    MILITARY SMALL-ARMS AMMUNITION
    Our products are used by many law enforcement agencies and the armed forces. Advanced ammunition by the TCW which is used in anti-terrorist operations deserves special mentioning. The Tula military ammunition is exported to many countries via the state company “ROSOBORONEXPORT” (http://www.rusarm.ru) ONLY .

    WASHINGTON, Oct. 25 (Xinhua) –– The United States has slapped financial sanctions on Russia's state arms exporter for its dealings with Iran, a move was described by Russia as something "without international legal foundation," the Washington Post reported Saturday.

    Under the U.S. law, any assets of the entities or individuals being sanctioned will be frozen, and no Americans are allowed to do business with them.

    The U.S. sanctions were designed to thwart the sales of sensitive technology that could help Iran, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) and Syria develop weapons of mass destruction or missile systems, the Washington Post said.

    Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Friday denounced the U.S. sanctions on Russia's Rosodboronexport, and its subsidiaries, as illegal and unjust.

    "These new sanctions were introduced without any international legal foundation whatsoever," Lavrov was quoted as reporting in Moscow.

    Russia will not change its policies on Iran because of the sanctions, the Russian foreign minister stressed.

    The law states that no american is allowed to do business with them, but what happens if instead of requiring funny pictures from the nigerian scammer we make him buy the guns and import them from him?

    Ok looks like maybe we are in the clear for the moment, think it just stops the gov from buying anything from them, not civilians.

    I'm still ordering 2 cases though :o

    .

    Prvi is a serbian? ammo company that just sells stuff through wolf.

    Also, Wolf .22 and 12Ga are made in Germany, so you should still be able to get that stuff some how.

    Its been printed on a bunch of news sites, I think the question is will it effect us consumers, a couple of the news stories I read said that it restricted the Gov from purchasing there exports, not civilians. The government blows our tax money on buying ammo for the iraqi's and afghans I think this just means the gov cannt buy ammo from the russians anymore :dunno:
