PAL Requirements

Firearms and ammunition purchases by law require the appropriate firearms license. We will require your PAL information for these products. You can enter this information during checkout and we will keep it on record until it expires. Your date of birth is required. Restricted purchases also require the gun club or range name you are a member of and your city/town of birth.


May 18th, 2022 * Notice *

As of May 18th, 2022, the Federal government now requires every firearm license (PAL) to be verified for all non-restricted firearm sales. To complete a sale for a non-restricted firearm, the following pieces of information are required:

  1. Your email address the RCMP has on file. If you are unsure of the email on file or don't have one on file, please visit the RCMP website.
  2. Your date of birth (DOB).
  3. A picture of the front and back of your PAL.
  4. A picture of the front and back of a government issued photo ID.

You can submit this information through our online links on firearm product pages, on the "my cart" page or through email to [email protected].


What is a PAL?

Possession and Acquisition License (PAL) is a firearms license that shows the license holder can possess and use firearms. It is required in order to own non-restricted and restricted firearms in Canada. 


How do I apply for a PAL?

First you need to complete the Canadian Firearms Safety Course. More information can be found on the RCMP website here

How old do I have to be to apply for a PAL?

The applicant must be at least 18 years old.


I have my PAL. Can I purchase ammunition and/or a firearm and get it shipped to a different address?

No. As per our policies, we will ONLY ship to the address that is on file with the RCMP. 


Why do you only ship to the address on file with the RCMP?

Because you are not physically present with your PAL while ordering. 


I want to purchase ammunition, but I only have a PO box. What should I do?

We will only ship ammo through Purolator and will be unable to complete the request. You will be notified and your order will be refunded. 


How do you ship firearms?

We only ship firearms through Canada Post. 


How do I update my address with the RCMP?

You can update your information, renew your license, check your application status, and register firearms online through the RCMP's website


I don't have a PAL, I live in the United States. Can I still place an order? 

We do not ship to the United States.
