Well, the good news, I’ve passed the Restricted Possession Acquisition License Safety Course.

In Canada, before anyone can obtain a handgun, they must obtain an RPAL, but before they can get that, they must pass the safety course for restricted weapons. The pass mark for this course is 80%.

Now, I have to wait for the course report to return to me, before I can send in the application to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. There’s a 28 day mandatory waiting period and they ‘will’ call all your references and call you for an interview. Then if everything goes well, I should have it in a couple of months.

During this time, I have been doing some pre-shopping for a handgun.

I have decided on a 9mm for the fact that the ammunition is cheaper than .40 caliber; and the same for a .22lr handgun as well.

The first I have chosen is a Smith & Wesson M&P22; I choose this as it has had a tonne of good reviews.

and the Smith & Wesson SD9 VE; this gun was based off the Glock by Smith & Wesson. If the S&W Sigma and the M&P got together and had a baby, this would be the result. It takes the great parts of both guns and mixed it into this one. As well, the pricing was the best with a tonne of good reviews.

World’s Suckiest .22LR Ammunition!

Hi Folks,

I got another RANT for ya.

This time it’s about some ammunition that I bought.

Now, to start, I’m shooting this through an ISSC MK22 FN SCAR.

Shooting my ISSC MK22

I’ve only bought two brands of .22LR ammunition for this, as I’ve only had the rifle for about 3 weeks now.

I purchased a box of 500 rounds of Winchester Wildcat22 .22LR
– 40 grain, 1255 FPS

Sorry, no picture, as I never thought I would need to take one.

One small box of 100 rounds of CCI Mini Mag .22LR
– 40 grain, 1235 FPS
