Where on this site can I read current info on the laws and policies that affect airsoft in canada, I will be reading the criminal code.. and the regulations , and the firearms Act.
but more specific to the point info would be nice?
more specific and to the point than the actual law?

anything else is someone else's interpretation, which would not be specific or to the point.

but here is an executive summary

all Airsoft guns are 100% legal to posses for anyone over 18 years of age

All airsoft guns are imitation firearms

Some airsoft guns could be deemed replicas if they fire a .22g bb less than 407 FPS

Replicas are prohibited devices and can't be transfered by individuals. But if you have one it's legal to posses.

Clear receiver guns are generally not deemed to be replicas.

If a gun fires over 407 FPS with a .22 g bb it can cause significant bodily harm, and so it is deemed to be a firearm. However seeing as it shots at less than 500 FPS and less than 5.7 joules muzzle energy you do not require a license to transfer it these items are deemed to be "unregulated firearms" and are legal to import, buy , sell , trade , loan or give to another person.

does that make it clear?
