    BTSA’s Action Shooting League (ASL)  gives shooters an opportunity to practice the fundamentals of competitive Action Shooting. (IPSC, USPSA, 3 GUN)

    On Thursday evenings and select weekends, participants practice shooting challenging and exciting courses of fire.

    Results are scored in PractiScore following rules and regulations based on our affiliate shooting disciplines.  This gives participants a taste of action shooting without the stress of an actual competition.

    The ASL is open to both BTSA members and the general public.

    Weather permitting, between early spring until late fall, we will shoot from 5:00pm until sunset using specialized action shooting props.

    For more information, join our Facebook group (BTSA Action Shooting League) or on PractiScore (Buffalo Target Shooters Association)

Please note, when a family member is on the line, they are under the care of the range officer. Please do not distract them from following the RO’s instructions. If the RO is unfamiliar with your particular firearm, they will as for assistance as needed. If you would like coaching or advice while you are shooting, please let the RO know and they should be happy to oblige.

     

    A note regarding classifications

    Classifications are used to help competitors measure their success against shooter shooting with a similar ability and skill set. A D class production shooter and a Grand Master rimfire rifle open shooter can’t be equally compared. In order to earn a classification, you must be a current USPSA member and complete any 4 stages using one of the recognized equipment divisions. Most equipment will work with the exception of Center fire handguns from low ready.

    Safety

    While no one wants to disqualify (DQ) a shooter, safety is our top priority. If you commit a serious safety infraction, as noted in the rules, you will be done shooting for the day. Any scores completed to that point will stand but you will not be able to continue shooting the match. It will be up to the match director and range master’s discretion as to whether you may remain on the range. If you are permitted to remain to watch friends/family shoot, you may not handle any uncased firearms for the remainder of the day. Example of serious, DQ-able, violation include, but are not limited to, Ammo on the safe table, loaded firearms off the firing line, negligent discharge of a firearm, muzzle sweeping yourself or others, picking up a dropped gun, and dropping a loaded gun during a course of fire.

    The Outlaw Rimfire Precision Series (ORPS) is a national precision rimfire competition series that clubs and ranges can participate in on a monthly basis. A new 5-stage course of fire published each month and results are tabulated at the end of the month with national and provincial standings published. Series points will be awarded to each shooter that will count to the overall, annual leaderboard standings. 
    The series is limited to .22lr rimfire rifles and uses a standard target set and commonly available set of shooting positions and positional barricades. The series is designed to be shot on ranges with a 100yd distance. The matches are 5-stages in length with each stage having a maximum time limit of 120 seconds. Match round counts are 50-rounds per match or 10 rounds per stage. Distances are set distances of 25, 50, 75, and 100 yards with target sizes varying from ¼” to 6”.  A great way to hone some or learn some new rifle skills and have fun with fellow shooters while doing it. No experience required. Ladies and youth (18 and under) shoot for free.

    It is a mandatory course required to shoot IPSC matches in Canada. IPSC is a dynamic shooting sport where the principles of Accuracy, Speed, and Power are balanced in a unique scoring system. 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.

            - Eye and ear protection
            - Good boots or track shoes for uneven terrain and/or wet conditions

            - Water or other non-alcoholic beverages to last the day
            - Lunch as we take lunch at the range so we can continue with the course
            - Sun screen
            - Bug repellent
            - Chair (to sit down between exercises, optional)
            - Brass bag to pick up brass (optional, but picking brass is mandatory per range rules)

    National Range Day & Open House Event

    If you are available on June 1st 2024 and would be willing to assist with:

    • Guiding guests, setting up stages
    • Range Officer and demonstrations
    • Cooking and Hosting

    We are looking for both men and women to help make this day a success.

    Why should I volunteer?

    BTSA has always depended on its members to perform almost every task needed to make the club work. Historically that has included significant construction projects, every type of maintenance task, organization, and running of matches, courses, youth events, safety programs, not to mention every aspect of administrative work it takes to ensure our Club functions and thrives. Without our volunteers, range fees would be too costly for most people to afford. 

    There are many reasons why you should help out with this and other events that BTSA has to offer the community. BTSA has various activities throughout the spring, summer, and fall that involve inviting the community out to enjoy the shooting sports. BTSA also raises money through some of these events for various charities.  Without the help of volunteers, this can’t happen.

