Are there any other Atheist or Anti-Theist (like me) Canadian Gun Owners?

I think you must mean "religious credulity". Consider

I'm a Canadian gun owner but I live in the U.S.
The sportsman's club I belong to is heavily conservative, but we don't actually talk politics or religion. No
I have, however, worn my atheism pin on my hat before. When asked what the A stood for, I said "atheism". I got a surprised look and no further comment.

I'm a Canadian, but just a regular one not a Gun Owning Canadian. I've just got a .22 and a 12 gauge.

So many cats, so few good recipes.

Those aren't kitchen utensils.

They're guns...

Nah. Guns are for shooting people. These are just farm tools....aren't they? Consider

RE: Canadian Gun Owners?
I've got an SKS and an AK, but they are both Yugos. The first time I pulled the trigger on the AK it went bang, but the hammer followed the bolt forward so it wouldn't shoot again without manually cycling the action. A new Tapco trigger took care of the issue, but so much for that legendary AK reliability. I traded a used scope I originally paid $25 for to get the SKS. That was before Obama though. The last time I looked at one at a gun shop they were asking more than $300 for them. I can remember pallets of them at Larry's for $37 each in the 90s.

RE: Canadian Gun Owners?
I am one of probably 100 million Americans who own guns and I have roughly 100 guns. I started working for a custom rifle builder when I was 16 and I'm almost 70 years old now. Consequently, I've been building my own rifles for 54 years. I build bolt action hunting rifles and a lot of them are wildcat cartridges. I have no interest in military rifles of any kind and I expect any rifle that I build to shoot sub MOA [minute of an angle]. Many of them shoot 1/2 or 1/4 MOA. [A minute of an angle is 1.06" at 100 yards.] I also love big African dangerous game rifles and I've built several .458 WMs and .416 RMs.

I used to have over 120 guns - till I got rid of all the duplicates - (who needs 5 SKS's???)

I too kept only the rifles that will shoot MOA or better...... (exempting 22lr)

No point in having something that makes every shot a "hail mary"....

I currently don't have anything bigger than -06..(well, 12 gauge) ( There's just nothing around here big enough to need anything bigger.......

As far as "military" rifles -- there are some really good ones.....

Ever shot a Swiss 7.5 straight pull???

Except for the short stock -- it's a hell of a shooter.... Love mine - just hard to find new brass for it....

I've shot the Swiss 7.5. Norma makes brass for it.

I have several duplicates -- e.g., 3 - .338 Win Mags, 2- .458 Win Mags, 4- 7mm Rem Mags., and 3- .270 Wins. They are each sighted in for different weight bullets.
