I have never seen TTAC3 look better, that Type 56 behind Brian is a real looker.

Yeah, makes me stoked on the one I've got in the mail.

Brian expressed himself very well, but it's obvious they cut the finer points he may have made for the idiots who watch this show. Honestly, a sensationalist piece on replicas, followed by a bit on the legitimacy of a transvestite's cancer curing invention. Absolutely pathetic. It was as least nice to see footage of people having fun with airsoft in a controlled environment.

edit - My bad, the piece is still running. Brian's point about 18+ and liscensing was good too.

So we have transvestites going around swindling honest folks with bogus cancer-cure shams and these idiots are worried about toy guns? WTF!!!??

Could've been a lot worse.

Brian, did they leave out anything you told them?

Just to remember to everyone: http://www.cbc.ca/marketplace/2009/t...guns/main.html

Could have been worse, I think. The average joe will probably still think that "looks like a gun = bad", but anybody actually listening to what was said, especially Brian's points, should understand the facts and shouldn't be that scared.

Oh, and the bunny (?) at TTAC made me laugh.

Hmm I guess they didn't like my interview, lol too much emphasis on safety and responsibility I guess.

Overall it wasn't too bad, puts more emphasis and questions about BB guns than airsoft.

Oh, and I liked the fact they compared the three laws and how it doesn't makes sense.

Not that bad, I don't think anyone objects to over 18. the people at TTAC looked and acted responsible. The point of the piece is that under 18's should not be able to buy them. Something we all likely support

I think it's time that we start submitting some comments on the Marketplace website.

Do not spam them. Either make sensible, balanced comments or don't comment.
