The Port Bouvard Pistol & Small Bore Rifle Club (PBPC) caters for .22LR Field Rifle & Bench Rest Rifle disciplines plus handguns up to 9mm/.357/.38 caliber.
The rifle and bench rest sections conduct their own firearm safe handling programs for prospective members as required. However, those wishing to shoot hand guns must go through a more intensive ‘Handgun Safety Training Induction Program’ held over seven consecutive Saturday mornings. There are usually four such hand gun programs run each year and each program can only accommodate a maximum of ten applicants. Please contact the Club Secretary to ensure a place on the next hand gun training course.
There are currently no handgun training
course vacancies until May 2022
These sessions run for approximately 1.5 hours each and consist of both class training and live range shooting. You will be taught safety while on the range and must pass a written safety test at week 7. Prospective members are required to bring a completed membership application form, a National Police Certificate (or a copy of their current WA Firearms Licence), a passport photo or scanned passport style image of themselves and a $120 membership nomination fee to the first session.
New members who join to shoot rifle or bench rest disciplines but later wish to shoot hand guns will be unable to do so until they have first completed and passed the ‘Hand Gun Safety Training Induction Course’.
Members of other shooting clubs in WA, interstate or overseas may be accepted into the club without having to complete the full induction safety course. However, all new members must undergo a practical safety test prior to commencing shooting and demonstrate a suitable level of competency.
All applications for membership will be considered but not automatically accepted. Applicants must be of good character and reputation and provide a National Police Certificate (which can be applied for at a Post Office), or hold a current WA Firearms Licence.
