So how do you guys get your stuff delivered to you in canada?? Do you have to fill out the hundreds of forms on your government's website, or do you just tell spec ops where to deliver it to and it gets there?

When you mail something between Canada and the U.S you go to the post office and fill out a short customs declaration form. On it is the name and address of the sender and the person receiving it as well as the box contents and the value of the item I go through the same thing when I mail stuff to the U.S.

And if your lucky, customs will hold onto it for a week, open the box, look at your stuff, close the box, put it back on the shelf for another week, and THEN send it to you.

The job of customs is to inspect packages are you upset that a government department is doing what they are supposed to be doing?

ask anything being imported to be careful of labels.

ask it to be labels as
paintball marker. or paintball marker accesories.
not paintball guns. or paintball barrels

Amd paintball equipment is classifed as sports equipment by customs so put that first then put paintball marker.

I imported a 6 position CAR stock and a NcStar Red Dot sight which were labeled as Paintball Marker Accessories but customs still searched it and added their own label of Firearms Parts. Also, I didn't fill out any form at the post office. When/why does that need to be done? Before your place your order or after or...?

The forms are filled out if you are mailing something out of the country for example to the United States the forms tell customs what is in the box and the value so they know what to charge for taxes. Customs will randomly search the boxes to make sure the labels correctly describe the contents this way you can't mail 5lbs of crack by labeling it as fluffy teddy bears. The problem with a CAR stock and Red dot sight is that they are firearms parts or at least look that way lucky for you they aren't considered prohibited firearms parts.
