Matches at the Connaught Ranges
Each year, two matches of interest to members of the A&DRRA are held at the Connaught Ranges, presented by the NDHQRA (National Defence HQ Rifle Association) and the NCRRA (National Capital Region Rifle Association). These are the Victoria Day pistol matches, held on or near the Victoria Day weekend, and the Fall Invitational pistol match or Fall Shoot, held around late September.
Both matches feature a wide range of events, including:
- NRA Canadian 1800
- ISSF Standard Pistol
- ISSF Sport or Centrefire Pistol
- ISSF Air Pistol
- ISSF Free Pistol
- PPC 1500
- PPC Slug Gun (shotgun)
- PPC Snub (prohibited snubnose)
- 9mm Service Pistol
Because Connaught is a military range and not approved by the CFO, your regular ATT is not valid to use to transport your firearms to the range. A short-term ATT must be obtained from the CFO in advance of the match.
Reasonable fees are charged on a per-match basis and prizes are offered.
You can get details and register online at www.targetscores.com. Results of previous matches are also posted on that site.
Each year, the Canadian Shooting Sports Association (CSSA) sponsors its Winter League Postal Matches (a postal match means that the results are mailed in, and has nothing to do with "going postal"!). Open to all Ontario pistol shooters, Arnprior as an indoor heated range is one of the locations used to host these matches.
Matches are offered in the following disciplines:
- ISSF Standard Pistol 600
- ISSF Sport Pistol 600
- ISSF Centre Fire / Sport Pistol 600
- PPC 1200
There is a $10 fee per match. At least three match scores within a discipline must be mailed in (which is done by the club) in order to qualify for prizes and classification.
Due to a lack of particpation, the CSSA is no longer offering the Winter League Matches. Arnprior is offering the Red Doolittle Memorial Pistol Matches in their place.

The Ottawa Valley Pistol League (OVPL) formed in 1960 among local pistol shooting clubs, organizes an annual friendly competition between its members, with the winning club adding its name to the competition trophy. The Arnprior club is a founding member and enthusiastic competitor.
The matches are held from the late fall, through the winter and into late spring, with each club shooting twice against the others; once as host and once as visitor. During the winter months, the Arnprior club — being an indoor range — is used for many of the matches, as is the RA club.
Regardless of how many shooters compete for a club's team, only the four best scores are used in the match results. For this reason, new shooters (or even long-time shooters who may not be that good!) need not worry about competing in the events. A poor result will not do any harm to the club's score.
Match fees for 2019-2020 remain at $5. First-time shooters and juniors shoot for free.
