How about I make it simple? If, or when, you get caught they can do all of the following: seize and destroy the gun. Fully take your car apart to find more stuff you may have tried to smuggle. Charge you with a criminal act. Give you a Criminal record. Put your ass in jail. Bar you from crossing the Border ever again.

Want that? It's your choice. It's your life after all. Try to get a job with a criminal record or after you get flagged at Customs for smuggling. Try to get a security clearance. Feel free to ignore that advice for the sake of a toy gun.

They can't do shit if you declare it. All they can do it take it away and destroy it.

They can, and will, search your car to see if you may have tried to smuggle something else. They can charge you with a whole lot of things. They can make your life miserable. They can add you to their watch-list.

Styrak, if they want to they can do pretty much what they want. Feel free to ask an actual border guard (off the record) about what they can do. I have.

Seen it too.

BTW they dont have to put your car back together after they search it.

Anyway, it's really his choice to try and find out who'se right. I'm just pointing out what can happen.

So basically, they want us to pay a heck of alot of money to buy guns in Canada, because the stores that sell them to us pay a heck of alot of money to the government via licences and tariffs. To ensure this, importing a gun yourself is illegal.

Am I missing something? or is this all about the government squeezing every penny out of us once again?

Okay, this is about the 3rd time I have heard that someone had passed the border from US to Canada with Airsoft Guns no problems. Two of them having to CONFIRM first that they are allowed to do so. One of my friend even had brought a CYMA MP5J through the airport all the way from the Great wall of China.

This really tells you something.

By this time, it's really something to look into now. I feel that many people here are very "Against" the fact like these and they try not to believe it because they don't want to think that they payed Extra $$ buying these in Canada.

I'm trying to investigate this myself. Emailing about this to the customs, they only gave me the link to their site where it says that Airsoft guns are not allowed to be imported which is 5 years old.

Okay, you've heard of a whopping THREE times that airsoft guns were allowed in to the country.

What if I tell you about the SIX that I have had seized? And yes, I've called the CCRA (as it was known before) AND the CBSA on various issues surrounding this before and after seizure and all times have had CONFIRMED answers that they're prohibited from importation. I've contacted the Vancouver, Mississauga, Toronto, and Montreal ports and have received the same answers from all of them: THEY'RE NOT ALLOWED.

Six of mine got seized, while the ones that made it through were one of this thread, one that's your buddies, and another one that you didn't mention. Of those numbers you've now heard, there's at least a 66% chance of seizure.

I currently carry a red-flag for six more years on not only my business name, but also on my personal name and passport. I'm heavily scrutinized every time I cross air and land crossings and every single time I import an item in to the country. Of the four times I've crossed the border in the passed year, I've had my vehicle inspected when crossing by land and have had all my checked and carry-on luggage searched when traveling by air. I can guarantee you, international travel for me is a bitch.

Still want to take the risk?



Getting busted by customs for smuggling is NOT fun.

Who else would it be seized by?

What do you mean by "Non-Courier"?

Non-Courier as in if the person had imported the item through the boarder in person.

As in flight or road trips.

My 7 year red-flag is the result of me attempting to bring goods in to the country without declaration.

My gf was ready to throttle me when they started to take her father's car apart.
At that moment, I was no longer concerned with the raping that customs was going to give me. I'm sure you can imagine why.
