IBM BUYBACK

Estimated reading time: 2 minutes

IBM BUYBACK PHASE 1

The Trudeau government has awarded a contract to IBM Canada to support the development, design and implementation of a buyback program for recently prohibited firearms.

The contract is worth almost $1.2 million, according to an award notice posted on a federal information portal.

$1.2 Million is no where close to what it is going to cost to confiscate law abiding firearms owners property!

Charles Zach lobbyist for Canada’s National Firearms Association tried reaching out numerous to IBM for comment but was unsuccessful. In his twitter post he stated IBM Canada President Claude Guay refuses to speak with him. Zach, a strong advocate for the firearms community is determined to get the bottom of this. He will continue to reach out to IBM Canada in hopes of finding answers about why a computer software company has any business working with a government to setup a program to confiscate firearms from legal owners.

TILLSONBURG GUN SHOP

Estimated reading time: 3 minutes

Tillsonburg Gun Shop is a full service shop that buys, sells and trades new and used firearms. They have a large variety of shooting accessories, optics, firearms accessories, reloading supplies, ammunition, hunting supplies and range items that would make the average firearms enthusiast feel like a kid in a candy store. Tillsonburg Gun Shop also offers gun smithing.

Located at 107a Concession St E, Tillsonburg you can find the store in a little strip mall. Don’t judge a book by its cover, from the front it looks like a small store in a small town but once you walk in the doors you are blown away by all the product they have on display.

September of 2020 Well attending an NFA event at the Otter Valley Gun Club. Presenting the “Big Freakin Gun” contest winner the prize with my colleague Rick Igercich. I got the chance to do some shopping at Tillsonburg Gun Shop.

All the staff at Tillsonburg Gun Shop are very knowledgeable. Back in September 2020 when visiting the small town gun shop myself and my colleague Rick Igercich were able to interview one of the staff members Paul Johnston, when asked how gun sales were doing since the May 1St OIC gun ban from the Trudeau government Paul stated,

Gun sales have not been effected but there was an increase in shotgun sales.

Paul went on to say because of the OIC and the current COVID-19 pandemic going on around the world target shooters and hunters were stocking up more on ammunition. Some hunters are buying for the current hunting season and some customers are buying for current year and next season. At that time there was uncertainty of whether ammunition supplies would be effected with factory slow downs and shipping companies get backed up with the increased business from online sales.

Ontario Stay At Home Order

Moving forward four months later due to restrictions placed in the province of Ontario the store front is closed to people shopping inside but that has not effected their online sales and curb side picks. Ontario Director Rick Igercich drove by and stated there was a line up at the door and around the corner with customers waiting to pick up their online and call in orders.

Back in September I could not decide on the Browning 725 Citori to purchase but after shooting a few different models at the Hamilton Gun Club you will find me standing inline waiting for curb side pick up.
