Hello all,

This mainly has an effect on those of us that might be in California... for now. California bill SB1315 has passed our state assembly and is on the governors desk. The governor has 9 days left to sign the bill into law. If signed into law SB1315 will allow the county of Los Angeles to regulate the manufacture, sale, import and posession of "imitaiton firearms" as defined by: (1) The device is so substantially similar in coloration and overall appearance to an existing firearm as to lead a reasonable person to perceive that the device is a firearm. (2) The device expels a projectile that is no more than 16 millimeters in diameter.

Here are some links:

Local News:

Although this may not affect those of you outside of the LA area right now (I am not in the LA area) it will, especially for those of you in the US in general. If LA is allowed to stop airsoft this will effect all of us. Here is a short list of some of the LA based airsoft companies you may recognize:

Echo1/Socom Gear
JAG Precision Importers
Airsoft GI

Not to mention the players, small businesses and events (i.e. Operation Lion Claw) that are all based out of the LA area. This bill has the potential to not only destroy airsoft in California, but to destory our entire sport and could be the biggest turn since the demise of classic airsoft.

So if you are on the west coast, please take the time to write or call, or both!
