importing though stores?

I don't now any store owners on a first name basis, so bear with me. Are there stores that will import guns for a customer? I'd like to see a TM MEU in Canada, but I don't have that magic AV status. Some help please. (besides the usual "get AV'ed, check then sales threads.")

Yes.

Wait until you're 18 and get Age Verified. For the love of God, please don't try to circumvent the system either.

Seriously?

Thats kinda circumventing the AV system dude. Do you 'really' expect us to tell you alternatives when we have a system like this in place?

Overall, get age verified. If you need to wait, wait. Its well worth it.

The stores and individuals who offer those services exist, and are located inside the AV only section.

Even if we'd give you a store name or retailer's name, he wouldn't do it for an underaged. 18+, that's the rule across all Canada, so... bear with it and be patient!

No it isn't. A lot of retailers do say 18+ but there's nothing forcing them to.
Just saying.

Ok, right, nothing forcing them, hence the word "rule" as opposed to "law"

Talking about Law

So, it's about the same, right?

>We're talking about airsoft guns
>Airsoft guns
>Airsoft

That might clarify it a bit

@OP I know this is a broken record, but get AV'd, speak with a retailer, chances are they might be ordering 1 or 2 of the guns youre looking for

The store outside of the classifieds here stock only certain brands that were either built specifically for the canadian market or to work around specific laws.In most cases, this is why they have a clear frame or slide.

TM doesn't make clear guns. Ergo, you will need to work with a specialised importer in the cool part of the ASC boards.

Therefore, AV or bust.

I understand the store 18+, and I'm impatient for info. To Disco_Dante thanks for the info, I've never been in the AV section so I wouldn't know.
I can't wait till I'm AV'ed, Sorry for trying to get around the rules of this site, I thought I was asking about generally speaking, I was wrong.

Thanks for the info guys.
