I think (once you've created your business model), you should implement it as fast as possible and get your feet wet as that will show you the viability of your concept. ASC, although extremely active, is not always the best barometer for airsoft in Canada.

The clock is ticking... I would imagine around November people will start thinking about their indoor venues again so that only gives you about 5 months!
Agreed, I don't expect.. or want to open a surplus shop... the odd thing, stuff you don't want or need any more.
For the most part... it could just be a good "depot" for goods exchange to facilitate the transactions done here on ASC.

I am working on the business model.. and the plan, and investing in the facilities upgrades we will need.

I am hoping for a late summer launch.

Will keep you posted,
But I'm gonna go dark for a while here on ASC to focus on the work

Wait but youll make sure that only people who are 18+ will get the actual guns right? They need like 2 or 3 pieces of id right? (Drivers Licence, Birth certificate, Passport etc.). Otherwise they cant buy "pre-owned" guns that sell for $250-400 rather than $500-600 brand new? The last thing we need is more stupid people doing more stupid shit so airsoft will become illegal.

... I think of it more as a glass anal thermometer with a habit of breaking off inside the patient at inconvenient moments...

Just go for and see what happens...

ASC, or any Board for that matter, is a limp dick in a puddle of mud.. at best. A Thermometer is a pipe dream.

I've found these places to be totally irrelevant to the actual game, people, and events that happen while actually playing Airsoft.

I kinda view Airsoft Boards like Pubs... full of drunk, incoherent banter that really.. is mostly meaningless.

Sorry, I couldn't quite get that over the incoherent meaninglessness of your post... I think I need a drink now...
