My, how times have changed.
When a friend of mine was leaving Germany in '76, he had a lot of firearms. We had been in Germany as part of the US Army. He had bought 4 or 5 pistols and 3 or 4 long guns at our US Rod and Gun club. They were very cheap there.
Since we lived in the barracks, they were kept in our Arms Room. He had mailed his stereo and a few other things home and I asked him how he would get his firearms home. He said they would let him walk his locked travel cases onto the plane, then the stewardess would tale them and lock them in a closet up front. He had taken a couple of long guns home to California already while on leave.
Now, I can't get on with fingernail clippers.
