If the CBSA just took a list down of all the AV'd people ... tracked our IPs figured out who we were and just stuck us ALL on the black list :P

WOULDN'T THAT BE ALOT EASIER!? lol

But yes on to Saint's point. It is well known that there are AV'd CBSA personnel on ASC.
lol, that would be an awful deal - you would be actively participating in the restriction of a hobby you enjoy.

It would be like someone that loved weed working for the DEA (assuming he wasn't completely crooked :P )

May I ask why we have age verified CBSA personell on here?....if we do.

I know we don't want to appear to hide anything but still....if they're just out to tear down our evil naughty hobby of responsibley playing with toy guns in good fun, like aren't we just bending over?

If anything, they should have a list of AV'd active members with a clean history and let them import airsoft stuff.

It's just so....ridiculous, that we are hammered the way we are for simply playing a game in good fun. Like really, this community is of no danger to anyone. We do our own thing. I know there's shit heads out there loking to get on here, but we seem to be able to weed them out more efficiently than ever.

Again though, the blacklist must be huge by now....how do they get around to checking any of the non-blacklisters?

It might be computer controlled, where if no packages are flagged by their blacklist computer in like...an hour they go "Ok..We're bored, let's rip open some packages!"

Although yeah, I must say that air soft gun prices in Canada and in the States make me sad.

If you're not a retailer than you don't have too much to worry about unless you're known to break the rules on a regular basis :P

It's their job to monitor the importation of controlled items into Canada, they have to enforce the law so they are on here But whatever's in the country is out of their interest unless the said items are showing up in the media being used in crimes, well than here comes the RCMP

I called up the CBSA office @ the airport here asking a few questions about controlled items, right after that a shipment I had from HK was inspected thoroughly and it cleared fine

You do know that you do, you don't know that you don't. Inquiries about employment is not part of age verification, nor is questioning the person about whether they are here to spy on us or not.

I think CBSA investigations are like any other human endeavor - they go after the easy pickings first. The easiest is to investigate those who's packages routinely come from certain destinations and from certain businesses. Beyond that I don't think they have time to play silly bugger on these forums.

I'm confused with the law a bit, there are some retailer in Canada still selling real steel and aluminum guns, how are they getting them in while other retailers can't? Is it because metal airsoft pistols are legal?

Some are legally imported with the proper paperwork and permits.(No you can't do it.) The rest you would have to use your imagination I guess. Launched over the border with a big elastic band maybe??

I know that there is a blacklist for international customs through airports in which you will be flagged and they will always check your luggage - but is there such a thing for things potentially arriving by mail? I know many people have recieved the letters that said that customs were not releasing restricted items, etc. but is there something like a blacklist I should be worried about if something is sent to me?
Long story short YES their is a Blacklist / watchlist.

I think I got black listed for buying a LIGHTER... it was no bigger then a $5 bill folded in half. Now I can't get anything from international sellers.
So far I have bought but not recieved.

-2 small chrome pistol lighters
-iphone screen cover
-iphone case
-2L hydration system
-Airsoft M4 Mag
-Magpul Sling

Been waiting over 2 months... NOTHING!! Is there a way to get off this BAN!?!?!?
I didn't even buy anything crazy.... a friggin lighter?! COME ON!

Is there a place/websight I can at least check to see if I'm on this "list"... Mabe I'm not and my mailman is a thief

Being on the list don't mean they will seize all your stuff... Only that they will open all your packages (and seize it if its illegal). My bro was put on the list and still order from the state. Never had anything legal seized...

I'd suspect your mailman is a thief. the lighter might look like a pistol, but its clearly not the right size (i.e your example, tiny) so you won't get blacklisted for that. You'd also get a letter from CBSA telling you that said items have been seized.
