He's referring to this page:
http://www.6mmstore.com/burst-fire-2...t-bag/#reviews

3 reviews from random strangers on the internet, in a market context where kids buy airsoft gear and have no idea what's good or what's shit. Not exactly a vote of confidence in my book.

I'm also puzzled by the choice of retailer, any reason in particular you want to go with this one?

Anyway, numbers time!



In your quest to cheap out you forgot to figure in conversion, import duty and the fact that not only do most free shipping promotions exclude BBs, but from a US retailer they only apply to US orders.

Just so everyone is on the same page:
Column 1 is BB Bastards at the local rate
Column 2 is from bbbastard.com
Column 3 is from 6mmstore.com
Column 4 is the same, with values halved to better compare 4000 v 2000

So basically, you're saving a tenth of a cent per shot for your target figure. And you're getting unknown BBs.

Just buy Bastards.

EDIT: Oh, and /thread.

Well this just proves I should get out more... :P

This pushes BB Bastards below the cost of the mystery BBs, making the choice even more obvious.

add your airfare to that and other cost for the trip, the result it's still cheaper to buy in town. $25 for bags of bbs are not expensive by airsoft in canada standard there were times where bags of 2500 count ksc bbs would sell for anywhere from $45 - $60 depending on the availability then it gradually over time went down to $25 - $20 and finally to present cost of $10-$11/bag

To the OP Cheapening out on bbs will only cost you more in the end, I played long enough to see it happen where peole destroy $1500-$2000 custom guns from cheap bbs

My god a lot of post i did'nt saw here !
Well, 6mmstore changed their shipping price (it was an "error") so the 13$ became like 20$. At 20$ i really should take Armist or Bastard instead !

Thank everybody
