As soon as God looks at my secret verification post in whatever hidden dungeon of a forum they use to store them, I'll be spending a hell of a lot more as well.

Keep basic stuff in stock like pistons and gears. I like a store/website that when I need a replacement part asap they will have it in stock.

It cost money to keep a large inventory, but it is worth it.

Give a 5% discount to preorders or something cause they don't cost you anything to store.

Be honest.
Don't price gouge.
Treat return customers well.
Free shipping over a certain amount is always nice.

I have been in the customer service business for many years. So I wouldnt worry to much about customer relations. As for now, this thread is more about how much the average player spends per year.

Normally around $200-300 depending if any issues come up. In the last 2 months I've been ordering parts for a new adition to my armoury, so realisticly I've spent over $700 + Gundoc fees.

P.S. I don't know if things like aimpoint batteries, goggles, and gear count, so I left them out of my estimate.

My part orders splits into roughly:

Redwolf: ~$2530
Airsoftparts.ca: ~$710 single orders, + $380 from group orders
EmpireAirsoft: ~$1310
A&A Airsoft: ~$800
ASC Armory: ~$600
007: ~$300
DEA/Rangers: ~$200
DST: ~$520
ASC Buy/Sell: ~$740
AI: $40
Illusion: ~I forget, but VERY fast shipping on emergency parts!
Some other old school retailers, I forget too, sorry guys.

There is a little bit of gear mixed in (going by user account) but for the most part this is all parts sales.

What I look for is:

1. PRICE and Availability - One without the other and I stop shopping there. I need both a good selection of stuff that is beyond just normal repair parts and prices that are competitive. Both Airsoftparts and Redwolf shine here. Now, since Systema parts are very hard to get ahold of, EmpireAirsoft gets kudos for having stuff in stock and ready to ship.

2. SERVICE - For me, service is unfortunately second. I rather get my stuff and for a good price then be lead on for months of polite conversation and excuses for piss poor prices. Airsoftparts has excellent prices and throws great deals we asked, also incredibly polite to deal with and very quick responses. DST (Daves Surplus Tactical) gives great prices IF phoned and not internet ordered. Redwolf can be a really service #@$ sometimes but have excellent selection and prices. A&A has great service and Mark will actually pay attention to well worded corrections (fixed an error on a battery charger description, that is service to everyone).

3.In Canada: Meh, I don't mind waiting most of the time for stuff. Huang, Empire, and Redwolf demonstrate this. Mind you, I have had emergency repairs to do and being in country, and in-stock has really paid off. Mind you, that is for boring repair parts. I don't pay more usually for something in-country if I can get it overseas for way less.

Final words: You will have some very stiff competition here starting out. Huang and Airsoftparts, between the two, have really made it easy to shop in-country. For large orders of stuff, Redwolf. For my PTW stuff, Empire. The only market I can see for you to dominate in is bringing in restricted stuff, but we all know how those threads go...

Well since this is my first year playing it might not be a good idea of showing how much i spend on Airsoft since I am sure I won't spend this much next year but last year (2007) I spent around $4500. PTW M4 including mags, batteries and cylinders $3500ish, ICS M4 and mags $650ish, battery for ICS,boots, goggles, BDU's, reddot,etc take up the remaining bit. I don't include BB's in that.
