IIRC, Echigoya's interest in expanding to the US market came to light either at this year's Shot Show or Shot Show related media (think it may have been an Evike coverage video... but I could be mistaken). Though I heard they were still looking into opening a US based store/warehouse, not sure if they already did.
There's really no point in trying to import any airsoft guns directly from Japan as their legal fps limit which I think are dictated by their Firearm and Sword Possession Control Law, is no where close to anything we can legally import anyways.
On the bright side, hopefully this means easier access to some rare and hard to find Japanese produced gear... there's a good number of awesome soft goods like a viper hood and a desert night camo jacket I'd love to get my hands on.
Just your friendly neighborhood narcissist gearwhore.
