New Ontario Shooters Association
Thunder Bay Target Shooting Club
For Rifle and Pistol in Thunder Bay, Ontario
The NOSA Thunder Bay target shooting club has shooting ranges located in the City of Thunder Bay for indoor shooting and near Nolalu for outdoor shooting. We have members from many outlying communities as well. Rifle and pistol target shooting activities are available year round.
The "New" in our name relates to the once popular term of New Ontario for this portion of the province. Our shooting club started in 1909 as a rifle long range target shooting club, and incorporated several other local clubs over the years as we expanded our interests to other types of rifle and pistol target shooting.
Purpose of the NOSA Website
NOSA's website is primarily designed to provide news to members about club events and activities including target shooting, our NOSA Junior Shooters Program, competitions, gun shows, safety training, assistance to the shooting public, and much more.
Hopefully others will also find some useful information here and be encouraged to try this enjoyable shooting sport. Be sure to visit the Member Ramblings and the Equipment Reviews webpages at left for hunting stories and shooting equipment advice. Joining this particular Thunder Bay shooting club provides the support and fellowship of some very fine people.
Lady Shooters. New Ontario Shooters Association (NOSA) has a core of active lady shooters in Thunder Bay, both adults and juniors. Any lady who might be interested in target shooting can come out to Arnone Shooting Range (Court Street beside Bill Martin's Nursery) at 7:00 p.m. on any non-holiday Friday evening from mid September through April. Alternatively, at any time of the year, please contact a member of the executive. We will arrange for one of our members to provide instruction and help you try shooting -- no obligation, just have some good fun, safely.
Contact with the NOSA Club's Executive Members or Webmaster can be done through information on the Club Contacts webpage, where you will also see a link to our Facebook page -- click the Club Contacts link at your left.
Best regards, and always remember to act safely and responsibly,
Banacek -- NOSA Webmaster
Northwestern Ontario has a relatively small population scattered throughout a vast area of remote Canadian wilderness. Most towns are one to six hours' drive away from the primary population centre here in the City of Thunder Bay, on the northwest shore of Lake Superior. The shooting sports, along with camping and fishing and boating and other healthy outdoor activities, are very popular here.

For shooters to ponder: "Lost time is never found again."
