Damn thats quite a haul. Glad to hear you got back with no problems, I bet the guys who checked your bag were confused at why someone would pack plumbing supplies insetad of clothes.

Nah it just said they physically searched my suitcase, but everything is still there, and incase you are wondering what 'everything' is, well this is my spudgun supplies I bought over there:

There is a QEV, 4,000 metal BB's and in those little bags are several small brass fittings the rest is self explanatory

Where did you find the 1" NPT x spigot fittings (the ones that go in the bushings)? They are so useful but the only place I can find them is online.

Good On you MR. Crowley, Well done for defying customs (even though none of your stuff is illegal).

How good is the feeling of getting back toy your house with all your stuff in you bag knowing that they haven't taken anything.

Did you need to take an empty suitcase with you for all that stuff?


Oh well,

Happy SPuddin'

Oh at Auckland airport, I was going over to the bagagge X-Ray for my suitcases and stuff, and I made eye contact with one of the security dudes and looked down at his belt(habit from America, I like checking out their firearms) and then he pulled me to the side and checked all my stuff, passports, arrival card, boarding ticket and even asked the guy who checked my arrival card if I was all legit.

Boy was I nervous, I thought he was gonna check my bags :P
