    Hi guys,

    I need your advice about setting up a very small shooting range at home (in a village in QC). Now that most of the kids are gone, I was thinking of converting my basement or attic into a range for my private use. It can also serve as a gun lab where I can tinker with my toys and do ballistic tests.

    Can I legally do this? Do I need to get any sort of permit from crame? Perhaps I can renovate the place in a way that it will be totally soundproof, so now one will know. ;)

    How should I proceed?

    Maraming salamat,
    Mao

    mao magandang umaga kapatid.
    ang pagkakaalam ko bro is that you need to secure a permeit from FED.
    meron silang form tsaka reqs. list para sa private shooting range.
    meron mga safety reqs. din na kailangan sundin, tapus meron pa ata site inspection. if you go legit. try to ask FED about it.

    pero kung gusto mo "renovation" sa basement mo to make it as your toys area without all the hussles(not adviseable though)
    , mag search ka nalang sa inet about shooting range plans & set-ups.

    i think it would be better to go legit on this... imagine this scenario. ur firing ur guns in ur attic or basement, somehow ur neighbors heard the gun shots (or may naingit syo... or worst may naiinis syo) calls the police and report they heard shots fired inside ur house. the cops thinking u killed some1 in ur house.... raids ur house, they see all ur guns and they like ur guns.... good-bye nice guns :sad: hassle lang yan bro :)

    The PNP-FED guidelines on permit approval for a firing range
    seem to exclude any possibility of establishing a private
    firing range at home.

    Besides, you wouldn't want all that lead dust around your family.

    Many many thanks guys for your advice. Deeply appreciated.

    I can see it is a unanimous decision: NO to a private range at home. Many risks involved.

    Back to Tough Guys range.

    Best wishes to all.

    Gumagalang,
    Mao.

    Somebody should at least ask where he lives.

    Eh kung sa Fuga island siya nakatira, baka OK.

    No problem

    hehe

    I have a friend who has his own shooting range. Complete yung indoor range.. It is located in one of the villages in tandang sora, QC and I know this guy to be very prudent. I'll ask how they have done it and complied with the necessary permits and will get back to you.

    Edited to add: Also the reange is a structure separate from their house, sound proofed and with all the indoor range equipment and 5 shooting bays if I remember it right. (The last time I got a look at it was five years ago)

    Years ago, my uncle's friend converted a 40 foot cargo container into a shooting bay. He did some soundproofing and the result is amazing. Wala ka talaga maririnig sa labas. Yun nga lang, you need more space. Malaki yung bakuran nya at nilagyan pa ng katakot na di ko alam to avoid ricochets, overpenetration and sound blasts. Engineer kasi yun saka may edad na rin kaya wala ng magawa.:supergrin:
