Most of the guys I played with tend to avoid Pmall for our airsoft needs, they tend to be overpriced, quite often don't know their product or knowledge to repair customers gun and some just flat out questionable business practice to rip you off. With more available option online and big distributors in the GTA I often wonder why these guys still exist and still practice the business model that exist in the late 80's where there was no Toronto airsoft or Mach1. So buyer beware do your research!

Bottom line: I want my purchase experience to be an enjoyable one, so I won't take any shit from any shops. On the other hand, I also pay my respect to them even though they may not have what I want. The end results: My visits and purchase are always pleasant.
Wildcard, I'm going to have to side with SWAT on this, I used to like Toronto Airsoft and Mach1 is pretty good but does tend to have high prices.
There are many reasons I (to) go to Pmall, Airsoft is usually not one of them.
When I decide to buy a new gun, I check all of the retailers, even the ones in Pmall and the cost of importing one myself, whoever has the best deal, I get it from them. I've done a lot of business with Toronto Airsoft in the past, they've been slipping.
Toronto Airsoft, needs to get their shit together, their in store customer service has become complete shit, I've been there many times in the past with my brother and a couple of his friends, so, when I learned one of his buddies is looking to get a side arm, I sent them there. Big mistake. They left without a pistol because the individual behind the counter was rude as all hell, refused to let them handle anything before purchase and was observed to have no idea what the fuck he was talking about. That's when they could get his attention, which was shortly lived as he'd just wander off in the middle of dealing with them. I can't say much for their stock either, outside of WE, most of it is complete crap. They're still selling Cansoft pistols as well, which, I can't understand how they manage to sell when proper coloured pistols are readily available.
About the only time I'll say TA is any good, is if it's Frank himself in store dealing with you.
