    Current US Government Shutdown and Export update.

    Good morning and Happy New Year to everyone.

    We just got off the phone with our contacts at the US State Department in regards to the current US Government Shutdown.

    Here are how things are currently working:

    The Department of Commerce, who regulates the export of optics and shotguns, is offline until the US Government Shutdown is over. No licenses can be submitted manually or electronically.
    If you have ordered an optic or shotgun it will not be exported until a license can be submitted and approved. Prior to this shutdown licenses through Commerce were getting approved between 9 and 14 days. Being that as it may, we expect a small delay but nothing serious once things get back up and running.

    The US State Department, who regulates the ITAR and 90% of what we export to Canada, is open but the ability to currently submit new license applications is shutdown as well.
    No new licenses can be submitted manually or electronically.
    Licenses that are currently in the system are on hold until the shutdown is over. Senior Officials and Department heads are on Furlough until further notice.

    This creates a problem as these fine individuals rubber stamp all export licenses. This means the longer it takes to resolve this shutdown the more backed up these people will be. There are also other agencies like AES and US Port Authorities that are heavily burdened during this shutdown as well.

    IRUNGUNS submits for multiple license applications on the 15th of each month. If the shutdown is over by then please expect a small delay as it will take some time for everyone to get back into the swing of things allowing all governing agencies who regulate exports to get caught up.

    Unfortunately, the longer this shutdown goes on the longer it will take to get things back to normal. Please keep that in mind when ordering as there will most likely be delays.

    As for IRUNGUNS, we are preparing everything and will be ready to move at a moments notice.
    Should you have any questions please call the ## office at 928-505-6794 or our Canadian office at 780-449-7220.

    Thank you for your support and understanding.

    Long story short, if the shutdown last for x months, it means delays of at least x months for any export? Or things are crawling with reduced staff but not going to normal speed?

    Things are not crawling, they have halted. Moving forward, any commodities requiring export license approval through State, Commerce or any other Government agency have now stopped due to the Government shutdown.

    Wow. Hope the export part of your business isn't relatively too large compared to domestic sales. I don't think the shutdown will end for weeks, maybe months this time.

    Gonna check what other products requires export. There might be some stock to short on the market.

    Will this effect IRG's ability to ship out items already purchased that were in Canada? Will items already in the .ca store still ship if purchased today? Waiting on my Heritage Rough Rider bought over a week ago to ship out still... (probably Ontario CFO delay)
