So there is a pipe I have been after for quite some time. The only place I've been able to find it is in the UK. It is a reputable shop in North Yorkshire. I can't pay via CC due to regulations and I can't pay via wire transfer because my bank doesn't do international wires. IF I could find someone in this area of the UK to purchase the pipe and ship it to me (I would, of course, compensate them and add a finder's fee) is that legal? Or are you just not supposed to ship pipes out of the UK, period? It's strange, because I'm pretty sure I see pipes shipping out of Germany and Poland on ebay, but maybe the UK has even stricter laws. Any help would be appreciated.
