All a lot of IF and MAYBE in what was said by the CBSA person.

Too much uncertainty.
One more thing; if many start trying this AND get caught, what happens to the status of airsoft for legitimate importers and the rest of us? Do we get dinged with more problems/costs due to the sudden rise of visibility on CBSA's radar?
Until then, get legal stuff in writing guys. That's how you protect yourself from tons of grief.
Although there seems to be an unwritten rule about agreeing with Greylocks, I'm going to have to. He's right.
Don't you find this a little too weird. Orange tips. Trades. These sound to me like American policies. I think everybody here is getting a little too desperate to get a hold of some AEGs. I smell a fish.
