90 day hold

#1 Post by Christel »

Pretty sure you all are aware the the USA (Biden Administration) has put a hold on export for all firearms related components for 90 days.

This is to determine if the components are ending up in the 'wrong' hands...despite all retailers and end users are vetted to the nth degree.

The 90 days could easily be extended and it being decided that say the UK is not vetted enough to receive components, be that scopes or say Lapua, yes I know they are Finnish however a lot of the production comes out of the USA.

There is an enormous anti gun attitude at the moment.

By the time 90 days passes he'll have forgotten all about it!

You're assuming he will still be alive in 90 days.

"There is an enormous anti gun attitude at the moment."

Might just have something to do with events in Ukraine, Gaza, and the middle east in general........?

I expect as much.

Serbia did the same for a month or two, to build up their own stores due to 'regional tensions'. https://balkaninsight.com/2023/07/06/be ... st-serbia/
