Have you ever shot a gun? Or sent an arrow winging toward a target?

You can enjoy that experience with the safety of professional oversight in the hills of Virden’s Assiniboine River Valley, over Saturday or Sunday, this weekend, June 22/23.

Early every summer Wolverine Supplies hosts a family friendly open house where all ages and experience levels are welcome to try out shooting. Various stations include an archery range and a wide variety of different rifles, handguns and shotguns in a variety of calibres from .22 LR to .50 BMG.

It’s part of their customer appreciation and a great promotional event for the Virden-based firearms store. You may be surprised at the camping and sporting merchandise in their store.

Live Fire demonstrations of collector pieces such the AK47, the Bren, M2 are planned for both Saturday and Sunday.

There will also be an opportunity to win five prizes in a limited draw, the Annual Morale Patch Promo for Charity. The purchase of a unique Morale Patch enters customers into a prize draw and all proceeds go to a charitable organization (www.wolverinesupplies.com/wolverine-days/patch-promo).

This year, it’s Wolverine’s 30th Anniversary. To celebrate, they aim to raise $30,000 to be equally split between the Canadian Coalition for Firearm Rights (CCFR) and Ronald McDonald House (RMHC) Charities (www.wolverinesupplies.com/wolverine-days/patch-promo).


The Canadian Coalition for Firearm Rights aims to be a strong and reputable, public-facing voice for Canadian firearms owners. They are committed to maintaining the current rights and freedoms while continuing to push as a mobilizing and organizational force for positive legislative change.

Ronald McDonald Houses provide families of sick children with a home to stay at while their child is being treated at a nearby hospital. Ronald McDonald Family Rooms also provide a comfortable place for families to rest and recharge, right inside hospitals.
