GB is 2 tone for under 18's and people with "non skirmisher status".

Germany and NZ I believe are the countries with semi only (Australia it's banned).

Or sometimes even 300. There is however guns that have clear or smoked receivers, and they are perfectly legal at lower FPS. Here's the weird one though. You have a gun that shoots 380 FPS, but looks like a real gun, totally legal right? Now, said gun breaks, and now it shoots nothing.

.........Do the math on that one.

Don't confuse the rules for importation with the field safety rules for playing.

Once imported, a gun that was legal for imported can be downgraded and remain legal. More to the point, the reason it is legal for import is because @ 366 fps it's considered capable of causing injury.

These airgun laws are strictly for classification and criminal code use, and have nothing directly to do with importation, though importation laws will meet or exceed that of the criminal code. It "clearly" states that "possession" of an airgun that resembles a real firearm with near precision, and has a muzzle velocity off less than 366 FPS is considered a replica, and that replicas are prohibited. Then technically speaking, downgrading after importation or purchase, would render your airsoft gun prohibited.

A problem occurs when you start to make laws based on potentials
We can't import an airsoft gun over 366fps because we COULD downgrade it to be illegal
Well then you might as well ban umbrellas because you can modify them to be a concealed firearm

When it comes to importing, it is what it is when it hits the border and thats that

If you guys think these laws are confusing and backwards, take a look at the firearms act. Airsoft has NOTHING on the FA.

What he said... I was about to start ranting about how stupid firearm laws are in Canada but there is too much to rant about and I don't have the energy right now...

Still I think (not 100% sure) we have more access to firearms compared to most (definitely not all) modern democracies.

Yup, Canada doesn't like to re-write anything. Cut paste, add, brandade, is the order of the day. I don't understand why remove, re-write, and modernize isn't the bare minimum.
