Revelations Ch 23:1

And the Lord spoke unto the masses, 'I am disappointed in thy tithings to my church.' The people replied, 'O Lord! Our money hath been tied up in an airsoft scam for many years since!' The Lord was silent most lengthily, and when He again spoke unto the trembling masses, His voice loomed with enough foreboding energy to power Las Vegas for a thousand years, the sound of His Heavenly Rolodex flipping, "What is that motherfuckers' name again?"

I'm mad. I want my gun.

Can we actually sue him or something if he dosen't send them or refund us? Since we are making him import prohibited goods, isn't that... idk... not exactly legal? I don't know, I'm not good with law.

Funny,

I nearly ordered a TM SR16? from Props Can, and was considering ordering something through him again... Ahh how history repeats itself in so many ways.

I'm pretty sure everyone can get discounts on plane tickets if you book as a group :P

Pay him a nice visit. I recall thats how some local guys got their money back from Props Canada.

People have come and gone from airsoft over the years I would just like to add that if you know anyone who was involved in the original Props Canada fiasco who is no longer involved in airsoft and did not receive a refund that you pass the word along to them that new information has come up.

Not too sure any of you would want the authorities involved in a case where individual was supplying you with not a 100% legal merchandise.
Is it not a bit like going after a guy selling contraband smokes that doesn't deliver on his prepaid shipment?

History has so far shown us with previous cases that the authorities are more concerned with people who violate the terms of their FBL than going after individual hobbyists who may have purchased one or two guns. To date, AFAIK, no individual buyer has been targeted for buying a black gun. Additionally, ownership of black guns isn't illegal and a number of them do not even qualify are replicas.

It should also be noted that this course of action is the result of several days of discussions in how to best handle this situation so that the community can get what they are owed or a refund, not just something that was thrown out from the top of someone's head.

Oh wow, talk about dropping a bomb shell. I sincerely hope this doesn't turn out to be Props Canada fiasco part 2. Hopefully this can all be put to an end finally.

I'm not sure the refund will even cover the legal fees if you want anything done...

well after 30 days the RCMP will be contacted. I highly doubt they will do anything though. I've had 2 unhappy transactions before but they weren't large enough to get their attention. Truth be told, it's extremely easy to get away with this stuff in Canada. Hopefully this can give the public a glimpse of what airsoft is like here in the great north.

Not sure that's how I'd want airsoft to be known.

"hello, police I have information on somebody importing large quantities of a restricted item for resale amongst the populace, whats that, you'll have an officer at my door in 5 minutes to take down my statement, ok."

Yeah... individual deals ain't important but they do care about big things like this.
