The Ideal solution for all this of course, would be if the government could be convinced that there is nothing inherently "wrong" with airsoft guns, and grant them their own section under the Firearms act that defines exactly what an airsoft gun is, and allows their import, purchase and sale. Of course, there would have to be some restrictions to appease the gun control nuts, like only being able to buy them if you are over 18. It would also be nice if they recognized Airsoft as a sport, like paint ball. That would make things so much simpler, wouldn't it?
Of course, trying to get the government to do anything sensible is like banging your head on a brick wall , isn't it? lol
