    Nothing to do with IRG. Complex import from both sides of the border.

    We were advised this morning the licenses are in the final stages before release.

    We will keep everyone up to date.


    Flat rate shipping to Canada is 25.00USD on all accessory and ammunition orders regardless of quantities ordered. Firearms are exported to Canada at a flat rate of 25.00USD per firearm.

Like every business we rely on other businesses and services to run efficiently. When there are delays with product supply chains or services things will slow down. Being that as it may, we look at out-sourcing with different companies to ensure efficiency. Usually there is no noticeable delay to the customer. A company that can in-house some of these things has a much better ability to control the outcome.

    Unfortunately, like every other exporter/importer we rely on a number of governing agencies to keep the wheels turning, which is compounded by the exporting of Defense Products.
    There are 2 Governing Agencies that regulate exports. One is the US State Department, the other is Department of Commerce. Once the licenses have been filed, and lets keep in mind that information first has to be categorized either by ECCN or USML codes, make, model, barrel length, caliber, action, then funneled and triple checked. Source commodities must be confirmed and then that information is channeled into the State Dept. or Commerce licensing software.
    It takes License applications approx. 36 hours just to get through their screening or security checks before they even enter the system so someone at the State Dept can see them.

    Then there is US protocol in processing those license applications, and keep in mind the US exports to 196 countries. License applications over $1,000,000.00 require Congressional approval which because of staff shortages cause 60 to 90-day delays. Commerce out-sources the license applications to 3 sometimes 5 other Governing Agencies for recommendations prior to approval which also takes time.
    If all goes well and yes, we have a stellar track record, we receive the export license, or in our case licenses. IRUNGUNS is registered and in good standings with the TSA which makes things a little easier although we still have to inventory everything, load it, and double check again before it even leaves our US facility.

    Then we must file with AES “Automatic Export Systems” on the US side, keep in mind AES does not work if they have not received the electronic filings from State or Commence. We must also file with our Canadian Broker for entry into Canada. This all seems easy enough, but each agency, including our broker, requires the information in a different format. One would hope that there is a common tariff or commodity code between Canada and the US but of course not, that would be too easy, and when your licenses have 300 to 500 line items each it can be very time consuming and it has to be perfect otherwise a fatal error is generated and you start over.

    In closing, the majority of moving Defense Products relies heavily on numerous Governing Agencies, all working in unison. When one or more of these agencies change their policy or procedures it affects everyone.
    Hopefully in explaining this process everyone understands how much work all exporters go through in making this happen. We unfortunately have no control over licensing or adjudication and when the Government changes direction we are forced to start all over. As these licenses were in the system they have been expedited but please understand it takes time. Weekends and stat holidays slow this process down as the Government is 9-5.


    I hope this helps everyone understand this unfortunate delay.

    Thank-you

    I think you're missing the point. Everyone understands the reasons for delays. The issue is that you're providing completely unrealistic delivery estimates that are barely achievable if EVERYTHING goes smooth. But it never does... As i said earlier, you would be much better off to promise a delivery date that takes into account all the factors that you described - basically a worst case scenario. If you can get it done sooner, then everyone would be happy. If you cant, then nobody will complain.

    We appreciate your point and should this become the norm absolutely, but for the last 5 years there have been no serious delays or any problems for that matter. Export regulations are changing and its unfortunate but this export was caught in the middle of it. Trade wars, embargoes, sanctions, and animosity between Governments does not help.

    As stated before we will keep you informed.
