Section 14 – 1 of the Federal Firearms Regulations – Update
All users of the Henry Range and restricted/prohibited firearms must possess a valid PAL or register their name and address for our files.
Rick Gammon has offered to check usurers of the range for this information.
All guests and visitors will need to sign in with either their PAL number (if they possess one) or name and address.
This is basically what we have currently.
Starting with 2018 membership renewals, all purchasers of a range key for use of the range for restricted or prohibited firearms must supply their membership number as well as their PAL number. The club will record this but it is for our files only and to meet the regulations of the Act. It will not be shared with other organizations, such as the BCWF, or any commercial entity but be retained within our club. This information will be kept for a period of 6 years as required by the regulations.
If the range user states he or she will not be using the range for restricted or prohibited firearms then the PAL will not be recorded.
If a member does decide to use it, they will be considered a visitor/guest until they register with our volunteer range person.
Rick will continue to spot check users but will have a list, by membership number, of those having registered their PAL. There would be no need to show it again at our range.
The procedures for guests and visitors will remain the same requiring the PAL from those possessing one or name and address for our records.
