The world's gun shop

From the US Department of Justice press statement regarding the indictment of two US citizens for involvement in a failed coup in The Gambia --

Prior to departing for The Gambia, between August and October 2014, Faal and other co-conspirators purchased multiple firearms, including M4 semi-automatic rifles, and shipped them to The Gambia for use in the coup attempt. Members of the conspiracy also acquired night-vision goggles, body armor, ammunition, black military style uniform pants, boots, and other personal equipment.

All these purchases appear to have been legal.
