Ammo Restrictions for Indoor Range

There has been evidence of members using incorrect ammunition while shooting their centre fire handgun in the Indoor Range. Using the wrong ammunition will damage the target holders and backstop and poses an injury risk because of splashback.

This is a reminder that the Indoor Range is approved for centre fire handguns that meet the following criteria:

  • Target loads (non magnum loads)
  • LEAD bullets only.
  • No jacketed or semi-jacketed bullets.

Only  paper targets are permitted.
