Default Starting a Hobby shop business?

Million Dollar Question of the day!
I live up here in Alaska, and we dont have any hobby shopswithin 450 miles. My question is, if I have a business license, but choose to work from home, serving local customers, and Internet, how do I go about getting distributers to sell to me? I know there are plenty of online only type shops, how are they getting product? Horizon and Great Planes etc will only let you become a c ustomer if you have a store front establishment. So how do people go about getting sig, Goldberg, etc etc etc products, on a wholesale basis?
Thanks for any inputs you might offer.
