If you are looking for a way to save money on shotguns and live in Canada then you should follow this outline. Prior to looking at firearms for sale in Canada, you need to make sure your firearm safety and firearm acquisition permits are up to date otherwise you could experience hassles when it comes time to make the purchase.
New vs Old Shotguns
While some of you may be tempted to purchase a 2nd hand shotgun to save some money, you can provided it is from a trusted person and the gun is in good condition but for the majority of us, it would be wiser to buy new. With a new shotgun, you have peace of mind knowing the barrel is not going to crack open while you are trying to shoot the gun or experience any other type of malfunction.
When shopping for a new shotgun you need to find a retailer that has been in the industry for a really long time. You want to have a strong relationship with your gun retailer so you can have your gun serviced by them on a regular basis and get your ammo from them too. Identify the gun retailers that have been doing this for the greatest amount of time and then check out the prices they are charging for the specific type of shotgun you are interested in buying.
Since each of the retailers is free to charge whatever they want for the shotgun you need to find out whether the listed price includes any perks like a carrying case or free ammo. Prior to making the decision to buy you should confirm the new gun comes with a warranty so if there are any defects you can exchange it for another gun, just get the warranty in writing so you have peace of mind.
