NEED HELP! Japan says gun is illegal????
Ok so my gun (planet eclipse etha) is sitting at customs in Tokyo and they won't release it to me. They say that the joules rating is to high and because of that it's illegal. 3 joules is the max aloud for a paintball gun is what they are trying to tell me. Now from my research any paintball gun that shoots a .68 is rated at about 13 joules. I play paintball on base using a friends gun, I know tons of people with guns, I know tons of people that have ordered them through the mail and outdoor rec sells them on base. Plus the base doesn't even consider a paintball gun a weapon. If everyone else has them and they even sell them on base then wtf is the deal? This has really pissed me off because I'm having to jump through hoops just to get my gun. I'm posting on here to see if anyone in Japan or use to be in Japan that may have any info that might help me. Right now the only option I have is to send it back to the states, which I don't want to do.
