Lol hand loads..always remember back when I was young, probably around 8-9 my dad used to have an AR15 before they became restricted

I used to shoot that thing all day long, great fun

Then one day we went to the range and he put in his hand loaded rounds, probably holding it just casually in my shoulder, put one round through it and lay the gun down and go cry down the hallway cause it startled me so lol

Literally 25 minutes after you left, I ordered a charger from a place in Kelowna. I bought the basic charger for just under $400. Not bad at all. One shop in Alberta had a charger with a nice Boyd's wood stock. But I'd rather start with fewer parts so I don't feel bad when I change them out.

I just love my 10/22.

That's the one.
It works well, has lots of room, and doesn't break the bank.

But......

Mine has let me down before. It doesn't like certain battery brands, and will sometimes jam. The key "works"... but not always. In the last three years, I've had a couple of instances where I found myself wasting 5 minutes, cursing and messing with the key.

That's why it would be nice to get a high quality safe, and retire this one to a different room.

I had a feeling that you were going to head down that road. Let me know how you like it. Bet you wished you had that red dot now!

Hmm..I'm tempted to get the Costco one because it seems like good value, but this makes me weary. So does the key actually move the mechanical locking mechanism or does it try to override the digital portion by using the key?

If it was just my guns it would he one think, but I'd like to put other documents etc in like passports etc but it's pretty dicey if I can't open it when I need them lol

Oh well, have a look tom.. That place with the used safes only had two new gun safes in stock at $1400, little out of my price range

Didn't they have any used ones in the back? I looked at a few just a month ago - one was a half gun/half document safe. Plus several nice data safes that have 5 hour burn ratings.

I was going to buy one of their data safes when a friend of mine did me a solid and sold me his massive data safe for $500 because he paid that for the old shotgun safe pulled out of the Poco police department.

Called in today and got told they just needed to interview one of my references before proceeding with my application, so I got one of them to call in and now my application is moving along to the next step (which I believe is just waiting for the BC CFO to give final approval)

fuck, seems like costco no longer carries their gun safe.. i swear it was there under a month ago

Hypa, time to upgrade and sell me yours!

drove around today checking out everywhere i could think of/find for gun safes, fuck the selection is super limited.. best selection by far was at the Grandview Canadian tire, but the majority were $800+

If costco still sold theirs, id snap that one up, even with the mixed reviews.. best option seems to be this buck commander bow/gun cabinet, wholesale has it on for $249



the door feels flimsy as fuck but apparently it's decently rated.. hmm

^ that Buck Commander is just a Stack-On with different shelving. Do you need the shelving? If not, just buy a Stack-On 14 gun cabinet when they come on sale at CT. I have two 10 gun cabinets - got them both for $99 on sale at different times. Upright Metal Gun Cabinet, 10-Piece | Canadian Tire

One of the reviews I saw about that Bow/Gun cabinet said it is not tall enough for a shotgun - and I have a few rifles and shotguns that are long in both my safes so it wouldn't work for me.

Even though my cabinets have small shelves in them, I have 5 handguns stacked on them between the two. I use a glove between them and styrofoam on the metal shelf.

If you are buying the Stack-On cabinets, then wait until CT has a sale as they are often on sale for 50% off. They go on sale many times per year.

I don't know if anyone here has a MKIII pistol (not a 22/45), but I am selling a few sets of custom grips if anyone is interested.

Rule #1 of buying anything from CT is never pay full price unless you're in a rush, everything goes on sale eventually and usually for a fair bit off (like when some of their tools hit 75% off). What you can do is go to customer service and ask when the last time an item was on sale and if they'd be willing to honour the sale price, usually if it was within the last few weeks they'll give it to you for the old sale price.

While we are talking about CT pricing, another thing to consider is that many of them are franchise locations and just because on store has a product on sale does not mean that another one will honour that pricing. Often they do, but sometimes they won't based on their limited stock or cost to bring it in.

Woot!
I got my Ruger Charger from Canada Post yesterday. I was worried, having never bought a restricted online. So I took about 4 hrs off work, knowing what time the mail usually arrives.

Of course, the first thing I did was tear it down and see if it really is just a 10/22 receiver in a short stock.

Yes, it is. It also uses AR mags, which is great because so does my T97. Time to kick up the parts collection and doll this thing up. I have a busy next couple of days with work and sports, but I'll try to get out to the range on thursday or friday and snap some pics.

+1 for Grouse River in Kelowna. They were easy to deal with, and helped me through what ended up being a very easy process.

I am very happy with my Ruger Charger. Even though I am still waiting on the regi, and still haven't fired it yet. But the tinkerer in me is pleased.





I also picked up a buffer bolt, extractor, and extended mag release to go with the flash hider and Buckmark optic. Tomorrow night I'll have some time to do file the internals for the bolt release. I'd like to get more involved in the trigger on my 10/22's. They're a ton of fun to shoot.

Looks awesome! I filed my sear to have a lighter trigger on my 10/22. It can be done - just go slow. I already posted youtube vid on doing this mod.

Since I hate waiting on the mail I called the BC CFO today, for some reason their phone line sounds screwed up but I was able to get my PAL number. Sorry to keep spamming the thread but I'm pretty excited.

I'm going to work on my reloading station and the 10/22 triggers this weekend. The kids sports are winding down, which leaves me with a little bit of Steve time.


Sportsman show is this weekend, and we're heading out on Sunday. Is anyone else going?
