    Don't think he's in Germany. Probably works for UPS or FEDEX. Possibly a NVOCC. My guess would be Atlanta.

    LOL, ROFL that's true! But they do know about quality engineering.

    If you're insinuating that the stuff is for "official" use, how would you know?

    Maybe some airsoft/tactical warehouse over there put in a large order. The US can't have a corner on the armchair commando market.

    Could have also been a U.S. military order, they do use Frankfurt airport as a Air Base too ;)

    I hope nothing I ship or order has to go through your warehouse. I expect that my shipments complete their journeys unmolested and that the contents are known only to me and the sender or purchaser. I would assume that Blackhawk and the Korean magazine manufacturer expect the same. I wonder what they'd think about the contents and destinations of their shipments be discussed on the internet by employees of the shipping company.:scrutiny:

    Is it really wise to discuss shipments like this? I agree with WC145.

    Blackhawk & Eagle Industries gear is very popular in Germany, its known for high quality and there is no comparable German product.

    The Frankfurt Rhein Main Airbase is abadoned, same as much barracks and installations around here. Does anybody know where they moved? Iraq? Afghanistan? Home?
