Centerfire Discussions / Sheldon Charron - Filmaker BR Documentary
« on: September 23, 2019, 12:03:43 PM »
Shooters,

We all know BR is perhaps one of the greatest shooting sports, and that everyone thinks they know about, but few understand the game outside of the current competitors. Sheldon has been active in the shooting sports for years and is also active in the filmaking world. Sheldon wants to get the word out about our game, having recently participated in a few shoots, he sees that there is a great story to be told, but it is not getting out to the world.

He has asked for our support in this project, in whatever amount you can spare to get this project off the ground. Check out the go fund me link:

https://www.gofundme.com/f/benchrest-documentary

I will be contributing, and I encourage everyone to contribute in a corporate, club or sanctioning body capacity. The future of the sport could use some assistance and this is but one way to get the word out.

Thanks for considering this.

Rick

Need your help to take this viral - PLEASE SHARE.
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
