    DRMO regularly sells stuff off that should not be sold - let alone exported - yet the stories quickly disappear while there is no news of consequences. What is the point of putting game systems on the "do not export list" for fear of them being misused by foreign powers when we let real systems be sold off like the case with the M-16s?

    So they voluntarily surrendered the contraband, and got rewarded with having their storage ransacked.

    Lesson learned.

    I saw the title and thought of this, a seemingly clueless guy who buys a storage unit and finds 2 Rem 700s, 1 Win M70, 1 FAL, at least one AR, 2 Garands, some lever guns, and a ton of ammo.

    BTW - I call shenanigans. There's no way this is real but it was kinda funny to watch.

    I don't think its so far fetched. When we cleaned out my in-laws storage unit before moving down here and selling my MIL's house - there were half a dozen firearms stacked up in there. 03A3 Springfield, and an Arisaka that was completely in-tact, no duffel cut, no defacing of the 'mum, plus others that weren't nearly so interesting.

    My dad's done the storage unit flipping thing and found shotguns and .22's in them before, and the other stuff people leave in units - expensive, valuable stuff, is pretty nuts. Makes you wonder WTF people don't go sell a couple things in a unit to keep the bill current if they're on hard times, or move the stuff elsewhere. We've pulled a couple grand out of units in high quality hand tools (MAC, Matco, Snap On, old school US made Craftsman stuff) in the last couple years.
