More retailers is always a good thing of course
How large of a stock would they be considering keeping?

go for it! what we need now is more supply of airsoft items (mainly guns). but i'd strongly agree they abide to the 18+ rule.
btw keep in mind there was a airsoft raid in BC a couple years back.

does anyone know where Gorilla airsoft is?

Broadway between Clark and Commerical. Very good location. A few minutes walk from the skytrain.

1. If Gorilla Surplus were to import airsoft hardware/accessories for sale at their location, would there be enough interest from the Airsoft community here in the lower mainland?

2. If they were to legitimately import airsoft guns, would there be enough interest in the airsoft community in the lower mainland?

3. Would the airsoft community in the lower mainland like to see a ligitimate and reputable company branch into airsoft in the lower mainland?

Thanks for your input.

Are they actually considering mail orders for airsoft? Or are they going to be like the other local surplus store and carry a small stock of airsoft stuff for local walk-ins only? IE, not advertise on their webpage.

http://store.valueweb.com/servlet/gorillas/StoreFront

Gorilla's webpage if anyone is interested.

It's always nice to have another retailer providing they are going to be 18+ only and carry decent gear and a competitive price. having a online storefront for the rest of the country would guarantee there would be enough interest.

Well we have not discussed the details of the amount of supply and that sort of thing as of yet. At this point, we are just trying to guage the interest in the airsoft community in having a reputable dealer such as Gorilla supply airsoft items. Rob from Gorilla Surplus is going to look into suppliers as well as all the red tape that may or may not be required. But I am hoping that if we as a community show enough interest then I believe he will start supplying. Speaking to him today he is genuinely interested in doing this. So speak up lads and make your voices heard!!!!

Hey

Hey guys:

Didn't Gorilla Surplus used to carry airsoft guns (like a few years back with specarms was still around)?
