Well, what happen was I got a pm from a user (666), and was refered to someone who knew him quite well. He had a talk with Jeff, and Jeff came around.

I went in last night, and had a talk with him personally. Got some money, and some gear (I know what you're all thinking... "why would you give him business after that?" Well, to answer in one word: Convenience.) that I needed..

No fists were thrown. hahaha sorry guys!

I'm sorry but this whole affair has an odor to it. Sounds like faults on both sides…

I hate to say it man, but resolving this issue like this just encourages him to rip off someone in the future. I'm glad you resolved it to your likeing,
but in a case like this it would have been nice to see the cops bust his ass to prevent him from ripping off some poor dude in the future.

faults on both sides? Care to clarify that?

I posted the problem in hopes of getting it resovled, and getting the word out that he's crooked. If anyone from ASC gets ripped off by him, they don't have an excuse...

I have no doubt in my mind that it encourages him, infact, he was ripping some paintballer off while I was there... He's got a real shady operation going on, not to mention all his firearms violations... However, if I've stopped just one person from dealing with him, I've done my part.

Hero's prays on consumers who don't do their homework and those who are sloppy or don't show the savvy to look around. Anyone on this board for more than 6 months in Southern Ontario knows better, we've all just stopped talking about it because its common knowledge.

As an alternative, you can try beaver's. My friend works there, and I've been going there for over 2 1/2 years, with all great experiences.

For the record, Hero was given the boot and delisted by Ebay. You don't have to be a genius to figure out why.

Whole place seemed kinda shifty on my first visit, many things way overpriced (129.99 for a PB mask that I've seen at the splatters proshop being sold for 80 as just one example of many).

Think Scooby mentioned that they don't have airsoft guns in the store anymore. Jeff asked me while I was in the store making my very first visit to the store to track him down a G&P Pulse Rifle conversion kit for a thompson he has in the backroom. I directed him to ASC, he explained that he wasnt really into the "computer thing". So to be nice I made some inquiries and will be nice to also call him back today to let him know it would have to be ordered and shipped, probably not the answer he was looking for but ah well. When I heard some kid ask about Airsoft guns (And he was so obviously a kid, so no old fart jokes). Jeff said he didnt have any in stock. I also asked him directly if he sold to under 18 airsoft which I received a "No" to.

I'm going to personally stick to shopping at Army Issue for many reasons but primarly cause I trust it's owner.

Atreyu you weee Scot it's a let down cause you know you wanted to be the one to post the random "I met Zeonprime" comment yourself PFFT! hehe

well off to test some water chemistry and drink my coffee (not in that particular order)
