    One of my good personal friends and shooting buddies was arrested at an airport in India with 8 22lr shells in his bag. In a tremendously short sighted move he used a range bag to pack for an overseas service call. At this point Indian officials have denied bail and he's facing a mandatory 3 years on what they're trying to paint as an attempt to smuggle ammo out of the country.

    You can read an Indian news account at the following link: http://articles.timesofindia.indiat...baneswar-airport-biju-patnaik-airport-bullets

    If you feel so inclined as to send a word to your congress critters on behalf of a fellow shooter, it would be greatly appreciated by his friends and family.

    I think he is fairing better than being caught in new jersey or new York.

    If he'd tried leaving the US with the same ammo, wouldn't the TSA have frowned on that? To say nothing of the export restrictions on US ammo, scopes, firearms and firearm parts.

    Crazy isn't it that for a 'doh moment, a fine upstanding citizen can end up in jail for a long time.
