FedEx

My supplier has changed his shipping now to FedEx...He normally uses TNT but had some concerns with damaged parcels as of late !!! ...

I'll just have to wait & see what happens I guess !!!
Package was shipped on Nov 20th....

Anyone have any FedEx stories they might want to share...good or bad ??

Did you ever see the start of the very first Ace Ventura movie where he's a UPS driver? All couriers are like that!

Cleaned this up a bit so it's on topic,

Hapless Airsofter: Sounds Broken.

Ace Ventura: Most likely sir. I bet it was something nice, though. Now, this is an insurance form; if you'll just sign here, here and here and print your name here and initial here, we'll get the rest of the forms out to you as soon as we can.

FedEx Update...

HOLY SHIT...
HOLY SHIT...
HOLY SHIT...

I can't believe that my order that was "shipped " on Monday (Nov 19) this week from Hong Kong actually arrived in this afternoon.

This is insane!!! Not even inspected...again!!!
Had to pay $50 bucks but considering the value of goods was over $2K I think that's Friggin amazing!

What to do with all the Hicapa parts...

Christmas has come early!!!!

Same here I just got a $2200 order containing some RIS, Scopes, metal lower receiver and RDS from HK and it was not even opened, I was actually suprised because the box description states that it contain airgun model parts, does this mean that customs are slacking???

BTW My buddy use Fedex, no problems box was not damaged or opened by customs

No, it means Xmas is coming and the volume of packages coming and going is increasing exponentially.

Also I need to mail a picture off my asshole to the CBSA since they seem to enjoy wanting to stick their finger in it so much.

I've had a set of Crye pants sitting in Vancouver since Nov. 11th, awaiting CBSA inspection. I guess they're 2 weeks behind, from what I've heard.

Im well aware of that but I used to work well.

Ive had 5 KJ mags and some M9 springs sitting with customs for over a week and a half. They will get released eventually. Whenever their done using each mags as a butt plug.

Finally recieved my MRE, was tracking it, said it went into customs last thursday, checked monday morning still said it was in customs. Came from work from and theres a delivery slip in my mailbox. I go to the PO, and its my MRE. Go home check the tracking and it says customs still had it. Oh well.

If a seller outside Canada is willing to sell an Airsoft gun and ship it disassembled in about three different shippings, and label it as toy or something, what is likelihood of it being seized by customs?
I was just wondering since it will not look like a replica firearm, and seem you guys here have ordered several metal parts without any problem.

Have any of you guys here done that?

I know this question might have been asked several times but i couldn't find any answer searching the forums.

I just can't stand the prices charged in Canada, particularly for the ones being sold for $100 in the US and $400 in Canada. Even paying for three different USPS shipping would cost way less than here in Canada.

Customs really only cares about the regulated part in any gun, the receiver. They could seize that, and send you the rest of the parts, which would then be useless.

And what airsoft gun exactly does NOT look like a real gun enough to NOT be considered a replica?
