    Hunting with handguns is illegal in Canada, if it was made legal then so be it and I'd support it. However, that being said, I will not be one of those who fight for the re-introduction of handguns to hunting in Canada.

    I love to hunt with a handgun and have done so since a small child. When hog hunting in the thick black swamps of the South there isn't much more convenient and adequate to kill poisonous snakes and hogs than a handgun.

    People hunt with .36 cal muzzle loader rifles and handguns back home during "Primitive Weapon Season." Surely a modern handgun in .357, 44 mag, etc. is more than adequate for most game. Bigger cals. are available and adequate for Brownies, etc.

    The only general requirement in the States is to open carry in plain view for the Game Warden's benefit.

    All kinds of people hunt deer with handguns quite successfully. If you can take moose with archery gear of course the handgun is effective and useful. If we could hunt with them I would own them. Right now I can't see "any" government risking any political capital expanding handgun use and ownership in Canada.

    There is about as much of a chance of that ever being allowed again in Canada as there would be not having to pay income tax.

    Isn't it interesting how long a thread that deals with at topic not a single contributor believes in it becoming reality anytime soon (i.e. never) can go on and on?

    This forum given enough time could discuss all the world's problems.

    The way I understand this is you would still need to be a member of a range and have the ATT with the ability to hunt being somehow just an additional endorsement allowing you to hunt. Seems simple enough and a great opportunity, but agree that with the current anti gun Liberals it would be a stretch.

    I think you'd be stuck with general firearms season.

    I heard this through a friend, and believe part of the CSSA. Mostly just letter writing at the moment, but I think that whatever organization anyone here belongs to, if they feel the same way they should make their voices heard but also writing letters to their clubs as well as MPP's and MP's.
