That is if he/she takes it out of the box, most likely it will be X-rayed and if it looks like a weapon which amazingly it does *poof* gets tossed aside.

P.S. none of what I said may be accurate but when I first started looking at guns and saw ones from USA here was my first thought "This looks pretty damn real, how the hell would this get cross the border."
You aren't allowed to bring airsoft guns in anyway, so even if it was identified as one it would not get through; you might be able to call one an airgun, but I think you need to be there in person.
