Border, The (TV Series)
The Border was a Canadian-produced drama series about the agents of the fictional Immigration and Customs Security agency who were tasked with investigating various threats and crimes that occurred along Canada’s borders. The series aired for three seasons from 2008 to 2010 on CBC Television, as well as in syndication in other countries.
The following weapons were used in the television series The Border:
