Pretty sure it is against the law one way or the other.

As MAK said, its hard to believe that ammo is hard to get, unless he is in a position in which he wasn't suppose to have a weapon.

My Brother sent me good .45 ACP, during the 1st Gulf War.

No problems.

I feel sorry for him if he is using an AK, they are the suck

as for 7.62 russian, the stuff is everywhere! It comes in these large sardine like cans, and it's stacked up to the ceailing in places. Tell him to ask around and find a contractor in the UXO program, they would prob be happy to give the stuff away.

Pistols are basiclly worthless unless your already toast anyway, tell him to be happy with one set of full pistol magazines.

When I was in country their was ammo ever where. The back of my trucks looked like arms dumps from seizing so much ammo from everyone we ran into.

I know it sounds hard to believe.

Also, Saddam lets everyone own an AK bit there was a tight lid on ammo whole he was dictating.



really, I guess that makes sense let them have weapons but little ammo.

Cash will get you whatever you want in a poor country, seems like you could find it even if you had to pay for it off of a private citizen. They are allowed a AK where do they get thier ammo?

did your unit rotate back, or did you get tagged?
Link Posted: 9/6/2004 10:18:15 AM EST
how ya gonna get it there?

last time i checked, ammo was non mailable. Contract carrier only. And unless he's at a decent sized place, i doubt they'll have fedex.

DHL is the only private courier in Iraq right now, and they have a laundry list of BS you need to send something, starting with an account

FedEx operates there as well, but any way you cut it, it isn't going to be cheap nor easy.

It also kinda goes against logic to think there's no way you could get 7.62x39mm over there if you're supposed to have it. I think the "if you're supposed to have it" applies here.

definitely go with fredex then! I had a buddy try and ship an upper reciever through USPS/MPS which is perfectly legal. Yet some retarded sergeant decided that because it had a gas block instead of a standard front sight post that it was somehow a "dangerous weapon". Basiclly some fat pog who probably wanted it for himself.

Almost certainly the case.
And if the guy is resourceful enough to have obtained weapons he is contractually forbidden to have, he should damned well be able to rustle up the ammo - the country is LITTERED with it.

TO the thread-starter - stay the fuck away from shipping ammo there.
