I created TheGunBlog.ca (Twitter: @TheGunBlog) in January 2015 to promote the safe, respectful, responsible, informed and skilled use of firearms in Canada.

TheGunBlog.ca aims to be a hub for information, facts, data, news, analysis and opinion for anyone and everyone wanting to learn about guns in Canada. It seeks to be thoughtful, fair, balanced and fun. [Update: Sometimes with large doses of snark.]

Whether you love guns or hate them or are in between, whether you are a novice or expert with firearms, whether you want to learn about guns for collecting, hunting, competing, relaxing, training, writing, photographing, defence, war, work, fun, as a hobby or lifestyle, or anything else, TheGunBlog.ca aims to serve you.

If you like this blog, please share it with people who might enjoy it.

Thank you for visiting.
