If you are a business then ACT like a business!
Dude, your talking about buying a real gun... that is WAY different than airsoft... WAY different.
and a 300% markup? sounds almost right... but its not ALL profit...
There are many hidden costs beside the gun cost.
-Duties & taxes
-A little to pay off their permits/license
All those are added in before the importer can add on a small markup to have a profit.
