Hi,
I want to buy a Airsoft Gun, but shiping it's only in U.S. and I don't live in U.S. so I need some one who can buy me one and send here and I'll send the money...


If you are interested e-mail me to:

Good Luck
Ya know some possibly would, however i think perhaps letting peeps know what Calibre and Country - i mean the UK nothing over .23 is allowed even then without Live Ammo and requires a Licence.
who'd wanna pay a fine or serve time cause you wanted a gun eh?
lol not to put ya off or anything but ya know, i'm pretty sure getting a weapon outside of the US isn't gonna be one of the easiest tasks right now

i have a Mesuu RN-P90
wasn't cheap though $380, extra rounds are like $50each which actually isn't too bad.
if i want live ammo then i need it specially made, cause its designed for a particular kinda of Blank (Mesuu) ... suppose to be the same version they use on SG-1 from what i've heard

Perhaps Rage just wanted someone to import a picture of a gun.

If not, he/she/it would have a fun time getting past customs...

Yes, I really am THAT good...

If I'd buy a gun, should be a shotgun... I loved to use one in RE

My favourite shotgun is the franchi spas. It's urban looking, big, and looks like it should be on a SWAT team or something.

Sorry guys I'm NOT looking for a real gun (I get one here and register the weapon easy like in U.S.).

I'm searching for Airsoft Gun ($40 or less), something like "Berettas", "Colts" or "DE Magnum" models.

http://www.airsoftpro.net

Please I need a Yankee who can sell it(Outside US), or other country if you have a cheap Airsoft guns store near.

have you asked them if they would ship it?

or even, why they do not ship it?

Guns + Customs do not mix well

The Outside is a evil place to be, too much light, too much noise and too many distractions....
I went outside once and my FPS rate dropped to 5.

why do you resent the word yankee? its your people's name. Just like a brit is called a brit, and a frog is called a frog. (can you believe that since we started calling the french frogs, they nicknamed us "rost bif"? what wrong with roast beef? its no frog).

What's the problem with Yankee ? If you like "U.S. people".
(Yankee is a ancient word used to people from York or New York ...I think ¿?)

someone i know dislikes the term Yank... likes to be known as a Usian (bloody wierd guy :\)
i don't like being called a Brit myself thou - prefer to be called English, i never really liked the name British - what makes it worse is i'm not even sure where in history that word came from!?

Oh well ya know they make ALOT of Airsoft weapons in France - i'd suggest you not check the internet, and actually check shops... most countries have gunshops and such for them. However really thinking about it, just get yourself a REAL gun and buy blanks - same bloody different

i think Brit derived from Briton which we was called a very very long time ago (when AOE2 was around )

yeah but why was it called Briton smartass?
i have a memory of some king to that effect, but i dunno.
i'm still baffled about how Wales became part of the United Kingdom, i mean i remember how the Scots we're - after all those years of fighting it was out of nessesity of requiring a King to stop the government taking full control... and i know that the welsh we're tricked into it, with a son (which is where Prince Charles got his denotion as the Prince of Wales) however i dunno ... i'm sure it can't have been just this century that they joined.
But then again the UK flag is just really the Scotish and English flags combined

pretty cool thou, i mean two seriously powerful nations joining like that (^_^)

ShockForge, you reminded me of a quote.

PLEASE realise that this is not an act of racism, I quote verbatim...

"Apparently people are nicknamed by what their nation eats, so the French are frogs, we're roast beef and America is fat" - Angus Deayton, Have I Got News For You.

Raven Vegeta, thanks for the compliment, but when I go abroad, I try to make sure people know I'm Scottish and not British. We Scots tend to be friendly in other countries, and get involved with their cuture and language. Again, I want to make it clear that I'm not a racist, but the stereotypical Brit abroad speaks plain English and acts as if their hosts are stupid because they don't know their language. It makes me sick really, that someone would actually do that. When a foreigner realises that I'm Scottish, and especially when I'm talking to them in their own language, I gain a lot of respect. This goes well in France in particular, as we're old allies. It creates a tremendous sense of well-being. I have even studied Chinese traditions at the dinner table, and when the staff realise that I'm keeping to their traditions in my own country, they become very respectful. I'm not vain, it just feels good to connect with someone.

The word British extends from the britons. Anyone played Age of Empires 2?
Our equivalent would be the celts.

This has "Fiasco" written all over it.
