I would say Canadian buyers are just victims of supply and demand.
In theory and in practice things do go by that way.
But we are not victims of supply and demand
. We are victims of the grey side of the law that has put Airsoft under Firearm Replicas.
If anything its not the market should open up. It can't with current state of the law. I remember a vet on this forum once said that the laws not going to change anytime soon and if it did it was just be more restrictions.
It seems its easier to put restrictions than re-write a law
