: I have a question for anyone with info out there who can lend a hand.
: I have recently taken the role of VP-Iqaluit shooting Association.
: This was an active group up until about 8 years ago when the city took the range because it needed a gravel quarry. We are now in the process of getting the city to allot us spoace for a new range.
: Thus we need all the hlp we can get to avoid the pitfalls. Note this is an outdoor range .. But we hope to have lanes for both restricted and non restricted firearms.
: Any advice would be greatly appreciated, escpecially, on insurance, membership requirements and range certification and inspections..
WHo owned the quarry in the first place....was it city property that you used ...or was the property expropriated...
Answers to these questions can deterime who pays... Its too bad no action was taken when the use of the range was lost in the first place.. It would be easier to deal with now...
However to bulid a new range you wil have to comply with the regualtions in C68 and as interpreted by the CFO for you area. You must have plans drawn up, and approved before construction can begin.
I really feel for you on this I was Secretary tresurer of our club when we had to make reparations to stay a certified range. the regs for new ranges are really hideous.. Good Luck
