How did you guys manage to purchase it online if you don't belong to a gun range? It requires specific gun club information.

I don't necessarily want to join a gun range if I don't have to and visit the local gun range on a day pass basis.

Just got mine. Came with a case that they charged me $40 for which I'm not thrilled about. Anyone know how to find the combination for the lock???

Thank you very much, that is great summary of information.
Just a heads up as well.
They perform a very deep background check on you, mine took over 6 months to process. They called all my references as well.
After you get your permit, a quick background check is performed on you daily! The moment you get a criminal charge (including the drinking/driving one) - you'll be stripped of your permit!

Basically, anyone with a firearms permit are the best people to know :) It's the ones without a permit you have to worry about!!!

I haven't decided if I'm sad or glad I was out of town when this deal came up/expired.

I've never heard of them making you buy a case for shipping before. Is it a decent on or just a flimsy POS?

It's like your regular cheapo Plano rifle case. It makes sense they would need one to ship it, but they should've included that in the checkout. All they have on my confirmation email is the $8 lock. I'm probably going to send an email complaining.

You should, it's extra charges that weren't disclosed, id be choked. I haven't heard of any other retailers doing so. Literally every restricted I've ever bought online from a business has come in a cardboard box, no trigger lock. If someone steals your package it didn't matter either way, 5 min with a saw or steel and your through.

If you are in Ontario you don't need to belong to a range to purchase a restricted. But the real question is will a range allow you to bring in a restricted without a membership?
When asked what range I belong to - I just put down what range I usually go to as a visitor. CFO didn't seem to have an issue with it.

I got my sport 2 in the mail a couple weeks later without and case or lock. It's not a firearm until you open the parcel. I'm sort of surprised that Cabela's is pushing a lock and case - especially if they didn't disclose it at time of purchase.

Orly??? Then why have rules and regulations about the shipment of firearms.

If you're referring to the grey area regarding STATTs when collecting a package containing a firearm , you're going about it the wrong way.

Mine was bought from well know dealer and came in the original carboard box with a simple screw type trigger lock attached to it.

Canada Post's guidelines for shipping firearms still clearly state the following:

Customers who wish to ship firearms must:

-unload the firearms
-attach a secure locking device to the firearms
-lock the firearms in a sturdy, non-transparent container, and
-remove the bolt or bolt carrier from any automatic firearms (if removable).

I called Cabelas to complain about being charged for the case when there was no mention of case when I ordered or in my confirmation email. I forwarded the rep my confirmation email and he talked to his supervisor who then offered me a $25 gift card for my inconvenience. I declined and will dispute the charge with my CC company. Pretty shady. First time I've had an issue with cabelas but I know many others have had problems.

Can you not just return the case? I absolutely am going to try to do that in store.

Rules are different for businesses. It doesn't have to make sense.

Those are Canada Post requirements but to be honest - I'm way more concerned about what the RCMP requires. And I can't seem to find anywhere that mentions a case or even a lock. http://www.rcmp-grc.gc.ca/cfp-pcaf/faq/trans-eng.htm

And yes - it's just a parcel. My wife can walk into our local post office show some ID and pick up my AR15. She is not breaking any laws unless she decides to open the box.

Mine was shipped in the original box with no trigger lock. Looking at the link you provide - yes they should of added a lock on the thing. The reality is - you can't control how retailers are going to ship you a firearm.
