Obama Administration Refuses Import of US Collector Guns from South Korea


The U.S. government is opposing Korea’s bid to sell thousands of aging U.S. combat rifles to American gun collectors.

By Jung Sung-ki

The U.S. government opposed South Korea’s bid to sell hundreds of thousands of aging U.S. combat rifles to American gun collectors, a senior government official said Thursday.

The ministry announced the plan last September as part of efforts to boost its defense budget, saying the export of the M1 Garand and carbine rifles would start by the end of 2009.

The U.S. administration put the brakes on the plan, citing “problems” that could be caused by the importation of the rifles. 

The problems the U.S. government cited were somewhat ambiguous, said an official at the Ministry of National Defense on condition of anonymity.

“The U.S. insisted that imports of the aging rifles could cause problems such as firearm accidents. It was also worried the weapons could be smuggled to terrorists, gangs or other people with bad intentions,” the official told The Korea Times. 

“We’re still looking into the reason why the U.S. administration is objecting to the sale of the rifles and seeking ways to resolve the problems raised,” he said.

Critics say the ministry pushed to sell the firearms in a hasty manner without enough consultation with the U.S. beforehand, as calls were growing to increase defense expenditure. 

The Seoul government sought to sell the outdated U.S guns back to the United States.

A total of 86,000 M1 rifles and another 22,000 carbines were to be sold, as the weapons have been mothballed for about five decades in military warehouses. The per-unit price of the M1 rifle is about $220 and the carbine is more than $140, according to the ministry. 

M1s were made first in 1926 and used in World War II and the 1954-1975 Vietnam War. The carbines were first produced in 1941 and used during the 1950-1953 Korean War.

At that location you will find a 重庆团购 camp of trolls. Start on one side and just go in a circle killing all the trolls. They have a fast respawn rate so when you get around the camp once they will be respawned so you don't have to stop!
Using 重庆二手交易 a hunter I found out I was using a lot of mana so you might want to conserve mana when you can to keep going so you
will not have to stop a 重庆二手电脑 whole lot. Don't worry you will stop a few times when first doing this but it gets easier and better as you go.
Back to the Troll Necklace 重庆二手手机 Bounty quest, usually you can get 1 necklace for every 2 kills it seems. They drop pretty easily and you can end up with 100+ after an hour of grinding here. The best part is to turn in the quest
for exp you only final fantasy leveling need 5. First time you turn in the quest you get 3900 exp
points and final fantasy gold everytime after that you get 390 exp.
So, anyway off the trolls you get 250-300 exp per kill and they are easy kills. At 100 you can turn in the quest 20 times for ff14 gold an extra 7800 exp points.
In my opinion, where else can you get an extra 7800 exp points an hour at level 40-49? Also, sometimes you can ffxiv power leveling find the necklaces on the auction house also! How simple to get a lot of
experience really ff14 power leveling quickly!
Be sure to bookmark this page and check out the
other guides for the BEST places to ffxiv power leveling grind.
