quick nub question

Forgive me I should know this but... my brain is done from the training out here and I can't seem to find what I need via search.

I am in AB right now and flying back home for my days off. I bought a new airsoft gun out this way with a fake ammo belt. I am having a feeling that can not even be checked. Am I right to say this. ... thinking I should just mail it but even sure if CP will care about that.

edit* back home is kelowna

You can mail them, no problem there.

I would not try to take it on a plane.

Actually it's not allowed according to Canada Post:

Quote:
Replica or inert munitions are non-mailable, as well as other devices that simulate explosive devices or munitions, including replica or inert grenades or other simulated military munitions, whether or not such items are for display purposes. These products are not permitted in the mail under any circumstances.
However I'm sure if it's packed well in a box you would have no problems, as replica munitions are sent in the mail all the time. (Just not actual live ammo)

That's because Canada Post isn't legally allowed to open your packages. If they have a suspicion about a package, they can alert the authorities to handle it; and of course the CBSA can and will open anything coming into the country. I guess the big question is; "are you willing to get caught?". You can however mail an airsoft gun, or the belt itself. Or if the object can be disassembled into small non distinguishable pieces then "technically" it should be fine.

He said he is in Alberta right now flying back home to BC. OP is in country.

I didnt know CP wasnt allowed to legally open your packages however. Thanks for that. I was told they do xray them however. But thats from someone at the CP store and not the ware house worker.

IIRC if it goes on an airplane then it gets x-rayed. Ground parcel doesn't. Also I thought that both CP and CBSA was allowed to open packages in an official capacity (ie. lettercarrier opens your package they can be prosecuted for intercepting mail but will not be if done in an official capacity).

Thats interesting. Oh course all this is just speculation. The husband of one of my co workers is a supervisor at the CP sorting facility in missassuagassauassaguassuga. Ill ask him next time I see the guy.

Ya do that. I was under the understanding from a person that works at a post office for Canada Post, that they or their employees cannot open a package. They do have to report anything suspect to the authorities. The CBSA is a separate entity, and is actually considered a part of national security. Their officers "must" check anything coming into the country within reason. An airport has different laws however. They have security personnel that checks packages going into flight, but once again they are not employees of the airlines or Canada post. As for the person running the X-ray machine, or other devises like that, I'm not sure what the legislation on them is.
