I'll set something up nationally, and the RCMP member can send me an e-mail regarding your verification, and bam - you're on the list.
The verification will mean "he has a PAL and he's 18+".
This way we use PALs, the RCMP gets involved, and now anyone in the country can get verified.
Maybe this sounds dumb, but you if you are all up for it I'll try and get the ball rolling. I think it'd work.
The "reps" become RCMP. Who are everywhere....
What do you think?
I don't think that's a very good idea...
Having to own a FIREARMS
license for airsoft... That would be relating airsoft closer to a firearm... and I WOULD NOT like the restrictions that they have on real firearms to be implemented on my airsoft gun... No full auto, Magazines capped at 5...
Also, When we're playing airsoft if goes against almost everything you're taught... "Do not point the gun at a person, do not run or do 'manouvers'..."
If anything there should be a new class of lisence for "Airsport Guns" both paintball and airsoft alike... It would cutdown on the kids shooting pedestrians with paintball guns... Same with airsoft...
I think the system we have now is perfectly fine.. We just need more than one person that handles all the incoming verifications...
