Post FCP should anticipate the risk from added UK WTO tariffs
Anticipated :roll:

Irish Ferries fleet is to get a new €144m passenger vessel and capacity for 165 freight vehicles and 300 cars. It's understood that Irish Continental, which also owns the Eucon freight line, has also signed an option for another vessel with the shipyard.
http://www.independent.ie/business/iris ... 63001.html

Irish Ferries anticipated growth in business for haulage traveling to the continent with the UK deciding to exit the EU. An order was placed with a German shipyard for a fleet of super capacity ferries, should it become necessary to avoid 24 hour delays to market, resulting from delays passing through UK customs on route to the continent, occurring from WTO trade rules.
A gap of two years before these super ferries are in service. It would be advisable of the FCP to anticipate risk of added tariffs for the firearms trade applying to the UK and Ireland, effecting the wholesale pricing of sporting supplies. A large amount of American firearms and ammunition exports are sent to Germany for distribution to the rest of the EU!
The sport in the UK can easily get around trade barriers by increasing the availability of reloading components and propellant. Meanwhile, the FCP play their cards close to their chests for tactical reasons most likely. The list of concerns included on the agenda are proposals for the wider availability of reloading, with the prospect of WTO trade deals being applied in the near future, it would be a practical consideration for the representatives to consider wisely!

Post FCP should anticipate the risk from added UK WTO tariffs
The firearms trade in Ireland suffered badly from the recession years. The trade must prepare again, as the UK makes ready to invoke article 50.

"No unnecessary delays" for Britain preparing to leave the single market. Article 50 – triggering the formal process to exit by March next year.
Increasingly likely the UK is heading for a complete trading and customs union break from the EU that allows free circulation of goods."

It said the industry was worth tens of millions in sales and employs hundreds of people. However, the number of gun dealers has significantly reduced from 840 in the late 1990s to just 263 currently.

Countryside Alliance stressed in a series of meetings held during May with politicians and officials in Strasbourg, including German MEP Karl Heinz-Florence, President of the European Parliament’s Countryside Intergroup.

Ahead of the visit, hunters in this country and Europe issued a joint document calling for specific policies to protect trade and travel opportunities in any future relationship with the EU.

The document highlights that shooting and hunting are worth an estimated 16 million euros to the European economy annually, and are directly involved in the management of 65 per cent of the EU’s landmass. This investment is vital for jobs, conservation and communities, and must be not be overlooked in the Brexit talks.

As negotiations continue, neither side should forget that the majority of shotguns, rifles and ammunition used in this country are imported from countries in the EU, particularly Spain and Italy.


Introducing tariffs on these goods could increase the cost of shooting and harm manufacturers at home and in Europe. However, the biggest concern for most importers is the potential for additional bureaucracy which could disrupt the supply chain and add far more to costs than the introduction of World Trade Organisation tariffs, which are only around 3 per cent on firearms and ammunition.

Many of our domestic gun makers rely on component parts from countries in the EU so it would be beneficial for everyone if these good trading relationships were able to continue post Brexit.

The port of Rotterdam is the largest container port in Europe......U.S. sporting arms and ammunition are exported to Europe (Germany) for distribution across the EU.

Brexit is a ‘God-given opportunity’ to steal trade from UK: Wilbur Ross :shock:
https://www.cnbc.com/2016/12/27/brexit- ... -ross.html

Ross has also referred to Brexit as the "most expensive divorce proceeding in the history of the world."

The 79-year-old private equity billionaire has endorsed the "Trump trade doctrine," which stipulates that any new trade must reduce the U.S. trade deficit, strengthen manufacturing and boost growth. Britain has a trade surplus with the U.S.

Wilbur Ross, President-elect Donald Trump's pick for Commerce secretary, has urged other countries to exploit the "God-given opportunity" to steal business from the U.K., according to a report in The Times.

Ross urged Cypriot financiers to strike during this "period of confusion" in Britain to draw businesses away from the City. He made the remarks before the U.S. election and his selection by the Trump.

"I recommend that Cyprus should adopt and immediately announce even more liberal financial service policies than it already has so that it can try to take advantage of the inevitable relocations that will occur during the period of confusion," Ross said, according to The Times.

He further added that Britain's departure from the European Union was a "God-given opportunity" for the City's financial rivals, especially Frankfurt and Dublin in particular.

If confirmed as Commerce secretary, Ross would be among those responsible for negotiating a free trade deal with the U.K. But his comments have sparked speculation that the U.S. may seek to exploit the uncertainty created by Brexit in order to lure business away from London.

Are you saying reloading is currently being discussed by FCP?

Considering the current reloading situation and that the same "players" are on the FCP, who are mostly commercial entities, I do not expect it to be any major advantage to ordinary shooters unless the shooting groups on FCP can make money from us above & beyond the actual costs e.g. spurious courses & memberships ! Being somewhat blunt, there are likely to be some who will once again ensure they have a monopoly on whatever, if anything, above what's there already, is/might be allowed !

We are going to be gouged on prices for all our equipment regardless off any actual rise in purchase costs and the excuse will be "Brexit".........................

I'll bite to be fair a lot of things in life have a small cabal of pandering conformists and their girlish cheerleaders fawning over the elite mob sense of entitlement but don't even see why they aren’t adored :mrgreen:

Therein lies the problem of not having secured one leading umbrella body along the lines of the NRA and BSSC/ British Shooting Sports Council
http://www.bssc.org.uk/
https://home.nra.org/

Two examples where ample resources for professional representing on the grand scale exist, than it is to better hope on raised expectations, dependent on someone or something of a cure for a fragmented sport from years of infighting, hostile takeovers and various other things that might also be mentioned to what justice there is from equality advise for favoring a minority that are usually singled out for special treatment....
