    Unit has tons of mags they’re gonna trash, a few of us considered gutting them and mailing them USPS home in pieces.

    Check if they are listed on import or export control lists, in both 06 and 09 on my deployments it was a big no no

    From my understandings, it’s considered a US address. So as long as not shipping to a ban state, no need to disassemble them.

    Someone in the military might view the magazines as being government property being diverted, so keep that in mind.

    If there is screening done coming through the system, it’s probably x-ray. Consider placing your mags on edge or on end relative to the labeling and size of the box. That removes the familiar appearance of the magazine and makes it harder to identify and thus interdict. I had a buddy who had an x-ray machine at his place of work. After hours, we partially disassembled a Glock 26 (just field-stripped) and separated the components in a briefcase. The bullets were left in a magazine but laid so they were pointing up. The frame was oriented so you the xray was looking down on it from behind. Ran it by one of his coworkers who was normally pretty good on the xray and he didn’t identify the threat, even though he thought something was up.
