Because you guys are looking to shoot rifles, it might not be impossible. We have rifle ranges near Montreal where I am based, that don't look very closely at who is shooting. It is not like handgun in that you needn't be members, but just pay for per range, or per hour, or per gun, depending on the formula.
What you need to do is find a couple of real shooters who are willing to chaperone you guys, people who have a few guns, because range rentals are ridiculously expensive, and you have to get your minds around the idea of holding your stag on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon out in the sticks, instead of in Toronto by night.
But as for you personally, seeing that you have the latent interest, why don't you come down to any one of the clubs and do your safety courses? If you are attracted to the sport, do it!
Assuming that you were willing to invest a couple of afternoons in the saftey courses, I am positive that there are guys on this board who would be pleased to facilitate your further initiation to whatever branch of the sport you might prefer.
