    Canada border crossing with firearms

    I was just wondering what I have to look forward to when my wife and I drive into Canada with our trailer. What do I need to bring a couple of long guns and a shotgun across the border. What about a pistol, is that even allowed?

    No pistols allowed in Canada. Go on the Canadian customs website and complete the firearms declaration form. Or you can fill one out at the border. That, along with about $30 us will get up to 3 long guns legally across the border.

    There are web sites you can check for the latest rules. Last time I crossed, hand guns were a no no, I was grilled pretty good and my entire rig was tore apart. They did a complete search, after first asking me if any weapons were in the PU. I said there may be a loose round or two of ammo rolling around, and several knives. All paperwork and the rifle were closely checked too. Time before that only the rifle and paperwork were checked. This is a case where you really want to be spot on.

    Go to your nearest customs agent and declare your firearms and anything else of real value (bino's, scopes and such). If you don't declare your valuables they could try and tax you on your way back to the U.S. Pistols are a no go. Each province has its own rules as well.

    Guns are no problem. You just need to fill out the paperwork and pay the gringo tax. If you have any criminal record including DUI's, you'll have a problem. I've seen co-workers and strangers alike, turned around at border crossings and inside airports only to be sent back on the next airplane to the US because of past DUIs. I had one older co-worker denied a border crossing because his criminal past...a bar fight arrest from the 1960's. If your history is clean you should be alright.

    It's a shame the U.S doesn't take border security as serious as Canada.

    I myself am going up to Alberta in May to look for a bear rug. This fall I'm going back for a whitetail.

    Just don't try to smuggle in any potatoes as they take that real seriously. Some of the border folks think you're a terrorist if they see an NRA sticker on your truck. I work summers in Canada, so I try to make it as smooth as possible.

    Can you bring a potato gun if you leave the ammunition behind?
