*no offense to any Canada post employees reading this.
Business Firearms Licenses ( BFL ) are only issued if you have a legitimate need to import replicas.. As transfer of replicas to individuals is illegal a BFL won't help you much.
In the last great purging of retailers in the mid late 2000s it was abuses of BFL due to illegal retailing that caused the collapse.
Retailers now.. ( generally, as there are still some border runners ) import unregulated firearms, some then downgrade the guns before retail
