Anything else has to be registered and thus putting you on the system... Sooo, yeah.
That's my story and I'm stickin' to it.
Note: Beware of canucks stocking up on empty beer bottles... it's a sooper seekrit Canadian tradition how we use them as weapons. But I can't tell
you or they'd take away my membership card.
Another Canadian here, but I do have guns. Not a huge amount,I think 12 or so. Only my 2 handguns are registered.Long guns no longer need to be
registered in Canada, so your good to go.
As for me,if I didn't have the weapons I have now, I'd be looking for 4 main weapons. 1)shotgun,either 12 or 20 guage.Lots of good ones out there,
pick one you like.2)rifle- probably a Ruger M77 in 308,30-06 or .270.be fine with a Rem 700,WIn M70,or a Savage.3).22-make mine a Ruger 10/22,but lots
of good options. 4)handgun. Again,tons of good options. .357,45acp,45 colt,40 S&W, pick one with a good track record and that you shoot well.
With those 4, I'd be all set up. I have all those bases covered,except my .22's are bolt actions. I would like to get a 10/22,and probably will next
year. I do almost all my hunting with archery gear anymore though,except for predators in the winter.
Many people are under the impression that firearms,and ownership thereof,is rare or difficult in Canada. This is totally false. I've lived in Ontario
and Alberta,and have friends/relatives in several other provinces,and there are a huge number of guns and gun owners in all of them. Take a 2 day
safety course and get a background check done,pay your fee and your off to the gun shop!
