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.

Vic Swindlehurst passed away a few years ago. He made somewhere around 100+ actions. They are a solid action to build BR rifles on, although you don't see as many around anymore. There was a steel version, and an aluminum and steel version same idea as a Panda. Action alone will be +/- $1000 CDN.

Couple more photos.

George Carter, Bill MItchell and Hugh Williamson with their winnings.

Then a photo of a very foggy range that caused a significant delay and we had the finish the afternoon aggregate the following morning.

Back home! A long drive but well worth it. Canadians had a tremendous showing. Hugh Williamson won the HV Grand and won 2 Hall of Fame points for those efforts and was second in the 3-Gun. Bill Mitchel had a great shoot winning the HV 200 and claiming a Hall of Fame point as well.

Full results here:

Many personal bests were set, and two possible BRSC International records will be sent to the record committee.

Sorry I didn't get a lot of pictures. Below is Dean Weger at the bench, and then Wayne Campbell and Hugh Williamson who finished 1,2 in the 3-Gun.

Now for some sleep....

Gang,

Here are the results post the NBRSA Nationals in Holton, Michigan. 20 Canadians were at this match working very hard to accumulate enough points to qualify for the Canadian World Team in 2019. It was a hard fought contest and I am very proud of the efforts of all our shooters. Canadians will have 3 very formidable teams in Calgary.  I expect this will be the final standings, and letters of invitation to join the World Team will be sent out to the top 12 shooters.

Last shoot of 2018 at Rosebud is in the bag. Bit of a cool weekend with the morning temperature on the first day at -1C! It did eventually struggle all the way to 13C. None the less a good weekend. Thanks to all our helpers this season, and of course thanks tot he Rosebud Club for the terrific facilities. Look forward to seeing everyone next year.

Results attached.
