Question Canadians : Help me w/ getting my glock, please

I'm a Canadian national, trying to buy a glock 30. The major hurdle here is that the glock 30 needs a longer barrel from a company such as lone wolf to be Canada legal. I called rockyourglock.com and they told me that my best options were to have someone else assemble it with the new barrel and send it to me, or to pick it up in the u.s. ... Do you have any idea how I can get my glock ? .... I've only ever gotten non-restricted guns before.
It's not prohibited once you install the new barrel, because concealed handguns are so evil when you could just open carry, oh wait, no, no open carry up here.

Tailypoe- there is a reason for that.

Exporting firearms from the US requires a permit from the bloody State Dept. Moderately expensive, and a bit of a PITA.

Your best, albeit an expensive bet, would be to find a US Exporter that would make the modifications to the Glock-o-your-dreams, and then export it to you. Sorry, bro, we have our own goverment headaches here.

Any such maneuvering other than through official channels will be a criminal offense on BOTH sides of the border. We certainly do not advocate illegal behavior here and I am sure you were speaking in terms of doing so legally, right?

Canebrake,
How easy is it to buy it from an FFL in the u.s. ?

Tailypoe, this is C3, not Canebrake- but to give you an answer- not very hard- it DOES vary a bit depending on what State you are in.

In general, you will need two IDs with your address. To buy a handgun, you and the dealer must reside in the same state. Rifle or shotgun, no matter.

If not a US citizen, you must show legal presence (my lady is a Brit, has a green card- permanent resident of US) OR that you meet one of the named exemptions (have a US state hunting license, on vacation, want to buy a shotgun).

You fill out a questionnaire- known as Form 4473. It asks about conditions that disqualify you from buying a gun (age, convicted of certain crimes, mental incompetence, under criminal indictment or fugitive, etc) and also asks if you are the actual buyer of the gun.

Dealer runs a computer check either with the State Police or the Feds (it is different in different states) Takes 5 minutes or so WHEN computers are behaving. In most states, pay the man, take your gun, leave. In some, you have a waiting period before picking it up.

There are some states that require a Firearm Owner's ID Card, some require a permit to purchase a handgun- most do not.

I understand you were asking about how to LEGALLY get a Glock imported into Canada that will meet Canadian law- and there is the rub. In order for a dealer or anyone else to ship a gun to Canada for transfer to someone else, we need an export permit. And since you would not be a resident of the US state where you would acquire it, you can't do it yourself.

A friend just spent $600 to export a .303 SMLE to Australia (where it was made) as a donation to a military museum. It ain't easy.

There ARE companies here that specialize in import/export of firearms, an have the permits to do so legally. Otherwise, gun will get snagged in US Customs, and never make it to Canada. I can dig out name and address is you need, but getting ready to go on the road for a week, so will be a while.

PS- Used to be in a unit partnered with Princess Pat's boys- really good soldiers. If my ramble above did not get you the info you needed, please speak up. Best regards- C3

I'd like that a lot. Thanks c3, I thought cane was being oddly nice.
It's not going to be an issue for another 3 or so months, but It's good to know.
