So I met Chris and his wife Bec when they attended their firearms safety training, later they both became Range Officers and dedicated volunteers for our club, I didn’t know it then but Chris is a bit of an computer guru dude, to say he is a Super Geek would have been correct up until recently when after 15 years as a real Super Geek he became Super IT Solutions he is mobile, local, a shooter and can make it so your computer behaves itself for a change, he is a club member and a Range Officer so if you need a guy to help with the stuff that makes you wanna pull hair when you just want to share a photo on your laptop give him a call. Let him know you are an SSAA Coffs Harbour member too …. Chris the IT guy 13 86 26
This Sundays Midday Rimfire session 18th July 2019 is cancelled sorry due to half of our range officers out for First Aid training, I hope to hold a make-up shoot in the coming weeks if I can get some range officers keen.

Kerry is going on a well deserved fishing break and Coffs Guns will be closed from the 15th till the 24th of September 2019.
So today was day one at the show and it was pretty busy, lots of new shooters and lots of them shooting amazingly as well, check the photos below these are a 5 shot targets. The show has heaps of cools stuff for campers and outdoorsy types and its only $12 entry, kids are free. There is no charge to shoot at the air rifle range so head down and say gidday.
Sunday the 21st September Midday Rimfire is Silhouettes! yep rimfire silhouettes are back. Set up will start at 12 and shooting once we’re set up!
Targets: 5 chickens at 40 yards, 5 pigs at 60 yards, 5 Turkeys at 77 yards and 5 rams at the 100. You get 5 shots at each distance with a best score of 20 points per round and we have 3 rounds so best out of 60.
We can only shoot .22 lead bullets at steel targets, dont bring copper plated ammo we cant let you shoot it. No exceptions, so check your ammo is black and not gold.
Bring your rest or a bag and put it on the bench to sit your rifle on between distances, we will shoot 3 rounds first off a rest than from elbows and 3rd standing unsupported . You can shoot lever, pump or bolt action scoped or open sights and it’s best to have a handle on your holdover, there’s a bit of difference between 40 and 100 yards with a 22.
Shooters will pair up, one shooting and one scoring rotating after each round.
We each are responsible for setting up our targets, resetting the targets and for bringing them poor little shot up fellas home at days end, so if you dont wanna walk up the range and set up or help out then dont come because we’re not gonna do it for ya! ;0)
Other stuff: The club has purchased an additional 4 sets of silhouettes so we have now 6 full sets, given the irregular terrain we have also bought a bunch of pine sleepers to set the targets up on.
You could be forgiven for missing the new wall linings and new ceiling in our clubhouse, it fits in so well. But I’m guessing you won’t miss the new lighting installed today!! Super low usage LED panels and a few LED downlights have transformed the room. Our club injecting the range fees back into our club facilities making it one of the best ranges in the state. Watch this space there is more to come, see you out there for a shot soon hey!
