I'm sure it's different now but in 1970 we got to the border with a 357 in coach.We had not planned to go that way so I declared the gun.They took my gun and shipped it back to me 2 weeks later,which they said they would do.

Depending on where you plan to cross, some campgrounds near the border will store firearms for you. Near Shelby, Mt. Lewis & Clark campground has a locker for guns. That's who we used when we went to Alaska last summer crossing at Sweetgrass. Of course you have to come back that way, but we planned on that anyway.

Firearms Taurus Handgun

Mbrandt1402.
This probably doesn't apply to the thread but the Taurus Judge has a [5] five shot cylinder of either two and a half or three inch length and isn't only for shot shells.
It will also fire 44 cal Long brass shells. This might get around the shotgun status of the pistol. Depending who is asking.
It might be a difficult explaination in California.

This is a link to the Canadian Border Services regulations on firearms.

Importing a Firearm or Weapon Into Canada

Asking for legal advice on internet forums may not be the best idea. Better to ask where the information is available.

Hi All:

Here is a link for your info regarding regulations etc:
D19-13-2 - Importing and Exporting Firearms, Weapons and Devices

My suggestion- leave em at home or bring a baseball bat, bow and arrow or a bag of rocks.

How about if the handgun is broken down and sent via UPS in two separate boxes? Is it still a firearm if it no longer can fire a round? I plan to make a reservation at a USA campground near my exit point and notify them to hold a couple of packages that are being forwarded to me.

The other question is shipping ammunition. Does UPS allow it? Sounds like a visit to the UPS website is in order.

If none of this is possible, then Canada will never experience the benefits of my presence...including my American dollars.

You can NOT mail gun anywhere. Has to be shipped, UPS-Fed X by someone who has a FFL.

Wrong.

Anyone in the USA can legally ship a gun to an FFL.

You could even ship your handgun from yourself in your state to yourself in another state for pickup for sporting purposes .

So if you are going through Canada just ship your gun to yourself in Alaska.

Btw a FFL can ship a handgun via UsPs but an individual cannot.

The above statement is not true. Refer to [18 U.S.C. 1715, 922(a)(3), 922(a)(5) and 922 (a)(2)(A)]

Again, the correct information is available by a simple web search. Follow this link to the ATF web site. Read FAQ #7.

ATF Online - Firearms - Frequently Asked Questions - Unlicensed Persons

These federal gun laws are serious business. Most convictions are punishable by 10 years and a $10,000 fine. Chances are you wouldn't get that for a first offense but take my word for it, you don't want to be in federal court. And if you are convicted you won't have to worry about how to ship a firearm anymore because you won't be allowed to possess a firearm for the rest of your life. For accurate information you need to go to an official source.

When we lived in Toronto, I took my rifles (all bolt actions) and shotguns (all pump action) and registration was easy. I had all of the documentation ready when we crossed the border. I left my pistols with my brother.

What it all comes down to is that you have to research the requirements for each area that you will be traveling through. You can find the information on line for each state and Canada. But do not blindly take the word of the Internet gurus.

The Judge has a rifled barrel and is considered a handgun in many places including Canada.
It shoots .410 shotshells and .45 long colt, not .44.
