Heck you aren't allowed to even ship batteries as its on their hazzardous materials list, I was hassled at the PostOffice when I was trying to mail an AEG battery. But yet we still mail batteries, replica munitions, fake m203 shells and what CP can't see doesnt hurt them

Replica munitions means replica munitions, whether they be deactivated or completely fake.
how do they know whats in the package???they dont look at incountry mail. if they did they would shit their pants(me and my buddy laugh bout it)

Every shop that sells live ammunition in Saskatchewan requires you to present your valid and up-to-date PAL.

Uh, my battery shipments have all passed unmolested, and quite a few have been opened, both rechargeable and non-rechargeable.

Effin' inconsistency...

I keep ordering 200$+ order of rechargeable batteries... and they always arrive via CP... sometimes they looked at the package... most of the time it is written on the box that it is batteries.... still they never stoped or complained..

Because they take time to make and are normally not made in great quantities. The person who makes them does not work for free.

Powder for flintlocks and modern firearms is NOT the same. Please double check your information before you get a disaster someday or suggest it to anyone else.

Since when dont they look or scan packages?
They look with less effort than for stuff crossing the Border, but they do scan on occasion or if there is an alert.

(Thanks Illusion, I had replied to 3 different posts, I really should have consolidated.)

Holy Triple posts batman!

I recall reading that 4.6 and 5.7 where illegal munitions on the law website. Could be wrong but I know ammunition for P90's isn't legal here, nor is the MP7.

The only illegal ammunition is armor piercing. What they do is make the gun itself Restricted or Prohibited, which in effect causes the same results.

You can still make 'fake' ammo if you have the right equipment, and that is not restricted. Anyone who ever reloaded ammo can do this with the right tools.

Just take the advice of the 'real steel' gun owners and those who reload their own ammo. It's better than just reading about it.

That's weird, NATO uses the P90, how can it be illegal?

err since when exactly? Civi variants of the P90 (which uses the 5.7 cartridge) are available for sale, and use in Canada.

Edit - Addition - Though 5.7x28 isn't exactly cheap...

My P90 mags all have MOD. P90 50-ROUND MAGAZINE-2001-RESTRICTED LAW ENFORCEMENT/GOVERNMENT USE ONLY

I've never seen a real steel(Or plastic, in this case? ) P90 mag up close, but I'm pretty sure the real ones have that too. There's a variant of the P90 that's made for the civie market, I'm not sure if that still uses the 5.7X28 bullet, though.

PS90 is the civilian version of the P90. its shoots the same ammo and has the same internals but lacks the capability to fire on full-auto,it also has a longer barrel and a green colored stock. any ammunition made for piercing armor is illegal for civilian use and possession.

the FS2000 is the civilian version of the F200. it shoots the same ammo and has the same internals but lacks the capability to fire on full-auto, it also has a green colored stock.

only a few lucky guys have gotten their hands on those two neat looking firearms. unfortunately the ammo is like "de la marde de pape"...very hard to find.

PS90 (5.7x28mm)

FS2000 (5.56x45 nato)
