The RA Gun Club (RAGC) offers men and women a friendly and safe venue for both recreational and competitive shooting sports. Operating out of the only indoor range in Ottawa, the RAGC provides rifle and pistol shooters the opportunity to practice a variety of different disciplines, including a number of popular Olympic shooting events.

Members currently without a Firearms License (PAL) can join the Club and may shoot under the direct supervision of a licensed member, during their FIRST few months of membership. Shooting limitations may occur depending on the availability of licensed members. To increase shooting opportunities, members are encouraged to get their Firearms License (PAL) as soon as possible within the first 6 months. All returning members are required to have their Firearms License (PAL).

The Canadian Firearms Safety Course (CFSC) and the Canadian Restricted Firearms Safety Course (CRFSC) are offered monthly at the RA Centre, for those needing to obtain their Firearms License. Click Firearms Safety Education on the left for more information.

Do you need to own a firearm to join the RA Gun Club?
You do not need to own a firearm to join the RA Gun Club. The club owns a variety of firearms that are available for member use under club supervision, at no extra charge. Our inventory includes a number of .22 LR single shot target rifles, as well as air rifles, and a variety of .22 LR and centerfire pistols and revolvers. Eye and ear protection is available and mandatory. Club members are required to purchase targets and ammunition, with both being available in the range.

Members who only participate in air rifle and/or air pistol shooting disciplines and have no need to use club firearms, are exempt from PAL requirement, but must still register for and complete the respective internal club safety course(s).
