The vagueness of Canadian Storage Laws are frustrating for me. I am planning on moving my PAL level air rifles from my fathers place, to my own. I need to know if anyone else has a similar idea to mine.

I have a very shallow closet, it has an outswinging door. The door is solid wood has a keyed lock, and security hinges. I can add a deadbolt as well. My rifles all have trigger locks already.

Should this be satisfactory? I have no-one to really discuss, this forum is my go-to. I am all about following the law, and of course safety. But the vagueness.....

You can throw a non-restricted under a bed or in a non-locking closet so long as it is trigger locked. In a locked closet with a trigger lock is more than required.

AirForce,

I was looking at that site, my PAL manual also looking at the ancient VHS tapes. I figured I was going over and beyond what was needed as well.

Thanks for your help!

You can display non-restricted Firearms (eg. on a gun rack, or hanging on the wall) as long as they have a trigger lock and the ammunition is stored separately.... The only time you need a locked closet or gun safe is if you want to store the ammunition with it....

A locked room is suffice. I just did my crfsc and that was specifically mentioned.

Doesn't matter what you got, they still will charge you. Someone had their like 500lbs safe broken into that took drills, torches and tools. 2 days to break into, Still charged the owner for unsafe storage. SAD.

I got mine min a locked room, in a bared closet. The pal rated ones are trigger locked on a rack, while my PB are in a locked cabinet. restricted are in a cabinet also trigger locked. I'm sure the police would find some way to un safe storage.

The locked room is more than enough. Or the trigger lock.

If your guns are stored in a room - the room must be for your guns and/or ammo only - that is the way I read the section, many years ago. That may have changed.

Having 2 locks on the door is a benefit to you- in court - 2 locks.

Additionally, I have locked containers for the handguns inside this 'room' and all the handguns have trigger locks - thus 4 locks on the handguns.

An RCMPoliceman told me double locks ie: 2 locks on the doors was a "good thing for judges to hear".

There is some rifle, shotgun and handgun ammo in the lockup as well - however,that is no problem- it's OK.

There might even be a sword and/or my snorkel and fins & a hat in the gun locker, but that should be OK as well.

Seriously, guys? It's on the RCMP website....

http://www.rcmp-grc.gc.ca/cfp-pcaf/fs-f ... ge-eng.htm

Quote:
Unload and lock your firearms!

Store the ammunition separately or lock it up. It can be stored in the same locked container as the firearms.

Non-restricted firearms


• Attach a secure locking device, such as a trigger lock or cable lock (or remove the bolt) so the firearms cannot be fired; OR

• Lock the firearms in a cabinet, container or room that is difficult to break into.

Note the word OR in bold.... It is even in bold on the RCMP website.... :roll:

Hahahah...

Plumbing code states "OR" as "one or the other"(this sentance or the other) but you have to do one.. or the other. I bet OR has a totally dif meaning when it comes to the RCMP.
