    Likely to be fine as long as it isn't a semi.

    Just talk to the seller. He wanted to use H&F transfer service. He has been told it is on hold till the legislation comes out. Apparently this is true of all courier companies.

    Why have online sales not been stopped? There is a hell of a lot of money out there in limbo.

    Gimp I sent a gun down south on Tuesday and despite what this thread suggests it was absolutely no drama.
    Arrived today no drama at all.
