Normal magazines that are obviously designed for airsoft-only use, are not going to be an issue. Those that display fake bullets fall under the grey area of "replica" classification here. We can get them here, but trying to get them over as private citizens is a huge risk if you'd like to avoid a border hassle/red flagging for future border interaction in the CBSA computer system.
Not sure how to ship personal property without a hassle -- you might need to do some further research on those.
I definitely will do the research, I have come to the reasoning after the few years I have lived that researching is your best friend in the starting of doing something thus I am asking all these "noob" questions. Definitely don't want that NVG going to any terrorist. Might be used in some illicit event and I might get pinned for it.
I'm looking up how I can cheaply send my things over, I was thinking using USPS since my dad's company still has a contract with them in international shipping! Lucky me.
