Can you carry your airsoft around in public without having cops come after you. Well, some parts of asia at least.

There's a huge difference between Hong Kong and China.

And either way, Hong Kong is still in Asia.

LOL that's not even CLOSE to Hong Kong. It's closer to Japan than it is to Hong Kong (based on physical proximity, not cultural, government or societal climate).

That's in Northern China... the distance is roughly further than it is from Toronto to PEI. In relative terms, Japan would be right in between.

I stand corrected, I assumed Hong Kong due to the fact that Airsoft guns are illegal in Mainland China.

Taiwan makes sense. But its still chinese (technically)

Yes Taiwan is technically Chinese, however they do not like to be called Chinese lol. Friend of mine is from Taiwan and he gets really mad when we call him Chinese.

However I thought in some parts of mainland Airsoft is legal, or maybe just some parts they are less strict about it.

Thanh to expand on that, in Canada different Chinese hate each other (probably because of political upbringing in their home country).

Just go to a high school and look at the "cliques", the Hong Kong people are together, Mainlanders are together, and Taiwanese are together, if you're Chinese from Singapore or Vietnam or something (ie. a Chinese expat) you're still shunned by each of the groups and hang out together in your own group.

Then come the Canadian born 1st, 2nd or higher generation like me that can only hang out with other Canadian Chinese and other people who aren't Chinese.

Hell one time my mom was somewhere and this other Chinese lady was lost or something and she refused her help because my mom spoke Cantonese (even after the fact when my mom showed she could speak Mandarin the lady refused her help).

It's illegal all over, although some domestic producers sell to the local market (illegally).

Also, among some expats and rich Chinese, there are players that use guns smuggled in over the Hong Kong / Shenzhen border. (but that's risky or VERY expensive)

I just got back from Shanghai. China has great hash. China is a great place if you have money.

Yes it is, my business partner is in Beijing, but he tells me all the time how he used to have airsoft guns until he got married. His wife never liked it, and when she found it one day, she destroyed it and told him after. Yeah I go to Beijing Every year to visit him.

Just don't carry a gun in full view in the public. You may have some "quiet room" issues if you do. Unless you are in a danger zone. Just don't do it.

Women in China so to say the least are crazy. Then again you get all types all over the world. I think this guy just got the bad lottery number. Just get a new wife. Easy to divorce in China. Women get a big "0" in compensation from divorce. So just get rid of her like yesterdays newspaper.

They're so sheltered - they'll believe whatever you tell them.

Unfortunately, though, they'll also believe whatever anyone else tells them - so, they 'break' easily.

Awe, I just found a dead grasshopper in my blueberries.
