ALL LAWS ARE COMPLIED WITH. Live firearms and live ammunition require the appropriate Possession and Acquisition Licence (PAL). Restricted firearms would require the relevant PAL with RESTRICTED endorsement. The PAL acts as an automatic background check and the police check ALL Canadian legal firearms owners EVERY DAY. Firearms owners must first pass R. C. M. Police tests for safe handling and there are strict rules to follow regarding storage, display, transportation and use.
This is a hobby, and being retired and on a pension, I have to sell off some items so that I may buy other items that interest me. Note that the firearms and deactivated former firearms that I have for sale are for sale in CANADA ONLY.
Canada has very strict laws concerning firearms. These laws are TOTALLY different from the U.S.A. The illegal firearms used by criminals and terrorists, contrary to the lies put out by the Liberal Government, are almost all are smuggled into Canada from the U.S.A. A small number are stolen from the military, from police forces, gun shops and private owners.
FIREARMS CATEGORIES IN CANADA:
- Prohibited – I am not licenced for any of the “Prohibited” categories, so none are here. The Liberals are gradually prohibiting types of firearms. Eventually no one in Canada will legally be allowed to own those types. Category includes live machine guns, converted-autos (CA), small hand guns, many types of scary looking rifles, one-handed cross-bows etc.
- Restricted – PAL with restricted endorsement. Generally hand-guns and scary looking rifles.
- Non-Restricted – Standard PAL required.
- Antique – No simple definition. Very old and ammunition not easily available. No PAL required.
- Deactivated – No longer a firearm as the deactivation is PERMANENT. No PAL required.

DEACTIVATED FIREARMS AND THE LAW IN CANADA – A deactivated firearm in Canada is NO LONGER A FIREARM AND NO LICENCE IS REQUIRED.
The deactivated items listed here are older deactivations. No paperwork form the RCMP exists nor is any paperwork needed. Contrary to the rumour and misunderstandings, it is NOT necessary to reweld them to current guidelines. Here are the RCMP’s own words on this: “The new standards will not affect the status of firearms that have already been deemed to be deactivated unless there is evidence that the firearm has been, or could easily be, reactivated. … The regulations pertaining to the safe storage and transportation of firearms do not apply to firearms that have been deregistered due to deactivation. It remains important, however, to store and transport them safely to deter loss or theft. “

ESTATES & DOWNSIZING:
I am happy to help families find good, LEGAL homes for unwanted firearms and militaria. Note that is you are dealing with firearms in an estate in Canada, the Executor may apply for special legal coverage to allow them to sell off etc. the firearms, even if they do not personally hold the relevant licences. Search RCMP firearms Executor estates. Please DO NOT simply hand over firearms and ammunition to the police, even for temporary safe-keeping as these are VERY difficult to get back and are almost always destroyed. The R.C.M.P. members can be very uncooperative I have found and they sometimes lie and sometimes make the legal process very difficult. They may even refuse to return any ammunition, even if placed with them in temporary safekeeping. I would be happy to help in any legal manner that I can.
THE RCMP AND FIREARMS:
My late father-in-law was BCPP (1941-1950) and RCMP (1950 – 1970) and he retired as a Staff-Sergeant. I worked with RCMP history for 8-years and I have great respect for what the NWMP/RNWMP/RCMP were. Sadly today, the RCMP have a very bad reputation regarding legal firearms and their licenced owners, as many of the Mounties treat law-abiding citizens like criminals.
- In High River Alberta, there was the illegal search and seizure of over 500 firearms (later returned upon the direct order of then Prime Minister Harper) and their seizure (and reported destruction) of thousands of rounds of ammunition worth a lot of money. This constituted theft and destruction of legally owned private property.
- As well they have disseminated incorrect information regarding the law. In Canada, one needs to have a valid firearms licence in order to obtain firearms or ammunition. It has been that way for many years. RCMP Assistant-Commissioner Fordy late in 2015 on a radio talk show said that anyone in Canada could buy ammunition without a licence. That is blatantly UNTRUE and is deliberately alarmist. Having been a policeman for many years, he MUST have known that BASIC fact of the law, so that raises the question of what his motives were.
- When obtaining a small firearms collection from an old veteran who had placed them for safe-keeping with the RCMP while he found a person who could accept them legally, I found that the RCMP Constable handling this LIED to me several times and was needlessly obstructionst. I finally had to go over his head and speak to his superior.
- Sadly, the RCMP are still at it in 2018. While Bill C-71, a stupid new gun law that the Liberals are ramming down our throats and which only hassles law-abiding gun owners and does NOTHING to restrain criminals, was still being discussed in Parliament and the Senate. The RCMP “jumped the gun” and put on their websites warnings for owners of certain presently legal non-restricted rifles (Swiss Arms and some CZ firearms) to register their firearms BEFORE the end of June 2018 or face confiscation BEFORE THE LAW WAS EVEN PASSED! (it has still not passed as of 2018-07-03). They were forced to take that down. It does shown the anti-gun bias that has developed in the last few decades of the RCMP.
- 2018-07-11 : Daniel Guay, Senior Firearms Technician, Firearm Technology Unit, Supervisor, RCMP Canadian Firearms Program (CFP) wrote to a collector who was purchasing a deactivated ex-firearm that had RCMP certification from 1975 and told the person that it had to conform to current standards which is incorrect and contradicts the RCMP’s own web site. He of all people should know the rules and this is yet another example of senior RCMP members giving out incorrect information. http://www.rcmp-grc.gc.ca/cfp-pcaf/bulletins/bus-ent/bulletin-58-eng.htm
To import a firearm from, or export one to, the USA:
This requires legal procedures. They MUST be imported/exported legally. I highly recommend “Borderview” in Lynden, Washington State. They hold both US FFL and Canadian PAL. They can legally move firearms etc. across the Canadian-American border as long as they meet legal requirements. Deactivated ex-firearms from Canada cannot go to the USA.
Do NOT try to smuggle guns from the U.S.A. into Canada or from Canada into the U.S.A.!
Remember this even though there is a double standard in Canada. Do not be like the Toronto policeman did and try to smuggle guns into Canada. This police officer was smuggling an unlicenced, PROHIBITED short barreled and LOADED revolver (not allowed in Canada), PROHIBITED brass knuckles and knives and had more illegal firearms at home. He received a conditional discharge, three-year probation and 20-days suspension. An ordinary citizen would have been convicted and jailed for years. [Reference: 2016-03-08 story “Toronto Cop Caught with Illegal Handgun, Brass Knuckles, Knives at US Border” by Stephen Spencer Davis].
Another police officer was caught (2016?) with an illegally possessed shotgun (he did not have a PAL) and it was stored unsafely as per the law. He too reportedly received a slap on the wrist.
For those who do not know, “concealed carry” is not allowed in Canada, except for bodyguards for politicians such as Prime Minister Trudeau and for a few police detectives. “Open carry” is also very limited (e.g. Armourded Car Guards) and even prospectors carrying armloads of gear in the wilderness have greast difficulty in obtaining a permit to carry handguns for defence against bears, wolves, Wolverines etc. In Canada we are supposed to call 911 … and wait. “When seconds count, the police will be there … in minutes.” (or hours) so please remember ask your assailant to be patient.
