Check out the handgun law in Canada


There are three legal classes of firearms in Canada. Here are the general rules:

Prohibited: Handguns with a barrel length of 105 millimetres (4.2 inches) or less, or that discharge .25 or .32 calibre ammunition; rifles or shotguns that have been altered so their barrel length is less than 457 mm (18.3 inches) or their overall length is less than 660 mm (26.4 inches); automatic weapons and short semi-automatics.

Restricted: Handguns with barrel lengths longer and calibres larger than prohibited ones; and some semi-automatics.

Non-restricted: Ordinary hunting and sporting rifles, shotguns and airguns.

Sounds simpler than CA, although I'd guess some of the details of prohibited semi rifles could be complicated.

the kicker is that most of the Para Ordanance pistols are not legal there. go figure.

You can have a 14" shotgun in Canada though. They have 5 round restrictions vs. 10 rd for rifles. It is almost debateable if ca is worse than CA.
