From: Tim Hathaway hitach@hitach.com Re: URGENT Ammo & Firearms Special Intelligence Report Date: 1/2/2003 Dear Hitach Newsletter Members, All Purpose Ammo, Professional Ordinance, William Sights and others have all gone out of business or filed for bankruptcy. There are more on their way in the not too distant future. Most of these failures have been as a result of governmental involvement and new laws. We have released information to our members long before almost every change or ban in this business. We are beyond question the most consumer oriented company in our industry. We care about you! We MUST know what is going to happen to stay in business. Our intelligence reports are not restricted to paying customers, nor do we require a purchase to get this information. It is all a part of being a member of Hitach's Member Newsletter, which is a free service to you. In 1989, we warned of the AK-47 and SKS ban. Those who acted on our intelligence reports made a "killing". The SKS paratroop rifle you could buy for $48 fully fitted is now at over $400 retail. The AK-47, NEW IN BOX (NIB), is now over $1200 - up from $129. Even a MAC90 with a machined receiver is now over $600 new in box, up from $149. That is, if you can find them. We do, from time to time. We forecasted the importation ban on the Maddi Model-94 with a 21" Steyr stainless steel barrel (AK variant). This is used as a Squad Assault Weapon or Sniper Rifle. We also warned about the year 2000 importation ban and confiscation of ALL high capacity assault type rifles at the dock and with the wholesalers. We warned about 7.62x39mm TULA Cartridge Works ammo (head stamped TCW) being banned. TCW is Russia's premier defense arsenal. According to our forecast it was to be reclassified as hunting ammunition under another trademark. This is the origin of Wolf Ammunition. Do you know where your Wolf Ammo comes from? We do. It is identical to pre-ban Tula ammunition and is manufactured to near match specs for us at Tula Cartridge Works in Wolf cases! We also warned about the ban on tracer and armor piercing ammo, along with 12 gauge specialty ammo. THE NEW (OLD) PROBLEM THE TIME HAS COME TO BUY NOW - NO HYPE - FACTS! Most people are under the misconception that it takes an act of Congress to change gun law - it does in most cases. But, the constitution does not say anything about what rights you have to decide what you can put in your firearm! The fact is that the U.S Treasury Department has ABSOLUTE AUTHORITY to make firearms configuration and ammo related law. This is enforced by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (BATF). FIREARMS We know that most of our customers are recreational firearms buffs and own an average of about 4 firearms. Our average member's order is about 500 rounds of ammo and about 1 out of 40 will broker or transfer at least 1 firearm with us. If you want to own the firearm of your choice, you need to commit TODAY because tomorrow may be too late. The large capacity magazine firearms were all banned for shipment into the United States in the year 2000. Therefore, there is only a small quantity of high capacity magazine type rifles. The new law says 10 rounds is the maximum that can be loaded. Most of the rifles on the ban list will accept up to 100 round magazines or more. Since the supply is low and the demand is high, prices are going up on a daily basis. If you want to own one of these rare rifles, you need to locate a transfer agent. Most pawn shops will transfer firearms for about $20 plus any state or local costs. All you need to do is get them to send us a current copy of their FFL license to have in our files. Once there, we can transfer as many firearms as you want to buy with only a simple phone call. This may seem to be hard, but actually takes less than 10 minutes to set up. Once done, it takes no longer to transfer a firearm than is required to buy one, including FBI purchase authorization. We are going to have access to a limited number of highly desirable semi automatics and collectors items for our MEMBERS ONLY. We are seeking the highest quality at the lowest possible cost. Some items will be "one of a kind" from private collections. This is going to be a massive search and we will buy everything that WE KNOW will increase in value. If you have something you have dreamed of owning, please let us know while we are conducting our search. NEW IN BOX is going to be a thing of the past. The sale will start on January 15th. Call NOW to reserve your order. AMMO If you are an investor or want to cache your ammo, you should be thinking in terms of cases or even pallets of up to 20 cases. New SS109 (M855). 223 Titanium Tip (Green Tip) is the last armor piercing ammo that can be legally imported. We predict that the Treasury Department will ban the importation and sale of this round in the near future. For private citizens, the only NATO source for new SS109 is IMI and Sellier & Bellot. Israel is shipping very little due to the tensions in the Middle East, and we have reports of Sellier & Bellot causing problems in some AR type rifles. We would like to commit to buying the entire next consignment of IMI. Cost of IMI is expected to be between $300 and $500 per case. The cost of Sellier & Bellot is expected to be between $250 and $350 per case. We can drop ship pallets of 20 cases directly. .223 55-grain hollow point deserves mention here. It is not as at risk and is almost as lethal as SS109. There is good supply and it should be used for recreation so you can conserve your SS109. It is less costly and is almost match grade. (We have shot 1/2" groups at 100 yards using an M16-A2) Also on the "soon to go" list is much of the 12 gauge shotgun specialty loads. We recently received notice that All Purpose Ammo has gone out of business due to governmental intervention. They were the largest source of ammunition of this type. The re-labeling of Wolf Ammo hasn't fooled anyone at the Treasury Department. It is designed with but one purpose - and you know what that is. It gave Russia a couple years of cash flow, but is now on the endangered species list. WE GUARANTEE OUR AMMO IS FROM THE TCW PLANT (not head stamped) and will cache for 25 years. I would like to thank our Hitach Newsletter Members for your continued support and business. Visit our web site, or give us a call and let us know what we can do for you. Warm Regards, Timothy Hathaway Sales Manager P.S. - Let a friend know about us today. Tell them to call us and mention that they were referred by a Hitach newsletter member and we'll give them 5% off their first order.

So, I should go out and buy SS109?

So what does this say for Wolf ammo? Does it suck or not?

[b]Zaphod[/b], I have only used the 7.62R wolf ammo out of my M44, so that is all I could speak to, and that is good ammo. [b]gaspain [/b], no you should not buy any ammo.[:D] It could endanger the children.

I hope that there are outright bans on sale and possession of ss109 and m855. It is obvious that many here were the same ones that didn't give a shit when the warnings of 9/94 came around and won't care when the next ban comes either. You people should find another [b]HOBBY[/b].

The 2000 year bannings they mention are false as well are they not? Still getting SARs and such brought in, I think that was just a viscious rumor (sure hope so anyway...)
