I applaud your efforts, but however I really like the quality of players we have in Canada. If we legalize airsoft, and made it cheap, I fear we would lose that. Just anyone (criminals, somehow minors will get their hands on them) would go into airsoft. While the people who pay an extra $100 per gun, have a lot more commitment. Just in my opinion

Also about registering Airsoft, I don't think that would happen, since there aren't serial numbers on them, if we were to put make and model, that also woulnt work as people mod their guns soo many times. It would just have to be a license for an individal to own airsoft. If thats the case then we couldnt have people just try out airsoft because themself wouldnt have the license.

Totally agree. That's what I was saying earlier about a barrier to entry being a good thing. Make it cheap and easy to get to first base (intro course), but harder / time consuming and more expensive to get to second base. A license fee could be a bit expensive the first year, then cheaper to renew. I'm a dragon boat captain and coach and you can see a big difference in the attitudes between committed people (who pay $300/yr and show up for 7 am Saturday morning workouts), and those playing around (who don't bother to show up 1/2 the time). The point isn't to squeeze people for money, it's to keep the participant quality high.

Ugh, why do people insist turning a donation question into a discussion on why they love airsoft being illegal? No amount of entry barrier is worth being illegal. If you've got a problem with the crowd, improve the crowd or find a new crowd. Leaving an activity illegal because you think it'll improve the crowd makes no sense.

I'm getting this thread locked, it's served its purpose.

I think it's because your question is so questionable...how much would I "donate" to an unnamed solution? Somewhere between $5 and $5000. Seems like most people here just took your question seriously.
