Handgun Section Director


H.A.H.A  has 3 ranges, a covered 12/25 metre range, a Steel range and an IPSC (Action)  range.

The 12/25 m range is open to all handgun section members who have passed the club level Handgun Safety course. Those who have not had the course should contact the Section Chair.

Access to the Steel Range is granted to members who have passed the ATT course and have participated in the Steel Range orientation.  Access to the IPSC range is granted to persons qualified in a discipline such as IPSC, IDPA, PPC or other club approved disciplines on the approval of the Handgun Section Chair.

IPSC range use is to be in accordance with a recognized Action shooting discipline. Practice and Competition in such disciplines will take priority over other uses.

Current valid qualifications can be requested at any time by persons in authority. All shooters are required to swipe in each time they attend any of the 3 ranges. 

Any questions or concerns should be forwarded to the Section Chair at handgun@hahaclub.ca
