    My glock 40 and when I arrive at the border I then present it and sign in front of the customs officer. See the website and you'll learn something on how non residents transporting restricted firearms. It's good for 60 days again on the website

    They never read this part. "This information applies only to firearms that are neither restricted nor prohibited, as set out in Part III of the Criminal Code of Canada." Fortunately they only take the gun and and send you back home. You're never going to enter Canada again though.

    This is my THIRD permit, so I have first hand experience in having it granted. "Prohibited" is anything UNDER 4.1 inches in barrel length. Read form RCMP GRC 5490e

    The rule is must have a cylinder or barrel lock and in a locked box with either ammo locked in a seperate case or in the gun case. I use a pelican double lock case. I fly all over the US with it and also haven't had any problems, YES I know Canada is a different planet. LOL

    We can kill this- not carrying a weapon. I had already done the homework and knew I was allowed to carry through Canada- the question was "SHOULD I".
    Although I am very experienced with close firearm combat... I still don't feel the need to carry. My buddy was a little concerned and knew that I am experienced with firearms- so he suggested we (I) carry just as a precaution. I was looking to the forum for someone with experience in this matter since I really didn't want to keep up with a weapon during the trip.

    Thank you all for the entertainment of yet another ADVRider Dick Measuring Contest.

    If you are a non-resident, the reason for transporting your restricted firearms into Canada must be selected from Box 8 k), m) or n). If you have another reason for transporting a restricted firearm into Canada, put a check mark in Box 8 o) and provide further details in the space provided.

    Wrong.

    Hmmm... I must be wrong, but I thought that even when the Alaska Troopers work with RCMP the Troopers hand over their Glocks at the border...

    Not that I don't LOVE guns (I love my guns)... Let's talk Gear.... :D

    I'm going to do a load-out when I get back this weekend. I'm trying to get everything in the panniers except the tent which will strap to the top case and a medium backpack on the pillion. My top case is nothing more than a home for the Phantom 4 Drone I'm dragging along- so that space is dead to me. I've done a bunch of long range hikes in the most austere conditions- so I packed mostly lightweight, small footprint items most of which I've posted on the blog.

    We are doing the RDV Rally May 11th to test the gear and riding down to Key West to officially kick off the Ultimate Coast to Coast Iron Butt Association Mike and Kevin Do Alaska Run on May 29th. :ricky
