Default 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.......

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

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.

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
