In Canada you need a gun licence to own firearms. To actually carry one you need to qualify annually with your company and they apply for your ATC (authorization to carry) I requalified in August and reminded my manager in September. He forgot to apply for my ATC. Nothing I could do to prevent this.

So you were expecting your gun to lift the coins??

Been working with a firearm for years. It's your responsibility to keep your cards up to date, not his. Do feel for you, that coin is heavy after moving just a few boxes...

#5 - In almost every state you have to go to the range annually and requalify with your weapon. I've had to do it for the past 3 years for my armed security license. For a Concealed Carry permit, you don't.

Even if your company is paying for your license, it is your responsibility to keep track of renewals. Florida sends you a reminder notice 4 months before it expires, giving you roughly 8-10 weeks to send everything in (6-8 week processing period).

5- Maybe the Canadian gun laws are different from what I am used to. We have to requal every 6 months and renew every 2 years. My main point being nobody is responsible for doing any of that for him.

#9 - myself and OP are from Canada. I have my restricted and non-restricted firearms license and we don't need to go to a range for it. The gun laws here vary significantly from the states. We can't have concealed, even if you're a peace officer.

#16- Sucks you can't have CCW's. It's pretty tough Trying to get one here. Security officers here have to do as I stated above. The police officers here don't have to requal so often. Once a year.

If something was that important to me I wouldnt leave it to someone else. Until you had the paper in your hand you should have been reminding him.

Pa, act 235 is armed guard. Classes 16 hours instructional and 8 range, followed by test. Renewed every 5 years, course of fire only (course of fire is easy enough you could do it one handed with a snub nose). CCW is a 20 (maybe 25 now) fee and a application. Each state varies widely, and Canada I have no clue. Still you're job, keep track....

Let's set the record straight... In Canada only police officers, armored car guards and those working in the far north can have a permit to carry. For armored car guards, the employer must submit the forms, because they are the only reason that person is getting the permit, otherwise anyone could say they work as a guard and get a permit without actually being a guard...
