" We are dedicated to enhancing the shooting skills of our members"
The Swiss Rifle Club Calgary (SRCC) was started in the mid 1970’s and consisted primarily of Swiss Canadians who wished to practice the traditional shooting programs found in Switzerland. Over time, the membership grew to include people who were non Swiss as well so that today it it more representative of most shooting clubs.
The club has a rifle range with target positions at 100, 200 and 300m and a 25m pistol range. On part of the rifle range, we use specialized electronic targets designed only for the K31 and PE90 rifles. Members may also bring their own firearms that use other types of ammunition for use on paper targets. As an option, the club provides firearms free of charge to club members and their guests, such as the Swiss Arms PE90 and Swiss K31, as well as several models of handguns. The only cost involved is the purchase of Swiss ammunition which we provide at a nominal cost. The shooting atmosphere is a relaxed one, where friendship and enjoying oneself is paramount.
While we have several competitions that anyone can compete in, we do have two programs we encourage members to shoot; the "Obligatorisch" and "Feldschiessen". You can shoot either of these programs on any weekend when an RSO is present.
The last weekend in October we hold our annual “Hunter Shoot” where we have a day of fun shooting at electronic animal targets and enjoy an excellent late afternoon dinner and present prizes to everyone.
We look forward to meeting you at the range!
The Swiss Rifle Club Calgary follows the Swiss tradition of shooting, using classic rifles such as the Karabiner Model 31 (K31) used by the Swiss military between 1933 to 1958 and the more current GP90 semi-automatic rifle.
