The Silvercore Podcast Ep. 10 – Moose Underwear and Other Hunting Stories

Announcement January 16, 2020

Episode 10 of The Silvercore Podcast is here! In this episode, we find out what happens when a group of hunters, with very different backgrounds and hunting experience, embark on a week-long shared moose hunt.

Also in this episode, Paul Ballard regales us with sage hunting advice, Rob Wilson discusses when it’s appropriate to put underwear on a moose, and Mike Welti shares an experience that no hunter wants to find themselves in, but every hunter should be prepared for.

This episode is sponsored by Carter Motorsports in Vancouver. As long-time customers of Carter Motorsports, we were very excited when they agreed to be part of this podcast. Also, a huge thanks to International Barrels, who supplied a custom barrel chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor and Vortex Optics, who provided the scope for this hunt. All together, it made for one extremely accurate hunting rig.

You can listen to episode 10 of our podcast on Podbean, Apple iTunes, YouTube, Spotify, SoundCloud, Google Podcast, and Google Play. All you’ll have to do is search for ‘The Silvercore Podcast.’ 

If you have any feedback or questions that we can address, please reach out to us via social media or at 1-855-771-5837 or info@silvercore.ca. Finally, don’t forget to rate, review, and subscribe to the podcast, and while you’re at it, follow us on FacebookInstagram, and Twitter!

Pro Tips for Renewing your Firearms License

Announcement, Policy, Regulation and Law January 8, 2020

Over Silvercore’s many years of experience in teaching, training, and certifying a countless number of instructors, students, and otherwise, we’ve realized some tips and tricks which may aid those in the process of renewing their firearms license, PAL, to achieve a faster renewal.

So in this blog, we are discussing tips that may make your renewal go from tedious and lengthy to easy and renewed in no time at all!

Renew Early

Renew before your PAL expires. Why? Because if you let your PAL expire, the application process to have it reinstated is much longer. In fact, it’s the same process as when you first applied- including the 28 day waiting period! Take it from us, renew early and save yourself both time and stress.

Another item worth mentioning is that to renew, you will need to present a copy of your course reports. If you do not have a copy of your course reports, which articulate you went through the required training for your PAL, you may have to retake the CFSC/CRFSC training.

Renew Online

The good news is that you can easily renew online via the RCMP’s website, which can be found here. Online renewal ensures that your renewal gets to the RCMP promptly, but also gives you peace of mind knowing that it won’t get lost in the mail. Another bonus- you also save postage! 

In possession of restricted firearms? Have your proof of membership handy!

As a restricted firearms owner, you need a membership from a club or range to have the Long Term Authorization To Transport or ATT. This allows you to purchase, possess and transport your restricted firearms.

So, if you’re renewing your firearms licence and you currently have restricted firearms in your possession, one of the best things you can do to speed along the process is to include your proof of membership with
your renewal application to the RCMP. This saves time because then they don’t have to send you a letter telling you that they need that proof of membership for the ATT.

If you don’t have a valid membership and need one for your renewal, you can join the Silvercore Gun Club to meet the ATT requirements. Bonus: this membership not only comes with 10 Million in North American wide liability insurance, but it also has some pretty great perks, including annual members-only events with brag-worthy grand raffle prizes.

Include the right fees

Effective March 31, 2020, the Canadian Firearms Program has updated its service fees for firearms licences for individuals and businesses. The fees for each licence are as follows:

  • Individuals upgrading from PAL to RPAL $40.88
  • non-restricted firearms (PAL) $61.32
  • restricted firearms (RPAL) $81.76

Keep in mind that if you’re applying for your RPAL, this includes your PAL, so the total fee for both the non-restricted and restricted firearms is $81.76.

Check, check, and check again!

Be sure to review your application form, more than once. This will ensure that you haven’t missed any crucial details. Leave the form for a day and return to it on a new day. Fresh eyes tend to see new things, and likewise, tired eyes can miss details.

Unsure about details on your application form? Contact us! We can provide you with the information and advice you need to complete your forms and be on your merry way in no time!

The Silvercore National Pistol Shoot – Why It Was Created

Announcement November 29, 2019

Many of you may already know our story, but for those of you who don’t we wanted to provide you with more of a background as to who we are, why we started the Silvercore Gun Club and our intention behind the launch of our Silvercore National Pistol Shoot. 

The Beginning 

Silvercore started as a sole proprietorship over 20 years ago and then fully incorporated in 2003. The name Silvercore came from our founder’s grandparents, “Silver” Armeneau, and “Core” Cornelius Bader. Armeneau earned his living as a travelling motorcycle daredevil before becoming a decorated WWII veteran, and finally a Vancouver Police Detective. Bader immigrated from the Netherlands and became a successful entrepreneur, running Bader’s Dutch Cookies. To this day, Silvercore holds the core values of our namesakes. 

Silvercore was the first company of it’s kind in Canada, delivering high-quality instruction to the general public as well as maintaining contracts with government and private industries in the fields of firearms training, consulting, program creation, and countrywide gunsmithing. Silvercore also created a sub-section of the company called the Silvercore Gun Club.

Why We Started The Silvercore Gun Club 

The Silvercore Gun Club was born out of Silvercore’s desire to create a community of outdoors enthusiasts brought together by their love and enjoyment of shooting sports.

The club aims to unite the firearms community and to be a place of knowledge, as it shares industry-related updates and events to its members. The club also provides the valuable service of ensuring members keep up to date and in compliance with firearms legislation. This insurance allows affiliates to enjoy their desired shooting activities in a social environment while supporting different ranges across Canada. 

Over the years, the club has grown to where we now offer insurance, a multitude of services, as well as nation-wide club sanctioned events for all of our members to participate in. The Silvercore National Pistol Shoot is an exciting milestone that our members all across Canada are able to participate in. 

Why We Launched The Silvercore National Pistol Shoot 

Previously, all of our events have been local to British Columbia and we received feedback that members across Canada also wanted to partake in Silvercore activities even though they live outside B.C. 

Knowing this, we tailored the Silvercore National Pistol Shoot to be a mail-in event accessible to all of our members. This event, like all of our in-person events, includes a sense of community, friendly competition, and prizes. The only requirement we ask is that participants are members of our Silvercore Gun Club community. If you are not currently a member, you can register here.

We have a variety of items to giveaway for this event that have generously been donated by companies such as Drummond ShootingPoco Military & Kent OutdoorsDlask Arms, and Reliable Gun. Participants have a chance to win items such as:

  • Post Topper Target Hangers
  • A 6″ AR500 Round Target 
  • A Glock G19 Gen 4 9MM
  • A Carbon Fibre 10-22 Barrel
  • A Smith & Wesson M&P 2.0 9MM

The Finer Details

For all match conditions, including a full list of prizes, requirements, and targets required, please review the entire Entry & Rule Book and Entry Form. We look forward to reviewing your submissions and awarding the winners, best of luck!

The Silvercore Podcast Ep. 5 – Yoga socks at the snipers hide. Graeme Foote.

Editorial November 7, 2019

In this episode, we sit down with  Graeme Foote. Graeme is a competitive shooter who is recently back from attending the Sniper’s Hide Cup, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg of exciting things he should be commended for.

Instead, Foote should also be recognized for his excellent marksmanship abilities, his work ethic, and the work he does within the shooting community for Project Maple Seed.

Project Mapleseed is an apolitical rifle marksmanship training program that focuses on teaching traditional rifle marksmanship, and Foote is a Rifle Chair and active participant at the non-profit organization.
