The last time I checked, Shootsoft's prices were not much lower than A&A and 007 used to be. I guess you guys most be talking about people selling in the classifieds or thru word of mouth.

When shootsoft first appeared, their prices were better compared to A&A. Then there was a increase of $25 on most AEGs, and the shipping went to a flat rate of $40, which pushed up the price enough (at least on pistols and SMGs) to not make it such an attractive deal as the original prices did.

They're still cheaper than what A&A were charging for the same products, at least in terms of the lower end stuff like JG. When it came to full-size AEGs and big guns like M249s, where $40 shipping was about on par or a bit cheaper with A&A for the same item. But for small guns like SMGs and especially pistols, that put the price up there to within $20 of the cost of the same gun from A&A. They're still cheaper, but not by a whole lot. Still, it's a supply of guns and shootsoft have built a decent reputation in their short time in business. I'm glad to have them around, even though I haven't made a purchase from them yet.

But yes, the classifieds is what I think Brian and the rest of us were referring to. We're seeing a lot of lower end guns at really good prices, unlike the inflated price A&A and 007 have / had them listed at, and seeing some nice TM and other brand name guns coming in at much better prices than either A&A or 007. Granted, we don't have the same wide selection as with the retailers, but at least there are still guns that are readily available for decent prices.

Frankly... I have not bumped up against any import issues..Ever, every gun I ever wanted I had within a month of starting to look for it. and I never buy used.

I just purchased a GBB, and have 2 more coming next week..I simply don't understand people complaining about access to guns..

If you are verified.. it is really no issue... all it takes is cash and keeping your ear to the ground.

TBH i don't mind how they come in really.....i trust that the small scale retailers involved with this forum know what they are getting themselves into and do things as by the book as they can.

As someone stated above, only thing now would be to see some higher end stuff comming in, but hey...no complaints....if we can get JG's in and then metal body kits, we are set.....
