And now im about to go "off topic" on my own post...lol
If indeed there are a handful of airsoft guns out there that fall into the BB/air gun (not Airsoft or replica) category because of their FPS rating, why is it that we (the Canadian Airsoft community) are not patishioning (wrong spelling) the Airsoft manufacturers (KSC, Maruzen...etc) to develop or upgrade a class of gun for the Canadian market that sidesteps the laws...ie, markings on the boxes that clearly state the FPS rating and classification as a "airgun".
Maybee im off my rocker on this one, but.......
the only ones that are called bb guns and dont require any special documentation to bring in are the canadian tire like clearsoft guns. there has been some success stories of clearsoft making it accross the border when imported privately. the rest are airsoft guns (TM, KSC, CA etc) and they do require a lot of work and legal processes to obtain them. btw: fps, mostly, has nothing to do with importation.

Canada itself is to small of an airsoft market for them to invest any interest in really.
i agree too if you want to do this proceed with caution and dont expect any good outcomes.
