Premier Shooting Center

PAL/RPAL

The Canadian Firearms Safety Course & Canadian Restricted Firearms Safety Course:

Commonly known as the Purchase and Acquisition License / Restricted Purchase and Acquisition License (PAL / RPAL)

At the Premier Shooting Center we want to provide a full service that supports all aspects of the sport to promote and grow interest and understanding and from that, to develop more shooters to enjoy the challenge and thrill that is the shooting sport

To that end, we feel that being part of the grass roots of the industry is where we can begin to share our vision and make the biggest impact in growing the sport. So here at the facility we offer courses for the Purchase and Acquisition License / Restricted Purchase and Acquisition License (PAL – RPAL)

safety-courseWe have aligned with a recognised individual that is sanctioned by the FIREARMS SAFETY EDUCATION SERVICE OF ONTARIO and has years of service in promoting and training young and old in the safety and handling skills necessary to achieve the license required to purchase and own a firearm.

The course will be the standard FIREARMS SAFETY EDUCATION SERVICE OF ONTARIO sanctioned course naturally and held within one of the spacious classrooms of the Premier Shooting Center club house. The classrooms have the facility of multimedia presentation options dependant on the instructor’s needs and course being delivered. The relaxed, comfortable feel of the classrooms put you at ease so that you can concentrate and be at your best to fully enjoy the courses. Regularly scheduled courses will be held during the weekday evenings and/or weekends that make sense to be convenient to your availability and outside of typical work hours. Refreshments and a brief tour of the center are offered just to get the blood pumping and energize you for the class but also to expand on your horizons of what aspects of the sport might appeal once you have your license.

In alignment with our efforts of providing the ‘next level’ service, Premier Shooting Center knows that as a new shooter you will be so excited to get out there onto the firing line and get to experience the sport of your choice, that we will extend an offer to become a member at the center once the PAL – RPAL passing grade has been achieved.

Yes, you pass the test and you don’t have to search other clubs or be put on a waiting list until the New Year and hope you are allowed to join…..pass your test and you will have the option to join the club immediately.

The key driver for us to offer this is that we want you to take that enthusiasm in the sport and propel it forward and not let it dwindle down during a lengthy wait on a list somewhere or have to endure weeks of probationary shoots and hope there is a qualified member there to sign off on your efforts but never having actually had any firing line training.

At Premier Shooting Center we have an excellent condensed induction development course for all new shooters and new club members that will take you through live fire exercises to give you positive feedback and develop your skills to take this interest to who knows what level! This is a very basic course for sure, done at a fun, leisurely pace but it leaves you with the key basic skills and competence that you can build on from there.
