My buddy is trying to drop ship a bunch of Colonial Brown Bess and Henry Martini MK 1 parts kits assembled on mock receivers...please don't ask, long story about import laws...
I can't get a single one shipped here?
For him to have someone receive, break down, reship them and just send me the parts kits (totally legal here in WI for the alone kits without receivers) would negate the profit margin...
Why do we have this obsolete law?
I think cottage grove still has a silly nongun law on the books.
Put an orange cap on them if you feel you must.
I know you can still buy a coon skin hat and a fake ass Davy Crockett rifle in the Dells.
Rubber band guns airsoft..soft air.. squirt guns..blue and orange training hand guns..bb guns pellet guns...dart guns.pop guns..cap guns..and just plain old TOY GUNS TOO.
I restore historic military vehicles, run them in parades in downtown's all over Wisconsin.
Sometimes the mounted weapons are real most times dummy guns.
Ar's.. m60's..m2hb's. Saws. 1911's grenades..launchers..Garands .. Tommy guns.. m1 carb..
1917' rifles and revolvers..1903's..
You get the picture.
But who knows.
Maybe there watching..
