"Opening our store at one of the busiest airports in the country is a natural step on the way to become closer to our clients and to attract new consumers for our products." ~ Dmitriev

Vladimir Dmitriev, head of the Russian company's marketing department, expressed that they are very excited to have opened their first store in such a popular place. While you can't get any replica guns past security in your carry-on, once you get past the checkpoint you are welcome to purchase one in the store. It is important to note that the guns are simply replicas, but it makes for a strong point given the location.
