We have shipped out all packages from the March export (orders placed on www.irunguns.com from February 16th to March 15th) except those have not paid their 5% GST & Canada Post shipping fees. Those customers need to log into their accounts and go to "Incomplete Order History" and pay their shipping & taxes so we can get their orders shipped as soon as possible. 

The export truck will be leaving our US facility and will arrive to our Canadian facility by the end of this month, barring any unforseen circumstances.

This means all orders placed on www.irunguns.com from March 16th to April 15th will arrive soon and all of our staff will be devoted to getting as many packages shipped out to our customers as quickly as possible.

We apologize for the delay as the world-wide pandemic has created a considerable delay with our distributors and manufacturers shipping us products.

Thank you for your patience.

~~ Latest export news as of January 29, 2020 ~~

 

All orders placed on www.irunguns.com from November 16, 2019 to January 15, 2020 have been submitted to the US State Department and the Dept of Commerce for permit approval and release. We do not file permits in December due to all of the Government shutdowns from the holidays.

All 3rd Party Imports from November 16, 2019 to January 15, 2020 have been submitted to the US State Department and the Dept of Commerce for permit approval and release. We do not file permits in December due to all of the Government shutdowns from the holidays.

We anticipate these orders should arrive to our Canadian facility mid-February and once our Canadian staff have verified and processed every order, you will receive your tracking number once it leaves our Canadian warehouse.

For those customers that had originally paid the US seller prior to the US State Departments changes in regulations for Export Reform, we are still awaiting permit releases.

 

**Please note that on March 9, 2020 categories I, II & III of the USML will now be transitioning from the State Department to the Dept of Commerce.

This means that exporting firearms from the US to Canada will be much more streamlined and less complicated.

We will also be refiling, with the Dept of Commerce, most of our customer’s imports that have been caught in the US State Departments change in regulations, in the hopes of speeding a decision from either governing agency.

Please be advised, all exported “Defense Products” out of the United States are regulated by two Government agencies: 

1. The Department of Commerce - which takes up to 30 - 45 days for permit adjudicating.
2. The US State Department - which is now stating permit adjudicating will be on average of 45 days.

When there are changes in Export Regulations, Civic holidays, extensive Government shutdowns, or when the Government is short-staffed it creates unforeseen delays. 


IRUNGUNS is like every other manufacturer, supplier and exporter of Defense Products; we are at the mercy of the Government. We share your frustration and we are waiting, just like you are, for things to start moving.  All we can do at this point is keep everyone up to date.

This was released to us last week by the US State Department, they are enforcing Section 38 of the AECA:


“Dear Carolyn,

Thanks for your email regarding DDTC provisos to restrict certain pinned magazines. We understand that pinning magazines is an acceptable practice in most instances and wanted to give you additional guidance for submitting these cases going forward. DDTC is not against the pinning of magazines that have a capacity of 32 rounds or below. Therefore, we ask that when submitting a license application for pinned magazines that you state:
“Magazines up to a 32 round capacity pinned to [X] rounds.” This will alleviate the need for you to submit a separate line item for each magazine.

However, DDTC will continue to restrict the export of high capacity magazines (defined as those over 32 rounds) – pinned or not – to government end use only. This is why DDTC needs to know the unaltered magazine capacity for the licenses you submitted.

Section 38 of the AECA allows DDTC to restrict the end use of USML defense articles in order to “control imports and exports of defense articles in furtherance of world peace and security and foreign policy of the U.S.” Section 38 is implemented on a case by case basis in response to concerns regarding the end use of defense articles and in reaction to U.S. foreign policy objectives."


The above release means there will be no more magazines with an original capacity of over 32 rounds exported from the United States. 


All of our license applications have been affected, as every one of our license applications has a firearm with a magazine in it.

To clarify: this has further delayed all license applications, and please, before you start firing off emails, we will keep everyone up to date here and on CGN at this link: CanadianGunNutz

The US State Department was kind enough to allow an addendum to be added to all current license applications rather than having us resubmit them. These license applications will go back into review status but will not require re-submission, which would have created extensive delays. We are very thankful for their help and for allowing us to use an addendum. We will keep everyone in the loop.


Thank you for your understanding in the ever changing world of exporting defense products.

 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Please note that the U.S. State Department is still working through Furlough delays, being severely short-staffed, and a continued backlog due to the 36 day U.S. Government shutdown from January.

These delays are also part of the U.S. State Department now enforcing ITAR 122.1 whi
