    Capable like variant, another slippery slope.

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 buy back when they never owned them in the first place)
    Is it Ernest Hemingway's gun? WOW

    Non restricted, so non compliance will be easier.

    I think an item like this would also appreciate in value. He should frame a legal case that the banning and mandatory buy back of this particular firearms is going to cost him future earnings, and sue the federal government not only for the current value but also for those future earnings. Bring a professional firearms appraiser in to take the stand.

    The potential that a .460 Weatherby Magnum would be used as an assault rifle is very high in the eyes of the government.....lmao

    This is something that should concern everyone. The word "capable" is just as insidious and dangerous as the word "variant". As you and others have pointed out, the gun can blow up as a result of that one and only firing, but, all it need do is fire that one time to be considered as "capable". Anybody who thinks that interpretation will not be used by the Liberals and the RCMP has their head stuck in the same sand as those who denied what the Liberals were willing to do in terms of screwing us over in the 1990s.
    Look to your front! Mark your target when it comes.

    Under free trade, I thought that you could not pass a law in Canada that denies a US company a route to profit that was previously available, which would seem to be a lot of this stuff. There were fuel additives that were banned in the US for toxicity, and continued for sale in Canada...
