Travel thru Canada

Recommended Posts

We plan on driving to Alaska which requires us to drive thru Canada.  I usually carry a handgun in my RV. Is that permitted in Canada?

Welcome to the Forum.

In plane terms NO.

Not at the Boarded and not hidden. That is the best way to get arrested.

Sorry,

Herman

Find a gun dealer on your side of the border and have them ship to Alaska for you 

Safe travels

You need to understand just how serious they take this. Best practice is to purge any evidence that there ever was a wepon on board. Make ABSOLUTLEY certain there is no ammo, this includes empty brass, cleaning supply's, holsters ect. You may be held for ammo and will be selected for extra attention search. They can dismantle your RV and toad and they don't have to put it back together.

A few years ago we took a trip to Alaska with a group. One of the group had the permits to take a rifle through Canada. Unfortunately he also hid a semi automatic pistol under the bed. At the first Canada crossing he presented the permit. Agents asked to see the gun and then proceeded to search his Newell coach. They found the pistol,  he was taken into custody and held for 24 hrs. He was heavily fined, his weapons were seized.They hinted they might seize his coach. He was allowed to continue but at each border crossing, both US and Canada his coach was searched  thoroughly. He finally gave up and went home. Oh, and he was not allowed to enter Canada again for several years.

Canada used to have a strict procedure for entering with a handgun. This year's shooting changed that, this is the incoming laws: https://www.publicsafety.gc.ca/cnt/cntrng-crm/frrms/c21-en.aspx

Presently this is Canadian law: https://www.ezbordercrossing.com/the-inspection-experience/transporting-firearms/bringing-a-firearm-into-canada/ , note it does not address importing handguns, only long guns of a non-military style.

This from the NRA is interesting and informative information: https://www.americanhunter.org/content/when-crossing-the-border-beware-the-lost-bullet/
