OH NO! My Money! "Importing from the US to Canada

I JUST read something that I can't import an airsoft gun? This is BAD. I just ordered an AEP Desert Eagle from Redwolf Airsoft. So this means I won't get it AND I lose all my money?

Send red wolf an email and ask them to cancel your order. If its already shipped, when it gets to the boarder and you receive your letter from the CBSA, you should have the option to return the item to the sender.

Should have looked into first dude. I've had friends ask me if they're allowed to import even just knives, I can't imagine why you wouldn't have looked into importing a Replica Firearm. :\

Hopefully you don't lose your money in this though!

Not neccesarily man, you might get the option to return it (in which case you get some money back), or you might be incredibly lucky and the item might slide through customs, but don't count on that happening. Honestly, I'm amazed that RedWolf didn't mention anything to you about ordering a gun in Canada.

You joined on the 19th, but didn't look it up before now?

You ordered with your Christmas money; Xmas is today. When did you order? Cancel your order.

Either way I smell shenanigans.

its an automated system the website.
but on their website they do outline you cannot import any gun into canada.

Then that's the buyer beware warning clause. It's up to the buyers to spot that, they don't have to say sh!t after that.

So yea, since it's Xmas money (and only just Xmas), do as Drake said, cancel your order. Retract it, E-mail them, cancel payment, whatever, just cancel it.

You cancel your order by emailing them with your order number and ask them to cancel it.

You WILL get your money back, it will be credited to your credit card, yes this will work even though its pre paid. Did for me anyways.

Their site is down, the error you described is not a "blocking" error. They have no reason to block you anyways...

You already have their email according to your previous post.

EDIT:

google is your friend.
