The short answer to your question is that the term "prohibited" really does mean prohibited. In your case, if the firearms meet the criteria for prohibition, whether it be as a result of calibre or barrel length, then don't even think of trying to import them. I cannot speak with any knowledge of the firearms you're contemplating importing so I don't know if their barrels are longer or shorter than 105mm. If the barrels are shorter than 105mm then sell them in Hungary. If you try to import them to Canada and they are deemed prohibited then they will be seized and destroyed and you will not be compensated in any way.

: Hey guys,
: Hoping you can clear up some questions that i have regarding the law in Canada, I'll be immigrating there soon as a skilled worker (I'm an orthopedic surgeon), I live in hungary at the moment and have a licence for a 9mm handgun, it's a H&K 9mm Expert which I use in competitions and a Walther P99,

: i read on the website that guns of .25 and .32 AND/OR barrel length less than 105mm are prohibited

: it's the 105mm barrel length that worries me, will i be able to import my guns here and if not can i get a licence and buy the firearms again in Canada, I shoot in IPSC comps regularily and would like to keep it up,

: I'm moving to London, ON, by the way

: Thanks
