My thoughts on the Canadian (Restricted) Firearms Safety Course
I recently completed the education course required to apply for a Possession and Acquisition Licence (PAL) from the RCMP. Non-restricted and restricted firearms are handled separately here in Canada, and you must complete a second course to apply for your Restricted or RPAL. If offered to you, it is well worth doing your CRFSC – restricted firearms safety course – at the same time as your CFSC.
The course that I attended took place over three evenings after work. Each session was four hours long. This method I highly recommend, since four hours is not too long or too much material for one sitting. I took my course through Silvercore Advanced Training Systems and I highly recommend checking them out if you are in Vancouver, the lower mainland BC, or Vancouver Island.
