Airsoft Stores in Hong Kong / Which BB's will you buy?

I'll be going back to Hong Kong soon to get some airsoft stuff. Are the prices they have the same as their advertised online prices or is it different? Im obviously going to bargain with them like crazy.

When it comes to hobbies and toys, Hong Kong is definitely cheaper. They mark it up when they sell online.

I think you made a slight misconversion there.

It's easier to convert to CAD now that we're at par, but I've just been dividing/multiplying by 7 since 2006. I don't care about the .5 (.6 for Canada) or whatever because that's my gain and if it needs to be that accurate your not saving anything especially not after what you paid for airfare.

Never been to hong kong but in Taiwan the prices are slightly lower and you can always bargain.

I enjoy KSC 0.30s, never had any issues to date with them.

If you plan to shoot IPSC, try TM superior grade 0.3g pellets. A good improvement in group size, but they're hella expensive or completely unavailable here. Typically bags of bbs are barely worth coming back with. They're heavy, occupy a lot of space, and they're cheap enough here. If it's bbs you want to come back with, get dense expensive ones that are really good.

Get yourself some hard to find spare parts for your collection. Dinky springs, firing pins for your GBB etc. The stuff that gets pranged or lost when you disassemble your guns or dry fire it too much.
