    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 154,538 “Prohibited” firearms were registered to individuals at that date.
