Membership and Announcements Cape Nova


Wat does it need to become a member of our club?

The short answer is: you have to be at least 16 years old and you have to hold a valid Canadian Firearms Licence.
In order to get a firearms licence you have to pass a background check with the RCMP and you have to successfully complete a course and a test.
Well, and of course you have to comply with the values and regulations of our club.
We see our club’s teammates as friends.

Don’t forget: Safety is the highest priority at the range at any given time!

In 1902, the English politician and game shooting enthusiast Mark Hanbury Beaufoy wrote some much-quoted verses on gun safety, including many salient points.
If a sportsman true you'd be,
Listen carefully to me:
Never, never, let your gun,
Pointed be at anyone ...
Yes, these verses might be over hundred years old, be they are still very true in our days.
