Placed my third order this week - two tins of pellets and some parts for my Crosman project. Just look at this, this is how to pack pellets, in fact there was more packaging in the box than stuff! It wasn't just these expensive R10 either, there was a tin of cheapo Hobby underneath packed the same way.
They also reply to my enquries by email very quickly, offer helpful advice and put some spare O-ring seals in for free. Also, I was thinking the pellets would be useful for the weekend but decided I did not want to pay extra for UPS but in any case I ordered Tuesday evening, got the Canada Post notifications already that night and the box arrived on Thursday. Fantastic!
I have no affiliation with them but can't recommend them enough and some of their prices are excellent e.g. P17 - my first purchase there.

It is good to know there is a source for such a large variety of items available in Canada. However,,,like convenient stores,,I would only buy from them when I absolutely have to, for the same reason.

Hi Joe, is that a reference to being expensive? They seem to be very fairly priced on their airguns and parts prices are comparable to gravel agency or scopesandammo.com, and I've found them very friendly and helpful. I have received quite a few small items like valves and small parts with free shipping, via letter mail. They've been happy to do that, when asked.

For example the QB chief and Maximus are $249 at canadashootingsupply.ca, and the chief is 296 at Oshoot.ca, the Maximus is 269 at airgunsource. The Maximus is a whopping 387 on Oshoot.ca. Dl airgun has some guns a few dollars cheaper and some more expensive, so comparable anyway. Not a whole lot of other options in Canada that I know of, though I freely admit you have a ton more experience and knowledge of airguns than myself. You'll have to share your sources you shop at!

Of course, if one makes their own parts, that can save a lot of money and shipping costs.

I buy most of the custom parts for my 2240 and 1322 from CanadaShootingSupply...only ever had good experiences dealing with him.

I also buy from Scopes and ammo...and airgun source. I tend to shop for best prices and cheapest overall price, including shipping...they all tend to balance out on the final cost...

I also like fast shipping...usually AGS is a day or two faster...but they don't have the stock list that CSS has...so I usually buy from CSS in the end...a day or two extra wait isn't that bad. They more than make up for it with great customer service!

what I meant was, If I can find what Im looking for, cheaper elsewhere, then thats where I shop. So far I have always found what I need , cheaper, elswhere. I only compared the pellet prices, and find their prices outrageous. Compared to Canadian airgunforum store. But as I said, its nice to know they are there.

Canada Shooting Supply is good. Bought my 2 - P17's from them and some Hobby pellets. Was going to ask Airgun Source if they could match the price on P-17's but I did not want to offend so I did not ask. But buy a little from everyone keeps everyone in business hopefully. :wink:
