I'm actually really amazed that SAIL has managed it for this long. Maybe because the cops know their stuff is so expensive nobody is buying there anyway.

I don't think it changes anything unless u were hopeing to buy a new AEG before going out to the upcomming game this weekend. They just siezed the guns from the stores its not going to affect guns already purchased and in hand. It will just take a few weeks for the stores to restock.

Hope so? an unexpected vist by the law at a game would be a dissapointing way to find out we have "new" laws!! that effect our ownership!

maybe a little help "very soon" by the retailers effected, would clear the air?

We could always pretend to "out gun" em, till they start shooting and won't call their hits!


Doubt you'll have issue with having the guns as long as you don't brandish them at the any police officers when they roll in. Chances are they'll be an officer playing there with ya anyway.


I'm still more worried about the "Large groups of guys wearing camo," still on the back of my mind ever since those 17 guys were arrested here in Ontario.

You're seriously over reacting, relax.

I'm just pleased I managed to get in and out of XP a day before they got their stuff 'collected'.

Bonus!

Specarms busted too?!

http://www.specarms.com/
is down.

Did Will get in the same situation as XP raid?

Hopefully Will at SpecArms is fine and his guns didn't get seized!

Does anyone know whats happening to XP? Are they in serious trouble?

I remember that whole Tokyo Marui Ban thing in BC. Hopefully that doesn't come to Toronto!
