Eastcoastairsoft.com too good to be true?

Hey guys. I was just searching for the net, and I found this site.

http://www.eastcoastairsoft.com/

Their FAQ says this:

Quote:
Here at ECA we are willing to work with Canadian customers. Yes, we can ship to Canada, but due to strict customs and regulations, there is always a 1% chance that the order will be seized and not returned. We are not responsible if this happens. If you need more information about this, feel free to give us a call any time. But as of now yes we will ship orders to canada, just please remember, you are ordering at your own risk. East Coast Airsoft Inc. is not responsible for any lost, stolen, damaged, or seized packages going to Canada.
They even have a few guns that say: "Canadian Friendly".

Is this website too good to be true?

EDIT: The website also has a forum, but I decided to ask here as I trust you guys more. :P

Alright thanks. I was looking forward to that spetnaz JG. :P
But, I'd rather get it legally than illegally and getting blacklisted. Lol

well the worst that could really happen is you not receiving it.
The blacklist is just regular administration records, which probably get erased after a while.

it's just another zazoom, shipping to canada, not caring if the customer actually receives the package.
They're exploiting the fact that it's regulated here and that we can't get AEGs.
They must have a lot of Canadian customers.
This company will probably get flagged soon when they start intercepting all their guns.

Oh my! It appears youve found a magic lamp in the sand on the beach and you have given it rub! Suprise! Nothing has come out because this is reality! Not crazy lala - things you wished for came true - only %1 of airsoft siezed by the CBSA land!

As the retailers statement says, they dust their hands of the situation once they ship the order. What do they care? They already have your money!

Lets examine the darker side of things. For all I know this company is a legitimate US retailer, but lets say they were not. What if they just took your money, didnt supply you with a tracking number and said they shipped you the item when you they really did not and just kept your money?

Or how about another possibility, say your order does get through, and its a broken gun? What do you do? They dusted their hands of responsibility, cost of repairs is on you. Even worse, what if they shipped you a broken gun on purpose?

The amount of silly possibilities is endless, this is an american based business whose bulk purchasing crowd is most likley the US, they just tossed up that little blurb about shippping to Canada because they are doing what a business does. They are trying to make more money.

You have been here long enough to know better, much better. Please cease with the inane questions.
