View Full Version : Question ATT and AR type firearm for hunting

First if this has been asked I apologize.
Now of course restricted weapon (AR platform) is illegal to hunt with since it can only be transported to and from the range/gun club, and to gunsmith's. If the CP proposed changes get past and the ATT becomes part of the RPAL would that not allow one to hunt with with your favourite AR-15 or 10? or will the ATT only be good for transport as I said above? I ask this since I've read that some want to hunt with there AR. :pot:

Eh, depends exactly on what the wording of the changes is. The most probable outcome is that they will still specify an authorized range.

Now, my personal preference would be "Any lawful destination for any legal purpose.", but I don't forsee that happening.
