RCIR shipment in limbo

Greetings,

I have a shipment of 12 Rcir's from the UK sitting in Louisville KY. I can only assume it is being held by customs. It has been there for over a week. UPS can tell me nothing... Has anyone else had to deal with this?

Thanks in Advance,

Jon Pulicicchio (Barbeerian)
