Welcome to the Arnprior and District Rifle and Revolver Association website!
We have reopened the range with new Stage 1 restrictions, primarily that the clubhouse area is closed.
Members and their guests may use the range at their own risk. Access may be limited for those without keys since many members will not be attending. See the sign posted on the range door for more information.
- Maintain social distancing of 2 metres.
- The clubhouse is closed except for access to the washroom and the range. If you need to wait outside the range, you must either do so outside or in your vehicle.
- At least one empty position must be left between shooters in the range.
- We will try to provide soap and water and bleach in spray bottles, as well as the soap in the washroom. Use them. The onus is on you to protect yourself each time you use the range. Wipe down shared surfaces you are going to touch as needed.
Located in Arnprior, Ontario, Canada, the A&DRRA has members living throughout the Ottawa valley. The club was established on August 23, 1957.
With six lanes for shooters, removable as needed for PPC or other disciplines, the club specializes in various forms of target shooting, with the emphasis on safety and accuracy. Most of our shooting is traditional bullseye style, shooting one-handed and standing unsupported.
We have been active in the Ottawa Valley Pistol League since its beginning in 1960, competing in the annual bullseye competition between local member shooting clubs. We also host the annual Red Doolittle Memorial Pistol Matches during the months between October and March, open to all competitors.
During the summer months, we host a club barbeque featuring an entree provided by the club, with members bringing salads, desserts, and other fixings, as well as their own drinks and chairs. This family-friendly event is well attended, as is our Christmas wine and cheese party — although that one is held in the warmth of the clubhouse! No firearms are permitted at the range during such social events, of course.
If you think you would be interested in becoming a member of the club, please explore the site and then Contact Us. Potential new members are welcome to drop in Monday or Tuesday evenings to see and learn about the lifetime sport of bullseye shooting.
To get to the club, take the White Lake Road exit. Turn to the right (towards Arnprior, if coming from Ottawa) and go down Daniel Street to the second set of lights, at Baskin Drive. Turn left and follow Baskin Drive until it becomes a big sweeping curve to the right. This curve is actually where Baskin Drive becomes Division Street. About halfway around the curve, you will see Division Street as a turn to your left, where it goes to the clubhouse. Turn left here and follow it to the ramp that goes over 417. The road to the clubhouse is on the left on the rise of the ramp; turn left and follow the road down and around to the clubhouse -- the concrete block building with the red door. There is a standard green-and-white address sign with "474" on it at the entrance.
The club does not own any firearms. No guns or ammunition are stored on the premises.
