    Hello from your neighbour to the North!!

    Hi Guys and Girls,
    I'm a newbie to this forum but have been involved with handguns since the late 70's when I was a reserve constable with a local department. Even though I am Canadian and reside in Canada I possess concealed carry permits for Utah, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire and Maine, giving me coverage of roughly 35 states. My wife is a US citizen and has extended family all over the US requiring frequent road trips. My carry piece of choice is a Smith and Wesson snubbie. Call me old fashioned, but you know what they say about old dogs.
    I'm open to any contacts and questions.
    Regards,
    GunnyBunny

    How do you maintain possession of your handgun while in Canada?

    Welcome from your neighbour to the south.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Response to retsupt99

    There a common misconception that handguns are illegal in Canada. This is far from true, however they are VERY tightly controlled among us guys (and girls) that follow the rules. They stay at the registered location locked up, and may only be taken to the range, or a repair facility. This requires a separate transport permit, valid for five years (usually). More info can be found at Canada Firearms Centre Welcome Page | Page d'accueil - Centre des armes à feu Canada . The FAQ section is worth a look, especially at the section that descibes different classes of firearms. For example, any handgun with a barrel length of less than 4.14" is classed as a "prohibited firearm". This came about in 1995. Anyone that already had one and firearms already registered in the country were "grandfathered". Those grandfathered can trade among themselves, but no new collectors and no new imports. This will effectively reduce the number of (legal) handguns in Canada within one generation.
