No, you cannot bring your airsoft gun into Canada.

Welcome to Canada,

Unfortunately you cannot import your G36 as a whole AEG, but if you wanted to get internal upgrade parts and accessories/parts like stocks, barrels etc sent to you that won't be a problem. G36's are not hard to find here one you are age verified;

Age verification can be done once you are in Canada. Since you are going to Humbolt, Saskatoon will be your closest city to meet with someone to get verified. It can be taken care of once you arrive.

New to Canada

Hi all I have recently moved to canada from Guernsey Channel Islands where i played on a team called Battletec.
I unfortunately had to leave all my kit behind as the regulations here prevented me from bringing it.
Is there anyone who can tell me where in Ontario there are some sites that offer games that are not paintball sites.
Also where do I get age verification that seems to be mentioned over here as well as the best place to purchase some new kit or if i have the right type of kit can I import it myslf from Hong Kong or Japan.

I understand that these are numerous questions but as a newbie to airsoft in Canada I wish to find out all the info I can so I can enjoy my chosen hobbie over here as well.

thankyou in advance
Russ

Look for someone who has "Staff" or "Age Verifier" under their name.

Basically in a nutshell because teens and minors are stupid these rules were enacted voluntarily by the community in canada. This doesn't mean that once you're 18 you're immediately mature and responsible however it does mean you're responsible for your actions and can face the full brunt of the law without being able to hide behind your parents (like most minors do). You do not have to be AV'ed to play or be a part of any communities however it means that it will be hard to find "black" guns as the only stuff that is readily available to the public is what is dubbed "cansoft".

Anyways, it sounds like you're responsible and all that so it shouldn't be a problem for you at all to get AV'ed and be a welcome member of the community.

Also once you get to Canada you'll be in for quite a shock. The prices here are a lot more due to the situation that we have in Canada in regards to airsoft (kind of a grey area already and to make matters worse Border Services follow their own rules/interpretations of the law). Also note that, although you may only see clear receiver guns for sale in Canada, that's far from the truth of what you'll find. In fact there are a lot of "black" guns (black plastic or metal bodies) in Canada if you know where to look, which is right here in the classifieds once you get your verification through.

EDIT: @ radicalruss:

Most of the venues that we play at are paintball sites that do airsoft on the side. There may be some private fields in your area however for the most part the places to play will be paintball sites. AFAIK there are very few dedicated airsoft sites mainly due to the fact that it doesn't bring in too much money for the owners to operate it and pay for their insurance policies and such so yeah that's basically the story of how things work.

the only thing from your kti your not allowed to bring over is your gun technically the reciever mags , sights barrels its all good except that .

Go meet with an age verifier we have retailers that sell new black guns on the classified.

you can't get them any other way realy

I actually wear fleck when I'm playing.

I'm not sure about this but I think Tropentarn might be more effective if you're playing in more of a "badlands" type of setting because there is less vegetation rather it's more brown dominated so Tropentarn might be more effective.

However it's always good to get 2 or 3 sets of BDU's so that you have gear for Green dominated setting, and Brown dominated settings.

All depends where you shop really.

I picked up Flecktarn pants & shirt for about $20 CAD at a Surplus store.

Wilkommen im Kanada. Mein deutch ist eh, rau? lol
