: : Does foreign mail order for gear work more often then not????My shit got seized now i'm scared shitless to order any more
: Customs inspects less then 1% of all mail coming into the US. So you should have 100 to 1 odds on getting an order, provided you are not ordering from someone that is on Customís Alert List . Now that you have had a package seized, they may put you on some kind of list and inspect all your packages. I am not sure. Maybe someone that has had some experience with ordering a second time after their 1st package was seized, could help you out.
I've had guys lose 1 package reorder and it get through and then have the next one seized again.
I hope you've told the sender whats happened hint hint otherwise he will assume it got thru no problems.
