Road Trip

My Fellow Airsofters,


I'm heading on a road trip with my girlfriend to Calgary and Vancouver. And I want to spend a wad of cash on some new gear 'cause, you know, who needs to buy clothes at a mall when you can buy tac vests and guns?

Anyone know any good places to hit up?

Thanks

If you have the time, you should go to seattle too. Your girlfriend would love that cause she can go to all the outlet stores like the nordstrom rack. Cheap clothing! i forgot how long the drive is though but there are a few stores there where you can buy stuff and bring it back over, but no guns though!
if i remember, precision airsoft is one.

As far as calgary goes?

911 supply (911supply.ca), seals action gear (sealsactiongear.com), crown surplus (http://armysurplus.com they have IMP's and other stuff you might not see elsewhere). Beware that seals isn't open on sat/sun. 911 is closed sundays and crown is open all weekend.

Get the guns and gear after you come back from seattle.

I forget the name but there's an outlet area thats in seattle with things like oakley store, nike store, **** store, etc.

Then theres also the other place south of seattle (forget that too but I think it's called portland or something). Some really nice shopping there.

As for Vancouver definitely hit up the Grouse Grind, nice workout and nice view at the top (going down it's only $5, don't pay to go up it's like $25 or something) (budget at least 1-1.5 hours if you're fit, otherwise the aveage time is something like 2-3 hours, also don't wear sandles, try for runners, or hiking boots, but try to wear those cross hiking/running *****).

I forget the name but the Baden Powell trail I think has a hike up to this mountain (I think it's called the 3 sisters or lion peak or something). Also of intrest might be the BCMC (BC Mountaineering Club) trail that goes up the Grind but I'd suggest use the trail provided by Grouse.

Link to the BCMC trail

Shopping wise, Metro (metrotown/metropolis) is probably the place to go (Burnaby), otherwise for a bt of a change Arberdeen and Yohan (Richmond) are some nice alternatives, or Crystal Mall right across the street from Metro.

In vancouver if you have a lot of cash to burn then Robson st. might be one of your stops a lot of high end stores there and even if you don't have a lot of cash might as well take a walk and window shop down the street.

Try to avoid Main and Hastings. Not like theres anything cool there anyways (well except for gastown and chinatown).

Gearwise Daves is the place to go (a bit of a drive but well worth it, it's in New West), otherwise Gorilla Surplus (East Van) is a closer alternative.
