I think these are 2 complete different articles we are tackling here.
1. Legality of importing (airsoft and restricted items)
2. Legality of owning airsoft (and obvious to use in designated area)
The more important of the two we perceive today is obviously #2 to preserve our game. The importing issue can be dealt with later.
As long as I can still own my airsoft and use them at games, I'll be happy. And as long as the restricted number of dealer can still import, I'm cool with that. If we can successfully lobby airsoft with PAL, then I'm all for it.
