    Hi Guys,

    I am one of the poor Brits that our government has been trying to screw into submission.
    I need to find a dealer in the States who can ship a rifle to the UK. I can handle all the UK paperwork, import licence but need someone to handle the stateside bit.

    Any help is appreciated.

    I'm not a dealer, but I suspect you'd need more than a dealer to export a rifle to the UK. I think you need an export liscence. And they'd need to know the procedure for shipping to UK, as every country has its own. Just curious, what kind of rifle are you looking for? Hunting? Target? Tactical?

    Here's a brief summary regarding Scotland taken from the Web. Can't verify it's accuracy but...for what it's worth:

    "Its people are feisty, opinionated and fiercely loyal. The country is wild,
    untamed and beautiful. The bad climate adds an edge to both. Buoyed by
    the continued irritant of England on its doorstep, Scotland has survived
    encroachment, brass-monkey weather and the annual influx of stand-up
    comedians arriving for the Edinburgh Festival. But its people have a
    rock-solid identity and sense of self. On top of that, the Scots haven't
    eaten their waterways and forests bare. Scotland's lamb, beef, venison,
    trout and salmon are highly prized, and game birds such as grouse and
    pheasant abound. Wash all this down with a shot or two of the world's
    best whisky and you'll be warming very quickly to the Scottish way of life.
