Like I said earlier, how hard is it to track down that Peter sold a gun to Frank. They go talk to Frank and want to know where the gun is. Frank tells them he sold it on Airsoftcanada.com. They come in here and realize that "illegal replicas" are being sold (not hard look at the classified names lol). So they contact a verifier (there's a list or find somewhere around the age verified thing, they have entire teams of computer geeks to do that sort of shit). Once they get in they start copying names, or HELL start "purchasing" guns to get bank info, emails, names, and addresses (I never put a return address). Or they set up a "sting" and sell guns to get addresses.
Not to sound paranoid or anything, but "THEY" have been here for long. The powers that be know about this place, this sport and the sales, don't kid yourselves the powers that be have been living amongst us for a while.

Yes, and how was it that Red Tiger got busted in PQ? Wasn't it in a face-to-face deal/sting.

They've had years to do spy on ASC, if they were doing it, it's nothing new.

Don't panic is all I can say.

Wonder if he scored anything lol!

That would actually be the worst thing someone could do, given that possession in itself isn't a crime, but unlicensed transfer is.

So the scenario would be more along the lines of retailers getting spooked and pulling out/going entirely private and private sales drying up cuz everyone decides to sit on what they have.

Yeah I geuss there is no point in panicing, cause if they were going to start a shitstorm, wouldn't the have done it by now? And even if they do start something, can't do anything about it, so why worry about something you can't stop?
