    Would this make it through customs?

    https://www.fasttech.com/product/1910502

    Probably not but earlier in the year I did receive a replica Magnum 44 revolver cigarette lighter that looked exactly like the real thing.
    Then a mate asked me to get him one, but he wanted the Glock replica, and I ended up getting a nasty letter from customs telling me never to try it again.
    So maybe I shouldn't but it sure would make a nice conversation piece.

    Good luck My recent Fasttech order got returned to China by customs. Then I had to pay for the $10 return postage! So they gave me $20 credit on a $30 order.

    This is what I had ordered. Nothing sinister there. Maybe all combined it looked dodgy?





    Note: $$$ saved is not true as I now spend it all (plus more) on vaping gear

    wow, cloning my fave DTs is a bit low and that whistle looks dodgy as and it has army in its name.


    could have been either of those that caused it. cancel the DTs.
    amount saved by not smoking: $lots
    amount spent on vaping: $not enough

    We do not hate as long as we still attach a lesser value, but only when we attach an equal or a greater value.

    Clip-on Plastic Outdoor
    Survival Safety Whistle
    Army Green..
    Senior Customs Officer: We'll reject this item.. 'military grade, sonic stealth weapon'.
    Junior Customs Officer: Wait ..what?
    Senior Customs Officer: Well it's Army Green - so it has 'military grade camouflage'.
    Junior Customs Officer: ..O...K but..
    Senior Customs Officer: It is a 'stealth device', since it would fool a metal detector.
    Junior Customs Officer: OK..
    Senior Customs Officer: And imagine if it was deployed inside a structure, 'sonic weapon'.
    Junior Customs Officer: You are the master..

    The flexible straw drinking glasses could be used to garrote someone?
