The Silvercore National Pistol Shoot - Why it was Created
Many of you may already know our story, but for those of you who don’t we wanted to provide you with more of a background as to who we are, why we started the Silvercore Gun Club and our intention behind the launch of our Silvercore National Pistol Shoot.
Silvercore started as a sole proprietorship over 20 years ago and then fully incorporated in 2003. The name Silvercore came from our founder’s grandparents, “Silver” Armeneau, and “Core” Cornelius Bader. Armeneau earned his living as a travelling motorcycle daredevil before becoming a decorated WWII veteran, and finally a Vancouver Police Detective. Bader immigrated from the Netherlands and became a successful entrepreneur, running Bader’s Dutch Cookies. To this day, Silvercore holds the core values of our namesakes.
Silvercore was the first company of it’s kind in Canada, delivering high-quality instruction to the general public as well as maintaining contracts with government and private industries in the fields of firearms training, consulting, program creation, and countrywide gunsmithing. Silvercore also created a sub-section of the company called the Silvercore Gun Club.
Why we Started the Silvercore Gun Club
The Silvercore Gun Club was born out of Silvercore’s desire to create a community of outdoors enthusiasts brought together by their love and enjoyment of shooting sports.
The club aims to unite the firearms community and to be a place of knowledge, as it shares industry-related updates and events to its members. The club also provides the valuable service of ensuring members keep up to date and in compliance with firearms legislation. This insurance allows affiliates to enjoy their desired shooting activities in a social environment while supporting different ranges across Canada.
Over the years, the club has grown to where we now offer insurance, a multitude of services, as well as nation-wide club sanctioned events for all of our members to participate in. The Silvercore National Pistol Shoot is an exciting milestone that our members all across Canada are able to participate in.
Why we Launched the Silvercore National Pistol Shoot
Previously, all of our events have been local to British Columbia and we received feedback that members across Canada also wanted to partake in Silvercore activities even though they live outside B.C.
Knowing this, we tailored the Silvercore National Pistol Shoot to be a mail-in event accessible to all of our members. This event, like all of our in-person events, includes a sense of community, friendly competition, and prizes. The only requirement we ask is that participants are members of our Silvercore Gun Club community. If you are not currently a member, you can register here.
We have a variety of items to giveaway for this event that have generously been donated by companies such as Drummond Shooting, Poco Military & Kent Outdoors, Dlask Arms, and Reliable Gun. Participants have a chance to win items such as:
- Post Topper Target Hangers
- A 6″ AR500 Round Target
