Gonna hafta look that up again


The only hassle free antique class I know of are any and all flintlocks new or antique.
All others need licensed exporters unless prohibited for export out of the US or into Canada.

Within Canada no pal is required for shotguns and rifles made prior to 1898. Pistols still require a PAL based on classification, because they`re still evil hand guns.
Any antique firearm determined to be restricted or prohib, will require appropriate license.

That`s the basics for Canada, so a LE made on or before 1898 located within Canada would not require a PAL or registration...., unless Trudeau F*&^% that up as well!!!
shoot em if you got em

I'm not familiar with the Pukka factor. I believe he is a fellow countryman, but other than that... could someone enlighten an old prairieboy?

EEK!

Close Shilo, but not quite.

There are exclusions to the 1898 date. With long guns, Calibers below 9mm and repeating rifles dont count as antiques, nor do 12g and a bunch of other specified calibers.

So a LE no matter how old, is small bore and repeater. Doesnt count as an antique. Licencing applies.

I was born in Pembroke, Ont. when my Dad was stationed in Petawawa until Dad got transferred to Shilo, Mb in '65. I was 5. He passed in '67 while still in the military. We had to move to Brandon, Mb. Since both my Mom and Dad's roots and family were in Alexander, Mb (10 miles west), that helped a lot. Long story short (too late, I know) several months after living on the farm, we moved to Brandon, where I still live.

"Pukkah factor" is a play on words By Pukkah Bundhook & myself.
It refers to "The rusty sheriffs badge" clenching extensively under stress.

Shilo,
 
Matchlock, wheellock and as you said above, Flintlock,  new long-arms need no licensing in Canada.
 
A-Square,
Funny thing is, I Never fancied wearing a bunny costume, and don't think I'd fill it out right if I did!
 
LOL.

I always thought he was referencing the giant rabbit as well!

(Course..a Pukka is nothing like a "continental Giant" in the rabbit class)

I would take you up on it Sham, as I only shoot on my Own range! LOL, but then again, the squirrels might never let me forget it...  I don't think I could stand squirrel ridicule...

It would be awesome to have an acreage and a nice personal range. My wife would never live in the country! I'm fairly lucky as my range is only 10 minutes away. Since I've retired and go out during the week mostly, I have found the club books different law enforcement agencies for practice, so at that time, the range is closed to members. Luckily it's mostly pistol, so the rifle range section is still open to us... unless the Horsemen or city SWAT are practicing sniping.

I think there are some pretty good marksmen in that group. Funny story. Last summer I forgot to check the on-line calendar for the range and went out. At the rifle range, there was one Horseman there. He told me the rifle range was booked for the day. I had just loaded some Sierra Matchkings and wanted to try them out. He felt sorry for me, and said if I was quick, I could shoot a few. I set up, walked down range and set up my 4" black round bull stapled to an empty Brewhouse Pilsner box (he was impressed!). I was using my sniper clone. I only took three shots, rather quickly. Went and got the target... when I came back to the bench he was over looking at my rifle. He asked to see the target. I got lucky. Slightly less the 2" group with two touching. He laughed and said he really liked the rifle and couldn't see why they spend $$$$$ on custom sniper rifle! Good guy!
