As clear as legalize can be.
While I really feel sorry for your case as it is really tempting to buy the gun and bring it back especially when you were in HK where the supply of airsoft guns and items are abundant and cheap. I just visited the HK "Airsoft street" three days ago.
But due to the big difference in CBSA officers' experience, it is no fun when your item got detained and you need to spend extra effort to get it back, which you ultimately will.
At the end of the day, it is your call and hope you get your gun back and enjoy it as soon as possible.
