Course Description: The Canadian Restricted Firearms Safety Course, or RPAL, is an add-on to your firearms safety, and now includes restricted firearms, like handguns and the AR15 sporting rifles. This course is a great start that will give you all the basic information and skills you need to handle, fire and maintain restricted firearms safely. The RPAL course is primarily handguns and more "tactical" looking firearms, which can only be used by the general public for target shooting. The 6 hours of classroom time is a mandatory requirement set by the RCMP & CFO.
