Chris, if you had worded your first response the way you did your second, I would not have taken it out of context. Water under the bridge.
I know exactly how this weapon got from the front lines to the states and no, it was not legal. But, when you're an officer and a pilot to boot, it makes these sort of "missions" relatively easy. He did not fly the gliders, he flew the aircraft towing them. Once the dust settled, you take your pick from your "connections" and store it on your aircraft in your personal items crate until you decide to ship it. Easy as pie. If he were a ground pounder, yes it would make things much more difficult because of your lack of mobility and rank.
I promise, pictures, soon!
