On one occasion I counted over 100 rounds going off and heard rounds zip past me, later I found empty 223 boxes. Those individuals showed an absolute lack of self discipline which would only be compounded with the addition of hand guns to the mix.

    As a former resident of the UK I can say that we in Canada have the best hunting opportunities I have seen, the hunting in Europe is a pay-per-use system only for the rich. We as hunters must maintain a level of respect and defence against that type of system (ie anti hunters). As part of that, being able to compromise and quietly go about our business will help ensure the longevity of the sport.

    Just my 2 cents.
    Before the gun laws in UK police carried whistles and wooden sticks... now they carry bullet proof vests and guns... sounds like it helped allot...

    Next to go I heard are knives... aren't point sharp knives on the chopping block?

    What's after that? Hammers? Ya... UK... they know what they are doing.....

    Edit... it appears I'm wrong.. handguns are dangerous....

    Since when has Ottawa had a big handgun issue? Im in and around the city all the time and aside for the police I dont see any handguns. Dont see gangbangers running around waving guns in peoples faces. Besides how does people carrying handguns in the bush have anything to do with the ammount of guns in the city? Do you have any idea how many RPAL holders there are? Do you have any idea how easy it is to go to Detroit and pick up whatever you want?


    If someone wants an illegal gun they will get them. Period.
    First of all buddy, I stated that it was just my opinion
    Second, we've had more shootings in this city this year (with hand guns) than ever before, we just had 2 last week. All gang related apparently, maybe try reading the paper while your in town.
    Third, I think everyone on here is allowed their opinion, that's why HA threw it out, unlike you, I didn't say I was right, I just said it was my opinion.
    AND I STAND BY IT.

    They are already legal and very useful for hunting, so it would be banning something and taking away guns people already own

    What do the illegal guns in the hands of gangbangers in any part of the country have to do with the rest of us?

    Handguns end up in the wrong peoples hands and are used by gangbangers as some sort of status symbol and the more there are around, the more they get.
    We have a huge issue right now in Ottawa with handguns and it would be worse if more people had them.

    This is just my opinion, but IMHO, hunters don't need anything to do with handguns

    Ig

    By the way, they make a very short 30.30 rifle called a Trapper model and it is exactly for that, trappers
    Don't know of any trappers that carry a 'Trapper'. Trappers normally carry .22's - often takedown models that can be packed.

    100 rounds... that's just to get the barrel warmed up.
    I don't shoot near as much now - but when I was younger, 100 rounds wasn't really a lot - particularly if there were 2 or 3 guys shooting.
    .22's - I wasn't to hard to go through a brick in an afternoon. Especially with the semi-auto.

    I don't have much use for handguns because of the restrictions on them. But if you could open carry, I'd sure get one. I spend a lot of time in the bush, but frequently don't bother with a gun because my hands are full - cutting trails, bush work, stuff like that.

    Lol "buddy"
    Ok.

    Forget the papers! Lets look at 2013 city of ottawa crime stats!
    Homicides-9
    Impaired-649
    Arson-106
    Dangerous operation of a motor vehicle-95

    So by your "opinion" we should be sure to ban vehicles, liquor, beer, wine and even matches?

    Didn't say I was right! Just questioned every opinion you set forth. [emoji57]
    How is it one careless cigarette can cause a forest fire, but it takes a whole box of matches to light a campfire?

    For protection on the trap line or those into exploration work the only practical firearm to carry is a handgun. And they're not much value tucked under a parka should you need to access it real quick.
    However, I question the actual need of one for protection anywhere in Ontario including the far north where polar bears might be encountered. Their real value is in dispatching an animal caught up in a leg hold trap.
