    Hi all - new to the forum and firearms in general. I hail from the great white north where we have atrocious gun laws as most of you probably know. Just wondering if there was any other fellow Canadians rocking a glock? Would be nice to see a sub-forum.

    I love the history of the Leafs and the Habs. I remember the old pictures goalies without masks and players without helmets unbelievable! You said that Canada's gun laws suck I realized this but how hard is it to own a handgun and to head to the range with it.

    I agree, great history between those two with some tough players.

    Regardless of what firearm you own, you need to have a license issued by the federal government. Long guns and rifles require a single course while handguns (restricted); require a second restricted course. Our laws make it illegal to own a firearm with a barrel shorter than 105mm; which means a stock G19 isn't available. Like some States, we can only have 10-round mags. All our handguns require registration and permission to transport. Transport needs to secured in a locked case; which means concealed carry is obviously illegal. There is also a number of in home storage requirements as well...

    On the bright side... We will be getting our very own Canadian version of the G19 with a longer barrel and Canadian engraved flag. Should be arriving this month and the first time Glock has produced a country specific firearm.

    That Canadian Glock sounds like an eventual collectors item. Sorry for the strict gun laws but hang in there and Good Shooting.
