If you could bring the cost of the guns down to US levels, you would see a HUGE influx of new people to the sport...it is too cost prohibitive at this point due to the (at this point) one or two companies in Canada that control and import them...hence setting the pricing for all of us to enjoy...not!
imagine if you could get a G23F for $175 instead of $375...lots of people would jump on board with Airsoft and we would have dedicated airsoft fields (like we do paintball) all across Canada.
Take everything you listed A through D, apply the section of the paragraph I highlighted.
If you could change the cost of guns
If you could change the legalities of getting guns
If you could change the legalities importing guns
and once again if you could change the cost of guns.
Its all "ifs" my question is how. Its not as if it has not been attempted before. So basically it boils back to my initial statement, our market is to small for the time being, so the argument is essentially moot.
Until Canadian laws in regards to firearms and replica firearms change, our hands are essentially bound on the matter.
