Whoa... foghorn. Pump brakes.

People have opinions too. I am entitled to mine. Whatever floats your boat. As for sports cars, owners do drive them so I don't get your logic.

If I take the time to get a license in Canada (which is a lot of work and money) and buy a gun or rifle. I am shooting something!

Enjoy your collection.
A person who goes out and buys a Porsche 911 Turbo with sports package so that they can go to and from work on the DVP during rush hour or pickup groceries from No-Frills and meet up with some friends at the local Bubble Tea shop exclusively are not using the car for what it was intended for. Sure they are "driving" the car but that wasn't the only reason why Porsche made a car with 540 HP and 0-100 km/h acceleration time of 3 seconds. It was meant to be taken to a track and raced. These owners are more akin to a collector than an actual user, at least in my opinion.

Contrary to popular misconceptions, it's quite easy to get a license (restricted even). 1 weekend and a few hundred bucks.

I can only think of one crime in Ontario committed with AR15 . Long guns are not really a staple for criminals . Unless you hang with criminals or deal drugs . Your chances of getting killed by a gun are almost non existent.

I imagine most AR15 manufacturers are getting hit in the pocket book with the cheap non restricted rifles available. Something you can use on crown land vs approved ranges only .
Most criminals only use hand guns cause it's easy to conceal. ARs looks more scary than handguns so the public targets them.

I would think it's the opposite. AR15 manufacturers get to piggyback on the whole US market so prices are cheaper. A non restricted AR variant made specifically for the Canadian market cannot compete due to volume so their prices are high. A modern Sporter or Maccabee SLR received set is already $1k in without even adding in all the required parts. Even a WK 108C is $1100.

When it went on sale the last time, I pulled the trigger (pun intended) right away.
I'm glad we have a Cabelas here in Ottawa, which is a 10min drive from my house.

It took me 2 8-hour days to get an RPAL. It is not a lot of work. It was $250. Not really a lot of money either.
Seems like people like to perpetuate the false narrative that it's difficult to get a gun license in Canada. Maybe it is if you've got a criminal record, but if you do then you shouldn't have any guns anyway. When I replied to a post on Reddit where some guy was saying how extremely difficult it was to get a restricted license in Canada, saying that it wasn't difficult at all and that the RCMP didn't even call my references, people freaked out and called me a liar. I think that anti gun nuts just like to think that it's extremely difficult to get guns in Canada just so they can have some kind of moral superiority over people from the US.

Whoa now. Take my post with a sarcastic tone please as I was responding to the ignorant poster. I'm a gun owner and actually have an order in for a Modern Sporter. It's gonna be a fully decked out build I can't wait to get in August. :)
Sorry

All i said was I don't get the point of having something and not using what is was intended for. Pokemon cards I get, Collecting makes sense. Guns I don't thats all. I don't care what anyone does with their free time or money.

What does it matter to you what I do with my money and free time?

Get a life

Pretty sure your spouse or loved one has to say it is ok as well. And a criminal back round check. Took my buddy a few months to get his. Backlog maybe. But for $1 I am not just collecting. Range or hunting!!!

I spent $9K building a mining rig and now it's collecting dust.
Today it's guns, tomorrow it's electronics, next year another car...who gives a shit!

Back round check and approval from your spouse. They don't want angry loved ones packing heat!!! Makes sense.

Lol, the final decision is not based on whether the spouse endorses you or not.

Very good deal... * It's going for around $580 US so with our dollar in the tank it's a screaming deal.
