The method was there before. The bulk of retailers were already selling black guns (but you wouldn't know, like I said, because you only see a fraction of the bigger picture). And even with the Safesoft guns pistols aren't covered, so partially clear guns are still required on that front. Not to mention there's a significant price difference.
Retailers like Ken (007airsoft) that have been around a long time aren't idiots; he knows the score and if he's still bringing them in he has good reason to.
Having access to an inexpensive, decent quality, partially clear gun like 007 sells is a much better alternative for new players than some crappy BuyAirsoft or Walmart gun.
