    Default Living in Ontario Canada what do you use for protection when SHTF?

    Heh guys, I live in Ontario. Not the USA were the #1 type of firearm seems to be a AR-15. I like the AR platform as well but since they are Restricted here in Canada I just have'nt spent the $1500 on a target shooter. If I could hunt with it I would probably justify the Coin. With that being said I have several other firearms that I would use that should do the trick. I have my Restricted license and am in the market for probably a glock 17, that I hope to have within a month or so. Here is my stuff. Lets see what all of us Canucks have.







    From Top to Bottom --- Remington 870 supermag 12 gauge Pump ---Remington model 700BDL Bolt action .300WinMag---Ruger10/22 Semi auto .22lr with 25 round magazine----1950 Russian SKS semi auto rifle---

    Next up is definetely a handgun, I will post the pic when I get it.

    Lets see what us Canucks are packing when SHTF.

    A fellow Ontarian here,

    I have no license and no gun(s) yet, but, when I do go through that process of getting licensed this spring, I want to start acquiring pretty much the same list of things you have:
    something 12 guage, a semi-auto .22, a bolt action deer-hunting-capable rifle (.300, .303, .308... something along these lines), and funny enough lately I've been thinking "hmmm SKS, or, M1 Garand?"


    My protection right now?
    gerber machete, benchmade knife, baseball bat...
    I.E. Nothing adequate for distance.

    Not to hijack, but I lived in Ontario about 11 years ago, back when registration was first started. What is a "restricted "license? Long gun or pistol? Or both? Do you have to have a license to own ANY firearm? Thanks for the info in advance.
    Also, do you have ammo import restrictions?

    In order to own a firearm in Canada, we need a license. In order to own a "restricted" firearm (AR15's, short rifles, handguns, etc.) we need a special license. There are ammo importation restrictions as well as firearm importation restrictions. It does nothing to prevent gun crime - it's all feel-good liberal anti-gun crap.

    Restricted is certain semiauto "assault rifles" (AR's etc,) and handguns. Prohibited firearms are some "assault type" (AK's submachine guns, full auto's etc) and handguns with barrels shorter than 4 1/4" or of .32 or .25 cal. The law makes no sense what so ever. AR restricted, AK prohibited, VZ58 nothhing, Sig's swiss arms black special - nothing. Its easy enough to get a restricted permit but forget about prohibited. Its a shame we landed up with this P.O.S. law.

    We have to have a license to buy any type of firearm. Need the same license with a restricted class on it to buy non prohibited assault rifles and handguns.

    And BTW its easier to get the ammo and guns into Canada than it is to get them out of the states.

    Good grief, I had no idea it had gotten that bad up there. Thanks "I think" for the update.

    Laws are not physical prevention, they only apply to the willing law-abiding. Come SHTF my number one priority will be survival, not fulfilling some ridiculous requirement of this socialist ****hole we call a country.

    To my understanding (Hubby has the registered guns), the Sherriff will be knocking at the door when the SHTF, demanding the guns. What would be ideal is to have an unregistered gun in Ontario.
