Popped into the Army and Navy on Columbia street in New Westminster to check out pellet selections.

Looks like they have pulled ALL pistols out of the display cases.

They had a few rifles located WAY behind the service counter, hard to see what they had.

Used to carry range of Uramex.Crosman pistols , like Steel Storm, Colt 1911's, etc etc
Now nothing but RWS and Daisy pellets, C02's etc

I suspect this may be due the raid on Westley Military Surplus for blank firing pistols which the RCMP and other offences.

BTW Westley Military Surplus has re-opened under new management, I went to go in but it was closed on a Monday morning for some reason.

Anyone know whats going on?

Cheers,

Jeff

Well darn. That stinks. I was just going to head out there this week to re-stock on Diabolo Basic pellets. Down to just a tin and a half. Back to searching for a supplier yet again... how irritating.

When did Army Navy and Sears stop selling firearms in Canada or BC?

Did CT or home hardware ever sell powder burners?

Cheers,

Our local Home Hardware sold PBs back in the 90s and they just started selling them again a few years ago due to there being no other place in town that has guns or ammo.
