Procedure: Purchasing Restricted Firearms @ Cabela’s

Recently, the procedure for buying a Restricted-level firearm has been made more clear. Although your experiences may vary depending on where you decide to buy, Cabela’s Regina has their process spelled out clearly:

Purchasing a Restricted Firearm at Cabela’s

When you purchase a restricted firearm at Cabela’s;

-We will take a deposit on the firearm (typically 95% of the sale price)

-We will initiate the transfer of ownership from us to you through the Canadian Firearms Centre (CFC).

-Generally, to complete the transfer, you have to phone the CFC (1-700-731-4000). They may request you send them a copy of your gun club membership card. The quickest way to accomplish this is to take a picture of the card with your smartphone and email the image to them. You could also fax it to them or mail a copy of the card to them. Ask them to email you the “BUYERS COPY” of the Transfr Notification when the transfer is completed. If you don’t ask the CFC to email the notification, they will mail (via Canada Post) it out to you which will delay the pickup process.

-Generally, when they email you the Buyers Copy, the “SELLERS COPY” of the Transfer notification is faxed to Cabela’s.

-WHEN CABELA’S GETS THE SELLERS COPY OF THE TRANSFER NOTIFICATION, WE WILL PHONE YOU TO LET YOU KNOW WE HAVE OUR COPY OF THE TRANSFER. WE CAN ONLY RELEASE THE FIREARM ONCE WE HAVE BOTH COPIES [SELLERS & BUYERS] OF THE TRANSFER NOTIFICATION.

To pick up your Restricted you will need to have the following:

-Buyers Copy of your Transfer Notification

-Your PAL

-Your Receipt

-AND IN SOME CASES A LOCKABLE CASE. SOME GUNS COME IN LOCKABLE CASES, SOME DO NOT. YOU MAY HAVE TO PURCHASE A CASE.

We can then complete the financial transaction and you may then take possession of your new firearm.

First Shot Event: Regina Fish & Game League

RFGL location west of Condie Road, just south of Highway 734, off Exit A of Highway 11 north.

Recently, Regina Fish & Game League special events coordinator Bobbie C. was kind enough to forward us information regarding one option for shooters just northwest of Regina, Saskatchewan (about ten minutes out of town on highway 11). Here’s some information regarding an upcoming First Shot club event:

“Hey everyone:

I am the special events coordinator for the Regina Fish & Game League. I would like to extend this invitation to everyone – if you, or anyone you know are looking to shoot a firearm for the first time – rifles, shotguns, muzzleloader, handguns, or even archery. June 10th 2018 at the Condie Gun Range (RFGL main range) we will be holding our annual First Shot event.

It’s free of charge – hamburgers, hotdogs and refreshments will be available. The event on will start at 12:00PM, and go until 5:00PM. We are located south of highway 11 on Exit A (the old highway into Lumsden) across from the Condie Nature Refuge. I will post reminders over the next few months up until the date. Please pass this along to anyone you may know that would be interested in joining the fun!”

Range Update: Dysart Gun Club

Dysart Townsite, Highway 22, and Highway 639

Recently, student Dylan C. was kind enough to forward us information regarding one option for shooters out at Dysart, Saskatchewan. Here’s a letter from December 7th, 2017 to existing Dysart Gun Club members:

“Dear Gun Club Member:

This letter is to advise that I have just received the new forms for 2018 and you can now renew your membership for the new shooting season. We have been in operation now for six years on a break even basis with the Range fee at $5.00. Other than postage and stationary, a complementary dinner voucher for the peoperty owners who allow us the use of the site, we have traditionally donated a raffle prize to the Touchwood Hills Wildlife Branch who sponsors us and provides the necessary liability insurance we are required to have. There comes a point when the site will have to be cleaned up and the contaminated soil in the berm will have to be disposed of. The Owners should not have to bear that cost and consequently the Range fee will increase to $10.00 with any surplus going into escrow for purposes of cleaning the site. We currently have $570.00 in savings due to some non-member rentals in 2016.

The THWF membership remains unchanged at $25.00 for individuals, with an additional $5.00 for each affiliate membership (spouse and child under 18 years of age) to a maximum family membership of $35.00 and then add the $10.00 Range fee for each shooter. The total fees for an individual shooter are $35.00. 

Please make cheques payable to the Dysart Gun Club.

John Grohs, Treasurer.”
