46.42. To be a member of a shooting club, the applicant must take a competency test in the safe practice of the sport of target shooting with restricted firearms or prohibited firearms and provide the operator with an attestation showing that the applicant has passed the test. The subjects covered by the test are determined by regulation of the Minister and the test is supervised by an instructor appointed by the Minister or appointed by a person designated by the Minister. The attestation is issued by the instructor.
With regard to the persons they test, instructors are subject to the same obligation to report unsafe behaviour as are shooting club members under section 46.43. Licence holders and persons responsible for shooting clubs or shooting ranges are subject to the same obligation to report unsafe behaviour as is provided for in section 46.31. These persons also enjoy the same protections as are granted in those sections.
The Minister may, by regulation, require members to take and successfully complete any form of training, at the times determined by the Minister.
