Where to Buy Guns Online in Canada

If you’re new to firearms, the fact that you can order them online might be new to you. Nevertheless, it is legal and convenient. You can often get great prices and have a new rifle shipped to your home in a week. In general, only the biggest stores can have both low prices and decent availability. Availability at times can be spotty. Here are some of the online stores I’ve used and what I’ve used them for. Interested in used guns? Check out my “Where to buy used guns in Canada” post.

Cabela’s – The website is a bit heavy, but it’s fully featured and easy to use. Cabela’s usually has great prices, but check a few other sources because sometimes they’re a bit higher. Generally excellent availability and great for hunting rifles.

The Shooting Centre – Good selection of tactical gear including competition pistols, tactical rifles, LOTS of selection on pistols.

Wolverine Supplies – Mainly tactical focus. Great website, prices are a bit higher than average, but they’ve also got a lot of products that no one else has. Excellent customer service.

CanadaAmmo – Fairly new, but with a modern website, good customer service, and unique product offering, they’re worth a look. They’ve got an email mailing list that I’d encourage you to sign up to.

Frontier Firearms – General inventory is OK, but what really sets Frontier apart are their screaming deals that pop up every once in a while.

SFRC – SFRC has some great deals that come up every now and again. Pretty solid for tactical supplies as well.

CanadianGunNutz.com – The Equipment Exchange on CanadianGunNutz is a great place to buy and sell all sorts of stuff. It’s also easily the largest Canadian firearms forum, so you should be a member anyways.

Lever Arms – More tactical than hunting, but sometimes there’s crossover. Prices vary, with some being a bit more than average, where others are quite a bit lower.

Trade Ex Canada – Almost all used or surplus firearms and mostly European. If you want to hunt with a Mosin Nagant, SVT-40, a straight-pull Swiss K31, a Mauser, or a classy Husqvarna, they’re the guys to talk to. Very friendly guys, and they have an incredible amount of stock. A fantastic source if you’d like an inexpensive over under or side by side shotgun. I’ve always thought that a Husqvarna in 9.3×57 would be a great little inexpensive moose rifle. A little hard to get ammo for though 😉 They come across some very interesting handgun deals every once in a while too.

Ellwood Epps – Very good stock availability and generally decent prices.

P & D Enterprises – local to me, P & D has an OK selection of firearms, but excellent inventory of everything else. My favourite place for reloading components, and all sorts of other stuff.

Sail – I haven’t bought anything from SAIL, but my Quebec and Ontario readers are big fans.


Higginson Powders has everything you need for reloading and generally has it for the lowest price. Not much for a website, but easy enough if you’re looking for LEE, Hodgdon, or Bushnell products.

Mystic Precision has a few mostly unique product lines. Jerry is definitely the guy to talk to if you want ultra high accuracy or long range.


They’re not from Canada, but orders from this Brownell’s link help us pay for bandwidth. So if you were going to buy something from them anyways, use our link and help us pay for faster website hosting!

    As a fellow local I noticed you left out Milarm. Their milsup collection is not as great as it once was and the prices tend to be higher than other Dealers, making local purchases frustrating. They do have a great staff and bargains can sometimes be found. Not local, but surely SFRC deserves a spot with the big boys.

  • rick

    also, the equipment exchange on Canadian gunnutz is a great place for firearms deals, just be careful of who you buy from. Reading the feedback on potential buyers is very helpful. many of the big dealers post there as well.

  • Good call on CanadianGunNutz and SFRC. Added!

  • Adrian

    Another one to add to the list: https://fishingworld.ca/ One of our clients and a good bunch of people. Physical store is located in Hamilton.

  • Will do. Are you their web guys? They’ve got a 2.2MB and a 1MB file on the background slowing things down a bit.

  • Ken

    SFRC is a great store for firearms, ammo & accessories. I have dealt with them extensively & will continue to do so.Good $s & fast delivery. Cheers.

  • Julien

    You can add sail.ca to the list

  • Dave Brabant

    do i just order the gun or will they do license checks and all that?

  • They’ll need a PAL #.

  • Done!

  • Massive


    Has a good comprehensive list, though lots of dead links last time I scoured it.

    Wanstals is really good

    Gagnon not huge, but prices are good, you can sometimes get a discount, and have annual tax free sale (just over)


  • Massive

    Accuracy Plus in Peterborough, good prices at times, large inventory of second hand and new.

  • Massive

    Basspro should be good, but their website is the worst in Canada.

  • cody

    firarms canada is run by child like bullies, i enquired politley about why they would post a scam warning under my add that stated it had nothing too do with my add, and the reply i got was a lesson on spelling mistakes and very child like bully tactics. when i pasted theyr rude emails publicly on their site they banned me. thats the charecter of the admins of that site, i would stay away.

  • Myles

    Budgetshootersupply has been great to me

  • Mark G.

    LeBaron is good too.



  • Coleslaw81

    You said that P&D was local for you (and I agreed with your review of them) so I’m interested as to why you didn’t include MilArm? They have decent selection while their service can be… rough (“buy it or don’t, I don’t care”) but once or twice a year they have huge sales.

  • Mike

    ArmsTrader.ca is good for used guns.

  • Jamie

    Another new one but decent is http://www.bigredsfirearms.com

  • Adriel – I’m not sure if you are still updating this list but if so see what you think of the firearms page on TownPost: http://www.townpost.ca/sports/guns/canada

    Hey guys

    Wondering how you fare with Trigger Wholesale Inc.

    Do you have any problems getting product from them

    Do they tend to screw up, not send things, forget parts of the order, seemingly outright lie ??

    Or do they tend to be on time, orders complete and as described??

    How about Mark Gdak, do you find he’s a man of his word or something closer to a Conman ?

    Just wondering as I have been trying to deal with them, not to skew your reply I’ll not get into mine

    Please reply asap
