Shooting Styles

Handgun - IPSC

IPSC (action shooting) is dynamic and challenging, and one of the fastest growing shooting sports in the world today. Courses of fire utilize many aspects not found in the other more traditional shooting disciplines, such as movement by the shooter, drawing from the holster, moving targets, multiple targets, and the freedom for the shooter to solve the shooting problems presented by the stage design.


Small Bore

Small bore rifle shooting encompasses three disciplines: 50 meter Sporting rifle, Silhouette rifle, and 10 meter Air rifle.  Sporting and Silhouette rifle are both done on the outdoor range at the Prince George Rod and Gun during the snow-free season, and Air rifle is conducted on the indoor range primarily during the winter months. 


Big Bore

The Prince George Rod and Gun Club operates two big bore, or center-fire rifle ranges, at the Hartman Road facility. The firing point provides for shooting at ranges of from 25, 50 or 100 yards on one range and 200 yards on the other. 



Silhouette rifle uses .22 caliber rifles with scopes mounted on them in this arcade-like shooting game. The targets consist of steel plate silhouettes of chickens, pigs, turkeys, and rams at the respective distances of 40 meters, 60 meters, 77 meters, and 100 meters.


Black Powder

If you are looking for a shooting sport which enjoys an exemplary safety record, has room for participants at every level of experience and imagination, and which will add a level of enjoyment which is not to be found any other way, find out more about the Black Powder section of the PGRGC. You will soon be involved -"lock, stock, and barrel"!  



The Shotgun section of our shooting styles includes Sporting Clays and Trap Shooting.

The TRAP SHOOTING section of the Prince George Rod & Gun Club is affiliated with the Pacific International Trapshooting Association (PITA).  The trap shooting facilities are located at the PGRGC Hartman Road range, west of the city of Prince George, BC.


The SPORTING CLAYS target game began in Britain and Europe as an approximation of field shooting for birds and small game, such as rabbits.  Unlike the shouldered gun when a trap shooter calls for the “bird,” the SC shooter must start with the butt of the shotgun below the shoulder.
