Don't take weapons with you...answer all questions truthfully...don't become a wise guy with border agents, they can take hours searching your vehicle...:yup::blink::gah:Why would it even be an issue? If you are not transporting then there is nothing to say.
It's like declaring you have a dog back home and to prove it you show TSA a picture of Fido. Why would anyone consider doing it? It doesn't make any sense. :smoke23:
No dont have to disclose status of permit but
they will probably ask some firearm related questions.
The border guard asked me the following
1: Do you own any firearms
2: For what reason do you own firearms
3o you have a concealed permit
4: Why did you not bring a gun since you have a permit
Border guard also asked everyone in the car for passport and
ID. Asked everyone if they had any weapons of ANY kind in the
car including guns, knives, or pepper spray.
some think the border guard cant see that someone has a permit
but I am pretty sure they are able to since the guard didnt ask anyone
else in the car I was in except for me about having a permit.
I am looking at a short trip into Canada while on vacation with my family. Is this something that is easily done? Have you used this service before? How do I find some information on this? Thanks for the help?Oh by the way if you want to take a gun on the
trip you can but will have to leave it at the border
station and fill out some paperwork then of course just
pick it up on the way back. Think they may charge a fee for this
service if you wanna call it a service.
Since I have never visited Canada before, is the border guard that you are refering to U.S. or Canadian?I have not used the service before but the border guard
knew I had a permit. He asked why I didnt bring my gun
since I had a permit. I responded because I was just on family
vacation and didnt see a need to bring it. Then he said well you
know you can check firearms in and keep them here dont you.

link may help answer any questions you have.
Of course if someone tries to get into Canada and doesnt declare firearms
and the officer finds firearms they will be taken away without return and possible criminal charges. Some guns you can fill out some paperwork and bring
into Canada but only under special conditions
