Want to buy a hand gun. What all do I need?

Postby SD_SC1 » Wed Jun 20, 2007 11:54 am

In terms of licencing, permits, yadda yadda yadda. Do I need a special permit to transport a hand gun from Alberta to Saskatchewan and vice versa?

I'm actually a pretty safe gun handler, especially considering I've had to use the wrong handed gun. I'm also pretty accurate at target shooting.

1) Take your CFSC and CRFSC. (you must take both)
2) Apply for your firearms license (aka PAL). Be sure to indicate you want both restricted and non-restricted. Application fee will be $80.
3) Make sure you can follow all the safe storage requirements before you actually buy the gun.
4) Buy it. The CFO will have to approve the transfer of registration to you.
5) When it's approved, you will need a temporary ATT (Authorization to transport) to bring it home.
6) If you wish to transport it to other places, you will need to obtain an ATT to do so.

Thanks.

How long is an ATT good for?

It can vary. You would be best off contacting your CFO and asking. The longest they can be issued for is 5 years and only to the specific places listed on the ATT.

My Att's are issued for transport to any club in Alberta 24/7 and run for the entire 5 years my PAL is good for. Just ask for these parameters and they should issue it.

If I travel to shoots outside Alberta I have to phone to get a temp ATT for whatever province I'm going to.

If I want to put my pistol in my waistband under my jacket and go to the mall I don't need an ATT. Just like a criminal. Except I never wanted to do that and never will. :P

You've proven that you can't handle the relatively simple act of operating a motor vehicle. And now you want a gun???!

I don't think that putting a little sticky-note reminder to yourself on the end of the barrel to not shoot anyone is going to do the trick.

I have a copy of SD_SC1's driver's licence extract, plus an insurance report and a list of PRO/NICHE occurances linked to her.

I figure if I forward all of that, a bunch of her Blueline posts and a video of her eating tin cans to a firearms officer we'll never have to worry about her getting a licence.

Just kidding. I think you'll make a fine addition to the Interceptor/OneShotTacticalSupply team.

Thank you.

Safe gun handling isn't rocket science, and you do require more training to acquire a restricted firearms permit than you do to get a driver's licence.

Just remember that the barrel with the hole in it is where the bullet comes out and you'll be fine.

I've never seen that video of SD tearing open a pop can...

I'm sure if you use your investigative skills you can find it.
