Anybody navigated the requirements for setting up your own shooting range on the farm? I'm wanting to be able to target shoot with a handgun on my own farm in Alberta but haven't been able to find much current info as to the requirements.
I don’t really get why it’s illegal to discharge a restricted firearm on private property, pistols anyway, not sure if there’s any long rifles that are restricted in Canada besides auto AR type rifles.
An errant bullet from my 300 mag rifle is way more dangerous than one from my 9 mm pistol.
The effective killing range (for lack of a better word) is way less with a pistol.
Going by last post I can explain myself. I have a 22 revolver and several 22 rifles. Is there any other caliber these days that’s in both firearms?
Someone around here has been shooting cans and targets for years on his property with hand guns.... i think but I’m not sure, just speculating.
.223 has gotten cheaper lately, on a good sale it can be had for 0.32 a round. hardly a point in anything between 22lr and .223 at this point. 22wmr is more expensive per round then it. 7.62x39 is still cheaper but unless im planning to shoot 300+rds in an afternoon its hardly worth cleaning the corrosive off.
pretty much any pistol round can be had in a pistol caliber carbine nowadays. 22lr,9mm, 357, 40, 10mm, 45
