Welcome to WSSC
The Wentworth Shooting Sports Club is a non-profit organization incorporated June 23, 1975 and registered with the Province of Ontario
As this is a handgun club we allow any handgun caliber of firearm as long as it does not do any damage to the range. We also allow rifles that are chambered for pistol caliber e.g. 22 to 45 colt, etc. Shotguns are not allowed on retractable targets but on a limited basis (later during the time period we are open, when there are empty ports available on either side of the port where the shotgun is to be used). Only lead shot is allowed, no slugs or steel shot.
Membership is open to women and men on an individual or family basis who have a valid PAL, which has a restricted firearm classification. We also offer a junior membership for those up to 18 years old whose parent is a member of our club.
Firearms will be made available for use by any probationary or full member any time the club is open, to be used at the club at no cost. You do not need to own a gun to become a member. You need only to buy targets and ammunition.
The club is currently run by a 15 member Board of Directors, elected each year at the Annual General Meeting. The Board of Directors, through monthly meetings, governs the operation of the club and all financial matters.
