Not sure. I know Max and he kept me updated. Not sure what they do for everyone else.

I heard that he usually sends update emails about where your package is so that's great! Hopefully that will be just like I heard and their shipping and quality will be great.

I ordered the LZSK - 532nm 300mW High Power Green Laser Pointer Separate Crystal and it shipped on 1/07/12. Whenever i try to use the tracking number it says its unable to track. Ive been going to ups and usps websites to try and track it but it doesn't work . Does your guy's tracking number work?

Regarding hand carry through U.S.Customs (last check after one collects checked-in luggage), do they look for the "<5mW" warning stickers on lasers they find?

Default Re: So what happens at customs?

mmmm.... well would you steal a laser while at work at US Customs where, no doubt there are bunches of cameras recording your every move?? Risking your job and future would simply just not be worth any laser..not to mention facing possible jail time . I am fairly sure they keep detailed records of every damn thing and use a method of destroying items marked for that end with very little chance to take one home..

hak's dos centavos solo.


ps.. IIRC there was a post here long ago(by a Customs employee) addressing this and comfirming most of what I have posted here. Chain of custody is strictly controlled and as you have the right to appeal right up until destruction I dont think they have as much opportunity to steal as you may think...

custom and postal worker are just like everyone else, some steal, but imo its more likely to get ripped off by customs that by local postal workers, I have had some one in customs chow down on my Schwedenbomben I ordered from Austria.
