Bringing Firearms to the US
A question that is often asked in our CFSC/CRFSC classes is “can I bring a firearm into the US?” The simple answer is: yes, you can! Canadians who lawfully own firearms may apply for a permit to temporarily import firearms into the US for certain valid purposes. Generally, those purposes are hunting, and to attend a competitive shooting event or gun show. In the recent past, applicants completing the ATF Form 6NIA, the form required for temporary import, would have to provide proof of one of these authorized activities.
