Re: Iron Curtain on Exports T/F
Do some research on ITAR. The range of products covered is very broad and it seems more gets added all the time. Not sure who is in charge of adding items, congress or the president ?
Has anyone noticed the warnings that Berger bullets are now subject to ITAR restrictions ?
For many of us who don't plan a trip outside the US this may all be irrelevant. But now you can't take your Berger reloads to Canada for example ? Or your Vortex scope, or the 20MOA picatinny scope base ? But a rifle is OK if you get the paperwork straightened out beforehand ? Its all pretty odd.
"Friendly" countries will still be able to get these items, since the manufacturer can prepare paperwork for an entire container load of the product, whereas if you or I wanted to "export" your scope or bullets to Canada for a hunting trip each item would attract several hundred $ of fees and permit applications and who knows how many months to get processed. And if you take one miss-step, you potentially go to jail...
