I'd be a lot more concerned about the seemingly inevitable stop of all airsoft gun imports into Canada and the potential for zero airsoft population growth. We'll have far more trouble with retention if the community seems no longer viable, vibrant, etc.
And I really don't know what this complain about "new guys who want to be spoonfed" and the downward spiral of ASC is about. The whole ASC mentality is devoted to making sure those who want to be spoonfed never reach the "new player" stage. Those who can't quickly transition from asking to self-sufficiency don't get into the sport due to their own cluelessness and are never members of the community. They're the same annoying percentage of visitors we get every year asking the same annoying questions.
