Do I need a Firearms License (PAL) in order to shoot at the Wascana Pistol Club?
No. A Possession & Acquisition License (PAL), is only necessary to purchase and own your own firearms. While proper training and licensing is always beneficial, patrons may rent a firearm and use the range without first acquiring a PAL. All that is required to shoot is that you first attend a firearm safety & handling orientation.
Can I take my leftover ammo home?
That depends. If you have your Firearms License (PAL) and are transporting the ammo according to Federal Gun Law then you may absolutely take your ammo home with you. If you do not have your Firearm License (PAL), then all ammo must be retained and shot at the range.
I’m new to firearms. Is somebody there able to help me get started?
All new shooters at the club are required to attend a full orientation on safety procedures, as well as how to handle & operate the firearms that are available for rental. Come down by 7:00pm on any Tuesday or Thursday night, and there is generally a whole group of new shooters that you can join in beside, and learn with. Please see the Info for New Shooters page
How much does it cost?
The cost to participate is only $25/person (taxes included). This price includes the $15 range fee, firearm rental, and ear & eye protection, 50 rounds of .22 caliber ammunition, and targets.
For our full price chart, please see our Prices page.
What sort of ammunition is allowed for use at the Wascana Pistol Club?
1) Lead or plated bullets only (no jacketed, half jacketed or gas checked bullets). If you have questions, ask anyone on the executive for clarification.
2) Smokeless powder loads only. (No black powder or black powder substitutes.) The air filtration system is not capable of filtering the smoke generated and BP and substitutes can generate embers that represent a fire hazard.
Who can I contact about booking group events at the Wascana Pistol Club?
Please forward all questions to any member of the executive at the pistol club, or call 543-8155. (Messages are only checked on Tuesdays and Thursdays.)
I have a large group. How many people do you permit in the club at a time?
We have 10 shooting lanes available. Larger groups may simply rotate through until everyone has has a chance.
Can I help out in any way?
If you are looking for something to do on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, and you have your restricted firearms license, come down and volunteer.
Where is the Wascana Pistol Club located?
The club is located at 190 Winnipeg Street North, Regina.
