View Full Version : Ranges/Places to shoot in Brantford, Ontario area?

06-01-2012, 09:03 AM

So, I've got some cousins who live out in Brantford who have a bunch of archery equipment, I've got a couple rifles, and we were hoping to find a place in that area to go. I've been suggested to go to Silverdale, which does look like a really good place, especially since it's got both rifle and archery ranges, but it's around an hour and a half away!

Anyone know of a range closer to there that does both, or maybe an inactive gravel pit that we could use?

Actually, while I'm on that note, what is the legal status for plinking in an abandoned gravel pit? My firearms instructor told us that we could legally go into any gravel pit, that wasn't in use, and legally do some plinking. Looking around online I haven't seen anything that supports or denies that. D-:

Thanks for your help!

If the pit is on private land you need the land owner's permission, check for municipal bylaws regarding firearm discharges, also pack a small game hunting license (just in case).
