Wow, I wish I could find a flightsuite in good condition for around $50! The two I have cost me about $70 I think. Probably could have gotten them cheaper through logistics lol.

He loved to show them off to gansta's looking for a gat.

If anyone goes in there any time soon, ask him what his user name is on ASC and ask him if the seller of any gun(s) he buy's knows they are going to a surplus store for mark upped resale.

Also, if you do a deal with them just remember they sell to anyone no matter age. If you pay cash, you walk out the door with it. Your supporting that.
After searching back through, I remember reading those threads a while ago. As I said, I knew the name sounded familiar but I couldn't place it.

I believe they got in a lot of shit a short while ago for selling knives to underagers. Next time I go for camo, it'll be back in Barrie.

Hero's Ha Ha Ha Ha

I find this so funny, I used to supply this clown. I have not sold him anything in about 4 years. This is 4 years of bliss of not dealing with stupidity. Love it. I heavily encourage people to shop around but when it comes down to it Army Issue and myself have the best selection of gear in the province bar none. Not blowing my own horn because I can not find my bugle just telling it like it is and yes Beaver used to be good when a certain cheap dutch guy was working there. PS I used to supply Beaver, Angie and Hero but now I only deal with the man, Army Issue.:banghead:

Creative is ok but they usually say stuff they didn't stock is crap. Such as Star magazines...and claims they misfeed 50% of the time...

Yeah... along with saying that every other gear supplier in the GTA gets their stuff from him.....And trying to pass off replica stuff as real... but If you know what you are looking for.. you can find some great stuff in that shop

He did explain difference between replica cadpat and authentic cadpat to me once. I don't know if its for the truth but he said something about Replica cadpat is not as dark when compared to real cadpat. And he showed me a comparison...

yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep, I can attest to that. I went down on Saturday to try to find a suitable lefty holster, the back wall display case was open for 3, I can only guess ages 7-maybe at most 12 year old's to rip through. I heard neumerous thing's get banged around and can only picture how that aeg got so busted up, lol watched it (With a mag in there, yep!) get dropped twice by one of these kids. For the sake of shits n'giggles I tried talking to a few of the guy's that worked there about airsoft, to see if I could get the same shpiel that Kel and his bud's got, but to no avail. No one bit and the most conversation I got was how expensive the sport was and them trying to find out where I play. (fook tellin' em any of that).

My worst overall experiance, was a place I worked simply called 'Army Surpluss' it was ran by a fucktardshitcock named Ike Gueist. I have no clue if that ripoff jizzbuckets still in buisness or not, shitfuck ripped me off 3500.- (long story) and ripped off a ton of local and overseas suppliers, lots -looots of bouncing and nsf cheques. One store was out on Finch and Jane and the other downtown off Dundas and Yonge - great location, even great prices but one hell of a fucking slavedriver - bitter? you bet my ass I am.
Ah well. Everyones got their stories and experiances.

Next time I come by for pants (or a skirt!) I'll unload.. holy mother of... yeah I'll keep my trap shut for now. I worked out of his main office, then out of his keele/finch store and his downtown location on weekends about 9/10 years ago.. I had no clue he was still in business, even better down at Kensington where a lot of friends have told me to go.... lol, that woulda been a nice shock not knowing and walking in there..
