Kelowna & District
Except for IPSC Ranges, Adult Members can bring Guests to any Club Range they, themselves, are authorized to use.
Maximum of 2 Guests. All Guests must be kept under direct and immediate supervision at all times. All Guests must be at least 10 years old to be on a Archery, Rifle, or Shotgun Range and at least 12 years old to be on a Pistol Range. All Guests must be issued a Guest Pass by the sponsoring Adult Member PRIOR to proceeding to a Range.
*Important Note: Unregistered persons on KDFGC ranges are trespassing. All guests (shooting or observing) must be registered and supervised by a KDFGC Adult member.
Guest paperwork and passes are available at the Guest Registration building. With a Guest Pass, the Club's insurance is extended to the Guest.
There are two types of Guests: Shooters and Observers.
Guest Shooters, under the direct and immediate supervision of the sponsoring Member, can be on the Range's firing line and shoot Firearms. There is a fee for Guest Shooters. This fee will be refunded if the Guest becomes a Club Member within 30 days of their visit. Guest Shooters must have their orange Guest Shooter pass visible at all times.
Guest Observers, under the direct and immediate supervision of the sponsoring Member, must stay behind the safety line (or at least three feet behind the firing line) at all Ranges. Observers are not allowed to handle firearms at any point on Club property. Guest Observers must have their orange Guest Observer pass visible at all times.
As per the Canada Firearms Act, Guests do not need to have a PAL to shoot at a Range if they are under the “direct and immediate supervision” of a Club Range Officer or an adult Member with the appropriate PAL and Range certification.
If bringing more than two Guests at one time, the Member must contact the Club Office and arrange for a Club Range Officer to supervise.
Don’t forget to return the Guest Pass and Lanyard to the Guest Registration Building when finished. There is a recovery fee if the pass is not returned.
