Who is eligible?

We only accept new member candidates with a valid PAL or RPAL.

What is required to complete the training?

  • A .22LR rifle and 300-500 rounds of ammunition will be required (if you don’t have a suitable rifle, one can be provided at additional cost).
  • Eye and hearing protection
  • Important: You must be available on two consecutive Sunday afternoons when new member training is scheduled. The classroom session and Practical Session #1 must be consecutive. The remaining two practical sessions need not be consecutive (although Sunday afternoon’s are preferred, other options may be available.)

The person scheduling your training will provide session dates. Class sizes are limited.
