I'm still waiting to hear from Customs or from the post office.

All I did was order a replica SWAT style helmet and customs decided to hold it for a couple weeks, THEN release it to me. When I got the letter in my mailbox saying I had to pick up a package, I went there, saw the big yellow Customs Opened Tape on the side, signed "FUCK YOU" on the electronic signature doohickey (Canada Post) and walked out without paying the $15 fee.

The woman called me to come back but fuck her and Customs. We pay them to help keep us safe, not to be generalized cunts about opening everything. Fuckers also broke the ENTIRE hop-up on my old AUG so I had to go out and buy a new one which was a big pain in the ass.

I got a Xbox Live headset thing once... when I opened... naw, I should say reopened... the box, the package was already opened, and the headset removed, then replaced... they even took the little twist tie off of the wire. So when I took the headset out of the package it was a huge tangled mess.

The headset didn't even work either... still doesn't.

My first gun, a TM M16A2, was opened up by customs.

The rear tabs were sitting on the OUTSIDE of the receiver. The "C" clip that attaches the inner barrel to the hop up? It was loose in the box. I didn't notice until a couple of weeks later at my first scrim that both my Hop-up rubber and C-clip were missing (fortunately, I found em in the box). Pricks.

On top of that... My first GBB had a mag full of gas... Right out of the box. Retailer never used it. Go customs.

So yeah... Assholes.

Customs gassed a mag for you?

Maybe they were ... "testing" your purchase... call it quality assurance

The poo idea is golden, maybe cover a really shitty broken gbb, or better yet split the gbb into standard field parts and cover them with rabbit piss....not only will it look normal but by the time they smell it...too late...they will have probably dropped it on the floor by that point due to the retarded smell..

I own two rabbits and man..they're piss is worse smell than any smell ive ever encountered...my dogs poo smells rosey by comparison.

We could come up with these all day

I ordered a little over $500 of upgrades for my MP5, its been in Customs for the past 9 days. I swear if they disassemble my M120 mechbox looking for whatever and they break it or don't reassemble it I will take a dump in a box and make sure it ends up on the desk of somebody important. And that's before I would file a formal complaint.

It depends on the customs agent, by some miracle I just received my Inokatsu AK 74 kit about half an hour ago, opened it, nothing was missing or damaged during their possession. what makes the whole thing ridiculous is that there are no set guidelines or standard that they follow, some of them will confiscate anything that resembles a gun while some will check it and let it through.

FUCK I HAD THAT HAPPEN on my last shipment of Mags, and BB's...

However I got those Bastards back.

huh? no...not really.... all MP5 variants are prohibited, all G3 variants are prohibited.

Hk 94 = MP5 variant = prohitibted.

you can get any mag you want as long as their pinned to 5 for semi-auto centre fire rifles and semi-auto shotguns, unlimited for rimfire, bolt, pump. 10 for handguns.
