OK so I found a rifle I want to import and this can be done fairly simply from an EU RFD to a UK RFD who can then sign the rifle onto my FAC.
No problem so far.
Now I want to find a courier company to arrange collection from the RFD in the EU & ship to RFD in UK.
This is where I hit a brick wall.
None of the couriers I have spoken to - all the usual ones you'd think of, they all have a list of prohibitions that include shipping any kind of firearm.
Suggestions please...the RFD in the EU has the same problem.
Surely there must a be a means of legally importing/exporting & arranging for a carrier to ship firearms?
