If you’re looking for a niche that can be fun and is good for beginners, Airsoft or BB guns are a good choice. BB guns are a good place to start because there are so many different kinds of products in this category.
There are sales and conversions in this niche, but it is a risky item to sell. Because they can be dangerous, different countries have different rules about them. This means that you have to find a reliable manufacturer to be sure of the quality, and you can only sell them in countries where they are legal.
I’m going to help you with this. Here are some suppliers you can think about from the US, Canada, and China.
DP & Company
DP & Company is the first company on our list. They are based in Central Florida and have been in the supplier business for more than 25 years, making them one of the industry’s veterans. This is also the state’s favorite place to buy wholesale goods because the items are of good quality and the prices are low.
When it comes to their catalog, they don’t have a main focus. They sell many different kinds of tools and equipment, items for the home and garden, decorations for the home, weapons, sports equipment, metal signs, and, of course, BB guns.
Here are some other things that might happen with airsoft:
- Goggles and masks for airsoft are
- Aims at handguns and rifles that are powered by electricity
- Guns that run on gas
- Guns with licenses (rifles, pistols, and shotguns)

Before you can place an order on their website, you have to make an account so they can keep better track of what you buy. This will also make sure that both parties are telling the truth. All orders must be at least $100, not counting taxes and shipping costs.
