I do not appreciate anybody trying to abuse my comments’ section with spam, even if it is gun related. Basic courtesy and professionalism say you contact the site owner first, issue bonafides and ask him/her if it is OK to offer your goods.  Speaking of professionalism, how come I can’t find an email address in your ‘Contact Us’ page?

Dick move.

  1. It’s definitely another scam site. You have to have a minimum of $300 and it only takes “cash app” payments

    Also this is on the site, I think it’s a clue.

    “About Us
    An effect firearm is a gun weapon wanted to utilize a shooting chamber to dispatch typically strong shots, however can besides project stuffed fluid, gas or even charged particles.”

    1. Thanks, Ratus; I didn’t get that far in looking at them. I bailed at the weird product titles.

      One thing to test, would be to try to buy a gun and see if they ask for an FFL A newbie who buys into the whole easier-to-buy-a-gun-than-vote lie might be taken in.

  2. I looked at their website and no way would I buy anything from them. Very odd phrasing in a lot of places … and they bill themselves top-level as an airsoft site but down the page all I see are Glocks. Product descriptions with obvious typos. Etc.

    They might be legit, but I wouldn’t risk it. Even if not a scam, the (lack of) care with which they present to the world would be a warning sign.

  3. One of the handguns they offer is a Cimarron Model 3 Schofield 38 Special, and their asking price is more than $500 below MSRP. I tried to buy it. No mention of FFL, they only take Apple Pay, Venmo, Cash App.
    Their testimonials page has a photo of a guy holding a Hornady bag and a rubber duckie. The text next to it sounds like a poor Google translate.

    I swear I have seen that picture before. A google image search finds the same picture on at least three other scam sites:
    https://discountammostore.com/reviews/
    https://barrelammoshop.com/
    https://armoryanchor.com/

    This looks like a scam.
