There was a mass sell off in 2009 in the US when the housing crisis hit - but I don't know why in the past week there's been so many good deals out there.

i.e. a Walnut TX200 tuned by Jim Maccari himself for $425 Shipped!

It's crazy :rolleyes:

Unfortunately it is in the wrong country, you need a firearms import licence, plus you need a fire arms broker, plus you need a gun shop of some kind.

Not exactly very easy to import guns into Canada

This is not the case for air rifles. I am talking about PAL rated long guns that are air rifles. There is no export permit required and no import permit required because these are not firearms in the US, so you can freely exit the country with an air rifle or have it shipped, assuming the shipping company will transport firearms throughout Canada.

In the 7 years I've been doing this, I have brought in well over 10 air rifles from the US to Canada, every time doing this legally. Sometimes I ship them in, other times I have them sent to Niagara Falls USA and drive them across.

I've explained this on the CAF numerous times over the years, but the disinformation about this process lingers, so I'll mention it no more!

The problem is people don't care to do proper research or investigation for themselves, yet still think it wise to share their uneducated/inexperienced opinion of the subject on a public forum...

Seems to be about the gist of it :lol: Precisely why if I don't actually know anything on the matter being discussed; I don't offer up my opinion to others

I had my first experience of buying a PAL rated long gun air rifle from the US last September. As you say, if a person does a little bit of research and a touch of paperwork in advance, buying from "out of country" is as easy as buying in Canada.

I would not hesitate in repeating the excersize.

True
I much rather buy in Canada in the first place. I always have. I have never bought a gun in another country. I don't mind to pay a little extra , especially if I know it takes a bit of work to get that rifle in from another place.

Thank for putting me right, sorry, Powder burner mistake.
