For gift cards, you will need to call your gift card provider to add your billing and shipping address to the card prior to placing an order online.
In the event your card is declined due to AVS mismatch, the funds will be placed on hold by the card issuer for about 2-5 business days. (Quick tip: To get your funds released immediately, contact your card issuer/bank.)

Items with the description "Pre-Order estimated date arrival" are not in stock, but you can reserve yours by placing an order and paying for it first.

What is Airsoft? Why Airsoft?
Airsoft is a recreational sport started in the 1970s with games run similar to paintball. Airsoft guns projects 6mm plastic bbs. Airsoft is designed for use in a certified or regulated sporting event or competition, in military or civil defense activities and theatrical productions.
Airsoft guns are NOT bb guns or paintball guns. Airsoft guns do not shoot at dangerous speed and impact like BB guns. Airsoft gained its popularity over paintball because it is more affordable, better looking, more practical, and much cleaner than paintball guns.
Spring, Gas and Electric Airsoft guns?
Spring guns are manual powered Airsoft guns where you fire each round by pulling the bolt into the locking position (like most sniper rifles). They are generally cheaper and meant as collectors' items.
Airsoft gas guns are powered by Co2 cartridge, propane adapter or green gas. They are generally found in the form of pistols where a full size gearbox cannot fit into the frame of the gun.
Airsoft electric Guns (AEGs) are powered in a similar way to a RC car internal, designed for easy troubleshooting, high power and high rate of fire and are the most popular forms of regulated sport event.

What is a spoof email and how to protect your identity?
Spoof emails are sent by 3rd party attempting to trick you into providing your personal and billing information over the internet. The links you click on will look identical to your bank or PayPal's website, only with a different URL. Spoof emails are generally sent with familiar made-up identities such as PayPal, your bank or big online merchants such as Evike.com or Amazon.
How to protect yourself? Spoof emails generally have a familiar made-up sender. General rules of the thumb. NEVER input your password on the internet from a link in an email or pop-up window. If you did, change your password immediately.
