To my limited knowlege around here ..other than handguns the two most own firearms around here are the .22 rifle and the shotgun. Most being 12 or 20 gauge. Mostly for hunting usages. Most people around here dont actually keep that much ammunition at home. A few boxes of each is the standard of which I know.
A .22 rifle and a shotgun (especially a 12 gauge) is a lot better than nothing. I live on the very fringes of the burbs, near a few farms, and still...almost no firearms. I would be at a huge advantage to have some, especially since if I chose to stay here, it would be the midpoint for the flood of refugees between Hamilton and Toronto. Another thing to consider- survivors of a calamity from a city will spread outwards, causing trouble. If SHTF in the States, I expect people from Michigan, Vermont, etc. will end up crossing the border.
Your point about if the SHTF is well spoken and one in the context of which I had not fully considered in the context of your local population density. YOur population density is not as great as around here ..good point by the way..excellent point. I dont know exactly where in Canada you are but I do know that the restrictions up there are much tighter than here. You have my sympathys on that. I know at times that has to burn your backside.
It surely does grind my gears, but if I have to I can work it to my advantage. Less population means less needs. If I'm ready, I can be halfway to Pine Hills before most people are done looting the local Loblaws or Walmart. Sticking around is trouble, and I don't have neighbors to rely on to help defend me. I don't expect the police to be able to do much...already, the locals are not looked kindly upon for their skills.
As for GAP- I've heard good things, but there isn't gonna be enouhg pickup, enough commonality to even consider it.
