How badly is ASCarmoury affected by recent news?

Hi,
I just started airsoft, and am a little concerned that the sport may be dying just as I was getting into it...
I wanted to order a TM Hi-capa 5.1 from ASCA but they're out of stock. Is this because your suffering from random customs seizures like the rest of the retailers?

Just looking for some info, that's all

I doubt it. Those siezures were only in BC to my understanding.

I just bought all my stuff used from the buy/sell, no regrets, your age verified so its the best thing if your starting out IMO! Saved me some mony but spent it on gear, but now I are l337! LOL
But ya with things going the way they are the retailers may be slow on restocking till things blow over and cool off but this is Not the end of airsoft!

Cheers!

He wasn't asking about the classifieds, he was asking about ASC Armoury.

ASC is out of stock on the 5.1, because it's a popular gun and it sells fast. I was thinking of getting one, but they were all scooped up before I could make up my mind.

The 4.3 sells really fast too. It's a good thing I bought mine from ASC back when they opened up.

The recent raids, may slow down the shippments, but I have confidence in Miles and Carl tho and know they will keep feeding my addiction to GBB.

Has anyone thought of simply asking the ASC guys instead of guessing?

I have it on good authority that Miles has been arrested after being caught with a garbage bag full of weed.

The only retailers raided were in BC, XP, Specarms, and Airsoft Kelowna. If you're talking about 007, they weren't raided, a shipment of accessories was seized.
