Question Few Questions here

I may be in the wrong place, but please forgive me, I'm new to forums.
My mom agreed to buy a UTG M324 for me, since i'm not 18 yet. But question is : Where? I only found US only websites, so if someone knows, please say.

Ah, and She also bought me a Walmart Colt MkIV Duty kit wich is clear, if i paint the guns black, (leaving the Orange tip) Would they be considered like ''Real'' Airsoft? (since i read the topic about Canadian Tire Guns)

Again i have another Question, Is it illegal to play airsoft with Fully colored guns on a Private land (Ours ! And its Really Huge)? I mean, theres a part of it on the side of a public road, so if the police see us, will they arrest us?

Sincerly, have a nice day everybody who will read this.

P.S. Forgive my english, I'm from Québec

Under 18, nowhere. The Canadian airsoft community tries very hard to regulate the sale of airsoft guns to those who are 18 years and older. You will not find help on this board on how to obtain one otherwise.

No. Guns you get at Walmart are VERY far from real airsoft in terms of quality and performance.

Illegal, no. Bad idea? Probably. The cops will most likely sieze your guns at the least... at the most charge you with posession of a prohibited device.

not to mention that any airsoft gun you try to order from outside of canada has the very high possibility of being seized and destroyed and you will not get your money back and your house will be blacklisted. That means that ANY mail coming to your house will be opened and searched

see this is something that has always confused me. if i get pulled over for speeding on my way to an airsoft game. and the police happens to see the gun cases or inquire or anything, what is to stop him from taking my guns away and arresting me for possession of a prohibited device? i thought airsoft was legal to own because it wasn't considered a replica or a pellet gun, but just not 100% safe to import as most CBSA agents would just consider it a pellet gun.

reasonable search and seizure laws.


They stop you from speeding they can't demand to search your car for drugs unless you have bongs everywhere ie probably suspicion of commiting a crime.

As long as you dont have a gun sitting in the back, or as long as you dont have a case shaped as a gun they can't seize it... it could be anyting a trombone etc.

that and they can't make you pop the trunk

Si tu essaye d'importer des guns des États, 99% de chances qu'ils soient confisqués. en plus tu devrait commencer avec un AEG, pas mal plus facile qu'un BA pour débuter. Au canada, pas mal toutes les vente de airsoft se font sur ASC (on applique la règle du 18 ans et plus pour acheter sur ASC) , et a moins d'avoir 18 ans ou plus tu ne pourra pas participer a une game officielle.

Ah, and She also bought me a Walmart Colt MkIV Duty kit wich is clear, if i paint the guns black, (leaving the Orange tip) Would they be considered like ''Real'' Airsoft? (since i read the topic about Canadian Tire Guns)

Au Canada, tu n'as pas besoin de Orange tip sur ton gun, c'est au États seulement. Pour le considérer comme un vrai airsoft, si tu parle en terme de qualité, même peint, il sera pas vraiment plus efficace

Again i have another Question, Is it illegal to play airsoft with Fully colored guns on a Private land (Ours ! And its Really Huge)? I mean, theres a part of it on the side of a public road, so if the police see us, will they arrest us?

En règle générale, si ça ressemble a une vraie arme, c'est considéré comme une vrai arme par la police, et de ce fait il peuvent appliquer toutes les articles du code criminel qui s'appliquent a une arme...( Parce que c'est une réplique d'une vrai arme). En plus, il se peut très bien qu'un passant dans la rue appelle la police parce qu'il croit que c'est une vraie arme.

Sincerly, have a nice day everybody who will read this.

P.S. Forgive my english, I'm from Québec
vu que t'es de Québec, je vais te répondre en français. L'option la plus facile est vraiment d,attendre a 18 ans, te faire vérifier pour l'âge et d'acheter ici. Sinon tu t'expose a plus de risque que a ne va te rapporter de fun...

IMO, only the CSBA enforce the prohibited device/replica thing. To the police, it's only if you commit an offence with the said guns that they will enforce the law to it's full extend.

There is nothing illegal about transporting an airsoft gun in a locked gun case in your car. Quite simply, don't give them a cause to search (or even pull you over), and you won't have an issue. Most cops won't bother with it unless you're doing something stupid. In that case they won't differentiate between a replica and a real firearm.

Thank you everyone who answered me, You are right , I'm not eighteen so I can't play it yet in some real events. But I love target shooting with the guns I currently have, so I wanted a Sniper Rifle

If my mom create a account and go verify her age, will she be able to buy guns for me? (they will belong to her, i will use them under her supervision)

I don't know how old you are you sound like you're 12 or 14.

Attitude and maturity are a big part of this sport, not just shooting. Do yourself a favor and exercise some patience, it'll be more beneficial for you in more than just this game. Getting your mom to buy things for you is irresponsible for her and you. No matter what you or her say, kids are still kids.

Seriously though. Wait till your 18 or play paint ball in the meantime and build up a good sense of sportsmanship teamwork and then switch over, thats what I did. You'll have more appreciation for the teamwork and tactics required for this sport after coming from the world of paint ball which is largely unorganized

At any rate for the sake of advice,

I wouldn't recommend getting a sniper rifle as your first airsoft gun. They're a bit temperamental and your style of play as a sniper/sharpshooter ist very diffrent from an assulter or rifleman.

Alot of people reccommend getting something basic with alot of options as your first. an AEG like a Mp5 or your standard Armalite is probably the best newbie rifle.

But do your home work and wait to get into this sport after you learn more about it. You can get through an entire game, not fire a shot and still win. There's a hell of a lot more to this game than guns and shooting.

With cheaper guns you're likely to lose a lot more than the cost of a magazine or two.
my first AEG was used and cost $200. Since then I've dumped another $450ish upgrading it. My second AEG was also used but cost $500 plus another $400ish in upgrades, plus mags.

I'm seconding what kalnaren said, I bought my Marzen L96A1 for $600 broken and spend somewhere in the area of $300 bringing it back from the dead and I just dumped another $150 in upgrades into it. You can ask people on the teams I play on too, I'm constantly fixing the thing too.

Sharpshooter, sorry for the confusion, but it is not against ASC policy for your mom to get Age Verified in order to purchase an airsoft gun, provided that it is understood (apparently, it is) that it belongs to her and your use of it must be strictly supervised by her. The local AV rep you contact will of course, have the final say as to whether your mother will be verified after meeting her.

We also insist that you do not have access to her ASC account password or post from her ASC account.
