Of note

In several spots the judge indicated that as far as he could tell this was "the first" such case.
where someone was prosecuted for the illegal import and sale of airsoft guns.

This judgment should serve to reduce the "grey area" perception of the legal status of AS guns.

Also of note.. was it was very clear that this particular judge was well aware of what "airsoft" was .. and what they are typically used for.

It seemed to me that if he could have shown where all the guns and ended up and proven that they were all used to participate in Games it may have mitigated the sentence.

Anyway.. VERY interesting
