Posted on 04/11/2014 4:43:19 PM PDT by Kartographer
The BATFE has spoken. 7N6 surplus ammo is now officially banned from future import.
In the official letter posted April 7th on the BATFE website, were told that on March 5th of 2014 the Customs and Border Protection Agency (CBP) submitted a request for a formal evaluation of 7N6 ammo by the BATFE. This request was intended to force a ruling on the eligibility of the ammo to be imported. Apparently the Customs and Border Protection Agency has nothing better to do with its time than working to ban the import of affordable practice ammo
but I digress.

You can bet somebody following Obama's instructions ordered this agency to take this action.
I had no idea what that was until I read the article. It reminds me of the 80s when “cop killer bullets” were the big push by the media.
It got so bad that the NRA began supporting the ban. I am not kidding, all our supposed friends fell all over themselves to support banning cop killer bullets. The NRA considered it a victory in that it did not ban all ammo.
Someone in the US has begun making a pistol version of the AK74, so this ‘steel core’ ammo cannot be used in a pistol thus it must be banned. Banned I tell ya! ... Remember those evil cop killer booolits? Well, this is a armor plate penetrator, according to fedzilla.
You type faster than my old fingers ...
I must have just read it earlier. My fingers are all full of arthritis and recently parts of them have become both numb and painful. I didn’t think that was possible.
No they didn't. In fact the anti gunners vociferously attacked the NRA as wanting cops to die for opposing it.
No different from their effort to bulk buy ammo to starve the citizens.
The finger next to the pinky on my right hand (tennis racket hand for too many years) is going numb from the tip back tot he first knuckle. I think I have an alien implant ... devilish little thing that.
The NRA did most certainly support the ban of certain bullets. I remember it well.
Of course the media still attacked the NRA because they didn’t support banning all fmj bullets.
The bullets which caused the stir and which the NRA went along with banning was the teflon coated ones. I have forgotten the company’s name but it turned out that there had never been a cop killed by one of those bullets penetrating his vest.
They don’t want teflon coated bullets.
They don’t want steel core bullets.
They don’t want lead bullets.
They don’t want fragmenting bullets.
They don’t want hollow point bullets.
I’m starting to see a pattern here...
That is exactly what is happening to my index finger on my right hand. I used to play a lot of tennis but I don’t think that had anything to do with it. I can touch it with the other hand and it feels like a dead man’s finger.
Oddly if I apply pressure using that hand, for instance opening a 2 liter coke bottle, it will start hurting and keep doing so for 30 minutes or so. After it has started hurting, even pushing on a mouse will hurt.
I have developed arthritis in my fingers as well. I find that drinking a glass a day of black cherry juice seems to help.
Cetyl Myristoleate cures arthritis. Used it myself. ‘Nuf said. You can get it online from Natrol.
I will have to try that, that is if I can find black cherry juice.
I hope yer smarter than that, Kart...if ya ain’t got yer gear together NOW, yer too late.
I screwed up, I didn’t take in account the possiblity of a serious boating accident. ;-)
The thing I’ll miss the most is 115 Merc...;-(
Got anything to document your claim? Of course they also pointed out that the language was so broad it would also ban lots of bullets besides the Teflon coated bullets that the media dubbed “cop killers”. That’s because the gun control crowd uses that tactic all the time. But that’s not the same thing as supporting banning those bullets. So who in the NRA supported it, and when?
Look it up yourself. If you find anything interesting let us know.
I did. Found nothing except criticism of the NRA by antis for opposing it. It’s pretty hard to prove a something didn’t happen, which is why it’s up to the person who claims it did to supply some evidence.
Ammo? What’s that? Guns? What are they?
Boats I know about.
The ring finger of my left hand, SOB almost bit the last joint off.
You don’t want to find out how that feels in cold weather.
To get close, take a pair of pliers and go mid-evil on your finger.
Link please ...
It wasnt a US company. It was a foreign gunmaker and the ATF approved the import of the pistol in 2010. They wanted this to happen.
This has GOT to be one of the more stupid things I’ve ever heard of regarding firearms/ammo regulations. Totally stupid!
What’s next? 5.56? It too is “armor piercing” and can technically be fired from a ‘handgun’.
Just damn STUPID!!!!!
Did I mention that this is STUPID?!?!
There is principle involved but OTOH, 5.45x39mm is not much of a round. Lot of ammo sellers can't even give it away. Best to stick with 7.62x39mm. I expect I have enough of the old Yugo M76 to get me through whatever is coming.
The NRA considers a whole lot of things victories that are ultimately designed to disarm america, and American’s, and hopefully American’s will wake up and see through the long and compromised history of their beloved hunting and sporting purposes anti-gun, organization apptly named nra.
NRA has been around since 1871 promoting every egregious anti-second amendment action designed to minimize and thwart “shall not be infringed”, they will continue to use the money willingly sent to them by their cohorts in crime, to work against the American people and their God given rights.
Perspective says: these are the same people who voted twice to send the present occupant of the White House to work for them. I for one don’t send anyone to Washington to work for me, rather I expect them to protect me from those who think they need to work for me.
In the meantime try finding a group that does not compromise away what little we have left in the way of protection. NAGR GOA JPFO anyone, but get the hell out of the nra and stop sending them money to be used against you.
Case in point, “fix NICS”, an NRA inspired program, pushed by the “NSSA” that would be the National Shooting Sports Association, and designed to get every state in these United States to send a mental health LIST to the NICS. That would be the National Instant Criminal Background Check System. South Dakota managed to remain off this egregious LIST until the nra supported a bill in the legislature to get us compliant with their “final solution”.
Good Golly Moses folks what will it take to wake up the masses. The NRA is not now nor ever was your friend. They were all in on the last gun ban called the 1986 gun control act. I’d say it’s like this: there are way too few folks actually interested in what is going on in the gun world, until things begin to go south, when it is way too late for action, compromise is reached that looks like it has put to bed the latest attack, then everyone goes back to sleep until the next crisis. One of these days, the real crisis will be on the table, and too late our goose is cooked.
It takes guts to be hard core when it comes to gun rights. Hard core isn’t in the vocabulary of the wusses at nra.
