BBs restricted??

I ordered some pouches and ksc 0.25bbs from airsoftgi a week ago and today I get a call from them saying that they can't ship the bbs because they were now a restricted item for canada. I remember last month I got some bbs from them and it made it over the border same brand different weight(0.20).

This is the first I heard of of this dose anyone know more about this?

Thanks

Problem is UPS... UPS never has their shit wired straight... NEVER USE UPS....

UPS IS EVIL seriously non AS related UPS has been a nightmare for me with photo gear and I am not just talking super inflated major high brokerage

Service sucks, Tracking sucks, People Suck

UPS is banned for me... if they don't ship US postal then I don't buy from them..

My freind is aslow having trouble with UPS at tihis time they say that they refuse to shipp his pakage to Canada at this time.

I think that they have theirs own troubles with customs right now.

Try another carrier like fedex to see if it's really restricted but i highly doubt it is.

I think UPS has a general ban on anything going to Canada that's from an airsoft store. Even if you're just buying a bag of marshmallows. If it's from airsoft blah blah blah they'll say it's restricted.

For pouches I ordered a hydration carrier,2x40mm gernade pouches and a pair of goggles.
They have already shipped that to me should be here soon.

I don't think any the pouches are restricted. They just told me the bbs were and could ship it.

UPS

UPS

U = User
P = PLEASE
S = Suckit


NEVER NEVER NEVER and I repeat NEVER Use ups (or OOPS) unless you like getting screwed without the pleasure of a reach-around...


It I can't get it USPS then I really don't need it...

I always cringe when I see the Purolator (they handle UPS for Sudbury) truck pull up. While I know that something I purchased has finally arrived I'm also hit with the realization that I'm going to be raped by brokerage.

Never had a problem with something not showing up yet though.
