Ah, you are just complaining about the measily three day waiting period to get approved, that's nothing! :rofl: I took a safety course in 1978, then 2 years ago the safety course again, and a "prohibited" weapons course as well. The terminology here is nuts, they call a pistol or revolver "restricted" if the barrel length is over 4 inches, and "prohibited" if under 4 in. You can still have them mind you, but if you had a pistol barrel length shorter than 4 inches prior to 2000, then you can get another short length one today. My Ruger P-85 was 4.5 inches, so the government does not allow or trust me to have one today!! How's that for logic?! For an armed guard job I had for a while (a large American security firm) we actually had a Navy Seal train us on 38 S&W and Remington 12 ga. It was a lot of fun and I finished 2nd in the class. Saskatchewan farm boys are and were well respected in WW2 for their ability to shoot. The whole Vietnam thing with the "spray and pray" just doesn't cut it if you ask me.
