Hi guys,
I am new here.I am interested in getting a walther cp99compact (C$167 all in..)and it seems cheaper than a walther ppk/s for $178(all in) in canadian tire,Markham.
The link is: ... 23307d7c22


The trouble is i don't seem to know where the exact location is for "gunsnthings"..they have an email address and a website but no phone number,address,etc.
In addition,is it a german company that sends things over or is it really located in Canada?
I just wanna be careful as it is my first purchase!
Thanks guys!

Here is another good place where to buy Walther pistol.
But i think that you are better off buying localy due shipping charges and if you have to return the product it is easier and cheaper to deal with your local store.
That is just my personal experience and opinion.

Hi under500fps,
Thanks for the info. I went to LeBaron this morning and the customer service was horrible.At 0930 in the morning,the special room where the guns were housed was literally empty.
I went in,nodded to the 3 salesperson inside and proceeded to look around.There was no greeting whatsovever and they seemed pretty busy so i did not disturb them.There were lots of rifles but no pistols.
Eventually i had to ask if there was any air guns like the Walther and Crosman and one of the salesman with white hair and slightly bald in front ,grunted a reply and showed me the catalogue.It has photocopied pages that were so bad,one can hardly read anything nor see what the guns look like.
Next i asked him if there were any walther or crosman in stock and he said no.I pointed to a few like the walther cp99compact and he said there were none left and i had to order to get them.Later on,he said,the stock is not definite and he does not know when it will come.He was extremely unhelpful and was a real grouch. One more thing,he said that they don't carry ball bearings for the air guns i mentioned but only pellets!Jeeees,why should i buy the cp99compact if it uses BB and i can't get the BB right?C'mon,i ain't stupid as i did my research and some guns take both pellets and BB.When i showed him a gun in the catalogue that takes both,he acted stupid and he knew i had him.He then said,BB are bad for air guns.JEEEEEEES!
I rather take my business elsewhere.By the way,they had a warning:All purchases are final.No refunds nor exchanges.So i doubt i can return the product if it was a manufacturing defect.
I will try some place else like CTire whenever they sell the cp99compact.Anywhere else in Toronto?
Thanks guys and be careful when you go to teh Markham store!
