Loaded pellet gun leads to takedown in Chilliwack, BC

My local paper just published the following story today.

High-risk takedown precautions went into effect after an off-duty cop saw a what looked like a handgun being loaded in a vehicle.
In the end, no arrests were made, but police seized a type of BB gun, a slingshot, a container of 6 mm pellets from two men travelling in a white Ford Explorer.
The incident started Wednesday afternoon near Vedder and Stephenson Roads and ended at Peach Road.
An off-duty RCMP officer called for assistance after he witnessed one of the two men inserting a magazine into what appeared to be a handgun, reports Const. Steve Hiscoe. The officer followed the suspects and was met at the Peach Road site by other officers.
The incident became a “high-risk” vehicle stop because the occupants were believed to be armed, he explains.
On-duty officers approached the vehicle with their pistols drawn as per their training, says Hiscoe.
“It’s done this way for safety reasons, since in this case there was information to suggest one of the occupants was armed with a loaded firearm,” he says.
Two Chilliwack men were detained, questioned and released by RCMP. The driver was 20 years old and his passenger was 19.
“The question became what were they doing with the loaded soft air gun. A lot of these handguns look like the real thing from a distance or close up,” Hiscoe says. “If it was any other colour but orange, it would be hard to say if it was a toy, or if it was real.”
The seized airsoft gun was an Airstrike 240 Soft Air Gun with an orange magazine, orange grip and see-through components. The term ‘airsoft’ is used interchangeably to refer either to a game played with military style firearms and tactics, or the replica metal or plastic firearms that use 6 mm or 8 mm projectiles.

I actually heard on CBC radio yesterday that the Saskatoon police were warning parents to have their kids to keep toy airguns out of public sight. There was no reported incident that led to the warning, but this type of thing probably doesn't happen out of the blue. They stated that even if it's a kid with a toy gun, their response will always be as if it were a real one.

I HAVE to post this. And the story that goes along with it of cource.



Quote:
I was behind a shed of some sort at the beginning of the game... when it started I peaked out and raised my rifle to shoot...
The battery went bad again, I decocked it (ICS) and tried again, it would not turn over. I set the gun against a tree and take out a clear springer, the Walmart kind, then I look out again... I see the guy I was shooting at was hit.
I slowly peak out from behind the shed and see the remaining guy left, with a TM AK behind a tree not far away, I was in his sites.
After going around the shed to try and find a good place, I see a small plastic box type thing, maybe a breaker box... it was about 3 feet tall and 2.5 feet wide... but it was between the him and me.
I slowly crept towards it, knowing well that he knew where I was.
Ping Ping! Shots bounced off the shed and I ducked my head, moving slowly towards it, then as I come nearer... he moves to the left and I move to the right to again block his shot. Then as I approch the box it shakes and I hit the ground as a rain of fire falls apon it.
It stopped, I popped my head up and shot, he was no more than 25 feet from me, I missed. I ducked down again after shots rang out.
It stopped again and I stuck my gun up, 'Pop!'

He called his hit and I stood... I had beaten him... though I was using a Walmart springer and only had 5 shots, I took two and hit him... he was standing there shocked, as was the other that had went down before. He had an TM AEG, I a Daisy springer, the bastard child of Crosman, yet I had won....

So let me get this straight. Soft-air and airsoft are used interchangably...? One word ***Research*** what you're going to print out.
