Hello, everyone!

Well, first I'll introduce myself.

My name is Enrico and I'm Brazilian, I'm from S„o Paulo. My nick is Tank cause I'm fat hahaha. In September (2014) I'll move to Toronto to study and work and I love airsoft, but here in Brazil, Airsoft is a very expensive and controlled sport, wich means that not everyone can play it, only if you have lots of money.

I need some help in several questions about Airsoft in Canada..

I read in a lot of websites that Airsoft in Canada has a restriction about the FPS's of the guns but, seeing on online stores (American stores) like Evike, not every gun reaches the legal FPS range of the Canadian restrictions, at least most of the pistols don't. How it works?!

Where to buy?! Can you guys post here or PM me some websites where I can buy or walk-in stores in Toronto?! At least for me to have an idea about prices and stuff like that. I don't wanna buy guns that will bring me problems later like being an illegal gun. If I wanna play, I'll play like any other person, doing the right thing.

Do I need any document or registration to play Airsoft?! I know that a born Canadian don't need it, but as a Brazilian, I'll need something like that?!

Local Teams. Can you guys tell me teams in Toronto or Events wich I can go to meet people that play, know more players and introduce myself in the community?!

Airsoft guns storage, do I need anything like a Gun Safe to storage airsoft guns in my apartment?!

I think that is all for now.

Thanks a lot guys for any reply and hope to see you all soon!!

P.S.: Sorry if my english failed in any point.

We cannot link you to retailers where you can buy guns until you meet with an age verifier,
The FPS is purely for importation each field sets its limits differently.
You do not need a gun safe for storage a simple gun bag will suffice,
You do not need any documentation to play other then some form of ID stating your name and date of birth.

Thanks, Ritz!

Well, how can I prove my age?!

My birth date is June, 4, 1993, but I know that only saying this doesn't prove anything.. hahahaha

You have to meet with an age verifier and provide a peice of government issue ID that states your name, age, date of birth and has a photo of you.
A passport will work

Canada isn't known for having "cheap" airsoft, especially compared to the US or Hong Kong, but it's affordable to our market. I'm unaware of the comparison to Brazil though. I'm sure you'll do fine, lots of people will be willing to help you once you're age verified.

I'd argue that these days. While still more expensive, it's not nearly as bad as it used to be.

There have been a couple times I've seen guns go on par with the U.S.
