Join Canada’s gun club!
Joining the Silvercore Shooting Club, commonly referred to as the Silvercore Club, has many benefits. Not only are we accepted in all provinces and territories across Canada, we also offer:
- No waiting list for becoming a member
- Regular draws, giveaways and discounts from Silvercore.
- Regular discounts and promo’s from various retailers.
- Annual members-only fun shoot including grand raffle prizes.
- Members-only firearms storage services (first month free!).
The Silvercore Club was the first gun club in Canada, that received official RCMP approval for the issuance of ATT's. We have been successfully operating our club since 2007 and have undergone numerous RCMP screenings and approvals since then. Besides all the benefits already listed above, joining us gives you the peace of mind that your membership is backed and will not end with you on the wrong side of the law.
As a not-for-profit organization, our club supports our local ranges and communities by introducing our members to the many fine shooting establishments across Canada. Silvercore has helped members from all different backgrounds come together under a common interest. By joining our gun club, you will meet the Canadian Firearms Programs (CFP) issuance requirements in order to obtain a Long Term Authorization to Transport (ATT). With your valid ATT you will be in compliance with the CFP's requirements for restricted firearms purchase, possession and transport.
What you'll receive:
- A certified Silvercore club membership letter and wallet sized card,
required proof for the issuance of your Authorization to Transport (ATT).
- $10 million of North America Wide Liability Insurance, incl.
a formal letter of coverage for those that require it.
- Discounts from participating retail outlets and partners.
- Full in-person and telephone support during normal operating hours.
Every Silvercore Club Member is covered by the Gun Club's liability insurance, which covers you for up to $10 million CAD across North America. This covers our members for property damage and bodily injury in the event of an incident as well as giving them access to our group Legal Defence Fund.
- Memberships are only $49 CAD (plus taxes) for 365 days.
New and returning members have the option to have a membership for 1 year or up to 5 years (and anything in between), this makes it easy to stay compliant without having to renew each year for your membership.
Q: How do I obtain my Long Term Authorization to Transport (ATT)?
After signing up for a membership with Silvercore, you will receive a Membership Letter via E-mail. If you are purchasing a firearm from a retailer (and not privately) the retailer will have you fill out the registration paperwork for the restricted firearm. This will be sent to the Chief Firearms Officer (CFO) who will request proof of your Membership.
You can send your proof of membership into the CFO by Fax or by E-mail. If you are sending it via E-Mail do not forward our original email as they will not accept it. Save the document and send a new email to the CFO outlining that you are attaching your gun club membership letter and requesting your ATT condition to be attached to your PAL.
Contact details for the Chief Firearms Officer for BC are as follows:
- Fax: 1-778-290-6174
- E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Phone: 1-800-731-4000 Ext. 9530
Once the CFO has issued your ATT, they will send you out a new PAL that says, “Standard and Non-Standard Conditions are attached to this License” or it may say, “…and Transport Conditions…” The Non-Standard/Transport Conditions refers to that ATT.
In order for your ATT to be valid, you must have an active, valid gun club or gun range membership.
Q: Do I have to keep renewing my gun club membership once I’ve bought a restricted firearm or can I let it expire?
The Canadian Firearms Program requires an active membership to an RCMP approved shooting club or shooting range must be continuously held for lawful possession of restricted firearms. Please contact the CFO’s office directly if you have any questions or concerns. To renew your club membership immediately, click here.
Q: Is there a waiting period until I have my membership?
No, membership issuance is automatic and the E-Mails containing your proof of membership are sent out instantly after payment is processed. If you don’t see the E-Mail in your inbox, please check your “Junk” or “Spam” mailbox as our system E-mails can sometimes be filtered through to there.
Q: Can I get a discount if I register for more than 1 year?
No, because we are a not-for-profit gun club we are unable to provide any discounts relating to our gun club membership. You do, however, have the benefit of receiving discounts with participating retailer’s as a gun club member!
Q: Are there any requirements to join the gun club?
There are no requirements, other than having your Valid PAL available when registering.
Q: Do you have your own range?
Silvercore Gun Club does not have its own range which is what makes the membership so inexpensive. Any members that wish to go to a range for target shooting can attend any range that allows drop-ins. For a list of available ranges in the Lower Mainland that allow drop-ins please contact our office during regular business hours for details at 604-940-7785.
Q: How will I know what discounts I can receive as a member?
Silvercore members can get a number of discounts through our partnering retailers and will receive regular E-Mail Newsletters outlining the discounts they can take advantage of.
