The Wolverine Experience > Our Community
The Museum was founded by a small group of firearm enthusiasts in order to preserve interesting historical firearms who might otherwise have to be destroyed due to changes in the Firearms control regulations. The collection is housed in a large display case in the showroom of Wolverine Supplies. Bolts and bolt carriers are removed to enhance security but all the firearms are in working order. Current Museum projects include the restoration of a WWI French Chauchat Mod 1915 LMG and the Japanese Type 92 medium MG, nicknamed the woodpecker by US marines in the Pacific for her slow rate of fire. In fact if anyone has any leads for parts for this MG please contact us.
The Fort La Bosse Classical Arms Gun Club has an outdoor range situated in the beautiful Assiniboine Valley, adjacent to Wolverine Supplies. The range has a 250 meter outdoor rifle range that is approved for all classes of center fire firearms in calibers up to and including the 50 BMG. The club also has four 50 meter pistol bays, approved for all center fire handgun cartridges. The Club starts each year with a “Winter Shoot” held in early spring, this is a fun match where different stages are shot using rifles, pistols and shotguns, this is a chance to come out have some fun and blow away the winter blues. We usually host a two man “Pin Match” in the spring and other “Tactical carbine and Pistol” matches according to demand. The Club host a sporting Clays match each summer that is proving very popular. The season is closed with a “Running Deer” match each “Fall’. Membership is $45 per year, members are free to come an use the range during normal operating hours.
