Sigh of relief.

I finally got to speak with an RCMP officer about the Beretta Elite I ordered. The officer reviewed the Firearms Act and agreed it was unclear. We discussed the issues at length and in the end, I was told there is no concern re: criminal code and as long as I use the gun responsibly, there's no problem with me possesing and using the pistol.

I believe that the officer was comfortable with me because I took the time to investigate the issue, openly express my concern, and demonstrate that I am responsible and not attempting to hide anything.

This is key. I think that as long as we can all demonstrate responsibility, ownership and use of airsoft guns will be a non-issue.

It was the CBSA that carried out that raid, as the items raided were reputed to have been illegally imported. They may involve the RCMP if they need muscle, but they are within thier jurisdiction to seize evidence of illegal importation of prohibited devices.

You haven't been here long enough Styrak to know all that went down. This has happened before and will happen again.

Thats what 99% of us do. But once in awhile a jackass/dumbass/shithead will do something really stupid with a airsoft/clearsoft gun and we all take the hit. Is that fair? No. But life isn't fair...

I remeber going out to Vancouver to christmas a few years ago, and I decided to hit up a few of the shops I knew that carried airsoft, and to my surprise, they were either out of stock or closed down. I spoke to one gentlemen, the clerk behind the counter at the one army surplus store in Vancouver, I cant remeber the name of it, but its the one Betweek Clark and Comercial drive on broadway. He had stated that the RCMP had raided many of the retailers in town that carried airsoft. Now he didnt state that the CBSA was envolved but I could really see them backing something like that.

I took a trip to Vancouver like.. a year ago, I visited a camoflague clothing shop.. I noticed that they had M4's hanging on the wall... So I assumed they were airsoft and asked the sales person behind the counter... I got a long schpeal on how they got raided and those AEG's are only Wall hanger and not functional anymore and blah blah blah...
