Yes but at least if they were some how able to get parts in they could maintain there guns. however for those just getting into the sport they will have no chance at all of getting a gun.

Always guns for sale in the classifieds.

You Guys make me Tired

Here we go....

There is no need for a "ban on Airsoft" it is already illegal for anyone to sell replica guns to individuals...

Technically it is already banned... so you can stop worrying about a ban... as it is pointless to worry about something that has aleady happened... 9 years ago.

The CFO, CBSA and law enforcement is stepping up enforcement on the proliferation of Replicas... hence the customs troubles... and the recent charges in the GTA against some small time unlicensed re-sellers.. which has precipitated most of the retailers to significantly curtail their imports... or stop importing alltogether.

I know for a fact that the CFO has orders to "clamp down on replicas" as people I know who are working on getting a props license.. have been told this from the CFO directly.

So... what does this mean... yeah.. it will be more difficult to get guns for the foreseeable future... and Yeah that means that prices will go up...and that means that this hobby will be out of reach for a lot of people who may be interested... But if you really want in... you will pony up the cash and the time to make it happen.

Baha, beer out the nose for that one....guys, chill....as long as there are stupid fucking morons alive and breading on this planet, we'll have issues with idiotic things being done. So sit back, and just laugh it off. Brain is right, since 1998 airsoft was banned, so the situation may only change slightly, supply will tighten but thats probably all.

I'm from guelph, I know 3 police officers here, they said that most of this started when the walmart opened, befor that it was pellet guns from canadian tire. and the fact that no one has been shot is amazing since most of our police force are cowbows.

Seriously folks how many times is this thread gonna be started? How many times are we going to write the same thing? How many times are we going to go over this? My god the news, the papers, the police and all the other incedents that happen show up here on the boards and the same conversation starts all over again. Transportation is the key. Be smart, be responsible. As to AEG and GBB' there will be a shortage some time in the future but you'll still be able to get parts and build your own.

I know that all the Age-verified members will say well get age verified and buy off the classifieds, but guns only last so long and im sure if there is a ban on airsoft guns it will be extremly hard to get parts across the boarder too.
They are enforcing 18+, as they should. They are enforcing importation laws, as they should. They are enforcing municipal bylaws, as they should.

Retards are being caught, and that's fine.

You should wait until you are 18. You do agree that the laws should be respected?

Or is this because your parents read those news and told you 'no'?

It's not illegal to own one if you are over 18, and it's not illegal to import one IF you have the right permits.

Again, the folks bitching either are under 18, have no right to import, or are plain un-informed.

I think it's mostly under-18 who'se parents finally read some facts and said 'no' to their kids.

funny how the media systematically acts like a large fan in which is thrown an also large bucket of sh!t.

funny how we also routinely appreciate how everything this fan swallows is instantly turned into brainwashy fearmongering garbage.

OK, not to change the topic at hand, but I've lived in Guelph for 20 years, and I know, and have known, many of the Guelph police over the years (though not too many of the new ones). It's more than a small exaggeration to say that Guelph police are "cowboys"... though I have heard some negative depictions of the Guelph police, I can't remember having ever heard of the police using excessive force, especially not with anything more lethal than a taser...

No, it's because us responsible minors don't want asshats like the aforementioned kid ruining it for the rest of us.

I really hope this doesn't go through. If it happens somewhere, the soccer moms will utilize this and try to push it through everywhere.
