    Would like to know if this is still the proper form to use for Canadians crossing the border with firearms and ammo. Any information would be appreciated.

    Yes, no new form yet, but you don't need the license or letter any longer. See Joe Potosky's Lost Target web site (link above). Bill Malcolm

    Yes it is. No longer must you send in a hunting license or shoot invitation to be approved.

    I just talked to ATF yesterday, and a new form is close to being published, but that can be anywhere from next week to six months from now.

    A shooter from Ontario contacted me last week and he received his approved form (without sending in the license or invitation) back in 48 hours.

    Great info, but wondering:

    Do we still need to fill in the registration numbers?

    Registry is done, I know, but does the ATF still require the info for now?

    Handguns you need to put in the registration number. For long guns put in N/A
