I collect toy and replica firearms. I'm looking for any of the Airsoft
guns or rifles in any condition (except horribly disfigured, i'd like
them to be relatively displayable).

I'm also in the market for any realistic toy guns or rifles (no neon
or red tipped toys though :)

If you have anything you'd like to sell, drop me an email.

Thanks,
Brian Workman

it is

Airsoft could be called an alternative to paintball,and are used
for tactical simulation for law enforcement.The guns are basically
replicas of real firearms that shoot little *** balls at around
300 fps. I have heard that there are airsoft fields like the are
paintball fields. So i would accept this as a appropriate post.
I have found some links on the subject. Expensive but sure looks
neat. Look around and you will find replicas and airsofts of every
concivable type. Even a airsoft Aliens Marine gun. Very neato!

In the early days, Tippmann was a replica and miniature firearms
producer.

I believe in the state of California, it's illegal for me to sell you any of
my airsoft guns.  (I could be wrong though, my knowledge of the law is mostly
hearsay)
I do have several that I "smuggled" over from my trips to Korea though, three
glock 17's, a SIG Sauer P226 and a...get this...AutoMag .44
I didn't dare try to bring over the motorized M-16...too big.
I also have a vial of "paintballs" for these airsoft guns, they're bright pink
and leave what would be considered "splatter" on you when you're hit.

Sell 'em!!!

There's a couple of retail stores, here in CA, so you shouldn't have any problem.
Especially since it's a private transaction!

You're not like registering the serial #'s with your Sheriff are you?  ;-)

Dave

p.s.  I have heard how one place gets them through customs:  They mark the boxes
"REPLICA TOY GUN" and put a copy of the...whatever law it is...right inside the
box for customs to see.  No problem!  :-)

        I still remember back in '91. I was checking into LAX after my
flight from Seoul, and I had a bag with an M16A1, two MP5's, and two S&W
M645's. Airport security then confiscated them, and told me that I'd
probably get killed for displaying it in public. (thank you for thinking
of my safety, and simultaneously insulting my intelligence.)
        The saddest thing, however, was that, two aisles down, another
Korean family had a bag filled with guns, 2 ingrams, at least 12 other
guns. The kids were bawling. The combined cost of those guns was probably
in the realm of $800.00.
        The worst thing is that the airport police that confiscated my
guns were so stupid and goofy about it. One policeman shot one of my
M645's, firing a pellet out into the hall. The rather fat and ugly woman
that was with him grinned and took it away from him. They would not reason
with me.
        I am still very bitter and disappointed about that episode, and it
was just about the only time I've ever had "the man" take away my
freedom to bear...toys. Fear us evil asians...

Back to my unreliable source of California Gun laws, (my old screenwriting
professor) it's considered a felony to own (or was it carry?) a "realistic"
toy handgun, whereas I'd be charged with a misdemeanor to be caught with a
concealed real version of the same handgun?  I'm too lazy to look up the
California Gun Codes so if i'm wrong on this, don't waste the keystrokes
flaming me.

Talk about stupid laws.

As for your "armory" that you attempted to bring in,  Daayam boy, you gots
balls...From what I recall, I wasn't even stopped at U.S. Customs, the guy
just waved me through.  But $800 worth of guns?  Sheesh...I think I paid an
average of $12 for each of my PlastiGlocks and the SIG, the AutoMag was only a
couple dollars more.  

If anyone is thinking of going to Korea to buy these little guns, go now since
the value of the won is what, half of what it was before the bailout?  These
guns are going for $6 bucks or so.  

I gotta work on keeping these posts shorter...
