I live in Vancouver, and i've already bought a few airguns from the website replicaairguns.com

The thing is though, they charge quite a bit of shipping. ($15 to be exact)

I was wondering if any airgun enthusiasts in Vancouver can recommend me some retail stores that sell air guns in Vancouver? I know Canadian Tire, Walmart, and Army & Navy sell airguns, but i'm trying to expand my choices.

Thanks!


PS: If you can also recommend websites that have free (or really cheap) shipping to Canada, that would be great!

Many of the American Air Gun stores ship free in USA. You could pick up in Port Roberts and bring across the border. Declare and pay duty on items. I live in a border community and do it all the time. You need your PAL if the gun is over 500. You can't import restricted weapons.

Replica AirGuns site says the store is located in Vancouver. Is it possible to physically go to the store and buy direct?

No, Replica Air Guns doesn't have a retail store. Online orders only, unfortunately. Although i've dealt with them numerous times in the past and they have great customer service. The guy who created the website, Michael Kaye, even has his own Youtube channel where he reviews like 90% of the guns he sells on the site.

So, do you guys know of any airgun retail stores in the Vancouver area? or possibly websites with free shipping to canada?

You'll never see free shipping to Canada! We are 34 million vs the US and 320 million people. The US has better buying power.

AND you'll still have to pay12% tax plus broker fees from UPS and FedEx! Your just gonna have to suck it up and buy Canadian like we all do on this board!

I was just seeing if anyone knew of a website that offered free shipping, if it was at all possible that a website would offer free shipping in Canada. Although, recently, i've come to the realization that there might not even be any. Approximately $15+ shipping on every order I make can quickly add up, and any amount of money that I can save would be great. I see your point though.

Reliable on Fraser between 16th and 17th has a couple of airguns. Haven't been there in a while (though it's 4 blocks from me) but last I saw they had a Turkish-made Webley Tempest and some Umarex over lever cocking thing, I think. And a few break-barrel air rifles. Mostly a firearms store though. They have a few kinds of pellets as well.

Replica Airgun's flat shipping rate of $15 is the best rate I've seen in Canada. So is their 30-day, store-replacement warranty.

You're not going to find much interesting from local stores, and certainly not at any attractive prices. You can probably get a gun cheaper with shipping from replicaairguns than you can locally from camouflage or Gorilla Surplus or some place.

Amazon.ca has free shipping. Since you're in Vancouver, ordering from Amazon USA and shipping to a receiver in Point Roberts or Blaine is an option that I have done myself and can recommend. The selection is quite good and the prices are lower than what you can find here. Usually the savings from the lower prices at Amazon USA are already enough to cover the costs of your fuel and any parcel receiving fees, but add to that any savings you get from filling up your fuel tank on your car and buying other things like dairy products or booze and the trip will have you coming way out on top.
