    You can possess ammo without a PAL. You just can't buy it.

    I was in the Niagara Region during the holiday and I stopped into Lawry Shooting Sports in Caledonia to pick-up 1000 x .45 ACP 230 Gr RN. Lawry's carry Caliber bullets at a good price.

    Bullets and other material related to reloading are not covered in the Firearms Act. These are covered by the Explosives Act and most retailers will simply want a Driver's License. If someone is going to Lawry's for you it is just as easy to call ahead and talk with Joanne. She is very good and looks after all of the reloading items they sell.

    Regardless of the fact that components can be purchased without having to present a PAL some dealers still insist on it . --- I remember an incident , where a fellow (ahead of me in the line-up) was trying to buy air-gun-pellets and the clerk demanded to see a license . --- The two-of-them were hemmn and haawwn about it until I intervened and "educated" the sales-clerk . I sarcastically asked him if he wanted to see my fishing-license because I was acquiring a few lures . --- Unfortunately , not too many people seem to balk at a request like that , soooo --- . General store-policy : Minimum-age of 18 is required for "certain" transactions . The "pellet-purchaser" was at least twice that age . --- It may be easier to go along with their demand BUT stand firm by your rights . --- In the OPs case , since he was sending some-one-else , it might be less aggravating to send some-one who is licensed .

    I was always told that you could buy components but not the complete round, that was why I needed to show my PAL to buy BBs. If this guy will get the lead I will give him a couple of boxes of ammo, but he got ten rounds with the gun and might figure he has ample for moose as he only uses one 30-30 round for deer, so he says......

    Just a bit of further clarification, to demonstrate how different levels of government can mess you up. The federal legislators go out of their way to side step the issue of airguns being classed as "imitation firearms,"
    (although there are a few instants where they might be, very few) not so the province of Ontario.

    In the province of Ontario low power ariguns that do not require registration are classed as "imitation firearms" and can only be sold to those over the age of 18. As well there is legislation in Ontario that classifies airgun pellets as ammunition and requires that retailers record the identification of all ammunition purchasers.

    Thanks for raising this topic, I've always been puzzle how airgun, which can have the realistic appearance of an actual firearm, were not branded by the Feds. as an imitation firearm, and classed "prohibited." Some research, promoted by your comments, has clarified things a bit.

    An imitation gun that is designed to shoot BBs is OK (as long as they are slow BBs), but if the imitation gun is just designed and built to look real, but will not shoot anything, then it is prohibited.... A real gun that has been welded so it cannot do anything, is OK for anyone of any age to play with. Similarly a gun that is designed to look real, but fires blanks or flares seems to be fine for anyone.

    Didn't think it was worth a thread of it's own so I looked for one vaguely on topic and on lead.

    I gave up on Range lead and Wheel weights. I bought a wreck sailboat with 400lbs of lead ballast. It was a real bugger to break down the block...but it is all in 1lbs bars now. Boat yards are great place to get lead ballast....pure lead.

    BTW, the price of the boat was $0.00, if I took it away.
