    Quadcopters & Virtual Reality Anyone?

    If anyone has been to the store recently, you may have noticed that there has been a number of changes. The Guns & Army Surplus are getting ready to be moved to the new building that is almost complete.

    In its place at the 930 6th Ave East location we have added a virtual reality room, along with a section for Drone Sales. We are going to be keeping the websites for the Drones and VR separate from our www.frontierfirearms.ca site. For orders & inquiries please contact Duane at (306) 960-7860, he will be handling this end of the business. Here are a few pictures bellow. Click on the images to view the new website.



    I purchased a Phantom 4 model Drone last month. I would have to say that the enjoyment I have with it is starting to rival the fun I have in shooting! Perhaps they can work together though, looking forward to spring, when I can use it to check my grouping at my 1000 yard range!









    Included in the VR will be shooting, racing, boxing, & Hunting Games.

    Personally I think the prices for the VR rentals are a little high, but you are providing the PC in the full package so I guess it's not too bad. You may also want to use sanitary masks with the headset during rentals if you don't already. It doesn't take long for my Oculus headset padding to soak up sweat.

    Wow I never thought of that. Drone for checking your groups. Way too handy and fun at the same time

    I really want a DJI Mavic pro. I'd rather buy it from you then from Best Buy.

    Those drones are awesome. Yet another expensive hobby I could see myself getting into.

    Wouldn’t be less expensive just to install a video transmitter and a VR that will receive that signal?

    A VR experience while flying a Drone. Now that would be cool.
