The Gun Thread quote:

I thought it might be useful to have a thread devoted to Firearms/Sport Shooting/Hunting.

Lets start it off with what you have and what types of shooting you like to do.

I'm getting my P.A.L. tomorrow and plan on picking up a few firearms.

We do a lot of skeet-shooting, so I'd like to get a nice long-barrell for that, haven't quite thought of which one. My Father-in-law has a Benelli semi-auto...beautiful...but way too expensive for my budget. I'd love to find an old classic Remington Wingmaster, hoping to find one used:




First thing I'm going to buy is a Mossberg 500, probably with the J.I.C. kit (Just In Case). Not useful for skeet, but a nice bush gun to have up at the fishing cabin, or like it says, just in case.



Kick-Ass J.I.C. Kit

I'd also like ot get a decent .22cal rifle. I heard the Ruger SR 1022 is a pretty good way to start, plus lots of cool components available.

^^ Nice. I love the .45 cal handguns. I shot a couple at the range down in Houston this summer. One was a 1911 Springfield WWI standard issue handgun, that thing sure had a kick. The other - while not exactly a .45 - was the .357 Magnum, beautiful. I was very surprised how little recoil and how accurate the Magnum was.

Welcome to the club! I recently received my PAL also. I have just applied for my RPAL.

I bought a Marlin 795 w/ Mag and a 3-9x 35mm scope. I like it, but it is not as good as a Ruger 10/22. I am not sure what you want to do with your .22, but the Ruger Varmint/Target is such a nice gun (though a tad expensive). If not, the standard model is only $250.

http://ca.wholesalesports.com/store...prod101961.html

http://ca.wholesalesports.com/store...prod101959.html

PS: Wholesale Sports now carries Federal Champion Hollow-points in a 525 Value Pack for $20. This is far superior ammo compared to Remmington thunderbolt. BTW, If you shop around for ammo, stay away from hyper-velocity bullets as the extra kick can damage any autoloaders.



For an inexpensive shotgun, look at the Browning BPS Stalker. It is by far the smoothest action shotty I have felt in the sub-$1000 range. Once you feel the action compared to Rem. 870, Stoger, Mossberg, you will agree. Plus bottom ejection is pretty cool too.

http://ca.wholesalesports.com/store.../prod81389.html

If you want to buy an auto-loading shotgun, you will be spending upwards of $1500 - $2500 before finding anything decent (doesn't fuck up on you).

I have this, could not be happier with it. Only mod is a 13lb main spring to lighten its already light trigger:

CZ SP-01 SHADOW



Next purchase will probably be this for cheap plinking in the pistol bays:

S&W MP-22



or this, if it gets good reviews. Supposed to be here any day now:

ISSC MK22 SCAR

You bet, both of the rifles are .22's.

Apparently the delay on the SCAR Is waiting for it to be classified either restricted or non-restricted.

If it gets Restricted, for absolutely no reason whatsoever, just like the MP-22 did, you won't be killing any gophers with it

The government enjoys restricting weapons that resemble the real thing, even though they are .22 and cannot possibly be converted into the real thing.

The MP-22 is $500 the SCAR will be about $650.

Also I have neither yet, one or the other will be my next purchase though.

That SCAR would be awesome. What prevents a restricted rifle from being used to kill gophers? Are they only allowed to be fired at the range?


edit: I suppose I'll figure this out tomorrow at the PAL course!

Restricted firearms can only be used in an approved range, and you have to show the CFO proof of range membership.

Unrestricted firearms have much more lax storage rules, can be used on crown land, or private land, etc.

I got my PAL/RPAL in less than a month, basically exactly the 28 day minimum period, a couple days longer maybe.

1) Send your application, photos, and proof of passing the course via registered mail.

2) When your mail has arrived, call them and confirm they have it, and also that you haven't made any mistakes on the form (you can verbally correct them I believe).

3) Call the CFO office and do your phone interview, then have your references call the CFO office right after. Don't wait for them to call you or your references.

4) Call and check the status. If everything is good, and they just haven't got to it yet, they will do so on the spot and get it out to you.

Do all that and you should have it in the absolute minimum amount of time, it worked for me and many others. The CFO office is very good about it, and has no problem with people making their life easier.

Also when you guys apply for your long term ATTs, get it for "All approved gunsmiths and ranges". The CFO office will help you with the wording if you aren't sure, they are familiar with the request. This makes it so you are free to travel to any gunsmith/range, not just one.

28 days? myself and 2 friends took the test the same week (July 27th myself) I only received my tags September 20th (ish).

I would expect 45 days + before you get your cards.

3-4 weeks for any registration of firearms.

Mind you, a lot of your questions will be answered in your course.

Yup, I got mine just a few days longer than the 28 day mandatory minimum waiting period. You just need to call them and be proactive - they are really good about it. Alberta is known for being really fast too.
