It's late I know, but I'm getting my PAL and RPAL classes and test next week and I'm wondering how long I have to get a few firearms in my possession before they're either bought up and unavailable, or new legislation is announced that makes getting the ones I need (I'm aiming for a shotgun and SKS to start) impossible? Am I too late or just in time?

You're just fine for now. Supply is still good, and there's nothing major going on to change that.

Focus on Non-Restricted first. And SKS stock seems to still be good, they're just more expensive then 5 years ago. Ammo is still decent as well. Shotguns will always exist as well.

Thanks, I really appreciate your comment, feel a lot better and like I haven't missed the boat.

Won't miss the boat for awhile. Too many NRs out there to try the registry again, and too many NRs they want to prohib that will get lost in the back 40s if it happens.

At worst they will slowly just cut supply down, but manufacturers will just find the loop hole.

When AR-15s got prohib, lots shifted to straight-pull bolt actions or the AR-180 platform.

As far as I know the SKS isn't on the no-no list. Also, I don't think that you know what is coming.

Not only will the government ban about 1,500 "assault style" rifles, they will also introduce red flag laws. It only takes a single person to rat you out and a review of your gun license will be triggered. And if they find that you own an illegal weapon, you will lose your license.

I'm aware of the "assault style" ban from last year, is this an additional one?

Not as far as I see, but could change any moment as always with the Liberals. Also, currently the ownership isn't banned of these 1,500 "assault style" rifles.

Also start with a handgun. You won't be defending your home with a SKS from an intruder.

There is definitely no point in using a firearm to defend my home in Canada, I'd be in jail in no time. I have... other things for home defense. ;)

This is more for me to become a good shooter, and to have what I need incase things ever really go to shit.

Don't let anyone know you have a gun unless you trust them with your life.

This is a comment everyone needs to put thought into. Being known to have guns makes you a target of crime in the best of times, and especially if things were to go to shit one day. I'd love to drive around with a CCFR sticker on my car to show support, but I'd prefer to keep my gun ownership a private matter.

We are in decent shape. Still have supply and although ammo prices are up they aren’t as bad as the USA. Grab all the ones you can before JT.

SKS is ok but I would try to find a good shape M14. The old M1 Garand is a hell of a weapon however caused a ton of 'blue' thumbs. The M14 is magazine fed so no chance for a recruit finger :). A few upgrades (you can find on yt) and it is a weapon to be reckoned with.

Illegal in Canada bro. :(

At least the M1 is still good and may I add the only execption to the 5 shot rule allowed to load 8 shells. Clip will not work with less.

Thanks for heads up.
