Apologies for the noob question but are there any good Toronto resources for getting a license and starting to shoot for sport?

I’d recommend getting RPAL as well you may think you only want a 22 now but as time goes on you’ll dream bigger and life never makes it easy to go do another course. Get it all done while you can!

I don’t think anything this cheap is going to stack with CCI. I haven’t used AE 22lr. This stuff has a few misfires per hundred I’d say and isn’t dirtier than id expect.

My preferred is Federal for cheap stuff but this price will lure me in.

As a complete beginner, the first thing you should do is to do your background research. Shooting for sport can be really fun but it gets VERY expensive (ex. $500/year range membership, multiple $1000 firearms, $300 optics, etc.) and ranges are usually an hour away from Toronto. The next step is to sign up to get your license. I did my PAL in Scarborough with Walter Bent (quick Google search will bring him up) and my RPAL at Target Sports. You can't go wrong with either instructor, I highly recommend both. You will easily pass the test if you just pay attention and listen to the instructors. No "studying" required.

If you're shooting for sport, you're probably going to want to get your RPAL. Your RPAL will allow you to purchase AR15's and pistols if you plan on doing 3-gun competitions or IPSC. Don't make the mistake I made and DO BOTH YOUR PAL AND RPAL TOGETHER!!!

By this point, you'll probably be on /r/canadaguns or canadiangunnutz forum where you'll find resources for competitions and IPSC

Feel free to PM me if you have any other questions

Only $300 optics on your $1000+ rifle? I must be doing something wrong :)

It's horrible. Doesn't feed properly 10/22. Would never buy again.

Hmm, good comments on the ammo. Was about to chime in that yes, I have had quite a few misfires with these on both of my firearms taking this ammunition.

Not sure about this particular ammo, but I tried Winchester hollow points in my 10/22, and they were horrible. Did not group at all. The same rifle shoots about 1 MOA with CCI Mini-Mags.

Can definitely confirm poopy pew pew snacks. My .22 is a single shot and hand loading a couple hundred of these rounds I found that they're simply poorly assembled. Sometimes the bullet could pop out like you were breaking the eraser off a pencil. Kind of scary, really.

At UFA, REMINGTON thunderbolt 500 is always $35. I bought 5 boxes in last 2 years, never had any problems.

Yikes.

Info for interested Montrealers: range cost can be ~$300/year, and the ranges are on island (ie minutes away if they ever finish this incessant construction).

Firearms, well, you can always start by buying used.

Good deal, agreed, terrible ammo though
