Help Where to get it in US Import/Export

By The Small Arms Review Editorial Staff

The NFA world- dealing with Title II firearms- is a difficult one. The landmines in regulations are frequent, seemingly common sense business decisions can often land a company or individual in trouble when they couldn’t imagine the danger. The laws are arcane and twisted logic paths are there- add in import, export, DDTC, ITAR, AECA-76, GCA-68 and the confusion simply multiplies. I wrote the first edition of the Machine Gun Dealer’s Bible in 1989 because of how many companies and friends were running smack into confusing laws that were a new focus of government employees; and people were gob-smacked at what they were facing.

Today as SAR approaches its 20th year, we thought that it might be a good idea to help introduce our readers to some places they can get help; Legal firms who specialize and have been honest in the dealings we have seen, former regulatory employees who will consult on issues, and resources to help guide you before you have trouble, and perhaps help clean up issues that might arise from violations. If you don’t see someone on our lists, it may not mean we consider them untrustworthy, we may simply be unaware of their service or it might be too local for this magazine.
