Come on Alaska!
« on: February 10, 2020, 10:27:21 PM »
Airguns are growing by leaps and bounds and offer a great way to practice, hunt small game and varmints, or just plink quietly in your backyard. We really need to get it going in Alaska!

The biggest problem is shipping.. crosman wonít ship pcps to us.. most of the people down in the lower 48 wonít even ship to us.  Kenai stores donít carry any pcps. Anchorage only has .25 marauder or a game urban..

I got a marauder shipped to me free from Amazon up here a few years back, and just picked up the FX Impact. Quite a few other companies ship airguns to Alaska. I understand your frustration though, I deal with it constantly and have to go out of my way to find shipping options. There is a new dealer opening up in the valley that will carry Air Force Airguns, Higher end Gamo's and likely adding more soon.

Try ATI, they might ship the Nova up there to y'all, it's a better gun than the MRod and cheaper...

Kasilof airgunner here. I just bought an airgun off of eBay. I told the seller I would pay extra for UPS shipping.  his reply he does not ship UPS or FedEx lo and behold he ships it out today USPS. Now I'm a little concerned if I won't get busted by the USPS or something like that.. or will the gun make it with no problems I hope so . I wish we had a quality airguns store in south-central Alaska ordering online can be Troublesome any thoughts

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.
