Default Where can one buy now?

Seems like BassPro etc. are closed. Any idea where somebody can still go shopping for a rifle? I know it's not great timing but now that I have more time...

I think you can do online/phone orders and do curbside pick up at other places

Never thought I'd be buying guns from Canadian tire.

I walk through the gun aisle at the local Canadian Tire , when I feel like some comedy, the prices are way out of line, even higher than Cabelas regular prices.

There are two locations in Calgary that are pretty good, sizable too.

I agree and the guns in your local Canadian Tire are all different types of expensive vanilla ice cream. Mostly over priced low end stuff. And to top it off itís usually fenced off so you canít go down that aisle.

Not aware of any gun shops in Calgary being closed, yet, I can see where with Basspro attached to the mall, they would have had to. Cabela's restricts numbers in the store, that's about all any of them need to do, indoor ranges are closed, but, stores are open. I do wonder at the cost & procedure of decontaminating a store like Basspro would entail though. Would seem to be practical to close it even were it a stand alone store.

Was in the Southland CT location today. They are open.
Did not look close at the counter but it was open for sure, not sure of selection.
