    I'm not sure EAA is out of the Woods yet

    A non FFL can ship to the manufacturer through Ups and fedex also. It needs to be non ground/3 day or faster with insurance and the box needs to be UNMARKED. Then the manufacturer can send it back when the work is complete. An individual can send a firearm to another individual with teh same methods above. An FFL is only needed if there is an intent to change ownership of the firearm. I've sent long guns to the manufacture by usps, and all types by Fedex and UPS with no issue to glock, S&W, Ruger etc. I have an FFL but none was ever asked for except when I was buying one, hence the intent to change ownership. Of course, when they recieve the firearm they will log it in their Firearms aquisition and disposition record but will show it as back to you in that record when it is shiped back. Here's the whole thing for the usps. It's dry reading but http://pe.usps.com/text/pub52/pub52c4_009.htm 11.1 Pistols, Revolvers, and Other Concealable Firearms 11.1.1 Definitions The terms used in this standard are defined as follows: a.

  3. I understand the legal reasons, If, for example, you were in a shootout and your "story" was that you were x number of feet away, etc, etc. The investigators could come to me and I could provide ammo with the same characteristics/recipe that you used. They would then be able to reproduce the shot and look at the powder/GSR pattern and determine the distance that you were from the target and coroborate(spelling) your story. If you were hand loading and had a mix of various recipes or had previously done testing to determine the pattern. It would not lend credibility to your story and may be interpreted as an attempt to manipluate the scenario to favor you when in fact that you were doing something different. It's tricky but I read of something similar wher the shooter was using reloaded ammo of various brass types and was not able to convince teh investigators that the ammo was all consistent. In that case it was hard to reroduce the shot/GSR pattern to help coroborate the stated version of the story.
  4. Are you trying to access www.swampfoxgunworks.com or www.swampfoxammo.com? There is a dns issue with www.swampfoxammo.com that I need to get fixed and will today if possible.
  5. Gold dots are almost impossible to find right now. I'm checking into the speer unicore to see what it can do.
  6. I'm glad for the positive feedback. I am looking for gold dots but they are as scarse as gold. I have been told the speer unicore are similar but don't know. I'll be checking into this for the next few days. Those 200gr fully supported chambers are hot aren't they? :oh yea:
  7. 1986-1991 on Fairlee street Just off main across from Richard's restaurant. Gunsmithing mostly, but I did buy and sell firearms and ammo. I was into refinishing old long guns and hands guns. I had all sorts of polishing tools and blueing systems. I actually had more work than my narrow attention span could handle, I was in my mid 20's and had other things on my mind. Anyway I sold out to someone else who inturn sold everything including the building.
  8. Nah, nothing like that. I appreciated knowing that stuff can happen to others besides just me.
  9. What .357's do you want. I can make them but have not focused on them much lately. Let me know what bullet and i'll get back to you. I looked through my notify when in stock list but can't tell who you are in that list. The list shows email address and usernames but, the list is big now due to the demand for gold dots mostly. Send me an email through my site letting me know what you need again. Thanks Mike

  11. Thanks for the anti spam effort Mr. Ed I hope all is well, and thanks for the plug.
  12. No problem at all. I understand completely. I do have a phone and will do calls but I don't have anyone "manning" the phones. If you or others need to call, please drop me an email through the contact us page on my site and i'll send you a number to call or you can give me a number and a time and I'll call you. Thanks for understanding the situation. I am not in a financial bind personally but, the business has to stand on its own now. I have put almost $100k into this over the last two years and don't have very much to show for it, not even the original money, except for the equipment, loaders and pressure barrel etc.
  13. The Gold Dots are still mostly unavailable, I could sell 1000's ofthem if I could get them. I do occasionally find a few but The price is high. The last ones I had to pay 50 cents each. Two years ago, when I first started this adventure, I could get 180 gold dots anytime I wanted them. I bought 2000 and then the next time I wanted some I couldn't find any for less than 45 cents each, now I can't find any. The problem with the floating price is that If I buy some for 25 cents and then sell them, then go back for more and they are 40 cents, the 15 cents difference has to come from the profit from the previous batch, so in effect I sold the last batch too cheap and did not make any money. The replacing of the components at higher prices wipes out the profit from the previous batch, The only way to stop this issue is to raise prices to match the current component price before I sell the ammo, The problem is you never know when you'll be able to find any and what the price will be when you do.
