    YOU PEOPLE

    I hope you people can help. How does the CFO revoke a pal.do they phone or send a letter in the mail or do they send the pony boys down to pull a high river. We have friend staying with us who has mental health issues When he is on the meds its ok the last couple of times the meds ran out and life got to him he threatened suicide online. His mailing address is up north i do not know when the last time he picked up the mail he has been staying with us and we are trying to get his shit together for him ( find him a job and a place to live). The pony boys up north phoned us 2 weeks ago and asked if i could come and pick up his rifle and keep it he gave it to them to hold last summer when he had a break down. that when the wife told them whats been happening so i would think the CFO will be all over this.

    If he holds a PAL and is allowed to have a firearm, you should be ok.
    Just keep things locked up and the key on your person.

    If it was last summer, if the CPFO was going to revoke his PAL, it'd be done already and the RCMP wouldn't be asking you to pick up his property. It'd be confiscated and most likely would already have been destroyed. There's no provision in the FA for them to store a firearm of any kind.
    However, as far as you holding it, all that matters is that you have a PAL.

    According to lawyers who deal with PAL revocations, the local police are simply excellent at grabbing the PAL card within 24 hours after the CFO revokes it. (which is a useful tidbit for private sales -- if you see an unexpired PAL it's vastly probably valid.)

    As for the firearms themselves, in one case where there were depression concerns, a person without a PAL was given the bolts and magazines for the firearms, but the bulk of the now useless firearms were kept by the PALer. After two months and the 'all clear', the bolts and magazines were returned.

    Sounds right.
    The PAL has to correspond to the firearm (non-restricted PAL endorsement for non-restricted firearm, restricted PAL endorsement for restricted firearms, 12.x PAL endorsement for corresponding 12.x firearm)

    Police secure firearms in their stations, and return them when appropriate. Happens all the time.
    The biggest recent example would be High River.
    Sometimes they end up rusted & scratched or slightly worse, having been stored in a pile of other guns without cases, but they are returned.
