Not sure if it's common knowledge yet but spoke to my RFD this morning and he confirmed that Parcel-Force, as of last Thursday have contacted him telling him that they intended on stopping all Section 1, Section 2 and Section 5 related shipments, so no rifles, shotguns nor ammunition will be shipped by Parcel-Force any longer.
This is a very serious situation for RFDs and shooters because currently I know of no other courier for shipping firearms. Some manufacturers and suppliers have said that they intend to start delivering themselves but unless another courier comes forwards, the cost of firearms and components seems poised to rise and also supplies seemed poised to get thin on the ground.
Not a good situation if true (I have no reason to disbelieve what my RFD tells me).
Update: It now appears that they were mislead by their Parcel Force Contract Manager who supplied them with the WRONG link LoL! I forwarded the link that David included below and it was (good) news to them.
