Dont cut my throat too deep if this has been posted before, which Im sure it has been but i sure as hell cant find it.
I recently PCS'ed to Spangdahlem AB, Germany and all my pb gear is in military storage at my last base with all my house hold goods. None of my stuff is being shipped out here until early Feb 2012 so this isnt a pressing matter, but when my stuff does get shipped is there any chance of problems arising with my Ego 09 with customs?
Ive read threads about guns being detained by customs because they dont have the F-in-the-pentagon mark but im not sure if my Ego does or not. During my in-process brief we had a customs official tell us that paintball guns are considered fire arms but i didnt have time to talk with him in dept. And on the other hand ive read a few articles/threads from other military folk saying you can get certain exceptions and/or people shipping their gun with their house hold goods with no problems.
Like I said, ive read both sides of the story and im still not 100% on this so i thought Id run it through you guys and get your experience and opinions with this issue before I go sit down at the local customs office.
PS - Where the hell are the decent spots near Spang to play at? Every person I ask that say they play paintball gives me the "deer in the headlights" look when I ask about a spot that isnt woods ball or has me ducking behind a shipping crate
