Shipping province to province

When shipping airsoft province to province, is there any risk when using airmail ? Or is it better to have it shipped by ground ?

To ship what? There's always risks, that's why there's insurance.

Ground is fast enough.
Take from 1 to 5 days. Depending.

If this is a seizure issue, don't worry.

Otherwise, read this: http://www.canadapost.ca/tools/pg/ma...gnonmail-e.asp

Thank you all for the replies and Im sorry if I was not clear enough. Yes the question was about the possibility of seizure.

I'm having someone send me an HK416 and was wondering if mailing this expresspost airmail was a good idea.

Packages don't go through customs when shipped domestically, even by air (just like you don't go through customs when traveling from province to province).

Use shipping with a tracking number and insurance.

Quick note, always insure the package to it's sale/purchase value, not it's replacement value. Keep the transcripts of the transaction (paypal/emt/dd draft) to prove it.

Read trader ratings! Trust sellers with feedback from some common ASC users.

Dude is unverified so if hes buying from someone here on ASC, somebody is in for an e-raping.

Don't worry, it is not someone from ASC. I should get verified this wednesday and start using the classified like everyone else.

Im not really used to have airsoft (aside from spare parts) ship to me. I usually get them myself by cossing the border like a big boy. Been doing it for the past 5 years now.

However, i recently changed position at work and traveling is no longer as often as I would like.

Since I want to continue my collection, I have to resort to other means

I think he means provincial borders, which aren't really borders at all.
