    Hello from B.C. Canada

    Hi all, I am a finishing carpenter from B.C. Canada. Glad to have found this forum! I own a few rifles that I've had for ? close to 50 years. My wife and I recently obtained our restricted licences (handgun) so we're looking forward to getting to the range to do some shooting. We are currently shopping for our first handgun, thinking right now that a 1911 .22 long rifle might be a good way to start.

    wow, didn't know that folks in BC could own handguns.

    how long does the permit process take?

    in NYC, my rifle/shotgun permit took 4 months.

    I didn't realize you have to first get permission to own a firearm in NYC. Doesn't surprise me though, since you don't even have permission to purchase more than 16 ounces of soda.
