I've never owned a gun in my life, but I'd like to buy some sort of gun just to use at a range, blow off some steam, that sort of thing. Not for self-defense/hunting purposes. Anyways, I was just wondering what the process was like in Canada (specifically Alberta)? Do you need a license? How long does it take to get one? I don't have a criminal record or anything like that. Also, how much money would I be looking at to buy a decent gun? Are there recommendations you guys could make for what to buy and where to buy it (I live in Edmonton)? Keep in mind that I know pretty much nothing about guns or gun laws. Thanks in advance.
