How does that work for our friends in the North?
To buy a shoulder arm /rifle...for hunting or target shooting, we should complete a short 2 days course. That gives you the right to ask for an AAAF(autorisation d'acquisition d'arme a feu). Then you can get a shoulder arm.
But for pistol or revolver JUST to go to shoot to a range then it becomes much more complicated. The AAAF is needed plus an other course for the security and how these arms work. Then you ask for a special buying permit and for a transport permit. Don't get catch with a fist arm out of the road from your house to the shooting range...the transport permit is ONLY good for going between A and B locations. Don't even think about carrying a gun.
In fact it's very difficult and problematic to have a restricted arm (pistol or revolver) in Québec. Anyways, if you have a gun, any kind of, don't use it here to defend yourself cause you are instantly the bad guy. Get hurt, rubbed, abused...then just call 911.
So I sold/almost gave my 2 arms a few years ago: a nice Colt 45 ACP St-St and a Ruger 22 Bull Barrel. Was too much complicated to keep them. But I still have 2 Henry lever action and a Marlin 30-30
As you can see all is Perfect here in the North
