Hi, I live in Canada and am the biggest gun newbie there is :P I don't even have a FAC! So, I have a few n00bish questions to ask: 1. How can I get a FAC?*don't laugh please* 2. Do I need anything special to get a M16-type rifle? What about handguns? 3. Also had my eye on the Ak-47, but I fear it's been banned. What Assualt type rifles are banned? 4. I saw a M4 for $2225 Canadian (1392 US). Is this a rip-0ff? How much do these guns go for? 5. What company makes the best M4? 6. Any other help you could give a n00b would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.

If you do not have an PAL you are SOL with regard to the AK. All of the cool guns are prohibitted except the AR which is restricted. The only COOL non restricteds are very expensive ie SIG 540 @2700 G36 @2700 Robinson M96 @ 2600 They are probhibited under class 12(5) by C-68 The M4 however is just restricted at this time. New US regs however are making them a little more rare for the moment. The best prices I have seen are from Wolverine. They sell Armalite. United sell the bushmasters but they charge like hell for them Personally I am building my own M4 I am using a Eagle arms lower from Wolverine and buying the remainder of the parts in the USA. If this is going to be your very first gun you might want to consider a 10/22 they are cheap and you can shoot all day for a few bucks. Where in Canada are you located? Email me if you need anyhelp Regards Stormbringer

Funny mike but here is the rub.... In the states you have assault bans as well. A real M4 would cost a mint as it is preban. Well here in Canada silly as our laws are they consider the M4 and AR series to be just like handguns.. Therefore if you can buy a handgun you can buy an AR. Due to this you can also put any barrel on it you like...including 7.5 inchers etc...

Bushmaster has a M4 clone...non-collapsible stock. If you want a "pre-ban" be ready to pay big dollars, here or in CAN. [url]http://www.bushmaster.com[/url]
