ASCA - Sale of final AEG stock

ASCA is selling off the last few AEG's and GBB's in our inventory. We will not be importing any more for the foreseeable future. More news on that later, but for now we've only got about 10 items left (sigh), enjoy 15% off our regular retail prices.

AEG's

And no, it's not related to the post in General right now, but I can say that that is part of a larger discussion that needs to start soon in the airsoft community here.

Well, this can't be good.

Is the axe set to come down?

Yes, we declare all our taxes fully to the government. I knocked 15% off, so you could consider it tax free if you like.

The government may give us a hard time in this business, but we do our best to play by all the rules.

Well, it's hard to say for sure, but it seems likely. The axe is being sharpened every day. When I find some free time I will give my input on the subject in more detail. Like I said, there's a discussion that needs to start in Canada, in our community, and with the government.

Hey HonestJohn,

Sorry to hear about the news... hope things get resolved peacefully and well, that needed discussion comes to the table sooner than later.

Cheers,
KaOz.

Would this be provincial government or federal? I caught wind of something yesterday when out for lunch with Bloodsport, Apoc, and Crab, Kip said something about new laws coming down in Ontario (or was it with federal customs?) and making it more difficult for importers to import airsoft guns. At least there's a high chance we'll change our provinical government in November, but federally the Conservatives would be the most likely to listen to us at least.

Please do Miles, your perspective on this from the retailer insider point of view is very important to all of us.

Similiarly if anyone has anything that is solid on this, ie: are we facing a crackdown or is this an isolated case, please chime in, but keep the 'sky is falling' posts to a minimum... facts only at this point is what people need.

There have been rumblings about this in our local forums as well. Its been suggested that we need a strong unified canada wide movement if anything is going to get done. We need EVERYBODYS support and do this correctly through the proper legal channels.

Miles, i'm anxious to hear what your take on this is and what needs to be done.

I realise ofcourse as has been pointed out numerous times that all of this has been tried before, but if we dont try again the axe is just going to come down anyway.

Well, like I said, I unfortunately don't have time to get into it right now.

The most important point for everyone on this site to bear in mind is that possession of replicas is not illegal - it is explicitly defined in our Criminal Code. Owners have nothing to worry about. There has been no change in that law, and none on the horizon.
