Why not create a system where you have designated weekends where the range is staffed, troops could then "rent" their rifles from their vault (Have it transfered from their vault to the range) and have NATO ammo available at a certain price charged to the member either at cost or for a small profit. RSO's are present, troops get additional training if needed, and if you charge a little extra, DND can make a few bucks to reinvest in range maintenance.If DND allowed it they could and it would be legal. The Firearms Act doesn't apply to the Canadian Forces, all they would have to do is provide permission for soldiers to do so. Personally I don't think it is a bad idea at all, the Swiss take home their service arms and keep them at their homes full time without issue, if we are unable to do the same then we clearly can't trust those soldiers with firearms and they should be discharged.
