I am not to sure if they used to carry airsoft, however they do carry alot of paintball now, which I do not think is a big seller. Lets keep this alive guys and get support for another retailer especially here on the west coast.

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!!!!
make sure you get empire aisoft account, as he is planning on fabricating lower receivers for Systema PTW and there is Redwolf, Uncompany, WGC Shop, actually the more the better. Meaning you can shop for the best prices and provide that price to us and of course there will be more options "AEG, AEP, GGB, etc..." for us out there to choose from, which will lead to more customers, with more customers you will have a better income return, and the circle get's bigger and bigger....get the picture....

Should somebody import airsoft guns...'yes' comes to mind pretty quick...

At from the 3 pages this thread has become I can assume that there would be enough interest if they were to begin importing. The guys at the shop should get on here to take a poll as to what guns they should put in the initial order.

Also, I'd like to again note that the 18+ rule should be kept in action. Already enough 12 year old fucks running around with Walmart springers.

Another source for new airsoft guns in Canada is a good thing.

I live very close to there and I must say Gorilla carrying airsoft would be a godsend for me
he would have a loyal customer in me and my friends...
but yeah 18+ rule is a must

Dont want to be a party pooper, but dont majority of AS guns come from the same importer?

They should also be careful, CBSA in BC had their jelly stolen from their collective dough nut.

Airsoft Kelowna had to shut down their AS sales due to ALL retailers in BC being raided and stock seized, and that including guns people brought in for repairs!

Pooping of party noted, thank you for your time

Depending if they have the proper lisences, and how they plan to go about importing the airsoft guns, this could work for the better, or it might just make for a west coast dealer that runs the same as 007 and A&A (expensive, but accesible). Either way, I'm sure they'd have enough business to warrant the expansion into airsoft.
Personally I'd suggest they reorganize the shop a bit so that the guns themselves aren't right by the front door as the pellet guns and chinasoft guns are now.

i would support another retailer.
but ... if you are going to markup the pices like at AA and 007 then i would not buy from you. i would just buy used on ASC.

i know you are into it to make a profit ETC i know it's a bissness and would be glad to pay your company for it's services ETC shipping ... cost of licence .. ETC with your company markup.
but our dollar is amost at par with the us dollar and when you see the prices form WGC 175 - 300 $ US for a TM gun. the you sell at 600 - 700 $ i find your just getting riped off. if the prices are lower you will get high volume of sales insted of waiting for stock to sell ETC. why do you thing jing jong guns are selling so well. not becuse people think they are better than TM but, it is becuse they are selling for around 300 $ and money talks. even then Jing Jong go for 75$ new on WGC and AA is selling them at 300$+ that's a crazy markup im my mind. but they are the cheapest mid range gun's that seem to work well.

the only thing i will tell you is that i have not boght a new airsoft gun from 007 or AA since they have changed there prices. and i will not do so untill prices change. untill that day comes i will just look on the bords here and see if i can get a deal used. i know i am not the only one who feels this way.

p.s the last new gun i boght was my G36 that i boght off of asc armory


everone else seems to support this idea.

i would too but... not if you overcharge.

my 2 cents