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.

      Basic equipment requirements: Pistol (minimum 9mm caliber), 3 magazines (preferably 4), 3 magazine pouches(preferably 4),  and a holster which must cover the trigger when the gun is holstered, a belt to mount the equipment on and 500 rounds of ammunition

      For further details and information, please contact Nick at nadraz@nucleus.com.

      Fees for this course are collected by the instructor. Cost of the course is $300.

        Where?

        BTSA range bays 1,2,3,4,5. Shooters may drop their gear at the top but please park down the road or in the lot as parking at the top is needed for match staff. The main road gate and BTSA gates will be opened at about 8:00 am

        Gates open 8am, setup 8:30, mandatory safety briefing 9, lunch break after 4 stages (~noon), tear down ~3:30pm

        First time competitors/new to steel challenge 

        Please contact steel@btsa.club if you will be coming out for your first steel challenge. When you arrive, please leave all your gear in your vehicle and identify yourself to a match official/person in charge. We will place you on a squad with some experienced competitors to help get you started. We will likely need to split up groups of inexperienced shooters/competitors for both safety and efficiency but will try to keep families together where possible. Please note, when a family member is on the line, they are under the care of the range officer. Please do not distract them from following the RO’s instructions. If the RO is unfamiliar with the operation of your particular firearm, they will ask for assistance as needed. If a shooter would like coaching or advice while you are shooting, please let the RO know and they should be happy to oblige.

         

         

        A note regarding classifications

        Classifications are used to help competitors measure their success against shooter shooting with a similar ability and skill set. A D class production shooter and a Grand Master rimfire rifle open shooter can’t be equally compared. In order to earn a classification, you must be a current USPSA member and complete any 4 stages using one of the recognized equipment divisions. Most equipment will work with the exception of Center fire handguns from low ready.

         

        Rule book

        The official steel challenge rule book governs all of our matches please make sure to give it a read through so that you are familiar with the rules, commands, and equipment divisions.

        https://scsa.org/rules 

         

        Safety

        While no one wants to disqualify (DQ) a shooter, safety is our top priority. If you commit a serious safety infraction, as noted in the rules, you will be done shooting for the day. Any scores completed to that point will stand but you will not be able to continue shooting the match. It will be up to the match director’s discretion as to whether you may remain on the range. If you are permitted to remain to watch friends/family shoot, you may not handle any uncased firearms for the remainder of the day. Example of serious, DQ-able, violation include, but are not limited to, Ammo on the safe table, loaded firearms off the firing line, negligent discharge of a firearm, muzzle sweeping yourself or others, picking up a dropped gun, and dropping a loaded gun during a course of fire.

        Young Guns & Family Shoot Event

        If you are available on July 20 2024, and would be willing to assist with:

        • Registration, event operations, supervision (RO)
        • Teaching, training, mentoring
        • Food Services

        We are looking for both men and women to help make this day a success.

        Why should I volunteer?

        BTSA has always depended on its members to perform almost every task needed to make the club work. Historically that has included significant construction projects, every type of maintenance task, organization, and running of matches, courses, youth events, safety programs, not to mention every aspect of administrative work it takes to ensure our Club functions and thrives. Without our volunteers, range fees would be too costly for most people to afford. 

        There are many reasons why you should help out with this and other events that BTSA has to offer the community. BTSA has various activities throughout the spring, summer, and fall that involve inviting the community out to enjoy the shooting sports. BTSA also raises money through some of these events for various charities.  Without the help of volunteers, this can’t happen.

        All gear and ammunition will be provided by the club.

        Registration will start at 9:30 am, with activities at 10:00, running till 4pm.

        Participants must arrive on time in order to attend the safety briefing!

        It is $10 per participant, regardless of membership status, and we are also moving to a non-refundable upfront payment through our website, as we sell out each year but often have no-shows. All monies collected will be donated to the chosen charity at the end of the season.

        Registration has opened and a Waitlist has now been created.

        BTSA is holding an Women’s Only Introduction to Shooting on August 10, 2024 starting at 09:30.

        Registration opens June 1 

        Annie Oakley Day is open to women 14 years and older who have no (or very little) prior shooting experience.

