So I was looking at Oshoot and they have some interesting stuff, but the seemingly random prices make me question if they are legit, and if buying from them is safe.

I know they are listed as one of the Canadian suppliers but again I am curious to hear from folks more recently.

Below is just one example of many. Are they drop shippers or something like hero outdoors?

Yep they're legit. He has a contract or deal with air venturi/pyramydair.com to be there proxy here in Canada. Maybe he'll explain but I think he brings in an order every week from Air Venturi and then ships it out to customers. That way he can sell anything that is legal in Canada off the pyramydair.com website, including high power stuff pyramydair.com won't ship up here, without having to actually stock it himself.
That's my understanding anyway.
Not sure what the two prices are about.

Yes, Wes mentioned it all. I bought several times from Oshoot too. It's convenient for ppl can't (or don't want to) go over to the States to bring guns back in.

However the website is not very user friendly.... I learnt to find the item you want, and copy the Pyramids item number and input into Oshoot's search bar to go to the local page directly....

Ie. The PY-1899-8724 on the bottom of my screen shot below....

I once asked Pyramyd Air about Oshoot. They told me they never heard of them. I advised that they claim to be a Canadian reseller for Pyramyd. They said no. When I asked if they had reseller in Canada, they directed me to Air Gun Source.

Go figure?

But regardless of if they are an "official" reseller or not, they seem to have a large selection of goods for order.

Since they don't actually stock any inventory, can anyone comment on the amount of time it takes to receive an order from them? If they are ordering from Pyramyd & then has to send it out to you, does it take a couple of weeks?

I ask this because it seems like delivery of my orders from the other Canadian online sellers (Replica, D&L, Airgun&Archery, CSS, Cabela's & AGS), seem to be getting faster. Now seem to be less than one week. Sometimes only a couple of days.

Also, have they cleared up the computer problems they were having in charging the incorrect taxes on orders outside of Ontario?

In the first week, Oshoot will collect the order and take them from Pyramid which usually arrive in Oshoot the second week. Then oshoot will ship that out to you as normally like other sellers here with stock in hand.

So there will be at least one extra week of delivery time you will be expecting...

Oshoot is good for buying the replacement parts and special items you want fron Pyramids...

I guess that's the big thing for me. I am still struggling to find what I am looking for at any of the local shops and maybe just too impatient to wait on my pal but even still for that indoor area I have a lot of extra limits to work around (Chief of which is the .177 sub 500fps)

I agree a lot of the prices on the site seem to be sort of plucked from thin air. But I guess if I can find something I like, and get the right random price... as long as a new rifle of matching description shows up at my door I am cool with it haha!

The Daisy 753 for 350$ is the only gun I could use for the indoor range from them sadly.

Still very frustrated trying to find something I could use indoor and outdoor

This one and several others are in stock at D&L.
These are very good quality air rifles.

Have a run through their lineup for guns in stock, Luna. I would
very much rather have a Weirhauch, than something from Daisy.

PyramydAir also directed me towards AirGunSource.

You can also buy directly from PyramydAir with a nice shipping and brokerage fees. :wink:
