WRPC members who want to initiate the process to obtain their Handgun Proficiency Status, which will allow them to shoot their centre fire handgun in the Indoor Range, should take this opportunity to register for the Handgun Proficiency Clinic on Sunday November 27, 2016.
Using .22 cal handguns only, participants will learn the range safety standards for the indoor range, develop proper handgun shooting techniques, practice safe loading, discharge and reload, correct poor bullet placement, and have some fun as well.
Participation is limited to 12 WRPC members. Registration fee of $20 covers ammunition and targets. To sign up, please complete the information below.
The Whitehorse Rifle & Pistol Club has been involved with delivering the Canadian Firearms Safety Course (CFSC) since the creation of the program. The disabled non-restricted shotguns and rifles that are used in this course were well used at the time they were acquired, but the actions still functioned. Now, after 20 plus years of handling and working those actions, these firearms have really passed their “best before date”. Course participants are met with frustration when trying to learn how to safely use a firearm, when it does not cycle the ammunition as it should.
The club would like to refurbish the inventory of disabled non-restricted firearms. At the most we will require two of each of the following action types: Break or Hinge Action, Bolt Action, Pump Action (shotgun preferred), Lever Action, Semi-automatic (22 LR preferred). The club will assume the costs associated with disabling the firearms according to the standards of the program.
If you have a firearm that you are willing to contribute please submit your contact information and type of firearm through the “Contact Us” tab to email@example.com
The entire range will be unavailable for shooting during the day Monday September 19 AND Thursday September 22 from 8:30 AM to approximately 4:00 PM.
During this time brush grooming equipment will be working in front of the firing line on all range areas in order to clear the overgrowth. This is necessary to maintain a clear line of sight for safety of all members and users.
Regular range activities will resume after 4:00 PM.
Many thanks to all the Range Safety Officers who have volunteered their time to ensure a safe shooting environment during the public access evenings this summer.
There are two Thursday evenings remaining in September for the public to access the outdoor range with the final evening being Thursday September 22nd, 2016. Two Range Safety Officers are on duty to ensure compliance with range rules.
While the range is generally open between 7 pm and 9 pm on Thursday evening be prepared for an earlier closure as the available daylight disappears quickly at this time of the year.
Public Access to the outdoor range will start again in May 2017.
All membership cards up to June 30th, 2016 have now been processed. Due to the uncertainty with Canada Post at this time, these cards are available for pick up at the Sportslodge.
Have a great day.
