Well, there really is the gray area. Technically if a gun meets the Canadian airgun legal standards; then it's legal to import. Also technically the CBSA doesn't have to allow it in anyways. Even bringing one across that isn't legal will just get it taken from you. Smuggling is the big picture, if you smuggle anything you'll probably go to jail. It doesn't matter if your smuggling toilet paper. smuggling itself is a felony, not trying to cross the border with something that may be slightly illegal.

That being said, I still wouldn't cross with an airsoft gun, unless it was parts with "no receiver", or clear and not a replica. I've heard of people doing this successfully, but more than that I hear of people losing the guns and money. Not to mention if you do try to cross and you even declare them; you'll still probably wind up on "the list". I'd suggest avoiding this. Everytime someone has an incident involving airsoft guns it affects the whole community. The general public doesn't know exactly what it is we do. So bad news scares them, and that makes things harder for us all around.

As far a supporting Canadian retailers goes. I will buy from anyplace that has the best gear, reasonable prices, and a good set up. If they have that I'll buy from the goddamn moon if I have to. Some Canadian retailers are very good. And I buy from them as much as I can. As well as some importers. But many are not. Overly high prices, lowend airsoft, and badly stocked. Too many try to tell you that what they are carrying is the best, and charge to much for it. This I'm sure has caused people to try and ship guns, or bring guns into the country. To all the retailers that bring in top quality guns, and dont chew our arm off to get them. Thanks.

Why? I've brought Realswords across the border, IN PERSON, for someone I know, he's AVed on here but, like myself, thinks the prices retailers are asking is still bullshit, considering I can legally bring it in myself. The laws are clear, if you meet certain criteria, you can bring certain items in. Simple as that.

P.S. Don't bother PMing me for info on it, the info can be found with a little work, do something for yourselves for once. Also, If you PM me and are not age verified, I'm going to tell you to go fuck yourself.

doing your homework

i legally brought an AEG, ordered and shipped to a us address back into canada the key is to have all the paperwork showing it shoots between 366 and 500 fps i also had a copy of the cbsa memo showing the changes to the fps regs just in case there was an issue, got pulled in they confirmed it was an uncontrolled firearm that could only fire 6mm bb's i went paid my duty and was on my way. I cross the border biweekly since and havent had any issues but lying is just stupid and a good way to get screwed in the long run.
