Before I wrote my last entry about ARAMEX I checked their site for their restricted products list and it didn't mention firearms accessories as part of illegal shipments.
Then a few days ago, after more than two weeks since my entry, I received this email...

Just to make sure I went directly to their site because I know they are committed to keep my product for 90 days and not 72 hours because I wanted to include that in my reply, I stumbled uppon their restricted products list once again to find out the following...
"Aramex will not ship any item that is prohibited by any law, regulation, state, or local government. Below is a general list of materials that are strictly prohibited.
Acetone, Alcohol, Ammunition, Batteries, Camping Gas, Cash, Currency, Collectible Stamps, Coins, Cigarette Lighters, Cleaning Fluids, Cosmetics, Drugs, Prohibited by Law, Explosives, Fire Extinguishers, Firearms and Accessories, Fireworks, Flammable Liquids, Fresh Flowers, Gas Cylinders, Gases, Glue, Hazardous Material, Human Parts and Remains, Inflammable Items, Lighter Fuel, Liquid Products, Liquid Compressed and Spray Hair Products such as Shampoo, Hair Gel and Mousse, Live Animals including Birds, Reptiles and Fish, Paint Remover, Paint Thinner, Perfumes, Perishables, Perishable Food Stuffs and Food Beverages Requiring Refrigeration or Other Environmental Control, Pesticides, Pornographic Material, Tobacco, Toxic and Poisonous Products, Weapons, Jewelry and Knives.
Please refer back to this page on a regular basis for updates on this subject."
Two weeks ago firearms "accessories" were not on the list. I should have kept my mouth shut and sued their @$$ for not shipping my product.
Verdict: If you find a flaw in legal documents/statements don't tell anyone about it and try to use it for your own good before they discover it.
