No need to re-invent the wheel or just talk about organizing.
It is already in place.
For $45 we can join the Canadian Shooting Sports Association.
They are the voice of the sport shooter and firearms enthusiast in Canada.
They already have 15,000 members and are organized. These people are Canadians and have the same interests and concerns as the people in the airsoft community.
How many members are there in Airsoft Canada community?
If enough members join, the Airsoft community would have a responsible advocate.
Last time I checked, there was a large chunk of firearm owners who hated airsoft/airsoft owners. (just like by a similar token a lot of hunters hate "black rifle" owners, etc)
Until I see explicit support for airsoft I really don't think joining that would help anything.
