Nope it sure doesnt.

Just like the old saying goes, post op is post op. All cats are grey in the dark.

Yeah, who the hell cares how it gets here. The fact that it's here is good enough.

Actually I would be slightly opposed to "it" if "it" was smuggled in unwrapped or unpackaged in somthings rectum. Thats a smell you cant get out.

To me, these low prices we're seeing with these small dealers just seems to prove the big guys were just greedy fucks taking advantage of the shortage of guns to jack their prices by ridiculous amounts on a regular basis. I never bought that "but the license is expensive" bullshit then, and even less now. If a license is $2000 / year, at the prices the big guys sell them for, they'd have to sell about 10 guns to recover that cost. With the rabid demand for guns in Canada, that would take 1 day at most.
You have to also consider that the big retailers also had a lot more overhead to pay for, which translated to there higher prices. They had to pay for their website, I believe most had big warehouses they had to pay for. Most of the small guys on here post there stuff for free and i'm sure probably sell out of there house. I'm not saying all small retailers on here do that as I don't know all of them personally. Just my 2 cents.

Yes it seems guns are more available lately than they have been for a few years. But there's still the issue I brought up before of availability of certain guns. Still waiting on a Piper M134. And pretty much any "limited edition" model, as well as newer items coming out we'll never see unless it's in the classifieds months or even years later. When we get access to stuff coming off the assembly line, then I'll be happy.

Well yes, it still is not a collector's market... I'll give you that. But for entry level... AKs MP5s and M4s and a good selection of GBB pistols, its all good.

It takes a while to wiggle into the community deep enough to find out how and where to get the more exotic and hard to find stuff.. but most people that want that kind of thing are willing to wait.

It matters because there might finally be a way for us to bring these guns ourselves.
Which means even cheaper guns.

It may not even have to be illegal either. Who knows? :>

It doesn't seem to be hard to get the higher end stuff.

And I think that we should stop posting about this topic for at least another week!!!

I don't have anymore appendages to cross!
