I have a copy of small arms of the world that lists G 3s as being confiscated from FLQ members back during the "unpleasantness" of the 1970s. I don't recall the quantity but I remember being surprised it was so many. Maybe some older members of the board were there and can tell us.

What was the CF calling the Garand when training on it?

If I remember right, Rifle, .30, M1 or .30, US M1.

Cheers,

Wes

Don't be so surprised -- Canadian Gun Laws up until Jan 1 1979 allow for civilians to purchase select fire firearms in the same manner as handguns.  And up until 1994 automatic weapons that had been coverted to semi only where allowed to be bought by anyone.
Back when we had freedom...
