    Just curious---are our Canadian cousins dealing with the same ammo shortages and panic buying/hoarding/scalping that we are here in the states? And is it legal for Americans to purchase ammo in Canada or is some sort of permit required?

    I don't know if they're scalping/hoarding ammo but you need a PAL (possession and acquisition license) or POL (possession only license) to legally obtain firearms and ammunition in Canada.

    Good question. I keep getting emails from the "canadian pharmacy" for viagra. Wonder if they can combine shipments.

    This came up on another forum a couple months ago and they're not having any shortages at all. Pics were posted of pallets of imported ammo and though
    I can't remember any particulars those prices (low) haven't been seen here in years. Plus they don't have the import restrictions that we have so theres all that Norinco
    and other goodness that we'll likely never see again.

    They probably don't have near the numbers of 'casual' shooters as we have either.
