Legros, Keep it up, Enjoy your vacation as you deserve every minute of it. Youll be getting some business from me in the near future.

As for the personal issues with other people, keep them off this thread. This page is for Shootsoft Reviews only. If you had an issue with Legros skippy, file ONE (1) Single grievance instead of dragging it out for 2-3 pages. If you continue to have Disputes with him deal with it Via PMs or dont do business with him. But seeing how you got your money back, I dont see why this needs to go on any further.

What "old days" are these, last year?

I'll say this again for all the new guys who joined in the last 2 years, 20 days is a long time compared to what we used to deal with. You used to be able to go to 5-10 retailers, compare prices, buy whatever gun you could imagine and have it in your hands inside of a week, most of the time. Your only choice was who to buy it from. Now, you are forced to buy whatever you can find in-stock, wait whatever time frame the "retailer" dictates, or go in the back with a hammer and make your own gun.

I think it's time for everyone to settle the fuck down. Not one of you whiners has any idea what it's like to try to import these things in today's environment, and most guys willing to risk it do it more for the love of the game than the profit, I promise you that. If you have a problem, take it to fucking PM. If it doesn't get resolved, go to an admin and start a trade dispute. It's pretty childish airing dirty laundry here, and I hope this sort of behaviour doesn't make it's way onto the field, which is where airsoft belongs.

I won't defend someone else's business practices, but it seems we all want what we want when we want it how we want it for the price we want it. Importing and distributing airsoft does not and can not follow this, it isn't legal and tolerated by the authorities. Let's get this through your heads so you can greatly lower your expectations and realize these things are not like buying an i-Pod and things are in an absolutely terrible state for retailing in Canada, worst that has ever been witnessed and getting worse all the time.

This thread needs to be cleaned, big time.

Democracy is two wolves and a sheep discussing what's for dinner.

Freedom is the wolves limping away while the sheep reloads.

Never confuse freedom with democracy.
