View Full Version : load of AKs, RPGs, Mines and other weapons seized from USGIs in MD...
From a military plane - appears some air force personnel are in deep kimchi! I saw the pics this morning, and am in the process of getting them transferred onto disk - if ok, I'll post. Lots of AKs, one LIVE RPG round and several launchers were discovered on an airplane (not sure if it was military or commercial charter) in possession by the GIs by Customs and Border Protection...... Baltimore unit.

Boy, we would all love to get our hands on the "fun stuff", but it sure isn't worth the consequences.

Imagine pulling out that RPG with live rounds. :uhoh_smal

Theres always a way to get some stuff back(IF YOU HAVE THE RIGHT CONNECTIONS) Ive heard that many former military people who served a long time in the service just wish i had a few of those toys to play with.

There's always a way, but sometimes this happens. Have a
friend in SF who has been all over the Middle East and
spent some time in Africa. He won't even talk about bringing
anything back because of the consequences.

In 71 I headed a large detail sent to san diego and long beach to search thru military equipment coming back from Nam. This was all the rolling stock of the 1st Mar Div. after they were pulled out of Nam. I could'nt understand why someone needed a 57mm recoilless anti tank gun, but we found more than a dozen. Also several hundred AKs, grenades, RPGs, RPDs, and 1 1910 Maxim. I'm sure some of you who know me are wondering if that's the same one I own now, to which I'll reply NO! Anyway, I don't think anyone was ever brought up on charges for all the contraban.

dude! you got a maxim? sweet!
keep a supply of locks on hand and beat that tattoo for hours and hours and hours!
i have seen a few amnesty papered bringback from 'nam. nice toys, but getting busted with them isn't worth the cost of buying one the right way.

I have often wondered how many "oil pan" AK's made it stateside. :rofl_smal

In the late 60s and early 70s, my EOD unit had to make regular trips the the Kansas City post office hub to pick up confiscated ordnance that guys were sending home from Viet Nam. The wooden handled live grenades seemed to be a popular thing to send home, along with a live claymore, we picked up on one trip.

Heard a story of an officer in Nam that sent an AK home a little at a time. Well for xmas, his wife had it reassembled and shipped it back to him.

OK now think about it in terms of illicit drugs or other contraband and remember that for all the stuff that ends up in evidence lockers and distroyed ALOT more gets in. Just something to think about.
Still working on getting the pics copied over to a CD rom, and checking with the command to ensure it's ok to post them.

I always tell the guys that none of that sh!t is worth hard time in a Fed Pen! If you want an AK, we'll go back to the states and buy some. Its not the "same"? Bring home some captured mag pouches, slings and cleaning kits and use them with your new AK.
