    Its not really a case of weither any handguns are suitable for killing game. Experience has proved that they are capable. They are also capable of shooting casual targets such as wood blocks and tin cans and providing many hours of entertainment.
    The big point is our government trusting us, even after strict checks and balances that show we are safe, rational, educated, sober people with no violent tendancies.
    They used to trust us, up until the seventies.....I've been told that some city police forces don't even trust their uniformed officers to take their firearms home when off duty.

    A handgun residing in a proper holster is safer than any long gun that is being carried by hand.

    Sure thing, if we allow hunting with handguns, there will be more deaths in the field. We need to ban all firearms for hunting, only bow hunting should be allowed. Nobody other that the police or military should be allowed to own firearms, need to take them all away,,,,,, Rightttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt.
    No hand gun or any other firearm has ever shot anyone. Can't say the same for the careless person holding it. Refer to the 4 rules by Jeff Cooper.

    1. All guns are always loaded.
    2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
    3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
    4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it. óJeff Cooper

    Follow those rules and everyone is safe. Violate those rules,,,,,,,
    If you can't obey those rules, perhaps you shouldn't be hunting period, and that includes bows as well.

    First you need to find out why handguns were banned from hunting. Next you need to dispute the reasons with scientific evidence. Then you need to petition (25 signatures each petition) Then be prepared to fight the fight...

    Hand guns are not banned for hunting. They are legal for hunting. I don't know of any Provincial legislation such as the FWCA that says we cannot use a handgun to hunt. In fact we can use a pellet pistol for hunting. The Federal Government won't let us carry them. If the federal Gov't let us carry them....they would be legal to hunt with.

    The regulations specifically state " You may use semi-automatic or repeating firearms for hunting in Ontario, but not handguns that are restricted or prohibited firearms or fully automatic firearms." There is nothing stating that you may not use a prescribed antique pistol. In fact it is very clear that the pistol can not be restricted or prohibited but have fun explaining that to a CO in the woods. Also you would be restricted to small game only as the summary of firearms restrictions for hunting in ontario specifically refers to Rifles, shotguns, bows and muzzle loaders for big game and turkey

    If the Feds would give us back our permits, it would not take long for the MNR to make the changes to the printed regs....

    So how are you going to get the Feds to give you back your permits?

    You do not need to present this, the OP was not about big game, this was about hunting with a handgun period. They do not have a restriction on small game unless there is a big game season open in Ontario. Why would a 22LR be able to be used for hunting rabbits?

    The government should not be part of the "what can be used for hunting?" discussion.

    They could change the regs. All I'm saying as they read now there is nothing saying that you cannot use an antique pistol for small game
