Default Unable to purchase anymore

Since the UK banned handguns,I have been getting my S&Ws & Rugers etc from Germany,Needing a new S&W 686,with a 6" barrel, & a Ruger Redhawk KRH 44,I sent my order & was told SORRY. The US State dept has decread that US firearms cannot be re -exported from the country originally exported too.IF I apply to ATF , pay 250$ for each one, and wait 6 months,I MIGHT get the ok to purchase one item at a time,depending if they are in a good mood that day or not.If they refuse,I still lose the $250.I can buy some pretty good semi-auto pistols from Europe,but they have nothing ( except Korth @ $6,000 a time) as good as a US made S&W etc etc.I am quite happy to spend my cash on your products, which would keep people in work,but they wont let me anymore.

That stinks. But, the elected officials in the UK made the law. Germany looks to be going the same way. See this new thread in the legal section.

Sounds like your gubmit needs an overhaul, too.

Maybe you and kdog should start some sort of trade business. I kid, of course.

Kinda makes you wonder how the two armed robbers that hit that jewelry store got those guns. Surely they didn't break the law to be able to break the law.
