We have. Many stores have been raided/shut down. Why do you think there is only 2 retailers in Canada, who have limited stock available?

If the gun resembles a real gun in size and color it is concidered a replica. The clear soft guns may look like a real gun but being made of clear plastic it's not concidered as a replica. I had a conversation with a ploice officer from Oshawa reguarding non guns(replicas) and he told me that it wasn't an illegal item unless it was used in the commision of a crime yet firearms canada says different. So I guess it is best to go by firearms canada

The cop on the street is the one you need to be mindful of. A bureaucratic-pencil-pusher in Ottawa is the last guy that concerns me in the chain of enforcement hierarchy. They only consult the cubicle-rats when they have no idea, but odds are they do already.

I guess it comes down to the opinion of the officer at the time.

I was speaking of the Canadian state as a whole, not just what the CBSA has done. The CBSA is a slap on a wrist compared to how far the current laws allow the government to prosecute imitation firearms owners if they wanted to.

You're talking about the RCMP then. OK, but that's exactly what I meant.

Not exactly. The CBSA's efforts in coming after airsoft retailers has been an incomplete effort in the bigger picture. The stores that were raided were all in the west, while importation across Canada were further restricted, but not uniformly so. They've really inconvinenced airsoft, but stopped well short of killing it.

However, CSBA could've (with the blessing of the law) hit every store in Canada that carried imitation firearms (airsoft or not), and completely stopped legal importation all together. They haven't. The police could've gone and setup a sting here at ASC for illegal trafficking and confiscated every Crosman they can find, they haven't. This is because both agencies have their own internal policy how to interpret and execute parts of CCC and CFA sections they're responsible for at this time. If the federal government choose to realign the policy of its subordinate agencies to one of the strictest interpretation of the law, that'd be what I mean by crackdown. Both the CBSA and the police with the blessing of the government coming to shutdown the sport, not just to prosecute a few retailers.

The CSBA does not have the authority to enforce ANY law or regulation beyond that relating to import and export. If anything, the RCMP would have to raid retailers violating any other law.

The CSBA could stop the importation of imitation firearms, but cant do anything about it once it crosses the border and is in the hands of the citizen.

DUDE, the CBSA does NOT do that. It's the RCMP. You don't seem to get that.
