Default Customs

If you have been on the forum for a well then you kind of know that there is always a lot of peopel talking about there laser being seige or taken by customs. Sometimes it is wicked lasers people saying that dragon lasers are bad because there is a lot of lasers being seige and vise-versa. I just want to know if that a big problem in buying a laser.

If you did get your laser seiged and check yes :'( i am sorry for you i have not experienced it myself and i dont even know how i would feel.


thanks

I said no - I have gotten in multiple units form China, including some samples from various companies. I have had no issues with customs (yet !)

I said no and I'm in the U.S. I'd be inclined to estimate that heavily tracked packages are more likely to attract attention. I kept my USPS logins limited to a discreet 45 times per day.

Speaking of attention, check out my testimonial (Dave U.S.). Think I might have laid it on a little thick? Check out the video too, I think I've been watching too many flash animations on Wicked's main page!

Dragon was very complimentry (not to mention compensatory!) but I don't plan on quitting my day job any time soon...

Did I just hijack this thread? Sorry!

Goddamn Americans!

Are there any laws against lasers there? I wish the goverment didnt really care about lasers and not make them illegal. It would be so much easier to get them.
