That online line store is American.The in store Canadian selection is much smaller and you need to show your drivers license to purchase them.

Yeah, I can tell you what to expect!
A bunch of retards who don't know sh** from shinola. Take in a powder burner and you're ok. Take in a springer and you might dazzle them a little. Take in a pcp and they're like deer caught in headlights. With that effect, expect to be treated like the DHS just found a mini nuke in your backpack.

Bass could offer me a hummer and 50% off everything and I still wouldn't go back.

I can add to that. I once made the human error of going to the gun counter and asking one of the more experienced, older gentlemen there (not the high school drop outs that roam the floor) where I could find mounts for a picatinny/weaver rail. I got a resounding "we don't do anything tactical here" in a way that it made me feel like I was some sort of criminal that dared touch these evil devices.

Whatta dumbass. And that's not the only unpleasant experience I got from them. I wasted a great deal of time when I a couple of weeks prior had gone to the same counter and explained I'd like to order an item from their website (yes, the US one as there's no Canadian site). Was told that if I was fill a form that they'd have it delivered to their store and it wouldn't cost me anything. Great, I was sure I'd be getting this nifty little pack of red dot, flashlight, laser, for only a couple of bucks more than the listed US price.

2 weeks go by and I get a call from them. Was so excited to hear my package had arrive. Wrong. It was some high school drop out, or as Handyguy puts it, one of their retards telling me that they cannot import the item I was assured they'd have no problems getting when I went to the counter and filled up the paperwork 2 weeks earlier.

Bottom line: don't waste your time. Their selection of airguns is sad. They sell a couple of Crosman air rifles such as the M4-177 for a high price and obviously not a single accessory for it as GOD FORBID this gun uses a picatinny rail. If the above isn't incentive enough to stay away, hehe try their prices for CO2. Highest price in town, even higher than Whole Sports.

Will Capella be any better when they open next year? I doubt it. Based on what I've seen they too have inflated prices.

Have you tried Erie Trackers? They are newer into gun shop but the couple dealings I have had for guns has been ok. I think they are just delving into airguns last couple of years. My buddy is working on the Bass Proshop building. I;ll ask him if he heard the open date. He just sold them a whack of mounts for display.

Erie is fairly decent but pricey (e.g $14.99 for RWS Hobbies no joke!) great bunch of guys but i cant justify the prices... Ill buy my bait there and ammo will be bought online ;) Sadly thats the only place to get "quality" ammo round here unless your content with Crosmans at C.T or wally-world...
