Well, I'm the OP, so you don't need to speculate. I can tell you exactly why I asked:
There are a lot of people saying this and that about how customs will seize your airsoft if you try to bring it in even when declared up front and in person, but seemingly
precious few who have actually experienced it. I was wondering why that is. Is it mainly fearmongering? You'd think people who got their stuff seized would love to share their misery and tell their 'war stories' so to speak, but so far that doesn't seem to be the case. Maybe bringing across in person isn't that bad after all. I don't know, and none of the threads really cover this in detail, hence the question.
Also, please note I asked about times when people got their stuff seized.. ie, those would be times when the agent DID do his/her job properly.
Man, there's a lot of paranoia here.. should I assume that all the heavy lifting you're doing trying to re-interpret my post and keeping everyone else from answering is because you're a Canadian dealer who wants to keep his fat markup going for as long as possible? Sheesh, give me a break, guys.
