Shipping a PB Gun to Canada

Well I sold the Pro E, but I'm wondering about shipping.  The kid's from Canada, and I'm not sure about sending the gun over the border.  Will there be any trouble?  Just figured I should check it out before I sent the gun.  Any help is appreaciated.  Thanks.

I've never had trouble, but i've only done it a few times.

They do random checks I believe. Just hope yours doesn't get checked.

Its not like its illegal to send a pnuematic device through USPS or across the border.

I know that, it's just it will either be a delay or a jerk will steal it.

if you tell the USPS or UPS it's a paintball device they will not let you send it. i tried to mail something else out in an appache hopper box i had laying arround and they wouldn't let me use that box because it was paint ball related. fedEx will mail paintball guns and accessories as far as i know.

these are only my experiences, take them for what they are.

Well it's in a car stereo box.  Should I just say it's a stereo if they ask?

Ive sent Upgrades over. I'd just tell them it's a radio, and i doubt they'd check it.

USPS, won't let you send something if it isn't in a box that is brown or mostly plain and barcodes must be nulled so they can't be used. Otherwise, they don't need to ask what it is, just if it is harmful or toxic.

Right, if they ask say its a pnuematic device.


And smitty, i wouldn't lie about it. That will get you in more trouble. Paintball guns are just pnuematic devices, so its just not the whole truth  Wink

Alright.  I'll put some brown paper over it or something and mark over the bar codes.  Thanks for all of the help everyone.  If I don't post again for a few months, someone come bail me out of jail.  Wink
