Is the carrying of holstered or shoulder-slung loaded air rifles and/or air pistols permitted in Durham Region, as long as they are not used to threaten individuals? If not, are unloaded ones permitted to be carried?

Carrying a holstered or shoulder-slung loaded or unloaded air rifle/pistol is not a good idea. You could be in violation of the Criminal Code by doing so, as police officers cannot determine your intent and you will likely be disturbing the public peace by carrying an air rifle/pistol.
You may also want to check with the city in which you reside because there are often by laws related to the discharge of air pistols/rifles.
