The range opening planned for this weekend has been cancelled until further notice. We will supply more information here as it becomes available.
Nothing is normal at the moment as we have all become aware. Some good news as you may have heard we can now open our range, this while awesome news, also comes with very heavy restrictions which need to be adhered to during stage one Covid19 restrictions.
So whats going on? While the range may be “open” we can only have 10 members on the property at a time. Hence the soft opening, we need to have two Range Officers to run the range so that leaves 8 shooters at any one time and anyone else who arrives has to wait outside the gates for a shot. We have restricted range time to one hour per person this includes changing targets and setting up, each new detail will commence on the hour, so between 9am and midday we can only cater to 32 shooters and there will be a wait for everyone. Those waiting cannot come come through the gate’s and must practice social distancing while waiting outside preferably remaining in your cars.
A range officer will be at the gate to sign in each hourly detail, ensure you have your membership card and firearms licence ready to show the RO the order of entry will be the same as the order of signing in. The range is open to Coffs Harbour Branch members only at this time and we request that you bring correct money for the $10 adult sign in fee or $5 Junior fee, we will not be holding change. Shooters will be responsible for the placing and removing of their own targets only.
SSAA Coffs Harbour is your club and we are doing our best to allow our members some time shooting, please be patient and treat our volunteers with the utmost respect during this time.
In June we expect to be allowed more members on site but due to the 1.5m social distancing measure the range may still only be able to open 10 benches, we will advise here in due course.
Kindly refer to the calendar for shoot times and dates.
Stay safe, good shooting.
Dear Coffs SSAA members, as of now our range is closed for all regular shooting activities, we will not be operating until further notice.
This will be a good opportunity for the club to make repairs after the recent storm damage.
Those with concerns about attendances can contact the NSW Firearms Registry by email who will assess each on a case by case basis. Given that so far in 2020 we have had closures due to Fire, closures due to storm damage and now closure due to a Pandemic I would think that most members will have a reasonable argument. Do keep in mind though that the range was also available much of the time from March 2019.
Thanks for supporting your club and watch this space for any updates as we move through this testing time.
Let’s hope the sun rises soon on a better day.
Coffs Harbour SSAA range is still operational, please check in here on this site if you have any questions. Any and all changes to the range operations/OPEN and CLOSURES will be posted here as soon as is possible.
Results are in after another great weekend shooting at Coffs despite a bit of rain. Daily results are below, apologies but I didn’t get the two and 4 gun results but will post as soon as available.

A reminder to members that the range will be closed to general shooting this weekend 7th and 8th of March as we host the NSW State Hunter Championships.
Please check the website for updates for the following Wednesday and weekend also.
The humble fitty (fifty) shown here front and back is a cracker note and one we prefer to keep wholly on our person lest she be broken and the balance disappears. But out at the range where Eftpos does not exist we keep no cash, so we have no float…that is a float for your change. So should you turn up with a fitty instead of a portion of a fitty (like the typical range fee of $10) then we reserve the right to keeping the balance as a donation….;0) with thanks.
Otherwise bring correct weight haha!!
Range fees are $5 per junior, $10 per adult and $15 per visitor, please bring correct money as we hold no money at the range.
The first silhouette day of the year is this Sunday 9th Feb at midday, it’s rimfire and a lot of fun get amongst it….kill that chicken!
