    Buying rangefinders off eBay?

    Has anyone purchased one off eBay before?
    I'm not much of an overseas online shopper, I've been looking at rangefinders on eBay but when I asked a question about one I received this reply..


    The international community considers this item a "Munitions Of War" Not under any circumstances will VOW ship to any country which these items are highly restricted. This would be a violation of international law. Do not bid on this item!
    The answer is no.
    Thank you for your question.


    Has anyone recently purchased a rangefinder off Optic Planet or eBay?
    Just wondering how you got on..


    Cheers

    My thoughts exactly Toby..
    It's a hunting shop selling it too.
    My enquiry was asking if he would ship it to NZ so when he said no international shipping I told him about the Youshop USA shipping facility but still just got the same answer.

    He may be correct, I'm not sure.
    Just sounds a bit ridiculous that's all.

    I replied to his e-mail and I just got told if I bid on the item he will not ship it.

    Most likely all to do with the word "ballistic" in the item name stupid
