They didn't ask and it's none of their buisness.

I carry. When we did the FROG Rally in Niagara Falls, I shipped mine to the campground where we planned to spend our first night back in the states. I had made a reservation and asked if I could ship a box them and would they hold until my arrival. Sure, no problem was the answer.

I had to ship it UPS overnight in a locked case and no ammo. I had to take it to the local UPS office and show them it was in a locked case and no ammo. It was packed in a cardboard box.

It all worked out perfectly, I just had to buy some ammo after I picked it up at the campground. The campground did not know or care what was inside the package.

I would never try to sneak a weapon into Canada.

Good idea ! From watching too many boarder security shows, dont bring ammo either, they will tear your rig apart, looking for the gun it belongs to.

First time posting on the computer, always use the App.
Cool Warning !!!

Handguns are prohibited weapons while long guns (single-action rifles and shotguns) are restricted weapons.

You cannot bring the prohibited weapon into Canada no-way, no how. If you forget and have it with you at the border, best to still declare it and the friendly agent will appreciate that and either take it away for destruction or allow you to turn around. If you have, don't declare and its found, you will be going to the pokey. Since the advent of data sharing, even if you don't have it if you get sent to secondary inspection it may show up on your file and you will be asked where it is.

You can bring in the restricted long guns as long as the paperwork and fee has been done in advance and its properly declared and stored.

I definitely no intent on trying to take weapon into Canada. But, I would really like to take it with me for the rest of the trip. I looked at UPS and FedEx policy for shipping weapons and it is not allowed unless you are sending it to a licensed firearms dealer.

I am hoping to try to find one of my CMA buddies or a Firearms dealer either store it or ship it to. I just thought there would be a place that would keep it and pick it up on my return.

I might just skip Canada and travel through Maine although I would love to ride the Cabot Trail on the Vic.

If you know the town where you're crossing, Google "gun shops with FFL transfer in X town"

That should bring up several privately owned shops. Call them and ask if they could accommodate your request. They already temporarily store weapons shipped to them, should be no issue to put yours in the same safe for a nominal fee.

In Missouri and most other States weapons of any kind are off limits in banks.
