    It is beautiful in every way - money towards the legal fund, profit for a retailer, someone gets a new firearm and people would be donating firearms to fight to keep firearms.

    There would have to be some rules so it wasn't just people sending broken junk off.. Like must be in safe working order, minimum value of xyz, etc.

    I would also support the dealer being able to make profit off it (where I can see some would want to just cover their costs). I want to see firearm dealers thriving and successful.
    Good idea. I might have, or maybe not, some prohibiteds that I'd be willing to donate -- if I have them.

    And punt guns are even more moronic. This has to one of the dumbest things I’ve seen a government try to accomplish. It does not hit the mark one bit.

    I was having beers with a government writer who when I mentioned the bans, he said oh boohoo guys don’t get to play with their toys. I played it cool and explained it’s affecting hunting rifles and shotguns aswell now. He atleast was receptive and seemed surprised to find out the extent of the ban
    In a way im glad they did this. Theyre pissing off people who are used to getting their way. If he can pay 400k for a gun you know he has politicians on both sides of the aisle on speed dial.
    All items shipped by canada post expedited with tracking and $100 insurance included.
    Insurance above $100 coverage is on the buyer.
    I'll need to see your PAL for firearms,ammo.

    It would be the sweetest poetic justice if Trudeau were trampled to death by a charging elephant.

    1 ft/lb = to 1.35582 J to get your conversions tp metric.

    Just to point out, If you shoot the 460 Weatherby with a 450 gr (29 g) Truncated solid @ 2,660 ft/s, 7,072 ft/lbs which is 9491J then what?

I wonder what compensation the government would be will to do if they were to confiscate it if it goes to prohib? (hate calling it a buyback when they never owned them in the first place)
