Handguns


Welcome to the handgun page of the Lone Butte Fish and Wildlife.  Our ranges are very multipurpose facilities that provide shooting opportunities to club members and guests.  The Handgun portion of the club has three bays at their disposal(5,6&7), though handguns are allowed to be shot on all ranges except the trap range.

Bay 5 is set up for fun stuff like shooting steel and has target stand ready for your paper targets

Bay 6 is set up for target practice or shooting steel or setting up paper targets

Bay 7 is set up for target practice or shooting steel or setting up paper targets

 All target stands and steel are the property of the Lone Butte Practical Shooters and as such be used as follows:

  • do not move steel out of bay that it is in
  • don't shoot steel closer than 10 meters
  • do not shoot steel targets with rifle or high powered handgun rounds(357,44 mag,500 etc.)
  • do not staple or tape targets to wooden walls or barricades
  • use target stands provided used paper targets are usually available at bay 6 for every ones use
  • provide your own stapler and tape
  • clean up after yourself
Please follow the rules, don't forget to sign in and use only paper targets, not bottles or cans etc. thank you

Starting in the Spring the Lone Butte Practical Shooters will be having a fun shoot once a month.  This fun shoot will entail IPSC styled shooting.  All it takes is a conventional handgun several magazines, a holster and about 150 rounds.

Come out Saturday mornings at 10 am and see the fun that can be hand with this style shooting.

Introduction to IPSC

IPSC is the acronym for the International Practical Shooting Confederation. IPSC is a dynamic shooting sport where the principles of Accuracy, Power and Speed are balanced in a unique scoring system. IPSC has defined Action Shooting. It requires competitors to shoot fast and accurately, often shooting on the move and developing techniques and styles to shave off fractions of a second between shots, during reloads and drawing from the holster.

If you're finding that the standard "shoot from the designated position" routine at your range is getting old, then IPSC is for you. No matter how good you become, IPSC will continue to challenge you. Competitors compete both against their own skill and against others of similar ability.

IPSC is an International sport, active in over 75 countries. IPSC Canada is our regional organization and is broken up into several Sections (Provinces). IPSC BC competitors have competed locally, Nationally and have also attended International competitions as far away as Europe, Africa and the Far East.

If you're not sure IPSC is for you, come check out one of our competitions. You can find out where they are by looking at our Match Calendar.
