Hi people,

I should have done it first. Ok, I'm from Montreal. My real name is Serge. A family man, have children, motorcyclist (Yamaha FZ1 - I can ride it all day long), fisher and photographer. Gonna be a hunter very soon - I have done my exams (PAL, RPAL and hunting), so my paperwork is already on its way to the RCMP. I'll probably buy some good shotgun and maybe an airgun break barrel or PCP - it depends on if there are any places to charge an air tank not too far from my area.
I'm also a handy man, I fix and do service for my motorcycles myself including the electrical part, able to do many things.
Who knows, maybe it will happen to ride or shoot together one day. Whatever we doing - it is important to have fun and enjoy it.

Salut Serge,

welcome to the zoo. I was going to make a joke that a Air Airm TDR would be a great gun to lug around on a motorcycle... but I figure I won't try to influence your choice just yet :lol:

Hi buddy,
thank you.
btw, I was thinking if it is legal to carry an airgun when you're on a motorcycle? Unfortunately it is all too restricted here in Canada. I.e. otherwise I would probably buy something as compact as Cricket and find a way to take it with me (backpack maybe..?) while on my moto. I don't like to have all those bags or boxes attached to my Maha, so backpack is my choice for travel.

Perfectly legal to do so... as long as you follow the regulations for the type of firearm you are carrying.

One of the reasons we used to attend more pistol match (ISSF/PPC) was that it's easier to carry on a bike :D

Hey npMtl
Welcome to the CAF, I myself am fairly new here. I found that this is the place for us Canadian air gunners
to find info that is really hard to find online, lots of members have great info. These folks know how to make a guy feel welcome and are active using the forum.
Enjoy your time here, I know i have :D
Regards,
Old Dude
