That sounds very good making me pay the ITAR fee to produce 380 ACP was what doomed my ammo manufacturing business before it started. That trap alone sent the signal that I wouldn't want to play along.

Just wondering what the NRA had to do with it? The article did seem to just be reporting, not claiming credit, for once.

To be fair Precision, I still think you were vastly underestimating startup costs.

The really big deal about this change to itar, isn't the fee, but the record keeping requirements, which ultimately dwarf the fee in terms of actual business cost.

I know what you are saying. I was so turned off by that tip of the iceberg. I KNEW I would have issues not wanting to rebel against that and the whole salt in the wound thing.

Glad I went in a different direction. Now I am looking to get my FFL for ease of getting guns sent for my writing stuff. Should be much less of a nightmare than ITAR.
