Good point! Also strange than one month ago he revamp all his website and at that time everything seems to work well for him.

Well asking the question is answering it i guess.

Remember that Peter Kang guy or whoever that got raided by CBSA and RCMP for abusing his import licence?
And furthermore, Mark posted himself both on the JSOC and MAA forums that he's stopping import of AEGs and GBBs in march, this is no rumor.

And then there were none

So... the change in enforcement policy.. finally takes down the last public source for airsoft guns.

The issue is not " this is going to increase prices" .. the issue is now there will be no ready source for guns at all.. at any price.

New players are going to find the bar much higher for entry into this activity.

007/AA surplus... One in the same, kids.

If one goes, so does the other.

don't fret my pretty just send your guns to me at pennies on the dollars and I will make sweet sweet love to them on the battlefield

Airsoft didn't die the last few times this has happened and it won't die again

It's happened numerous times in the last two years. Retailers shutting down either voluntarily or non-voluntarily.

XP/Specarms, Warcraftgames.ca, ASC Armoury, M1 Airsoft, Rangers Airsoft, Double Edge Airsoft, 007 has already shut down once before, and now A&A. Pretty sure I missed a couple others in there too.

Cash in your RRSPs and buy hardware to re-sell in a few months time when the snow melts.

No its not your imagination... but that would be because real guns are not prohibited devices... so you can be licensed to buy them and own them..

so after we get past this dark period, there will be a stable importer of airsoft (i.e. TM, CA etc), or at least that is how it has been in the past correct?

They said that's the way it's happened before. No certainty for the future.
