You're bitching needlessly, bud. Its in the works, nobody is going to make you an exception and get you verified faster because you are having a bit of a tantrum here. Wait for the person in charge of that to verify the batch and you will be good to go. Good things dont come instantly. Be patient.

Unfortunately this is a slow but necessary process to help prevent the sale and distribution of airsoft to minors. Try to liken it too a government ID, you submit your information or take your test and it takes a few weeks to arrive, it is a pain in the ass but its better then having unlicensed drivers running around. Also try to remember that this community is staffed by volunteers that have lives and schedules and the demands of a massive community can be very time consuming, even more so if they where to attempt to do everything as it comes up.

Having said this I can understand your frustration, but taking it out on Kalnaren won't accelerate the process of getting your AV tag. Also this really is not the place to have this sort of discussion.

Cheers

And before any of you get on my case about why it took so long to meet with an AVer, first there arent many in Edmonton, and of those only one responded, and he and I couldn't get our schedules aligned. That and I had cancer this year. So when a store finally got approved to AV and I met him I thought I was all set. WRONG


Atleast in Edmonton there are options as far as AV'ers go. Where I live there is only 1 AV'er and I don't even know if he is still active. Oh well, Patience prevails and a trip to the city may be good for the soul......

Sorry to hear about the Cancer, hope all is going well for you.

The market has fluctuated quite a bit recently with the arrival of the new Safesoft initiative.

There are about 420 posts in the AEG classifieds. Many of these posts contain multiple guns, but quite a few are expired listings that were not removed or discarded because of a local trade. It would be safe to say around 500 AEGs are currently available right now in the classifieds.

There are around 390 posts in the bolt and gas section. Once more, taking into account multiple gun threads and abandonned threads, around 450 pistols, gas rifles and bolt rifles available.

There are around 630 posts in the parts and accessory section, containing innumerable parts ranging from simple screws to near complete guns, kits, optics and mags.

All of this is available right now from particulars in Canada, so by getting AVed, you gain access to an absurd amount of stuff right now.

There are a few more retailers outside of ASC, but for the sake of argument I stayed within the AV retailer section. The only difference in methodology this time is instead of averaging prices, the lower was noted.

Results here:


Lower end guns have not been included by personnal preference, but they are available at a higher import cost. The final cost will still be lower, but because of the higher margin, it is usually better to go for the top tier items.

Finally, after 2 years of interest in airsoft and being a minor I went in to get AV'd recently and judging by that list, It was definitely worth it. For any minor who is an impatient bug, all I gotta say is "More for me."
