GTA Guns and Gear Auctions Inc. is the leading gun auction company of all gun auctions in Ontario. GTA provides a wide range of services for both firearms sellers and buyers. Through our straightforward and transparent processes, we make it easy and equitable for our customers to legally purchase or sell guns and related equipment as well as gun appraisals and safe long and short term storage for guns.
We also provide guidance and appraisals for estate lawyers, trustees, executors with guns, and heirs on how to deal with inherited firearms. Note: As of January 1, 2016, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) changed the graduated taxation of testamentary trusts. For widows, heirs, and estate executors who have firearms bequeathed to them, the CRA now requires you to have estate firearms professionally appraised before the will may be probated. GTA Gun Auctions is conveniently located in Ontario to serve the sellers of guns as well as the buyers of guns.
All persons in possession of firearms are subject to Canadian and U.S. laws governing the ownership, transporting, and storing of them. DO NOT move, unlock, give away, or sell firearms in your possession until you fully understand the laws in your jurisdiction. It is the trustee’s or executor’s responsibility to ensure firearms included in a will or estate are stored in a safe and legal fashion.
Are you an executor with guns? GTA Guns and Gear Auctions Inc. can safely transport and store the firearms in your possession while the estate is being settled. In Canada, all firearms owners must have a firearms possession license, and additionally, a registration certificate for any restricted or prohibited firearm.
For estate trustees and executors, you are not legally required to surrender the firearms of an estate to the police. While estate laws may vary by province, the Canadian Firearms Act states an executor generally has the same rights the deceased had to possess firearms even if the executor is not personally licensed to possess a firearm.
