Someone fought this in Ontario on the grounds that this is not required in the FA act, and won - for Ontario ONLY.
Nobody has went to court to win the same precedent in the other provinces, so this is enforced in all provinces.
Thank you, please teach this cop above about gun registration because their knowledge is lacking.

Doing it yourself? Damn near impossible.
It's the exportation of the firearm (or even firearm parts) from the US that's the biggest hurdle.

There's a bunch of other conditions related to lawful moving of a restricted firearm attached to your ATT.

The hilarious part about this post is that you're 100% right because this is the law.
What makes it hilarious is that it covers literally FOUR other reasons outside of being a member of a range that allows you to possess a restricted firearm.

Even then it's not really anything you're not already subject to as a restricted license holder.
redflagdealsguy wrote: The prospect of importing a cheap but quality US gun has me intrigued. I'd want to make sure it's done right, to avoid a cavity search from the OPP/RCMP. I'd have to make a few calls to make sure this is done exactly above board.

I do so much cross border purchasing for someone at my scale that I figure, why not also guns? My understanding is that improper importation is a real problem, so unless I'm confident this can be done properly, I won't do it.
See it's not the OPP/RCMP that you'll have a problem with.
Canada surprisingly is shockingly easy to import into.
However, getting literally anything firearm related out of the US is hilariously difficult.
Sometimes ATF will hang around sporting goods stores that deal in firearms near the border and radio to the CBP Canadian license plates just to make sure you didn't buy anything intended for export.
If you want a long hard road ahead, it is actually doable, but there's only certain things you can export based on ITAR and a whole ton of paperwork you have to do.

It's amazing how many times someone can be wrong in one thread.

BC also allows clubs.

Source: Was a member of a club since we also have wait times for the good ranges in GVRD.

I'm pretty sure I've heard of a couple of collectors here too, but I'd have to go troll CGN to find them.

Right.

Silvercore's Club for instance is $49/year. They have no ranges at all. But it's good 'nuf to pass as requirement.

Gets you $10 Mill in insurance as well.

There's no federal law that requires a range membership... That's purely the CFO in specific provinces that demand it

It's impressively ignorant to connect a legal gun purchase with the gang violence issues in Ontario

Well duh.... But thinking They're buying them from a store?
Really?
That the gang members are licensed and vetted by the RCMP? Yeah, that seems intelligent

The majority of illegal handguns are smuggled into canada from the us. So while they started off legal, the second they came into canada they were illegal guns.
