Canada firearm regulations

The above is a misleading statement. The facts are;
Firearm Users Visiting Canada

The Canada Border Services Agency is responsible for controlling items brought into Canada. However, here is some basic information if you wish to bring a firearm or other item regulated by the Firearms Act into Canada.
The Firearms Act is a federal law and applies all across the country. Provinces may have additional requirements, especially with respect to hunting.
You must be at least 18 years old to bring a firearm into Canada. If you are younger than 18, you may use a firearm in certain circumstances, but an adult must remain responsible for the firearm.
If you have been convicted of anything considered a criminal offence in Canada, including driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, you will need to get approval of rehabilitation or a temporary immigration permit from Canada’s Minister of Citizenship and Immigration before you can enter Canada. Contact the nearest Canadian embassy or consulate for more information.
Classes of Firearms and Devices

There are three classes of firearms in Canada:
  • Non-restricted (most common rifles and shotguns): These may generally be imported for purposes such as hunting, protection from wild animals in remote wilderness areas where firearms are allowed, or target-shooting. They may also be taken in transit through Canada by a reasonably direct route.
  • Restricted: These are allowed for certain purposes, such as target shooting at an approved club or range, but they are not allowed for hunting or self-protection.
  • Prohibited: You cannot bring a prohibited firearm into Canada.
Some firearms are classified as restricted or prohibited under the Criminal Code based on their general characteristics (e.g. barrel length or calibre); other restricted and prohibited firearms are specified by name in Criminal Code Regulations.
Some large-capacity magazines are prohibited even if the firearms to which the magazines are attached are allowed. As a general rule, the maximum capacity is:
  • five cartridges for most magazines designed for a centre fire semi-automatic long gun; and
  • ten cartridges for most handgun magazines.
There is no maximum magazine capacity for other types of long guns, including semi-automatics that discharge only rim-fire ammunition.

Exclamation Tubeless Tire Kit!

OK, I have scanned through all of these post and didn't see the one thing that I always have in the tow vehichle. And that is a tubeless tire plug kit. A lot of times you can fix that rascal without ever having to remove the wheel if you catch it in time. Of course you will need a 12 volt compressor which should already be on aboard. The plugs they have out these days can be permanent fixs in most cases but will at least get you somewhere for a patch or replacement. This kit has saved me many times. That is from having to go through full tire and wheel change.

That's what I used to do too, but being alongside the road a LONG way from WalMart and needing a four-way or being in a campground in the rain and needing an electrical adapter made a believer out of me. Now I TRY to "Be Prepared."

Something I didnt think of till this last trip, is a couple of rolls of quarters for the laundry.

Also a 4 pack of those Starbuck's Doubleshot Espressos in a can. Very handy when you have to stop over in a parking lot and dont want to take time in the morning to make/buy a proper cup of coffee before starting off.

I wish I shelled out the $40 for a weather radio, I decided to get cute and sign up for severe weather alerts on Verizon for the areas on my route.
But they come in as a picture allert, and the pictures do not download if you are out of network (which was most of my route through north-west Texas)
So I just got notifications that I had pending downloads, which only told me that something bad was happening somewhere....
