Meh, I have enough guns for my playing, and redundancy among them as well (like, almost duals of everything).

Me, I'm just sitting back, going by what Miles says (I trust him) and am not crying or getting freaked out. Guess that skill comes with age.

I think the vast majority of us already have guns for playing, my sadness is because this going to make it much harder to get new players into the sport if we lose yet another line of access to guns.

True, am aware of that, am concerned if this entire thing is real, or just isolated (chances of that are high) but as far as I'm concerned (based upon my own experience having never bought a gun from a retailer) for at least a few years there will be people entering the sport and other leaving the sport and selling off their kit. So for a while new players might have to resort to either waiting to get into the game with gear, or pick something they don't really want in order to play and wait for something they really want to be sold. Lack of retailers in the country actually selling new imported guns won't kill us for a few years, but a crack down on parts and such happens (as well as guns and ammo), that WILL eventually stop us ALL from playing.

Yea, I got my first gun from ASCA a week ago yesterday. I was trying to get some more buddies into it, but alas, supplies are drying up

I think at somepoint someone or a few people, with experience in these matters, have to step upto the plate and see what can or cannot be done to help this currently dwindling sport if we don't want it to dry out in the next couple of years.

Hey Grey, I wonder if with that license would we be able to get a better channel for imports? Perhaps a class for a retailer perhaps that has to follow certian channels that any real steel fire-arms merchant has too?


I never looked into importing guns from outside the country. I know you need to purchase a permit to bring your fire-arms across the border. Did a few huntin' trips down to the States. Came up with just waiting till I get there and borrow a light rifle off a family member down there... SO much easier. But what about importing on your own?

She fully agreed that this would make a lot of sense AND be workable.
Count me in on this option, I like it. That way if they mess up it affects their PAL and future possibility of ever owning a real gun.

I like the idea of a PAL aswell. IMO everybody using anything similar to a firearm should get the course anyway.

Now with a PAL option avaliable....would that enable international orders....or do they not have anything in common?

I'll read more....

Now is this the time we as a community discuss getting together to find a solution. Those of you in the east seem to have more information, who and how do we decide to let speak for us. I don't think it will help to have dozens of people running around with half information talking to representatives. I personally don't know the laws, so I will have to trust those how do. But who are the proper people who do know?
