About Airsoft Laws

Okay so I read the sticky's in the FAQ section however I'm still a bit unclear...basically I've been looking at this gun:

http://www.redwolfairsoft.com/redwol...l?prodID=25122

and so I'm wondering a few things:

1) Will it be legal for me to buy it online and have it delivered here or will it be confiscated or something

2) If I can't get it is there any way for me to able to, such as like a licensed dealer importing it or something?

Thanks for any help I appreciate it

No it's not legal for you to get this gun. Airsoft guns will most likely be seized at the border. After being seized, I heard that the CBSA will check all your future packages to make sure that you are not importing anymore "airsoft items", basically, u'll be on their radar. You'll need to be Age Verified (assuming you are 18 and above), then you can check out the classified sections. =]

Not a problem, they are about double the price here in Canada, depending on the seller and condition. That is a very nice gun too.

Please don't spread false information. A firearms license doesn't let you import prohibited items.

It's a "Business Firearms License" which lets you import however the government is stingy about giving those out (and they're only given to established companies for movie props, Mil/LE training supply etc.). Not to mention the costs associated with the actual application (and subsequent renewal costs).

If you're 18 in a few weeks then wait, get AV'ed and take a browse through the Classifieds (once AV'ed). Note that the AV process may take a few days or up to a month depending on scheduling and when the next AV batch is going through (it's a "switch" that's turned on by the site admins so it's not automatic, your AV rep has to manually submit the info (and hope that they get the right spelling of the username)). If the last AV batch was yesterday (and your AV rep missed submitting your info) for example it might take a week or a week and a half to get your AV status updated.

It's actually a BFL with an additional special provision that allows you to import movie props.

Either way, when you get age verified, goto the AV retailers thread and talk to illusion or cbcsteve. They might be able to help you on that certain GBB. Not to mention, a couple of these are always kicking around the classifieds.

Well, that used to be the case. But since ASC now makes a killing from retailer income, that's been completely ignored. But if you're not a paying retailer, the mere suggestion of having something for sale will bring the mod hammer down on you. Gotta love how money can change things.

Careful you might get ban for speaking against ASC

I'm pretty sure the income from the retailers isn't THAT substantial...

Well, seeing how many retailers / advertisers are on here and how much they pay (not including the income from 'contributing members' plus google ads), 1 month's worth of revenue can pretty much cover the cost of keeping this site running for a year. I have no issues with ASC or its owners making money. I take issue with ignoring long-established rules that were in place to keep non-AVed members from being able to acquire guns in favour of making money.

Anyway, I guess I derailed the topic. Sorry about that.

We have seen how easy it is to get age verified nowadays. Look at Greg Aush. The guy just used a fake ID!!! Either way, i have complete trust in both members mentioned that they wont sell to an underaged kid. They are upstanding members of the community and have been here for quite a while. And trust is what this community is based on and we all are witness to that.
