If worst comes to worst, if you're ever in Vancouver there are some active AV reps there. For sure there's an active AV rep in Richmond. Ferry from Nanimo to Horseshoe bay then take bus to Lonsdale Quay transfer to seabus and go to Vancouver Waterfront. From there just take RAV line to Richmond.
While you're in Richmond, it might do you some good to oogle the cool stuff at the Airsoft Gear
store (located about 3 or 4 blocks away from the RAV line station). Website may still be under construction and not 100% fully functional. There is a lot of stuff in their retail storefront.
