Clearsoft = Canadian legal?

Hey guys,

I just wanted to clear something up as I'm getting a little confused by what a lot of online retailers are stating.

Basically, the new models with clear lower receivers are being advertised as "Canadian legal". Does this mean that my full metal AEGs are no longer legal?

I know about the whole "Airsoft falls into a grey area of the law", but I just wanted to know if retailers are saying this because the clear bottomed receivers are legal to import without a license and this is just a marketing gimmick, or if there are more freedoms with running around with a clear bottomed receiver as opposed to a full metal one.

I'm guessing you're in just as much trouble with the law if a cop catches you running around with a clear bottomed receiver as a full metal one, only he'll probably shoot you first if you're seen with the latter.

I personally hate clear bottomed receivers, but I just wanted to know if anybody knows the legal advantages of having them in this country.

Thanks
