Welcome to Handguns!
shooting is the Bullseye discipline only, and is done under
the direction of qualified range officers. All handgun owners must be in possession of a
Possession & Acquisition License (PAL) for Restricted Firearms. New
handgun shooters are required by law to complete an 8-hour Handgun Safety Course
and pass both a written and hands-on test. After satisfactorily completing a
probationary period where club firearms are used under close supervision, new
members are sponsored for an ATT (Authorization to Transport). Only when
in possession of this ATT, can a new shooter transport his/her own handgun to
. . .
Our Handgun section promotes the sport of target handgun shooting in the metro area. We
stress the safe use of firearms and offer handgun safety
courses and range officer courses.
calibers of handgun (up to 44 magnums) are permitted - both
revolvers, and semi-automatics.
