FYI!!!

DO NOT PANIC WHEN YOU READ THIS.

Taken from the criminal code and weapons act.

These are the facts regarding airsoft rifles. However like stated in the first post you will not get into trouble... READ THE Q&A FIRST.

(b) when the vehicle in which it is being transported is not equipped with a trunk or similar compartment that can be securely locked, the replica firearm is not visible from outside the vehicle and the vehicle, or the part of the vehicle that contains the replica firearm, is securely locked.


Taken from the Criminal code. Also in the criminal code:

http://laws.justice.gc.ca/en/srch.cg...d=203284&exp=7

-Using imitation firearm in commission of offence
-Possession of prohibited weapon, device or ammunition knowing its possession is unauthorized (for those who might wonder of the consequences of such act)


Also note that there is nothing regarding the storage of Replica Firearms, or prohibited devices, and thus you should follow the normal guidelines set for real-steel weapons.
