Guns & Roses
Our inaugural Guns & Roses event was held in 2017 under the guidance of Bill Solberg. The idea was that if we could provide instruction, guns that fit women (not your husbands gun) and a safe, friendly and fun environment, we may be able to introduce more women to the sport of shotgun shooting. Italian Sporting Goods immediately joined in as our sponsor and we have had many fun and successful events in the past few years.
Since then we have grown from a group of 10 to over 200 ladies on our mailing list and there are now 5 Level 1 instructors and a fantastic support team setting the course. Eventually our goal is to have a ladies shooting league at Vancouver Gun Club. We host one event per month so keep an eye on the website as the dates will be posted there. Guns, ammo and instruction are all provided. Just bring a sense of adventure and a sense of humour and we will have a blast!
HERE'S WHAT SOME OF OUR PARTICIPANTS FROM PREVIOUS COURSES HAVE HAD TO SAY
MY GRANDDAUGHTER LOVED IT!!!
Just wanted to let everyone know. I have been a member at VGC for a number of years and have known Terri for pretty much all of those years. I had my 13yr old granddaughter out to see how she liked shooting a while back and she fell in love with it almost immediately. I thought, well I'll put her in the next Guns'n Roses and see how that goes. She had shot less than a box of shells previously but I knew she could handle it. I stayed away from the course and let her go out on her own. I wanted her to have the same experience as any other new shooter would without Poppa looking over her shoulder. She had my friend James whom she had never met before this as her instructor. As I stood watching her walk back to where I was waiting for her the smile on her face said it all. She can't wait to do it again.
MY NEPHEW AND I HAD AN AMAZING TIME!!!
My nephew and I had an amazing time on Saturday! It was my nephews first time shooting and he loved it! And we thought Rob was an amazing instructor !!
We will be back again soon and maybe with more family members ;)
Thanks again for a super fun afternoon!
HAD AN EXCELLENT TIME!!! WE'LL BE BACK!!!
I just wanted to say a huge thanks to yourself and all your instructors for putting on such a fun day of shotgun shooting.
My husband and myself had an absolute blast. Kevin was a great coach and we learned a lot. We will definitely be getting into trap shooting on a regular basis.... you have converted us This was our first time ever, and it won't be our last!
So thank you again, and please pass along our thanks to the rest of your team.
Have an awesome weekend!
I JUST WANTED TO LET YOU KNOW I HAD SUCH A GREAT DAY YESTERDAY!!!
I just wanted to let you know I had such a great day yesterday. Cam was a fantastic instructor. I love his style. He's very good. Truly passionate about the sport and loves sharing his knowledge. He's also forthright and no nonsense which I loved. No ego taking over, just very good coaching. Specific, directed, non intimidating and supportive. He was really fun.
I'll be back for more to work on my technique when my fat lip calms down.
COMMENTS FROM PREVIOUS COURSES
THE COACHING IS FABULOUS
The Guns & Roses events are my favourite way to spend a Saturday afternoon. Whether you have never shot a gun before or have been involved in shooting sports for years, there is always something to learn. The coaching is fabulous, tailored to individual needs, and everyone gets equal time behind the shotgun and on the targets, regardless of experience or goals. The members at the Vancouver Gun Club are welcoming and make you feel right at home. I highly recommend checking it out!

THE CLUB HAS CREATED A FUN, SAFE AND WELCOMING ATMOSPHERE
Having my first sporting clay experience with Guns & Roses was the spark that ignited my passion for the sport. The Club has created a fun, safe, and welcoming atmosphere with excellent instructors that work with all levels of experience. Learning from the ground up has given me the confidence, and more importantly, the fun to continue to grow in this hobby with so many new friends. I always look forward to the next event.
I HAD SUCH A GREAT AFTERNOON
I had such a great afternoon at the Guns & Roses event! The event was well organized, we got to shoot in small groups and the instructors were great coaches. The course itself was also really fun with multiple stations and targets to practice different angles. I'm really looking forward to going back!
AN AWESOME EXPERIENCE
It was an awesome experience. I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about it, now I can’t wait for another opportunity to try it again. I keep thinking of friends I want to take!
