I received the following email request and confess I'm at a loss in terms for directing my correspondent where to look:
[quote:83ol79r1]I am doing a research project about the current administration's policies regarding the importation of ammunition during the current shortage.

As I understand it while there is a potential supply of ammunition from foreign manufacturers. However, the government has blocked (or severely reduced) the importation of ammunition from overseas. Some vendors may even have large amounts of goods (ammunition) siting in bonded warehouses being blocked from importation. The millions of dollars in high demand merchandise could be helping boost the economy and refill the depleted coffers of the government (state and federal) via taxes generated by sales.

However, I am having difficulty finding supporting documentation outside the classroom. Could you help me confirm this? Further how could I find the public records of the those shipments in customs warehouses?

Haven't heard of anything along those lines. Imports take a long time from initiation to market. Ammo is Still coming in but at the demand levels of 10-12 months ago. The import market is very unresponsive. It takes a long time to work deals.

Yes time and patience then the money to grease the wheels and finally the risk of owning a large supply of something one hopes others will want at the right price.

Richard, with a popular vendor on this Forum, indicated earlier many importers are hesitant to take too big a position because of fear some restriction or ban could develop out of nowhere. So they're biting off smaller chunks (lesser supply) which more than likely translates into higher prices at the consumer level.

This screams to me of someone who has already made up his mind and is looking for something to back it up instead of the facts. As I learned in Stats 101, if you look at the numbers long enough you can make them say whatever you want...
