1.violate any law, statute, ordinance or regulation.

2.relate to transactions involving (a) narcotics, steroids, certain controlled substances or other products that present a risk to consumer safety, (b) drug paraphernalia, (c) items that encourage, promote, facilitate or instruct others to engage in illegal activity, (d) stolen goods including digital and virtual goods (e) items that promote hate, violence, racial intolerance, or the financial exploitation of a crime, (f) items that are considered obscene, (g) items that infringe or violate any copyright, trademark, right of publicity or privacy or any other proprietary right under the laws of any jurisdiction, (h) certain sexually oriented materials or services, (i) ammunition, firearms, or certain firearm parts or accessories, or (j) ,certain weapons or knives regulated under applicable law."

Why care about PayPal? Lots of places sell ammo by credit card, deal with them instead.

I buy various reloading dies and related things off ebay and pay by paypal all the time. I've never had a problem. However, ebay does not list any ammo or components.

Ebay and PayPal are sister companies. If I recall correctly, you can't buy anything on Ebay which is required in firing a firearm. For example you can't use PayPal or Ebay to buy or sell reloading components, parts such as firing pins. You can use PayPal to pay for holsters, grips, molds etc.

Hope this helps.