        If you have wondered what the draw to shooting is, and wondered what happens when people go to the firing range - well, this is the clinic for you! We have planned an exciting day of introduction to shooting from “how do I get a firearm” - to the safety aspects of shooting - to getting out to the firing line to shoot firearms spanning in caliber from .22’s, 9mm to .223 and up. 

        There will be volunteers who are experienced shooters to help guide you through the day.  Be assured that your safety and comfort is our utmost priority, as well as having fun and the enjoyment of learning what shooting has to offer. 

        At the end of the day, you will be going home with a certificate of achievement to let everyone know what you have accomplished!

        If you already have experience with shooting – maybe you don’t have your PAL/RPAL, or your own firearm, but you have someone in your life that takes you shooting, already, this is not for you!  However, if that someone in your life hasn’t succeeded in getting you out to the range, then it is.  This event is for women who have a curiosity about shooting and firearms, but nowhere to explore or learn in a women’s-only environment.

        BTSA range bays 1,2,3,4,5. Shooters may drop their gear at the top but please park down the road or in the lot as parking at the top is needed for match staff. The main road gate and BTSA gates will be opened at about 8:00 am

        First time competitors/new to steel challenge 

        Please contact steel@btsa.club if you will be coming out for your first steel challenge. When you arrive, please leave all your gear in your vehicle and identify yourself to a match official/person in charge. We will place you on a squad with some experienced competitors to help get you started. We will likely need to split up groups of inexperienced shooters/competitors for both safety and efficiency but will try to keep families together where possible. Please note, when a family member is on the line, they are under the care of the range officer. Please do not distract them from following the RO’s instructions. If the RO is unfamiliar with the operation of your particular firearm, they will ask for assistance as needed. If a shooter would like coaching or advice while you are shooting, please let the RO know and they should be happy to oblige.

         

         

        A note regarding classifications

        Classifications are used to help competitors measure their success against shooter shooting with a similar ability and skill set. A D class production shooter and a Grand Master rimfire rifle open shooter can’t be equally compared. In order to earn a classification, you must be a current USPSA member and complete any 4 stages using one of the recognized equipment divisions. Most equipment will work with the exception of Center fire handguns from low ready.

         

        Rule book

        The official steel challenge rule book governs all of our matches please make sure to give it a read through so that you are familiar with the rules, commands, and equipment divisions.

        https://scsa.org/rules 

         

        Safety

        While no one wants to disqualify (DQ) a shooter, safety is our top priority. If you commit a serious safety infraction, as noted in the rules, you will be done shooting for the day. Any scores completed to that point will stand but you will not be able to continue shooting the match. It will be up to the match director’s discretion as to whether you may remain on the range. If you are permitted to remain to watch friends/family shoot, you may not handle any uncased firearms for the remainder of the day. Example of serious, DQ-able, violation include, but are not limited to, Ammo on the safe table, loaded firearms off the firing line, negligent discharge of a firearm, muzzle sweeping yourself or others, picking up a dropped gun, and dropping a loaded gun during a course of fire.

        The Black Badge is a two day in-depth training course in the safe competitive shooting techniques required not only to compete at IPSC events but to deliver the confidence and expertise to use handguns in the safest possible manner.

        It is a mandatory course required to shoot IPSC matches in Canada. IPSC is a dynamic shooting sport where the principles of Accuracy, Speed, and Power are balanced in a unique scoring system. 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.

        Basic equipment requirements: Pistol (minimum 9mm caliber), 3 magazines (preferably 4), 3 magazine pouches(preferably 4),  and a holster which must cover the trigger when the gun is holstered, a belt to mount the equipment on and 500 rounds of ammunition

        For further details and information, please contact Nick at nadraz@nucleus.com.

        Fees for this course are collected by the instructor. Cost of the course is $300.

          Young Guns & Family Shoot Event

          If you are available on September 21 2024, and would be willing to assist with:

          • Registration, event operations, supervision (RO)
          • Teaching, training, mentoring
          • Food Services

          We are looking for both men and women to help make this day a success.

          Why should I volunteer?

          BTSA has always depended on its members to perform almost every task needed to make the club work. Historically that has included significant construction projects, every type of maintenance task, organization, and running of matches, courses, youth events, safety programs, not to mention every aspect of administrative work it takes to ensure our Club functions and thrives. Without our volunteers, range fees would be too costly for most people to afford. 

