Then there is always a huckster who will try and sell you granite and tell you it's a moon rock

When I was importing from both Italy and Spain I always tried to have a shipment of 5 guns or more

The cost on a per gun for shipping, overseas broker fees and my brokers fees came out to $275/gun

The base cost for airline shipping was some what fixed. They had a minimum and adding more guns was only a small increase

Shipping jumped during Covid a lot. Container shipping has dropped partially back, but I doubt air freight or FedEx has.

Although I keep looking for an American double that really trips my trigger (pun intended), I keep finding English guns are better values. The recent trend in English gun prices has me hoping that I will find one more that will fit my list of specs. Just one more smile

an now what we need is to protect the value of our current supply of moon rocks...im talkin good old fashioned trump style import tarriffs on moon rocks...otherwise, the space pirates may figure out a way to somehow get more moon rocks here, directly from, well, duh moon...an dat would not be good for those of us who already have moon rock holdings...

Fed-Ex has suspended their 023 heavy freight service. Which from my understanding, the definition of 023 is for firearms. So the last shipment I had brought in a few months ago had to fly American Airlines. That was more than double what usually Fed-Ex is.
