Successful completion of this Canadian firearms course allows you to apply for a Possession and Acquisition License (PAL). Before 1995, this was known as a Firearms Acquisition Certificate (FAC).

There are two levels of Firearms license – Non-Restricted and Restricted.

The non-restricted course (rifles and shotguns) is on Saturday (with some testing on Sunday) and the restricted course (handguns) is on Sunday (testing on Sunday). You are advised to read the manual and memorize ACTS and PROVE (the safety procedure for handling firearms) before the course.

There are a limited number of student spaces in each course. (Some courses fill up fast)

If you wish to register for a course, you will pay a deposit; at that time your seat in the course will be reserved.

Registration at least 5 days before the course is recommended to provide adequate time to read the manual.

The cost of the non-restricted course is $100 including the test and the cost of the restricted course is $100 including the test. Both courses taken on one weekend are $175.

Manuals  may be purchased from us for $20 in book form or are available on-line at:

Please call or text for information or to register for a course. We can accommodate those who work on the weekend or have a limited time in Penticton by holding a special course on a date that is suitable - please call.
