I would say take it more as an inner reflection of one's value on legalizing airsoft.

To put an actual figure on it, put it this way:

If the government actually came out and said something like, "Okay, we'll allow import and possession, and everything will be dandy, BUT you need to have a license and pay an annual registration fee." And say that turned out to be $200/yr for the license (we're a small group so the administrative overhead for the license would be higher) and say $25/gun/yr... that's well over $500/yr in my case, but I'd be willing to pay it, because it's guaranteed I'd be in the clear and on the up and up all around.

If, OTOH, some politician (deputy) who was sympathetic to airsoft and wanted to raise money for his campaign, and he'd TRY to bring the issue up with his party, blah blah blah [LOL, electoral promise much?] I'd maybe throw $10 his way if I believed his party had a good chance of forming a majority AND that the party in question had a generally pro-gun ownership outlook (i.e., not Bloc, not Liberal and not NDP)

I'd throw in as much as I could afford...it's not much, but a couple hundred at least.

And is this a good time for me to start looking into politics/us starting to convince noobs that their best bet for change is to get into the political arena?

But that would never work...this is a sport based on honesty and integrity...terms mutually exclusive with Politics

Worst case, only $100. If it came down to it I could put up to $500 maybe. It would have to be a damn good cause.

100 $ for me as well if this plan go well and I can stay here a few more year.

500 $ donate if I can stay here but if not, there is no reason for me to donate even 1 cent.

I'd easily put $100 up. Maybe more, like others have said, it depends on how likely I think it will succeed. If you want to start contacting lawyers and political lobbyists and try to get a plan together go ahead. If you post a comprihensive plan with some concrete numbers, you'd probably get a much more positive response.

Depends on what it's used for and what the tactic we're using and what we're trying to achieve.

Definitely a couple bucks up to maybe $50 (Sorry I'm a poor university student) .

I'd quite willingly pay that fee

I'd be willing to throw in a hundred or two as long as it has a chance of success.

Expensive? You'd better believe it!! Just look at what this guy's going through to fight C-68 (Firearms Act). Upwards of 300,000 "spring rolls" so far... http://www.brucemontague.ca/html/0152.html
