So, in Canada we have this thing called the PAL (posession and aquisition license) and you can't own (therefor shoot) a firearm. I took my written test (98% right) and i've been waiting like a month to take my practical test. They ask you to PROVE, identify (pick up) two of 6 possible action types, load and unload each, identify types of ammunition and take one of three stances (standing, sitting or prone). I choked the first time (i don't test well) so I drilled procedures with my dad who owns just about any tpe of legal firearm you can think of. You have to do the same test again with handguns if you want to get your restricted firearms PAL. What are the laws that you all have where you are and what were the problems you faced getting licensed?
