If you have unwanted firearms there are legal alternatives to turning in your guns to the authorities for destruction.
What can I do with my unwanted guns? Should you find yourself in a position where you are looking at ridding yourself of firearms, there are legal alternatives to turning them in to the lawful authorities for destruction. Our company is happy to accept your unwanted firearms and will arrange for either the shipping or the pick up of your firearm from you.
What do we do with your unwanted firearms? Here at Arcane Defense, firearm safety is our number one priority and so we offer firearm safety courses which require the use of disabled/deactivated firearms for the purpose of providing practical safety training. As a result of the volume of safety training courses we offer, we find ourselves replacing our firearms on a consistent basis. Your firearms would be repurposed as training aids, after having been disabled or deactivated. Our company also partners with local gun clubs to donate unwanted firearms for safety training purposes. Should your firearm have a historical importance, we will determine the significance of the said firearm and may have it donated to the appropriate cultural or social organisation (for instance museums, historical societies, law enforcement/military historical organisations) for proper historical usage or to add to historical collections.
What firearms do you accept? Currently we are accepting all firearms that are classified as being non-restricted or restricted. Non-restricted firearms can be sent or picked up with very little delay. However, restricted firearms require proper transfer documentation and coordination through the Canadian Firearms Program and where required the provincial Chief Firearm officer. Prohibited firearms are also accepted, however the process may take a little more time as it is dependant on the category under which type of prohibited firearm falls. In some cases, a deactivation or modification of the said firearm may be required to change its classification. What if I have firearms but I do not or no longer have a Possession and acquisition license? If you do not have a valid firearms licence, you are committing criminal offense(s) if you possess firearms (unless you are holding firearms as the executor of an estate). It is not legal to just give your restricted firearms away, a transfer of registration is required under the Canadian Firearms Program.
