. . . and the point is that all of the Commonwealth nations are headed that way, Canada included. They're moving forward with more firearms laws in the house right now, and the subject has come up at least three times within the past two weeks in standing committees that I'm aware of.

KD, My comment, about it's Australia not Canada, was directed to the Made Man's stament that "...they are probably 15yr old. Canadian Customs hire people at high school and colleges for summer or something... figures....".

I do however agree with you that "all of the Commonwealth nations are headed that way", unfortunatly.

They're made out of plastic and regurgitated poltry products...I wonder what customs will think when they find a "real" gun...

Those are genuine "E-Bay" guns...the $.01 ones, man those babies cost so little but could cost you up to 10 years in "You vs. Uranus Being Defiled by a 400 pound ogre" Prison.

They were obviously illegal, as they were being "hidden in a shipping container". I mean, if people are going to go to that extent to hide....smuggle, bb guns into a country...

Of course the level of sarcasm on this post depends on whether the container was labeled "TOY GUNS" or something to the effect, or the guns were cleverly shipped in a load of soap.

You can get up to 10 years in jail for importing BB guns...imagine yourself in jail then a guy ask say to you " Im here because i killed 13 people, why you are here ?" and you answer "I imported BB Guns..." This Is so exagerated.

For those of us familiar with what they've really got in their hands there, that image is laughable. They're posing like they won first prize at the special olympics. Maybe someone should try loading that AK up and shooting it before they declare themselves heroes of the nation for stopping what were correctly labelled as toys from entering the country.

You can still get real firearms in Australia, so what difference does it make if you can get airsoft?

On that note, a friend of mine asked me whether or not I would pull out my airsoft gun if I heard someone breaking into my house. I thought about it, but came to the conclusion that without a doubt NO WAY. The illusion of threat it offers is counter-pointed by the reality of provoking a potentially armed person to fire on me. Bottomline, airsofts are realistic looking TOYS that serve no REAL defensive or offensive value at all. I haven't looked into soft-air related injuries/deaths, but I can't imagine its anywhere near the stats of kids who get hit by cars on their bikes, I'm sure even on a per-capita basis.

You can get 10 years in Canada as well for illegaly importing prohibited devises for illegal sale.

We are not heading that way.. we're already there.

granted here those AKs would be considered toys.. not replicas, but the handguns.....
