized) - let us know your thoughts! 

It has been suggested we have "for fun" .22 cal scoped rifle matches (bench-rest, standing and prone)
quarterly on Wednesday evenings. 
Let me know if this interests you!

  Indoor Range Closures: 

Indoor Range Closed on Saturday Aug 11
& Archery CANCELLED Sunday Aug 12 
due to the 3-day PITA shotgun shoot. 

Regulatory News!
Liberals Introduce Bill C71 
This bill is will not result in crime reduction or gang violence, or help solve any such issues we would all like to see fixed, but instead it will ONLY waste more taxpayer money that could have been used in this fight (just like the long-gun registry which wasted over $2 Billion!). The Liberals are not logical or responsible, as once again they are merely imposing more rediculous beauracracy on law-abiding firearm owners.
Ask yourself - do they actually think the criminals are going to pay any attention whatsoever to more administrative rules and paperwork? Such foolishness! This is just more "legal firearm owner harrassment" - nothing else!
For a brief informative video - click here: THE REAL STORY
Show your opposition to the C71 bill - now referred to more properly as the "Firearm Owners Harassment Act"
- by signing the petition at the link below! We can make a difference and kill this bill!  Over 65,000 have signed already! Do your part and sign!

‘Huge Rush’ on Bill C-71 Could Make It Law by Fall, MP Motz Says

(Update Monday 09 April, 16:15 Toronto time.) 

TheGunBlog.ca — The Canadian government has put a “huge rush” on Bill C-71 to ban more guns and further restrict hunters and sport shooters, said Glen Motz, an opposition MP and Deputy Shadow Minister for Public Safety. He said the proposed law could be adopted as early as the fall. See full story and what to do at link below - a related CBC article is also available:
