Yeah It's pretty stupid how they don't keep the stuff in the cages. They keep GPS systems the cages but not the softair that could potentially take out a persons eye.

I can buy airguns at Canadian Tire. The staff do not even bother carding or even asking how old I am. Last time I asked to take a look at those crappy Softair AEGs. I just wanted to see the internals and the guy opened the cage and asked if I wanted it.
The whole 18+ doesn't apply at many stores. People dont really care to bother carding or even asking.
The pay depends on your previous work experiance, on my application form I put $7/$8 and they gave me $8.10 but if your over night they give you an extra dollar on top of that so I get $9.10. My hours are 11pm-7am Monday to Friday. I have no idea of the china wage thing BUT they try to say they don't kill small business's , and that they buy from them, but the business has to make enough product AND be able to ship it to all of the Wal-marts in Canada

When you walk in at 10 am or whever they open they clap cause your the first people in within 5 min of opening. My dad took a bow when they did that. SO EMBARRASING.

I would be so tempted to get my kids to go buy one and then sue Wal-Mart for it. But then I don't have kids.....

A bunch of SoftAir guns. All of them were electric blow backs + a few non-blowback mini electrics. There was a few tubs of crappy 6mm bb's left though.
Theres no age requirement in purchasing them. I saw them nearly next to the kids toys section.

I saw a group of I'm guessing around 12 year old kids buying A STACK LOAD. They took all of the springer shotguns + several EBB's + tubs of those crappy softair bbs. As you can see the p226 is out of stock same with many of the other EBB's walmart had. I over heard them talking about how they were going to shoot cars and have a "team deathmatch" guessing they mean team skirmish.

No age requirement AT ALL. I was suprised. No wonder we have kids running around parks playing with softair and shooting each other without wearing proper eye gear.

Pictures below.


The shotguns were all sold out. It looked like a M3 shorty from what the kids were carrying.

What do you guys think about this? Should Walmart have put these behind their cages or freely let kids buy softair without their parents knowing?


Isn't that the Wal mart at Markville

Wow, I just noticed how crappy that peg board is and it's half gone haha If that was in my wal-mart who ever did that would get fired, or if it was natural wear and tear we'd fix it right away. By the way the Wal-mart I work at is going to be the first super store in Canada, on Wensday I think. Ancaster, Ontario come check it out the curtain drops on our new Grocery store with bakery, deli, meat shop there should be some good deals I think. Sorry if that sounded like an advertisment, just a heads up for cheap groceries.

I don't really see what all the big deal is about. The guns pictured bear no similarity to the products of our hobby except that they shoot a similar diameter projectile.

Brightly coloured disproportionate plastic guns have been around longer than airsoft. Some shoot darts, some shoot aspherical pellets. These ones shoot spherical pellets. Do you plan on raggin on at length about transparent cap guns at your corner store?

As long as unrestricted TOYS do not output sufficient energy to seriously harm a childs eye, there isn't a huge necessity to limit it's sale.

I know the local walmart here in Rh sells some "high end" pieces of shit. And I was tempted to buy one. Just so I could pick it apart and learn how to rebuild it from scratch. I walked off for a bit and my friend said he get it for me to take apart. I gave him an evil look and said "a tub of ammo for it says you cant get it with out stealing it. I sat there waiting looking at the lego section.(Yes I like lego your never too old for it.) He comes back with a tub of ammo the pos electric gun and a bill and says "you owe me 15 bucks." I stopped off and asked the guy at the glass wall how old to get the stuff. He just shrugged I asked him for a box of shotgun ammo payed for it he gave it too me. I walked my way to returns holding my bag with ammo in it. And then demanded to see the manager. I seen him pulled out my wallet emptied my pockets and said "how the fuck was I able to buy this and my friend whom is only 15 able to buy this." Manager gave me a funny look and said "don't know don't care get out of my office." Left the shells on his desk took the pos aeg and its now in pieces at friends it is his after all.

Moral of the story "walmart just don't give a shit."

And correct me if I am wrong but don't you need some sort of licence to buy shells?

And yes it was a true story happened recently like 2 weeks ago.
