Hallo everyone,

Topic says it all...I ordered a Peicase 1730 to put and carry my new sled and arm inside.
Some days after the order and advance payment the store send me this form to complete,directly from the manifacturer saying that I ordered military stuff...

Is this normal or is it some kind of scam?
Anybody face this proccedure before??

Thank you,

maybe After selling one to Afton they are suspicious? I guess now we know that a wmd will fit in one.

When asked what I needed to carry, in hindsight I should've just answered "Steadicam", rather than "large metal object capable of leveling things".

I don't know why I was so long winded.

The Government and authorities seem to think anything dangerous will be transported in equally menacing looking containers like pelicans, in Olive Drab with Military numbers all over it with the words "RADIATION" written all over it. when they would actually be transported in 30 year old samsonite luggage with a paisley print.

Disclamer to the Government CIA operatives watching this forum for signs of civil unrest: I do not own or have ever owned paisley print samsonite luggage.....Periwinkle blue on the other hand......

It's a military case and you are in a country that is on a military technology transfer watch list, that's why

Hi guys,

Hi Eric...I asked the Pelishop.com in Germany and they said what you wrote above that I didn't know about.

I thought Pelican was an extream case manifacturer,not a military one...

And what is so military about a hard case anyway (thinking to myself..)?...I felt quite offended with that form...I am going to give them 650€ and they want to interrogate me?

I find all this military suspiciousness so rediculus on this planet...

Anyway,I'm getting it from Germany without any stupid forms...

Thank you all,

No Pelican/Storm/Hardig are Military case suppliers first and formost the 1730 is a great case to transport several kinds of weapon systems. Here's a 1550 that I use Posted Image

Sorry I threw the one of the five shots low but I was tired after shooting several hundred rounds on Sunday. That's a 1"x1" square at Seven yards

Eric has that 1550 case just in case he's forewarned of a producer that doesn't pay, so he brings it to set and everyone gets a check at the end of the day.

If I didn't drive a big red hummer I'd say he was compensating, but I do so I won't.

I was going to make a joke about "Walking the line" or "Was this Missionary or Don Juan?" but I can't think of anything that doesn't sound really stupid.
Nice shooting though.

The question about nuclear missiles made me chuckle a little though. What happens if you check Yes?
