    Split fire wood
    Cut wood..
    Pretty much anything that requires allot of movement... and a sling won't work... I tried shoveling snow with my rifle on a sling... it would not work.. we have a massive coyote problem here and every day in near the chickens our deer bait they are near me... the other night they were circling me... but well.. having an un encased shotgun at dark is illegal... (not on my property)... a 22 handgun would of made me feel a lot more comfy than my buck 110 knife did..
    I had coyote prints in my foot prints on my second trip back in the bush that night.. (one for feed one for the salt)..
    And again a shotgun would not of helped.. as I would not of been able to carry out with the 80lb bag of corn...
    Maybe you should be yote hunting instead.

    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.
    Your reasoning is a bit strange. If long guns were restricted to those in uniform, would your logic still apply? I sure hope not. If crossbows and compounds were restricted to those in uniform, would it still apply? How about knives??? Pointy sticks???

    So if Iam not scared the bears stay away?.............................Guess bears like to eat the 6'3" 205 lbs man that soiled himself.....

    I will not say Iam for or against. But I think the mandate should be allowed to be decided by the responsible people, not those who think they know whats good for us, yet the wood to them is trinity bellwoods or the grass in front of queens park.

    As the saying goes
    " Better too have it and not need it, then need it and not have it"

    If I was in a position where I felt it "may" be needed, I would like to think that this democracy of ours would allow us to at least feel protected.

    This is about handguns, not full automatic assault rifles.

    Ok I was going to stay silent, but can't any more. I have been shooting handguns for almost 40 years, for both enjoyment and competition. I also carried a handgun on my duty belt for years before retirement. I have spent lots of time on a range and have known a lot of handgun shooters. I hope some of my retired brothers and sisters don't take offence but.....I would much rather stand beside a civilian handgun shooter than most sworn ones. I have had an officer hit my target on a range on a regular basis. This wouldn't be bad if they were not 5 positions over from me. I have never seen a civilian shooter do this. I have seen range instructors shoot across the range striking a wall with an unintentional discharge. Never seen a civilian do that. there should be nothing wrong with open carry while in the bush. Personally, I think the gang bangers and thugs who carry may think different if they issued CCW's in Canada to anyone who wanted to go thru a course. I live and worked a border town across from Detroit, so we were one of the largest ports of entry for illegal firearms making their way down the 401 to TO. Comparing a hunter with a criminal who carries a gun, and shoots another criminal IS CRIMINAL. We are not criminals, so don't compare me having a handgun in the bush to shoot a grouse to a drug dealer shooting another over turf.

    I hate to break this one to you but many of those "highly trained" individuals are not as highly trained as you may think. Some qualify when they have to and that is it (I have been there and seen it).
