(b) Components, parts, accessories, and attachments for articles in paragraph (a) of this category, including but not limited to cartridge cases, powder bags, bullets, jackets, cores, shells (excluding shotgun shells), projectiles, boosters, fuzes and components therefor, primers, and other detonating devices for such ammunition.

So... from my interpretation I would only buy primers for my pistol and rifle cartridge manual loading firearms with barrels over 18 inches in length. Or am I misinterpreting their intent? :s0062:

I was wondering if I would still need that application if I had some primers bought and sent to someone I know in Canada and have them ship it to me via fed-ex or even ups.

I believe ATF Form 6 needs to be filed and approved before you can purchase and import ammunition, firearms and reloading supplies.

Yeah, but since it’s ok with the current administration to come across the border without any concern whatsoever for what you might bring, I’d say he’s good to go!

With the recent drug ruling.....
About it being unconstitutional.....
To find guilt.....of someone possessing felony drugs in WA, without proof of intent.

Hummmm.......
What if.....
Someone were to be caught "in possession" of primers (or even drugs) brought in from Canada? Think what if.... the package was wrapped like a present.

"Officer.....I got that package from a "Canadian friend" that I met in a bar. He asked me to bring it to WA and to hold it for another friend of his. His friend is supposed to pick it up from me later in the week. The package isn't mine. And, I have no idea what's in the package."

OK, Ok, ok.....I guess it would depend on if that someone were to get caught by the Feds or the WA cops? LOL.

Aloha, Mark

I do get a kick out of gun owners ensuring gun owners follow every tiny bit of any tiny law, at the same time screaming things like “I will not comply” and “Molon Labe”

Go to Canada, buy primers if available like they are in the states, drive home. Most important part...

DON’T POST ABOUT IT ON THE INTERNET.

The way I understand it, the person in CA would have to do export paperwork and you would have to do import paperwork with the ATF.
