Since this is in the news section and that the first post appear on the main page, wouldn't it be a good thing to correct the mistakes in it because it doesn't seem serious at all (no offences intended).

Oh ok, it's somewhat clear now.

So basically, their importing license isn't "clear" about whether they can sell airsoft to general public, and CBSA just felt like screwing over XP kinda claiming selling to general public is illegal???

From the sound of it, I'm guessing this isn't the first time this type of raid has happened? Do they usually revoke their import license for such "offence"?

Anyone ever wonder why it's commonly referred to as the "Left Coast"? :lol:

Well, that's 6 retailers I know in the last 6 months that have been bent over by the feds. Four of them have not really returned and probably never will.

It's a wake-up call folks for those who think that airsoft is not in a precarious legal position. The fact that there is no "black-letter" law regarding them should in no way allow you to believe they are perfectly legal.

If the CBSA, or Justice want to go after you, there will always be a way.

Capone got nailed for income tax evesion, Gotti got nailed for jury tampering.

Just keep that in mind when you travel to a game with your Marui AEG plainly visible in it's original box. A little off-topic, but a reminder to those who've become complacent.

I hope all works out for Peter and Will. They will be missed during their "vacation" from airsoft.

Wow... I was wondering when the yearly 'Lets stir up a shitstorm in the Airsoft community' event was going to happen.

Now I can get some sleep... I was getting worried there for a second.

Anyone want to start a "Airsoft is banned in Canada" thread???? Common! It'll be fun!

wow. so this stuff happens regularly? like annually? i hope they get their stuff back. so this only affects Vancouver area office/stores right? and not affecting online stores (like they don't have a store front / showroom) if there is any in Vancouver.

I doubt it will be returned as mcguyver said four bussiness out of bissness, and yes they is bullying us BCer 4 now, the other provinces will have their turn eventually. (probably after BC puts a general ban on butterknives)
