Default Amazon won't ship airsoft BB's to Kalistan.

I bought an airsoft pistol the other day. I tried to place an Amazon order for 5,000 airsoft pellets and got a message they were a prohibited item for my location. WTF? Plastic BB's? It's gotten THAT bad here?

That's pretty ridiculous, considering I ordered lead airgun pellets a few months back.

I just received these a few days ago.

Maybe it's a chinese manufacturer with no prop 65 labels on the packaging?

Prop 65, for your safety.

Try buying these and see what happens at checkout.

I get this message:

Amazon is anti-gun. Giving them your money, makes you anti-gun.

Just picked up a Marauder a few weeks ago on Amazon. I wonder if it's an Amazon issue or if the BBs you're buying are being restricted at the vendor level.

Amazon won't ship a Red Ryder BB gun anywhere in CA as far as I can tell. I guess I'll just put together another featureless AR-15.

It probably has nothing to do with being anti gun and everything to do with Prop 65 labeling.

Alternate theory: the California legislature is stupid.

Choose the one that makes the most sense.

I don't pick sides. I'm not a big fan of amazon and certainly not a big fan of California. There are hundreds of other businesses willing to sell you the same product. Some websites will even sell you products otherwise illegal in CA such as banned paint or chemical formulas, or the humble BB.

No Prop 65 labeling = can not be legally shipped to CA.

Amazon will not sell airguns nor BB's to California.
Amazon will allow other sellers on their site sell airguns or BB's to California.
Too bad because some airguns Amazon sells are low priced.

I literally just bought a Umarex Glock 19 BB Air Pistol, a box of CO2 carts, and a batch of steel BB's this afternoon. It was sold and shipped by Amazon. It's with the carrier and it will be delivered tomorrow.
