I see it's legal, ethical, and sustainable. Is it also cruelty free?

No animal testing; just humans?

But seriously; congrats!

congrats, after a quick review of the site, seems like a very professional and noteworthy evolution in Airsoft retailing - other provinces should take note.

So, what does this mean exactly? What does having the association do?

Assuming your association is only for brick and mortar based airsoft businesses?

Not at all, online businesses who ship from and operate within Canada are more than welcome to join.

At this point, only brick and mortar stores and some on-line store are visible to any under aged people .

Unless you are AV'd, additional airsoft vendors that are in the AV'd retailer section are not visible but now will be automatically visible on your vendor listing if they become members.

Are you going to be extending your association across Canada?
