    Default Non support of modern firearms owners.

    I recently became aware that an OFAH senior member at the Ottawa Sportsman Show made slanted comments towards modern firearms. More specifically, he is quoted as saying
    "everything was fine until you people started bring this sort of thing into the woods"
    in reference to black rifles while in the CCFR booth there. Black rifles are the future of hunting, and OFAH insures a number of gun clubs including handgun clubs. I think this mentality has to be addressed in the upper levels of OFAH. It is absolutely unacceptable. We don't drive Model T's anymore, and our firearms have evolved similarly. My Robinson Arms XCR functions no differently than the average wood stocked Remington 7600. OFAH needs to support ALL members, and hunters/shooters as a whole.

    Talk about a DA statement. I don't currently own a "BLACK GUN", but it only because I am not into compition shooting. If they where allowed for hunting, I would have one I am sure. But just because I don't own one does not mean I would say they are not needed, or should not be allowed.

    If you let people chip away at a small part of our sport just because it is not your part of the sport, how long before they are going to get around to stopping you from enjoying your part of the sport.

    What do you mean? Do they kill better than traditional rifles?

    As far as I'm concerned if it legal you can do whatever you want, some are old school and they will not change.
    I have both, to each his own.

    Actually, there are many black rifles that are non restricted in Canada. I've hunted with a Robinson Arms XCR in 6.8 SPC for over 5 years. I own far more blued and wood stocked guns than black rifles, but their ergonomics make them appeal to me.

    Not at all. And therein lies the problem. Although they have a more modern cosmetic look and may be more ergonomic, they function essentially the same as any wooden stocked, blued, semi automatic hunting rifle. So why the hatred, and lack of support for this part of the firearms community?

    Who says you can't use them for hunting? If they're not restricted or prohibited,who cares? Each to their own. Given the current anti-firearms political climate,we better be in lock step with hunters that own and use them,too,or we'll simply be giving the Liberals more ammo to use against us.

    Because they look like war weapon, not hunting guns, and pretty ugly.... And I'm not talking about the regular black stock and forearm rifle (I own a couple) I'm talking about the one in the pictures. I personally don't like them but I will support them because we are all in the same boat so we better support each other.

    Just for the record. Your XCR functions quite a bit differently from a Remington 7600, since it's a pump. I'm sure you meant 740 or 7400.
    "Camo" is perfectly acceptable as a favorite colour.

    Ugh. Caught me there. I was thinking 742/740/7400.

    Lets not forget the Lee Enfield bolt action rifles were weapons of war too. Things evolve with time. Regardless, your support is appreciated.
