I have never visited their web site in the past or solicited any direct response material from this organisation.
The weapons being offered to me are manufactured in Taiwan and are are posted Internationally by a Company called ParedeSports, whose only conditions of sale for the revolver was the production of a document such as a license or passport that shows that the person ordering the guns are 18.

The Company claims on their web site that the shipped weapon “Is not a hunting weapon. It is intended for the practice of shooting sports”.
One condition states that “It can not be transported by spare parts and without proper packing in the original carton or appropriate case”.
