It is not often that I read an article of this calibre (if you will pardon the pun) printed in the paper.
I felt it was worth re-posting here.

The shell latch would fail which would cause a double feed in the shotgun essentially jamming the action open and rendering fire firearm inoperable. He explained to me that this was happening on a regular basis and that he would have to use his knife or a stick to pry the round out.
I showed him a simple stoppage clearance drill that we commonly teach on our shotgun courses.

I have been fortunate enough to have firearms experts safely instruct and mentor me from a very early age. Including the same firearms training as the police before I reached my teens, and soon after held certifications from Smith and Wesson, Glock, Remington, Beretta, and the Canadian government to name a few. I have been fortunate to be exposed to the professional side of firearms ownership, and that expertise has shaped my perspective of firearms ownership in Canada. I want to give back to the community by dispelling some of the firearm myths as well as answer the questions I hear most frequently. Some points of interest that have been raised are:
