Ahh crap. Yeah, the CX4 carbine, D'OH! Thing is, I was looking at that one myself. They have it at the local surplus store and I was tempted to buy it too. And pic resized too.

So on the topic here, if an airsoft gun is modded to shoot over 500 FPS, does it fall in the same category and make it regulated under the firearms act?

500fps and 5.7joules. And I'd assume so, but don't know for sure. Thus, an airsoft gun with a very short barrel, or one that is select fire, would be a prohibited firearm.

What a load of shit.

Ok, after reading the article I see they want to impose regulations on the carrying of pellet guns. Well, call me crazy but if you're walking around anywhere esspecially in the most urban of area's, is it not reasonable to assume you're up to no good?

So I listened to all the outcry bullshit about this and all the call for bans yet I can not stamp out the question....ok, so they guy goes through a few more regulations, to get his pellet gun, so he can go and ride around in his trick with it and shoot people anyway. What's the point? How's this regulation going to stop a knob-job from knobbing it up?

Why is it so hard to just put airsoft in its own class?

Another thing - if you make pellet guns regulated, and as you say it will make him simply go through a few more regulations, he might as well buy a real firearm. Could get worse!

And yes, airsoft, due to its current state, should have their own class. Just like ammunition.
