basically, airsoft in principle is legal; that is guns that shoot 500fps or less and 5.7J of muzzle energy or less. what makes the sport illegal is that our guns are replicas of real firearms in that they are 1:1 scale models of firearms that already do exist. so while it is not illegal to to play airsoft, or own airsoft, it is illegal to import it. that being said, if you shoot someone with an airsoft gun (even a clearsoft) you will be tried as it it were a real gun. i have read this forum AND the canadian laws referring to this subject specifically.
