The mass majority of players and collectors on this forum fall into that catagory. We don't have any interest in -nor any care for- cheap and clear airsoft guns.

If you want an airsoft gun in Canada that isn't a shitty Aftermath gun, it's going to cost you a minimum of $350. If you want an M14 that isn't a piece of shit, it's going to cost you a minimum of $600.

I'm not saying this to be a douchebag. Those are the facts. Airsoft is an expensive hobby. With VERY few exceptions (those being the one or two shotguns that aren't spawns from the depth of hell), the stuff sold by Wal-Mart and Canadian Tire isn't airsoft. Not even close. There's a reason it's called "soft air" and not airsoft.
QFT, this should be a pop-up message anytime a noob hits the "New Thread" button
