    Sometimes you have to take a chance, whether that be on someone, or something!

    He seems to find everything quite difficult, I assume this will be no different.

    Hey... "The Gun Thread" is kinda a vague title, it really could be about anything.

    The courses aren't difficult, previous experience is definitely an asset for the practical portion. If you are indeed interested in the RPAL then I recommend the combined course offered at CSC off Macleod. I believe it's $275 for both courses and tests and you can do it all in one day.

    As a note I would recommend you do a bit of research on storage and use regulations in Alberta wrt the areas you plan on using the gun. You will likely find that their use is prohibited where you want to use them. Not to mention I am not sure if loaded shotguns are allowed on ATV's during transport.

    Ultimately it also takes a very long time to get the license (45 days is how long you need to wait before even asking if it is delayed) so I would plan ahead of the season if you want to use it this summer.

    GL and have fun with the sport.

    Not even close. But that's all been covered numerous times in the other threads. My license was issued 30 days after the received it (minimum is 28 days)

    I just did my restricted/non restricted class 2 weeks ago. The fail is 80%, but like it was said above, if you fail you dont deserve to be near a gun. I passed both averaging ~96%.

    Whoever told you the fail rate is 80% is full of it. I have a buddy that was an instructor. It's more like a 99% pass rate for people that have taken the course. Basically unless you sweep the examiner during the practical, or just don't understand the questions you're going to pass.

    haha yea, I meant the pass mark is 80%. Our instructor said at most she has maybe 1 person fail out of 25 people. Its an extremely high pass rate.

    You have better odds of passing your Firearms Safety Course then you do of passing your Drivers License test on the first try....

    that's because everyone respects guns and understands it's a privilege, not a right. Not so much so with cars.

    Entirely true.

    It's super easy. Just keep this in mind: When doing the practical portion of the test, think of safety. Gun safety on. Don't point the barrel anywhere stupid. No loaded weapons in dangerous situations, etc. If you keep this in mind, you can't help but pass.

    Owning guns is a Right. This dates back to the English Bill of Rights, which is the same place the US got the 2nd Amendment from.

    Driving, however is a privedlge. Failing the test means you dont get a license. The Alberta CFO told me back in 2006 that as long as you dont have a criminal record or a history of violence/mental health he can not deny you a Non Restricted Firearms License.
