Before I answer anything at all, please see this thread before continuing on.

In the future your thread title maybe edited, possibly to something that you may or may not like.

Moving along to the topic at hand. Many players will discourage you from playing the role of a sharp shooter due to the fact that you will be out gun by those who have AEGs, however I will let you make the decision for yourself.

In short, high quality spring guns are found to be the most consistent.

Of course not, there are also AEG based sniper rifles, gas based rifles as well as converted from AEG to single shot style DMR guns as well.

What clubs are in Ontario? I am from Toronto Ont
There are a few, they are listed here on this website if you know where to look.
There is a sniper clinic being run in the next couple of months that you maybe interested in looking at.

Not many due to the nature of airsoft in Canada, but there are a few. I will leave the names and locations left to those more familiar with the area.

FPS rules differ by the host of the game and region. For example, in my are we play CQB with only guns that are less than 350. While outdoors our AEGs can go all the way up to 425 and bolt actions up to 470ish I believe. For future reference FPS is based on using the weight of 0.2g BBs. Airsoft in general can get you in trouble with the law if you go out in public brandishing it like a fool. As for FPS any FPS would deem an airsoft gun a firearm would be to hot to use an airsoft game anyways.

Yes, BBs do begin to drop after a certain distance. This is countered by a device called a hop up, essentially what this part does is it puts a backspin on the BB allowing it to travel a farther distance unhindered. Using a heavier BB will also attribute to greater distanced shorts, however you will have reduced FPS.

Thats hard to say, due to so many varying brands and quality. Ignoring low end guns entirely, lets take a Tokyo Marui made VSR, stock out of the box. We should expect this item to be performing around 290-300FPS with a .2g bb. Lets say 30-40 meters max effective range. Lets take a fully upgrade maruzen APS2 shooting 480FPS with a 0.2. Instead of using a 0.2g BB we swap a 0.3g BB in its place, with hopup we should be able to have an effective range of 60-70meters now.

They are not required to be clear, the only reason why they are clear is that they are required to have their respective restricted receiver part be clear for importation.
I could carry on but my fingers are tired and Im sure you have many more questions. However before you post anything else I recommend you refer to this section first. Its the Frequently asked question section, also known as the FAQ. It should have almost all if not all the answers to the questions you may have.

There were other posts in this thread, however they were useless and uninformative, so I deleted them. Useless posts have been a poor trend as of late. If no one has anything useful to add then STFU and GTFO.
