    Well thanks to everyone who replied with a "welcome" post as it's greatly appreciated. A little history. I've been away from gun collecting for 40 years and have just returned a few months ago. Back then I got married started a family and to my regret, bowed to my wife's wishes and got out of gun collecting/target shooting all together. Now the family is all grown up and on their own and I'm single once again...... so here I am and enjoying it. By the way my very first acquisition was a Glock 35 Gen 4 and I love it...

    Hello and welcome to the site! I did not think the Canadian government allowed you guys to own handguns, but I guess I was wrong on that one. Anyway, welcome.

    You may think it's "gun collecting" but to your betters in the media it's "arsenal stockpiling"...

    We have pretty strict rules up here in Canada. You have to take two government approved courses and pass both written and practical with an 80% average in order to qualify for a license. Once you pass the course you can then apply for your Possession and Acquisition License (PAL). There are two flavours of this license. The basic on allows you to only possess and acquire rifles and shotguns of a certain minimum length. This also is required to purchase and possess ammunition. I mentioned early about the two courses you have to take in order to get your license. If your only interested in long guns such as rifles and shotguns, you only need to take one course. However if your interested in acquiring restricted firearms such as all handguns with a barrel length of 105mm (4.133 inch) or longer then you need to take both courses. Handgun magazines can't hold more then 10 rounds. Revolvers are restricted as well as long as their barrel length is greater than 105mm. Certain semi-automatic rifles are restricted as well. All other types of weapons such as fully automatic, silencers etc. are strictly prohibited.
