This ought to be fun, calling CFC today
 
I expect that today might set a call volume record for the CFC due to transfers initiated over the weekend.

ANNNND after the voice recording saying to wait while I was in cue started getting sounding like digital scrambled eggs it just hung up on me after being in cue for 9 minutes. This is going to be fun....... :thinking-006::angry3:

I phoned about 10 days ago was on hold for 15 Mins. I was surprised it only took 7 days for a transfer to Ont.
Bill Blair's big gun blowout has slowed things down a bit.

I got through, spoke with an agent. She then transferred me to the provincial CFO. I was on hold for that and then the system hung up on my a second time :rolleye2:

I “hate” electronic call management! Given the choice, I would jump at the opportunity to pay an additional $5.00 in tax so we could afford more staff.

I purchased a handgun from a company in Ontario two weeks ago. I provided them the details of my range membership, and they took care of contacting the Alberta CFO, and getting the registration approved. I received my handgun, and a letter from the CFC, stating that my registration papers were on the way, six days later.

Transfered 2 on Thursday last week and got the email at 3pm today saying approved. Quickest I've ever had

Funny I called them twice today and was on hold for no longer than 5 minutes each time.

Or they could do away with the restricted classification for the firearms that look scary , and they wouldn't need the staff that they have. Those scary AR rifles have never been involved in a shooting spree in Canada, even when they weren't restricted, and there were no magazine limits.

I phoned today to complete a transfer

New question?
What is your intended purpose
what is the name of your pistol club
How long have you been a member

It's been awhile but I don't remember the club question and how long I've been a member I think that's new

Had another transfer started on Friday completed a hour ago. But I was in cabelas today buying some ammo and over heard the gun counter guys talking about recording all non restricted sales info they said as if the govt is preparing for a long gun registry again. (I have pretty good hearing)

Same guys that were talking about the ban announcement?

CaberTosser 06-10-2019 07:33 PM

Well they're still sending the paperwork out on restricteds. My wife texted me this today when I was at work : "Your paperwork for your WMD has arrived ;)"

I ordered an older wheel gun outta Epps last month, Epps couldn’t find the transfer confirmation email, even though the CFC told me they sent it, a couple days later I received the confirmation in the mail, sent an emailed picture of the transfer document, and the wheel gun was in the mail the next day. A day later my registration arrived

I just ordered a restricted black gun (June 5th)from Prophet River, 24 hours later there was a shipping notice, and today the rifle arrived.

No idea just 2 old birds behind the counter that just finished selling some guy a sks . Heard them after he left

Could be up to who you get on the other end . . .

And I agree with the "recording info on non-restricteds" too - I've seen that at more than one place so far. It is conspicuous in that there is definitely no legal requirement, but the stores may be trying to do a CYA just in case something happens.
