Officially you cannot fire your restricted firearms in any place other than an approved range, as you are required to have an ATT (Authorisation To Transport) to transport your restricted firearms. The ATT restricts not only the places you can take your restricted firearm but also the route by which it can be transported. The ATT allows you to transport your restricted firearms from your house to a range, gunsmith, and border crossing by any reasonable route.
It is important to note that an individual wishing to acquire an ATT must now be a member of a gun club or range before he can be issued an ATT. For details on ATT applications or inexpensive gun club memberships visit www.silvercore.ca or http://www.firearms-safety-course.com .
As the law stands you cannot take restricted firearms in the bush as your ATT dos not provide you with this option. For individuals employed in remote wilderness locations there is special license available I will dedicate a post to that in the near future.
