Having several friends in the Surrey RCMP detachment, I've asked each and every one of them and they've all said pretty much the same thing. Except they could only speak on their own personal behalf as mentioned above. If you get a pissed off cop that's having a really bad day, he can basically make you have an equally bad day. Most RCMP or police officers will give the same canned response when talking about airsoft "responsible manner, blah blah blah". This doesn't make it completely clear as to what is okay with them though. Good effort though and I'm sure there is at least one less officer we have to worry about (potentially more if his colleagues looked interested as well).
