Ready, aim, fire!
Halifax Citadel National Historic Site
Step up and take your turn as a 78th Highlander firing an authentic Snider-Enfield rifle just as they did in 1869! Feel the weight of the barrel as it presses against your cheek. Stand tall, hold the rifle steady and pull the trigger.
This is 19th-century fire power at its best!
Ready, aim, fire like a 78th Highlander at the Halifax Citadel!
Only participants aged 16 years and over can fire a rifle. Photo ID required.
