    Once a year I goto Canada and have always just left my handgun at home. Is there a way I am able to bring it with me?

    Almost certainly not. In general, the only handguns permitted are non-semi-autos with longer barrels. And even if what you are trying to bring in is your old S&W police revolver w/4" barrel, you certainly couldn't have it loaded or carry it anywhere.

    Here's a fairly comprehensive essay on all the ins and outs of bringing firearms into Canada.

    if you really need one up there, conceal it super well. good luck. I know people that bring theirs up across, but I wouldn't try it

    Well as long as you do not get searched its ok, Otherwise you know they even strip your car when they get to it.

    I've been told the easiest firearm to take into Canada is a hunting rifle or shotgun. I don't know the specifics but I know you have to contact the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

    You could give them a call and find out what you will need for whatever you want to take into Canada.

    I don't know the specifics
    Did you read the link Manu and I posted? It's brim-full with specifics, including links to lots of the relevant Canadian government sites.

    Actually, no I didn't. I was offering my advice to contact the RCMP to find out what the OP might need to do. I'm not trying to get into Canada with a gun so I didn't think I needed to read it.

    But if and when that becomes an issue I will make sure to read your posting, and thank you in advance for giving me everything I will need to know to complete the task.
