both right and wrong.
under the Criminal code.. wrong... either exceed the FPS OR exceed the energy, then firearm (restricted)
under the Firearms Act, both FPS AND energy need to be exceeded then its a firearm

That is why markers can be imported cuz their firearms under the Criminal Code (but not a firearm under the Firearms Act) so they can't be replicas....

If airsoft guns can shoot high FPS (say like pellet guns) but still have low energy, then its a firearm under the Criminal Code, but not a firearm under the Firearms Act... this will put them in the same category as pellet guns, and may likely remove the classification of replicas....
