Retarded Prices???

ok, i guess this is more or less a venting thread, but the prices guys are asking for airsoft guns is just stupidly retarded here in Canada...... i mean mp5's for 5 or 6 hun, when the same one in the US is 90.00, or scar for 900 bucks.

i picked up a used JG Navy full metal in the US for 45.00, the same one ive seen here in the sell forums for 500+ dollars. thats just not normal.:banghead:

come on. get real.

It's forbidden by the law to import airsoft guns (Not clearsoft) in Canada, so it's more difficult to get one inside the country. And with the demand, the price increases.

Hi, welcome to Canada. Enjoy your stay in a country run by the paranoid liberal majority.

But just to stay on topic, I gotta admit that the guns in the classifieds are insanely overpriced. They don't just run for 400-600$ now. They go way over the 800$ mark

If you would like to save your money you should purchase a gun that is legal in Canada. The benefit from that is the gun you purchase here is brand new and most times guaranteed by the retailer not to mention the amount of money you will save. Most of the guns in the classifieds are used and although black might have certain abnormalities that are not stated nor evident at first glance.

Depends on what you are selling, If you have a rare piece of equipment that everyone wants let's say a Smokey M82A1 or a CAW Vulcan how much do you think that's worth??

If you answer $1500 - $2000 - Try again!!

Airsoft is not cheap people if you want quality you got to pay for them and unfortunately in Canada we have a very limited means of getting quality full metal AEG, and it's a simple rule of Supply and demand.

Direct marketing in the noob tank?

EDIT: As for "saving money" or spewing lies about the stock in the classifieds, you've just convinced me what kind of seller you are.
