Thank you for the E-mail.
We have placed certain restrictions, on certain items listed in our catalog and our web site.
Due to the various state, county and municipal laws that exist, we are not always able to comply with each individual guideline. Not all of the restrictions are based on laws on the books, but could be a company decision based on certain concerns. Things such as whether the state law suits pending involving gun owners, recent court decisions that may effect businesses like ours. Finally it may be that the states laws are so vague that they could be interpreted unfavorably in the event a court action was ever involved, and finally as a public held company, we are obligated to safeguard our stockholder's investments.
We do apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
If you have any other questions please contact us.
Enjoy the Outdoors,

| In light of recent developments, I would be surprised if ANY drums are shipped. They are from Russia and they need a "retransfer authorization." I am betting it won't be done by Sep 15. And, in light of Customs developments, very likely NONE get in.|
Give it a rest Hardrede. You remind me of Aesop's fox.

hardrede: Not a bad idea regarding the Ruskies waltzing down into Iraq. It would be great fun to watch on TV. Let 'em uncrate some of those Lend-Lease Thompsons with 'C' drums and go to town(s)...
