I don't recall the last time I've seen a 'parent' in there... at least a parent that was over 25 years old. Sigh.

I still owe you a few shots for that WiseOwl.... darn you.

well i think we're fucked i was in a SF not to long ago aside from the dildos (aqua want me to mail u one?) and dumb shit (i.e bongs, shirt and random crap that makes u wunder who buys it) i'm yet to see and airsoft gun of any kind but if i see one i'll make sure to buy it and put it to good use as triple back-up or a boredem pillow shooter. plus i'll make sure i tell the local boys of that so we can buy out the stock to keep johnny dump shit from getting killed.

I told the store owners about the laws for Replicas, basic version. So now if a parent buys it, they know they must supervise it's use at all times. They will also tell buyers those things cant be used in public at all.
The owners will not sell to anyone whom they suspect will simply hand it over to a kid brother/cousin.
The ID/name taking is a big deterrent. So at least I must commend them for trying. They dont just look at your ID, you fill a form.
It's not a perfect system, but to be honest we here face the same problem; parents buying and then letting the kids have them. No real way to prevent that, is there?

*****SORRY FOR THE DOUBLE POST DIDNT MEAN TO!

it is called "airstrike" at walmart. They have shotguns and pistols. I think i might get the pistol because it comes with one of thoes targets that hold the bbs.

When my gun still worked my dad when and bought the bbs at walmart for me and when it said check for id she had no idea what for. So most of the people there have no idea what they are.

Ok so I've never seen one of these stores before, but seriously, San Francisco??? They named their store after the gayest city in America. Maybe if the store was at Church and Wellesley and they sold dildos and shit then it would make sense. But a dollar store in a bunch of suburbs, that's just stupid. And they sell bongs too? that's just retarded. If I want a bong i'll go to Kensington market, atleast there I can get a bong and if I ask the right questions I can get the shit you put in bongs over the counter. Not exactly legal but that place isn't the most sophisticated area in Toronto. This store sounds like a bunch of bullcrap on sale, no thanks for me.

San Francisco stores are the funniest thing I've ever walked past because everytime I do, I see underage kids in the back of the store flipping through the 'poster displayer' which is basicly full of pornstar posters.

With what SF sells, I think it makes Aqua's and Droc's Top 10 Places to Shop.

San Francisco stores are also a name of a clothing chain, depends on what part of Canada you are in.
Near Ottawa, it's San Diego.
Same store really.
