CHS Night Shoot & Demo Event - Taber Alberta - April 29

We are pleased to partner with Taber Shooting Foundation for an NVG/Thermal demo and IPSC/USPSA-style night match on April 29, 2023. The event will feature one IPSC/USPSA-style stage, and one static shooting line, and an opportunity to demo and use NVGs and thermals in a competitive and friendly timed shoot. This is not a formal match and is not ranked.
