Re: [WarOf1812] Buying a musket
- If you are Canadian, and you purchase a musket in
Canada, you do not have to register it with the
Canadian Firearms Registry. According to the
Government, it does not meet the criteria for registry
because it is a flintlock. If it was percussion cap,
that would be a different story.

try to get some confirmation on this.
> --Dave WebbWell if you buy 25Ib's of blackpowder in bulk (box), to get around
this law just divide it up to all your members. That's what we do on
occasion. Have you seen the price of powder lately? The last time we
bought some it was close to $16.00 a Ib!
In regards to registering a musket. As mentioned you don't have to
but do take note of who you vote for in the next Canadian Federal
election. The Conservative party say's they'll scrap the gun registry
program if elected into power....
