The kraken is crappen'. Since ALL that S.I.R/Cabelas is garbage clear guns, the kraken is no stranger. While it has a olive drab foregrip stock and grip, the rest of it is clear. But it is the best of the crap there I must say. Things must have changed as well because I have never seen a MP7 (well... its a tactical force clear MP7, but that doesnt count..)
The only thing that Cabelas has that is decent is the SW40F. It functions like a real gun and is sweet and all, but its crap clear again.... so 120 buck aint going to you Crapbelas... (They selection for airsoft even blows in Cabelas grand forks location.. so what do we expect)

And Flea-ish, what is OO?
Actually the land probably went for cheap, nobody wants to really build in the inner city in Winnipeg, and the land that Army Surplus was located on was bought by the University of Winnipeg as they are expanding they're campus and this past winter the curling club down there was demolished to allow for expansion of the campus, its just a matter of time before the army surplus place is knocked down.

Well, Portage isn't THAT bad of an area.. Trust me, I did some surveying work around Higgins/Main, and it is bad enough driving through there, nevermind getting out and doing a job there.
Plus Portage has some decent girls walking around (only when its very bright out, haha)
But if you think about it, that location is right in the middle of everything, you would think the land would be worth a little.

Its an eyesore.. It'll be good to see it gone.

Portage has it's rough areas Contradiction, and downtown Winnipeg as a whole isn't an ideal place for businesses. The taxes are high, business is low and you always run the risk of vandalism near by. Personally, I avoided Portage after 7 whenever possible (excluding the Forks, as that was always a pretty place to hand out).

I'm quite glad that old Army Surplus store's land is bought by the UofW, as that university will hopefully help lively up the area with more students in the area.

I fly back out Friday around noon. Are you around at all during the morning? I'd love a chance to say hello.
