You need an import permit to bring airsoft guns into Canada reliably. Without such a permit, you have to rely on the border official being in a generous mood, because the law says you're not allowed to bring it in. If you do not declare the airsoft gun, it's smuggling and wins you a stripped car, the rubber glove and fines if they catch you.

There are none for individuals. If you are a business with the appropriate licensing, maybe. But businesses don't usually drive or carry them across the border.

Nope. Makes no difference.

Read the FAQ and all will be shown to you.

I think you're missing a 0 in there somewhere.
