Storing a firearm

Have you stored your firearm properly for the winter?

A firearm must be stored in compliance with the following three conditions:

  • It must be unloaded.
  • It must be equipped with a key or combination-operated locking safety mechanism that prevents the firearm from discharging, or must be made non-operational by taking off the bolt or recoil slide, or be kept in a locked container or room of strong enough construction to avoid being easily forced open. This condition does not apply if the firearm is stored in a remote wilderness area.
  • The firearm must not be kept close to ammunition unless the ammunition is stored with or without the firearm in a container or compartment that is kept locked and is of strong enough construction to avoid being easily forced open. This condition does not apply if the firearm is stored in a remote wilderness area.

Note: A wooded area located on the outskirts of a city or town is not deemed to be a wilderness area.
