    The number of so-called “Restricted” handguns and rifles owned by Canadian individuals rose to a record in June after more than five years of uninterrupted monthly increases, as federally licensed gun owners bought semi-automatic pistols and rifles for plinking, recreation and competition. Target shooting is one of Canada’s safest and most-popular sporting activities. 833,170 “Restricted” firearms were registered to individuals at 30 June 2018, according to RCMP data provided to TheGunBlog.ca. 154,538 “Prohibited” firearms were registered to individuals at that date.
