Yup. I can give you 3 serious incidents in Manitoba alone inthe last 10 years.
We had a kid (17) a couple of years back before the 18+ rule who got ahold of a GBB. When his mom found it she went apeshit. She found out about our local association and looked up one of the members - not even the one who sold her kid the gun - and went to his place of business and started screaming at him in the middle of a public mall about how he could condone selling illegal weapons to minors. She did this in front of dozen of witnesses and could have cost this person their job. She was set to call the cops and have him arrested in his place of work.
Additionally, a few years back we had the police pick up a kid (18 ) who decided it would be a good idea to take his Mac10 airsoft into his girlfriend's apartment under his coat. A neighbor saw, called the cops, and the two of them were picked up by the cops as they left her apartment to head to dinner with her parents, IIRC.
Then, of course, there was the (now banned) ASC member 2 years back that got busted with a substantial airsoft collection while they were dealing large quantities of dope. You can, of course, look up all these threads using the search button.
