I dont believe there is a direct walk in store in BC, Im sure members often have extra bags for sale and what not at games, but as it stands the majority of people purchase their BBs online. Im trying my best to remeber if theres any local retailers in that area that may stock them but I have to admit Im comming up blank.

Hopefully someone local can jump in toss up some info.

where in BC are you for straters. Like T7 said, the majority of peolpe buy online, but like me, i buy at games because of a few members are distributors for bbs. So maybe you could purchase in bulk at a game from a member and wave shipping fees.

let us know!

How bulk are we talking? I bought a case of Metal Tech black BB's (24 bags of .25's 300 count) from HELLFIRE989 @ Metal Tech http://www.mtmfg.ca

good discount on that order and shipping cost was more than reasonable and fast! And he's in BC.

Optix sells BBs? Cool! I just met him the other day to get age verified.

A group of guys I play with want to go all in on .2s we are trying to start something up but we want good bbs. We were hoping to 20000 altogether and we do have the option for ordering online we just want a close place to order from because shipping costs are quite a bit

BC's a big place, can you update your profile to narrow it down somewhat?

Bunch of guys from the Island here, check in with the Nanaimo/Victoria crew and I'll bet they've got a source.

20000 ain't all that much for a group. that's like 6-10 bags. depending on how many guys that could be one or two days of skrims.

the case I ordered was for 2 of us but we mix it with whites. I think between the both of us were just shy of using up half. 72000 rds black plus whites. roughly 2:1 or 3:1 black to white mix.

BBS is a retailer for BB Bastards in Pac region although he has other things to do right now (school and all that). Optix (Richmond) is your best bet he's trying to introduce a new BB brand and from what the guys at Op-For are saying are pretty good BB's.

Failing that try to get in contact with the guys at CIA (Central Island Airsoft) if they're still around. I believe it's either them or SIR (South Island Rangers) that use the BCAC forums as their regional forum.

Lot's of options in Pac region man. If you want to go a bit east then Metal Tech (Metal Tech Manufacturing) (based in Kelowna I believe) or capitalairsoft (run by baker_jeff) are good bets too.
