Yeah well we can get our AEGs across to the USA but can't bring them back.
On a side note:
Your event reminds me of what we have here in Quebec: Bicolline which is a middle-age reenacment. I always wanted something like this but for airsoft and now I see there is one. Yes it really seems awesome, but AEGs are harder to carry out than Latex Swords and shield

i will not pretend to know how difficult it is to get an AEG shipped into canada. i don't know what your laws require. We do have it set up where out of towners can ship their AEGs to the admins to have them delivered to the field, and we will ship them back. whether that works with canada or not, i wouldn't know. The other option is to buy a Kalash for this event, and afterwards, sell it on ebay in the US. they are like $140 new, shipped to my door. Point is, if this is something you really want to do, don't let the little stuff get in your way. i will do what i can to help, and i only live an hour from the field this year (i know i lucked out)
Bicolline looks like it would be a ton of fun. very impressive attention to detail. the admins wanted this event to be reenactment meets airsoft, and as former US army, i can assure you they have achieved it. Check out their web site and forum, and if you think you want to make it happen, we'll help.

Its not a problem to bring our guns in to the US its a problem brining them back in to Canada. Its illegal to import Airsoft guns into Canada.
What about rental guns?

Rental guns could probably be set up for a reasonable price ($8-10 per day), but we would have to have it paid for several months in advance. it would likely be TM AK47's and Kalash AK74's. and when you look at that, you might as well buy a kalash and sell it afterwards.
What are the rules for shipping a replica into Canada? does it have to go to a licensed dealer? just my curiousity at this point...how do you guys get a hold of AEG's?
