Hope so. Despite having the hammer drop on him, I still can see a few way to damage control the issue, fleeing would escalate the issue way beyond it's current scope.

Then again, I love watching car chases on COPS, so if he does run I hope he makes it entertaining for the rest of us.

importing

I have a friend who tried to smuggle in a gun once. He got caught too. The dumb part was that the gun fell into the unrestricted weapon. So it would have been legal for him to import, he just went cheap. They put him on a list so each time he goes through customs he gets searched. Dumb ass thing to do. I have brought many across declared them all and had proof that they were in the 407 to 499 fps range. It can be a struggle at times I have the law on paper from there web page and show them, no problems at all.
Smuggling is a dumbass thing to do and you deserve to get caught! AS for the Canadian retailers...well everyone is in for the money. Not advancing the sport, just money. So I agree buy legit from the states, almost half the cost!

It's never good when more negative attention is brought towards are sport. You should always know the legislation before bringing somethin controlled across the border. But smuggling is extremely foolish. Even smuggling a non controlled product will land you in jail. It is expensive to bring in guns legally. So a pat on the back to all the retailers who bring in airsoft the right way. And as long as you bring in the high end stuff, I'll keep buying it here.

Anytime anyone breaks a law that involves airsoft, you hurt us all. No one should associate themselves with these people.

Are you saying that you're allowed to buy a gun in the states (over 407 fps), clear or metal or black or wtv, and declare it and it will legally pass no matter what ?

No one is saying that, especially in a non AV section.

Try asking this in this in the restricted area and you will get more useful info.

Wow ..... fkn wow man. I was about to rant on you but I decided my time would be better spent teaching a dog to drive a car than try to correct your frame of mind.

LOOOOOL.. I know a local that buys across the border, claims them legally and now has about 20 AEG's. Go figure to save a small amount of bucks cost you your ass.. Considering the Claimed AEG's at the border range from 10-50$ per lol.

If you read this as total BS make sure you know a person who has actually bought across the border and claimed the AEG.. I know a person and seen the paperwork to prove it.

I've brought guns in from HK, it's just a matter of knowing what to do, as spoken. BEWARE if you're going to do it by mail. Prohibited Importations Unit in Mississauga has no efficient means of testing modified guns at this time, AEG or otherwise. It will sit there until they do. I have been talking to them alot recently, turns out i have to either wait to have my gun tested (6 months or so)... it's a FinCode budget thing with CBSA, or ship it back to HK for refund (which most sites don't do) so needless to day i'm not getting my G&P SR25 any time soon.

just giving a heads up.

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.
