    Thanks for writing in to Senators, I was hoping for people who have been spending time defending our sport to chime in.

    I didn't start this thread to bash on any business, I was hoping for some clarification as to what the requirement is for purchasing a non-restricted firearm in person. From all the input received, it's pretty obvious the only requirement is to sight a PAL and perhaps call in to verify. Writing down any details of the purchase is not required by law currently.

    I would like to give the business the benefit of the doubt that they did not know this, I was produced with a ledger that had a RCMP logo on the front page and repeatedly told it's a requirement of the RCMP to document every sale. The pages in it appeared to be full of individual documented sales, some of which were visible to me when I signed the ledger.

    I am hoping the business in question will respond here publicly and immediately stop the practice of creating a unnecessary registry of non-restricted firearms that is not required by law currently, it would be a great gesture to the community they serve to abide by the laws which require them to visually sight a PAL and/or verify thru the RCMP database as described in a previous post.

    Alternatively they could delete this thread and we will all know where they stand eventually.

    Did you buy in Quebec, i just seen OP’s text about language barrier. I am pretty sure that after Cons ditched the LG registry, Quebec decided to keep their own version of it. Maybe that has changed by now, but perhaps if you bought in Quebec you are now in their provincial registry?

    I was at Canadian Tire a month ago. Looking to buy pellets for the kids gun to keep them busy on the target range.

    They wanted my drivers license in order to purchase just the pellets as it was "their store policy".

    Went to CT next town over. In and out no hassle, no ID.

    Def feel they don't need my personal info for something like that.

    OP thanks for the info, I will not purchase from them unless they publicly announce they are not requiring additional documentation
