Fairbanks here. Shipping is certainly a challenge, particularly with stores that have tie-ins with specific shippers. Companies with free shipping are always ground shipping, which is fine in the Lower 48 but doesn't work to Alaska [or Hawaii]. Sometimes, but rarely, some nice person in shipping will send products by USPS flat rate boxes, but even then those boxes won't fit a rifle. That said, almost everything can eventually be acquired if you are willing to wait and to pay a premium.
With the onset of winter I am starting to shoot 10M pistol and rifle inside. The LP10 will be used for postal matches on Target Talk. The rifles are just for fun [FWB 300S, Beeman 400, and FWB 602]. Probably won't be shooting PCP rifles for awhile.
