Canadian student who ordered an MP3 player over the internet from the US was shocked to receive a licensed handgun instead. Brandon Buchan, 21, an English student at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon, bid for the MP3 player on eBay, the Star Phoenix newspaper said. The pawnshop that auctioned the device sent him an unloaded .22-calibre Smith & Wesson gun and a licence by mistake. A Canadian customs official said not all parcels were X-rayed at the border. 'I'm no hit man' The package, sent by courier, was labelled as containing an MP3 player. "I was really shocked to see it was a gun," Mr Buchan told the newspaper.
