Crossing into Canada with a handgun

I will be crossing into Canada from Alaska and back to Alaska and was planning on taking along a Ruger Alaskan 44mag with a 2.5" barel. Does anyone know if this would be legal, the items I read make it sound like hunting handguns are legal but then also says they must be a 4" or longer barel? If not is there anyway to get a temporary pass?

I went to Canada for a bear hunt and they said absolutely no hand guns allowed.

That is what I was told by the outfitter. Maybe check with the state dept.

Re: Crossing into Canada with a handgun

Why:: hand gun with barrel less than 105MM-4.1 inches is a prohibited device, its not restricted but PROHIBITED.
If you want ---google canada fire arms laws-canada politics in canada-wikipedia-contents-item number 4-prohibited hand guns.
If you do this and read it will tell you why.

How if you want to have a hand gun in Alaska and then travel to lower 48, I would suggest.
contact a FFL dealer in Alaska and have your hand gun shipped from your lower 48 FFL to Alaska FFL dealer. But better check Alaska hand gun laws first
I have been in and out of Canada for years hunting and found out they don't screw around with the laws. In fact last time when driving up on a non hunting trip they tore my PU apart looking for fire arms even when I said no, just because I had a NRA sticker on camper window

Re: Crossing into Canada with a handgun

prohibited firearm means a handgun that has a barrel equal to or less than 105 mm in length. Less than 4in.approx. good luck bringing one into CANADA.
