Club Information

__________________________________________________________


    Although we are not a "Pay as you Shoot" facility, we do offer to those that are serious about the possibility of becoming a member, the opportunity to come out to our club to observe and ask questions.

Bill C-68

  

   With Canada's new gun control legislation (Bill C68) all individual's who own registered handguns and other restricted/prohibited firearms will have to re-register their firearms by December 31, 2002. If you previously registered a gun with target shooting as your stated purpose for acquiring the gun, you will need to belong to a certified gun club and get an Authorization to Transport in order to keep your guns.

   We can help you to comply with the new regulations and keep your firearms. We have Canadian Restricted Firearms Safety Course trainers and examiners affiliated with the Club so that you will be able to become qualified to apply for a firearms Possession and Acquisition Licence. We can also help you to successfully register or re-register your firearms.

   The process for obtaining a handgun for target shooting in Canada can seem long and complicated. However, it is well worth the effort as once all of the red tape is dealt with, you will be able to enjoy a very rewarding, challenging and fun sport.

Q. What is "Bullseye" shooting ?

A.  One of the shooting disciplines found at the Niagara Falls Revolver Club is the NRA Gallery Pistol Course (Bullseye). This is comprised of three individual stages.  Each stage firing 10 rounds, at a distance of 50 ft; with varying amounts of time allowed to complete each stage.

Slow fire:
 

   The standard 30-shot course of fire begins with 10 shots of slow fire. In the slow-fire stage you're given 10 minutes to fire 10 shots. The 10-ring on the target is 23 cm. (3/4?) in diameter.


Timed Fire:
 
   After the slow-fire course is complete, then 10 shots are fired in five-shot strings with 20 seconds allowed for each five- shot string. The 10-ring on this target is 46 cm. (1 3/4?) in diameter.

   Unlike other handgun sports that use a hand-held timer, in bullseye each target rotates to and from the shooter to regulate the timing. As the shooters prepare to fire, only the edge of the target is visible. The target rotates to face the shooter when shooting is to begin. The target rotates away when time has expired.


Rapid Fire:

   The shooters score, out of a possible 300, is the sum of his or hers three targets.
