Is anyone else's BS detector going off here? This sounds like a new twist on the
"(_________________) is going to Florida. Can I bring one of these guns back to Canada." threads.
I would think an Airsoft retailer would be a little familiar with ITAR. This smells like an underage person fishing for answers, and trying to avoid the wrath of the ASC flamethrower brigade.

Cmar.. Can you post the name of your retail establishment? Do you have a website? And is there a way to contact the store?

Thanks TokyoSeven, Alrighty then. Just a very strange thread. And I am in an overly suspicious mood. LOL. Please accept my apology OP.
That is a level of customer service I am very unfamiliar with. It would be nice to see more of.
Can we still get the name of your shop? I am sure with the level of service you provide, you will attract some customers here at ASC.

Isn't ITAR an export thing. A but of a nitpick, but relevant.

Restricted export from the US, not so much a restricted import to Canada. (ITAR in general, not airsoft).

+1

always good to see retailers that think about their customers rather than only thinking about their bank account.

we should have more shop like yours!

It should be made clear that issue is entirely with importation and the CBSA. The actual possesion of airsoft has no legally mandated rules (such as you have in the US with the orange tips).

There are no laws regarding age limits, the appearance of gun (transparency and otherwise, etc.) if it is actually in the country. What others have said is right however, and that most airsoft clubs and fields will have an age limit of 18+ but there are exceptions. There are some facilities that will allow minors with parental consent etc. In my city, there's a laser arena that has airsoft nights most weekdays and 10-14 year old kids (the same ages you would find at laser games) are allowed to play airsoft. You could forward that info to your customers as well but I'm not sure about in Montreal. Do warn them that if they are really interested in airsoft that the cost iwould likely be higher to play in Canada as guns are typically more expensive (up to double the cost) and there are few physical stores.

But good on you for dealing with your customers in such a straightforward manner and preventing them from losing any money in the case of confiscation. Thank-you for taking the time to register on this forum and discussing this.