          There are many reasons why you should help out with this and other events that BTSA has to offer the community. BTSA has various activities throughout the spring, summer, and fall that involve inviting the community out to enjoy the shooting sports. BTSA also raises money through some of these events for various charities.  Without the help of volunteers, this can’t happen.

          All gear and ammunition will be provided by the club.

          Registration will start at 9:30 am, with activities at 10:00, running till 4pm.

          Participants must arrive on time in order to attend the safety briefing!

          It is $10 per participant, regardless of membership status, and we are also moving to a non-refundable upfront payment through our website, as we sell out each year but often have no-shows. All monies collected will be donated to the chosen charity at the end of the season.

          The Outlaw Rimfire Precision Series (ORPS) is a national precision rimfire competition series that clubs and ranges can participate in on a monthly basis. A new 5-stage course of fire published each month and results are tabulated at the end of the month with national and provincial standings published. Series points will be awarded to each shooter that will count to the overall, annual leaderboard standings. 
          The series is limited to .22lr rimfire rifles and uses a standard target set and commonly available set of shooting positions and positional barricades. The series is designed to be shot on ranges with a 100yd distance. The matches are 5-stages in length with each stage having a maximum time limit of 120 seconds. Match round counts are 50-rounds per match or 10 rounds per stage. Distances are set distances of 25, 50, 75, and 100 yards with target sizes varying from ¼” to 6”.  A great way to hone some or learn some new rifle skills and have fun with fellow shooters while doing it. No experience required. Ladies and youth ( 18 & under) shoot for free.

          First time competitors/new to steel challenge 

          Please contact steel@btsa.club if you will be coming out for your first steel challenge. When you arrive, please leave all your gear in your vehicle and identify yourself to a match official/person in charge. We will place you on a squad with some experienced competitors to help get you started. We will likely need to split up groups of inexperienced shooters/competitors for both safety and efficiency but will try to keep families together where possible. Please note, when a family member is on the line, they are under the care of the range officer. Please do not distract them from following the RO’s instructions. If the RO is unfamiliar with the operation of your particular firearm, they will ask for assistance as needed. If a shooter would like coaching or advice while you are shooting, please let the RO know and they should be happy to oblige.

           

           

          A note regarding classifications

          Classifications are used to help competitors measure their success against shooter shooting with a similar ability and skill set. A D class production shooter and a Grand Master rimfire rifle open shooter can’t be equally compared. In order to earn a classification, you must be a current USPSA member and complete any 4 stages using one of the recognized equipment divisions. Most equipment will work with the exception of Center fire handguns from low ready.

           

          Rule book

          The official steel challenge rule book governs all of our matches please make sure to give it a read through so that you are familiar with the rules, commands, and equipment divisions.

          https://scsa.org/rules 

           

          Safety

          While no one wants to disqualify (DQ) a shooter, safety is our top priority. If you commit a serious safety infraction, as noted in the rules, you will be done shooting for the day. Any scores completed to that point will stand but you will not be able to continue shooting the match. It will be up to the match director’s discretion as to whether you may remain on the range. If you are permitted to remain to watch friends/family shoot, you may not handle any uncased firearms for the remainder of the day. Example of serious, DQ-able, violation include, but are not limited to, Ammo on the safe table, loaded firearms off the firing line, negligent discharge of a firearm, muzzle sweeping yourself or others, picking up a dropped gun, and dropping a loaded gun during a course of fire.

          The Outlaw Rimfire Precision Series (ORPS) is a national precision rimfire competition series that clubs and ranges can participate in on a monthly basis. A new 5-stage course of fire published each month and results are tabulated at the end of the month with national and provincial standings published. Series points will be awarded to each shooter that will count to the overall, annual leaderboard standings. 
          The series is limited to .22lr rimfire rifles and uses a standard target set and commonly available set of shooting positions and positional barricades. The series is designed to be shot on ranges with a 100yd distance. The matches are 5-stages in length with each stage having a maximum time limit of 120 seconds. Match round counts are 50-rounds per match or 10 rounds per stage. Distances are set distances of 25, 50, 75, and 100 yards with target sizes varying from ¼” to 6”.  A great way to hone some or learn some new rifle skills and have fun with fellow shooters while doing it. No experience required. Ladies and youth (18 & under) shoot for free.
