I already got a legal opinion on this issue...
which is exactly that.. an opinion.. That opinion supported my statements.
The CCC states clearly that it is not an offense to posses replicas..any replica.. it does not mention ANYTHING about when or how you got them..
Therefore... posession of replica firearms is legal... full stop
the act of transfering replicas has been illegal from 1998..performing an illegal act does not make an object Illegal... that is also from the legal opinion.
the policy statements of the CFC are not law..they do not modify the CCC
I got a legal opinion before I "aquired" my first airsoft gun... if I thought for a second that possession was illegal in any way... I would not have any..
Having a criminal code conviction would end my career..
