    Default Russian Guns and Ammo to Be Banned

    It looks like they will get us one way or another. In retaliation for the poisoning of Aleksey Navalny, the U.S. is banning the import of Russian weapons and ammo. It will take effect September 7, 2021 and will remain in place for a minimum of 12 months. The sanctions can only be lifted after a 12-month period if the Executive Branch determines and certifies to Congress that Russia has met several conditions as outlined in the CBW ACT (see link below). That means TulAmmo, RedArmy Standard, Wolf and Barnaul, among others will all be banned.

    Just as ammunition was becoming more widely available and prices were coming down....standby for another run on it.

    I read that earlier. But I didn't know exactly what brands were Russian. I have a little (ahem...) of Tulammo and Wolf. Dang. After shooting a .22 air rifle all this summer at the cabin I was hoping to start shooting "real" ammo soon. At least I won't be "That guy" that haunts the gun shop pleading for just a box or two.

    If you don't have it you're desperate to get it. And if you do have it you don't want to use it.

    Thanks for the heads up Rick.

    Well hell. Everything is going more expensive. At least I don't pay range fees anymore.

    Depends on if you view your ammo as survival supplies.

    You don't eat your long term stored survival food as snacks on movie night.

    I am not sure what to make of a government that will impose sanctions on another nation for the death of one dissident while throwing thousands of people that fought beside us to certain death at the hands of the Taliban.

    All those firearms and explosives that were left in Afghanistan will find it's way here in no time. We won't have access to it but it will be here none-the-less.

    Their orders and policies come from the top, or at least Susan Rice and Valerie Jarrett.

    Yes but I still didn't like him. He just looked like he'd pull some middle of the night rule change. Not that I'll like the next one...
