Default PARADOX gun classification

So in the U.S. of A, handguns are not so bad but a shortened down rifle is a dangerous weapon. So when the Rossi M92 Ranch Hand comes along the U.S. classifies it as a handgun so it is easy to purchase, possess and carry.

In Canada handguns are just evil and if a "long gun" is manufactured not quite so long thats ok. So the Ranch Hand in Canada is not a restricted "handgun" but a not so long, long gun. (even though when you buy one in Canada it comes in a box that says "this is a handgun" right on the box.)

Just goes to show that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Now I don't know about other Canadian Provinces but Alberta has a regulation that says you cannot use a "revolver or pistol" for hunting (an exemption is made for pellet pistols)
But Alberta law does not define "revolvers or pistols".

So If I want to hunt with my new Ranch Hand I have to find out if Alberta agrees with U.S.A. of Canada or have their own views as to what the heck a Ranch Hand really is.
