    Question Transportation questions.

    Hey all, few quick questions about firearm transportation.

    Say, i plan to go to a range after work, can i bring my restricted firearm with me (Of course locked in a case with trigger lock attached & in the trunk) then go to the range after work?

    Or do i have to get home to pickup my gun after work then head over to the range?

    Also, another case scenario, if i want to go to the range with my friends in one car,

    is it ok to have my guns in the trunk (Locked in case) and go pick up my friend who brings his own guns then head to the range?

    Some ppl told me that i must head over to the range straight back and forth only from home, without any detours.

    No you cannot not. You must store them at home, and after work travel and pick them up. Your ATT does not cover your place of work.

    Yes picking up a friend while heading to the range is fine. I stop for a bite to eat and a coffee. Before I head home from the range on Friday nights.

    You don't need to transport ammo in one case vs. Another. You're not required to lock up ammo fitting transport either. You're required to keep non restricted empty and restricteds empty and locked up double.

    I use the same backpack for ammo as I use as a carry on when I fly. Needless to say I check real carefulill for loose rounds before I go to the airport.

    Any bag. 98% of the guys I shoot with just throws it in whatever ( PB jar, to proper ammo dividers ) and into a range bag. As long as the gun being transported by law. It doesn't matter.

    I always thought this was silly. It will cover my hotel room when traveling to shoots in other cities but won't cover my vehicle in my own city.

    That being said I am probably one of the lucky few whose ATT does allow me to take his restricted firearms to work but still :P

    One thing I've learned, never ask an RCMP Officer about Firearms Law

    Yeah but you work at a gun store, so your ATT covers that.

    I don't ask officers firearm laws. I ask them would you charge someone if they did this?

    Well it's because we are a gunsmithing shop foremost that allows me to take my guns to work to give them a nice bath while listening to some Barry Manilow.

    But it all shows you how much of a joke the ATT system is.

    "No your ATT does not allow you to keep your guns locked up inside your vehicle while at work for 8 hours. We don't care if you have to travel an hour to work, then back an hour, then drive again past work for another hour to go to the range! Oh you're traveling to a different city for a couple days? Go right ahead then!"
