Oh shit... that's bad.

That's definitely not some gangstashit, they wouldn't put Magpul stocks or PEQ15 on their guns... damn why going after a legitimate hobby? There's enough gangs in Toronto with REAL guns to go after...

Likely a collector. Probably had a relative shipping them up as "gifts".

I hope we get to hear the full story, though it will likely never happen.

Shouldn't they be going after some real firearms, or more importantly some dope, instead of attacking our hobby?

I know it seems lame for authorities to be going after toy guns but there's a reason why Canadian Tire in the GTA had to stop selling pellet guns.

Lots of people were getting robbed, and back in 2004 before Toronto Police executed Project Impact a peace officer was shot in the ear with a pellet gun by a group of 12-14 year old kids who were all packing CT Pellet guns.

For those that remember, "Black Ops" had the exact same guns as pictured for sale at one point.. Low and behold, as of 1:20 earlier today he "Banana'd" them all.

(http://www.airsoftcanada.com/showthread.php?t=99655)

Not pointing any fingers, but I think we can all add 1+1 = 2 in this case.

Sad to see another member of this community go, hope all works out.

I'll be honest I'm not 100% sure myself, but I'd rather not take chances, whatever those may be lol.

And by accessories, they must mean all the metal bodies he had...

Sad to see good AEGs go to waste : (

Well, not just the AEGs and GBBs, but more for the guy too... Hope he's able to sort everything out.
