    Yep that's what it was all about. Gonna have to find fun in simpler things. Trading in the Coronas and premium micro brewers for Bush ICE or Lake piss.

    It's nuts though doing a career change. You feel like a total noob. All those years of experience, all the street cred and seniority you built up in your former industry, it's all out the window and doesn't mean anything. I'm going up against kids with the same stupid useless BA I had, but there's is fresher. You find yourself saying "back when I worked here we did this thing this way", way too much.

    Keep that in mind people, if you do a career change late in the game it's gonna feel like you lost a couple inches down there.

    As for my guns, called the CFO. No problem storing them at my other former residence that I still have rights/accessibility over. As long as no unlicensed people can access them. Whatever it's better this way because my other residence is outside of Toronto proper so any possible Mayor John Tory gun bans mean squat.

    When you're doing a career change you are a total noob. The only difference is that you probably have proof you show up every day and work when you're there.
    "...Mayor John Tory gun bans mean squat..." Yep. Tory has no jurisdiction to ban anything anyway.
    "...maybe having less money ain't such a..." Try it some time. It means you don't eat properly.

    Here is a copy-paste from a Canadian lawyer specializing in firearms law. I won't name the lawyer for obvious reasons. This opinion touches a scenario which is close to the one you seek answers for but it is not exactly the same:

    The Firearms Act does not provide for the registration of a restricted firearm to one, or to more than one, specific address; the Firearms Act provides that a restricted firearm is registered to a person (and to only one person). The restricted firearm can only be possessed by a person (whether the person to whom the firearm is registered, or another properly licensed person under the borrowing provisions) at their dwelling-house or at such other place authorized by the CFO. A person can only have one dwelling-house at a time, their primary residence. Under the Automatic Authorization to Transport attached to your PAL, you may transport the firearm from your residence to any approved range in the province of residence, and back, “by a route that is, in all of the circumstances, reasonably direct” [emphasis added]. The position of the Ontario CFO, as I understand it (and with which I agree) is that where you are going from your primary residence to your secondary residence and from there back and forth to an approved range nearer your secondary residence than your primary residence, possession at the secondary residence is thereby authorized within the meaning of the Firearms Act. Provided staying at the secondary residence is reasonable in all of the circumstances, you should be covered, as this is no different than staying at a hotel for an out-of-town shooting competition.
