Thanks for the detailed response!
I think that proper Airsoft Organizations would be beneficial for all of us. I understand that some people wouldn't want to pay dues etc but surely we could come up with a tiered membership system to get around that.
I'm originally from Australia and unfortunately Airsoft guns ARE classified as firearms there... therefore they have a proper nation-wide organization that arranges imports of airsoft guns and also organizes the games. Perhaps the Canadian community could take a page out of their book?
I certainly don't see any drwabacks to having properly organized 'clubs'... if some of the better known hosts got in and endorsed the idea then surely we could set something up...
