Due to the nature of airsoft in Canada the only actual airsoft guns available through online retailers are those with clear bodies or partial clear bodies. Once your age verification has been completed and gone through you will be granted access to this websites buy and sell area where you can find many listings for quality non clear airsoft guns.

However, since your IP address shows that you are not even located in Canada, it would not be worth it for you to gain this websites age verification.

Just a note, Airsoft and BB guns aren't exactly the same thing.

Airsoft (TM, JG, G&G, G&P, KSC, etc.) shoots 6mm plastic BB's like what you're thinking of, whereas BB guns (Daisy, Hammerli, Air Force, Gamo, Remington etc.) usually shoot either .177 pellets or copper BB balls.

I'm not trying to be an asshole just trying to explain the difference so that it's perfectly clear what you mean if you were to ask this question in a different context (eg. you're in a store and the sales rep gets confused but theres a higher chance they purposely give you the wrong information so that they make a sale).

PS: Yes you can get non clear BB guns from gun shops, hunting/fishing/outdoor shops or Canadian tire. However those same shops only carry clear Airsoft. Pretty stupid right? I know.... It's been discussed over and over to death.

well, usually I call airsoft BB guns, and airguns pellet guns
ehh, I thought that was the unwritten standard


-edit; hence why we buyBB's for our airsoft guns and pellets for airguns - so on and so forth, etc. etc.

Damn I guess I brought up confusion... Well TBH it's all pedantics, I just use that kind of convention for calling things BB/pellet/air guns or Airsoft. A note though, there are some "Pellet guns" that do fire copper BB's (not to mention the Red Ryder "BB" gun too).

How many times has anyone brought up the topic of airsoft and said "BB gun" and people instinctively picked up on the context (that you meant airsoft and not a pellet or metal BB gun)? Also Jborough, if you've ever been to the PNE you should know that BB gun game with the metal balls and the rigged rifles.

OP: Contact the fine people over at EAR (Edmonton Airsoft Regiment). I believe one of the AV reps is doing a mass AV night at Capital Airsoft's brick and mortar store sometime soon.
