Random thought of the day:

This message is brought to you in part by the Department of Useless Advice and Non-Security.

"Remember, if a gunman shows up to your place of business make sure to lock the doors and hide under your desk. If you must fight back, make sure to use a pair of scissors. It will save your life against the gunman."

I was in Walmart today and figured since you guys down south are having such a hard Tim finding ammunition, I'd wonder over and see how we were doing up here in Canada. Wouldn't you now it, we're doing aces......for now. There was probably 15 boxes of Winchesters white box .223 for 9.67 a piece and all the popular rifle calibers. Even the amount of .22LR that was on hand surprised me.

I don't think the situation in the US will affect the availability of ammo in Finland, but the supply of AR's will start to dry up if the buying craze goes on any longer. Luckily, there are some European made AR's available and one gun shop has started to import the Canadian NEA AR's but their prices may go up if that's all we can get here.

On a more positive note, I applied for my first handgun permits yesterday, for a 9mm and a .22lr. Still have to do an interview at the local police station next month. The handgun permits are a PIA nowadays to get, you need to have 2 years of documented practice with someone else's gun and certificate signed by a firearms instructor for the application...

I'm so glad we don't have to go through all that to get a handgun here in Canada. We just have to show that we can safely handle one and show we know how to properly safety check and disable one. Then we send off the test results, a as sport photo, $60.00 and we have our license. After that we just have to join a shooting club/range.
