The government wants to hear a diversity of views on how to reduce violent crime in Canada and whether a BAN ON HANDGUNS AND ASSAULT WEAPONS would be the best way to address the problem. Public consultation is open until November 10.
Police forces are implying that illegal 'illicit' firearms are coming from legal owners through theft or sales, hence the need to ban legal ownership of firearms in Canada.

Latest News and Discussions / Welcome to the F-Class and TR Section
« on: August 08, 2018, 02:19:17 PM »
One of the reasons benchrestforum.ca was created was to give BR shooters a place to communicate outside of the general firearms forums already in existence in Canada. To that end I felt it would helpful to create a place for F-Class and TR shooters to communicate among like minded competitors. Feel free to take advantage of this addition to the benchrestforum.ca

Club Events / Cactus Classic 2018
« on: March 14, 2018, 03:56:28 PM »
12 Canadians made the trek to Phoenix to participate in the 2018 Cactus Classic. Here is an excellent write up of the event by Ryan Neal:
--------------------------------
Thank you for coming out to shoot the 2018 Cactus Classic. We are thrilled to say that this match saw a total of 157 shooters this year, the largest that we have seen in quite some time! Shooters from as far away as Sweden came out to enjoy a mostly sunny week.
 
The first few days of practice saw quite  a bit of wind in the morning, but the rest of the week saw some pretty mild, even if sometimes switchy, conditions. We ended the week of practice on Friday night with a banquet where we gave away prizes that were donated to the match by various sponsors; including scopes, barrels, stocks, and more.
 
Saturday we started with Light Varmint 100 yards. Durward Wofford took match 1 with a 0.123, Keith Cottrell took match 2 with a 0.109, Dean Ekstrom took match 3 with a 0.102 which earned him small group for the LV-100, Peter Haxel took match 4 with a 0.105, and Joe Pipola took match 5 with a 0.120. Larry Baggett came in 3rd in the LV-100 agg with a 0.1856, Hugh Williamson came in 2nd with a 0.1834, and Jonas Sandberg came in 1st with a 0.1818.
 Wayne Miller came in 3rd with a 0.2220,
In the afternoon we shot Heavy Varmint 100 yards. Tom DeBacco took match 1 with a 0.095 which got him small group for the yardage, Gabriel Ledesma took match 2 with a 0.116, Lowell Frei took match 3 with a 0.104, Jack Childers took match 4 with a 0.129, and Greg King took match 5 with a 0.106. Keith Cottrell came in 3rd in the HV-100 agg with a 0.1976, Robert Seeman came in 2nd with a 0.1920, and Wayne Campbell came in 1st with a 0.1864.
 
Sunday morning’s weather took a turn and we ended up with pouring rain in the early morning. Unfortunately for the target crew, it was still pouring while they were putting in the targets. Luckily for our shooters, the rain calmed down by the time we started shooting. The rest of the day saw sunny and fairly calm conditions.
 
We shot Heavy Varmint 200 yards first on Sunday. William Marsh took match 1 with a 0.271, Dennis Wagner took match 2 with a 0.242, Dennis Thornbury took match 3 with a 0.201 which got him small group for HV-200, Richard Brensing took match 4 with a 0.209, and Dennis Thornbury took match 5 with a 0.252. In the HV-200 agg, Bob Scarbrough came in 3rd with a 0.1921, Dean Ekstrom came in 2nd with a 0.1867, and Wayne Campbell came in 1st with a 0.1731.
 
In the afternoon we shot Light Varmint 200 yards. Lester Bruno took match 1 with a 0.235, Paul Pennell took match 2 with a 0.241, Gabriel Ledesma took match 3 with a 0.253, Joel Nader took match 4 with a 0.121, and Jack Neary took match 5 with a 0.109 that got him small group for the yardage. For the LV-200 agg,  Jack Neary came in 2nd with a 0.1823, and Joel Nader came in 1st with a 0.1821.
 
For the Light Varmint grand agg, Jack Neary came in 3rd with a 0.2173, Joel Nader came in 2nd with a 0.2127, and Jonas Sandberg came in 1st with a 0.2042. For the Heavy Varmint grand agg, Dean Ekstrom came in 3rd with a 0.2189, Dave Gibson came in 2nd with a 0.2150, and Wayne Campbell came in 1st with a 0.1798. In the end for the 2-Gun grand agg, Andy Shifflett came in 5th with a 0.2331, Jack Neary came in 4th with a 0.2327, Dean Ekstrom came in 3rd with a 0.2308, Joel Nader came in 2nd with a 0.2188, and Wayne Campbell came away our 2018 Cactus Classic 2-Gun winner with a 0.2100.
 
Another big thank you for making the trip out here to Phoenix, we are thrilled that we had such a great showing this year and always appreciate you choosing the Cactus as one of your must-attend matches. We hope to see you next month for the April 7th-8th Unlimited 5-shot Season Closing Match.
