You need some sort of Film/performing arts industry license saying you are importing them to use as props in a production (or that you are a company who rents them to productions for use)

lol, for some reason... that sounds easier then aquiring an FBL and opening a gun shop :P so i guess thats why A&A says that they only do rentals on their home page... that discouraged me from bussiness at first, but now whats discouraging me is that 007 airsoft is, if only slightly, cheaper

So we're paying for their licenses? Through the mark up, which includes money for profit and for their licensing of ~$2000 per year? Wouldn't it be easier for everyone to just donate money to our two retailers, say $10-$20 per member per year, an annual fee for age verification, then we wouldn't have prices marked up as much?

Or am I missing something? Obviously retailers need profit, it's not a charity they're organizing, it's a business. But if the community can help pay for retailer's licenses, would that make prices any cheaper? Somebody please correct me

Learn how supply and demand works. Then once you have that figured out take into account retailers of airsoft have a max number of airsoft guns they are allowed in stock which is usually less than demand. You should see where I am going with this.

lol, sadly, i, like him, do not know much about laws, but then again, i do not plan on opening a bussiness or anything, so i guess it dont matter, all i really need to know legally, is what i can and cannot do with it, and where im allowed to buy it from..

u think ill stick to ken... 007 airsoft, they have a nice selection from what i can see, and decent prices, i use to think they were both rip offs, until i found out that its not legal to import here without a bunch of bullshit, now i can better appreciate the shit these guys gotta go through to get our guns...
