  1. You guys are too funny! Everybody knows the quickest way to get rid of Muggles is to foam at the mouth and start barking like a dog!

    and then they use there pepperspray on you.

  2. After my Surefire got stolen i have an Q40 from UK

     

    And a little Petzle Zipka

     

    I don't think they will have fun with the Surefire because they can not recharge it.

    But here in Germany the Surefire is to expensive.

     

    If someone is looking for an gas discharge lamps we have one here in Germany.

     

    Look here

  3. I dindn't cross on logs because i went servall times on food through some streams.

    I climbed in an Bomb hole that was 8 to 10 meters deep.

    I used an inflable Boot to get to island in the middle of the night.

    I Went through some swap in the middle of the night to find one cache.

     

    I think i would do some more stuff because it's fun.

    Wow, I've never done any of those things. :D:D:D

    Ja danke dir.

  5. I shipped three ammo cans last November.

     

    Austin > Chicago > Manchester.

     

    no problems.

     

    alex.

    you are lucky.

    In England there are all weapons prohibit. Because of this every kind of ammo is prohibit too.

     

    If they find weapons or ammo you are in big trouble.

    And for them an knive is allready an prohibit weapon.

     

    I wounld't take this risk.

  6. I will not be placing a "vacation cache". I just want to replace my old cache, which is already adopted by a local person and he will also take care of it.

    So why don't you send him the money so he can buy an new box and replace it with you.

    That cache has some "sentimental" value for me. It was my second cache ever and it was never found by anyone and I really like the place where it is placed, I have nice memories of that spot. That's why I want to go there and do something for the cache myself.

    I didn't question this.

    But i thought that it would be nice if you do it with the person there that takes care of the cache.

     

    Go together.

  7. I think that any software mapping program that interfaces with a GPS can do this, and possibly better than Google Earth. Most of them have a built in distance tool, so you can simply divide that to get the mid point.

    Yes maybe every program can do it.

    But PCMap in the Version we have is for goverment use only.

     

    For training i gave our guys some Cachedata so they can get used to this program. And it works pretty well for Caches.

  8. [*]Commercial Caches - Commercial caches attempt to use the Geocaching.com web site cache reporting tool directly or indirectly (intentionally or non-intentionally) to solicit customers through a Geocaching.com listing. These are NOT permitted. Examples include for-profit locations that require an entrance fee, or locations that sell products or services.

    Here in germany there is one cache on one of the towers of the cologne cathedral.

    You have to pay something to get on it.

  9. I have had to carry expended ammunition and primers on planes in my luggage (imagine the residue!) Just make sure that you tell the people checking your luggage and have them open the box and review the contents to make sure that it is empty and only contains trace amounts and you should be fine.

     

    Doc

    In the US or to europe?

    And before or after 911?

     

    Europe Weapon and Ammolaws a little bit more strikt.

     

    Try to fly from Frankfurt Airport with ammo in your luggage.

  10. Satellites for the American GPS or for the new Galileo system?

     

    It is a US government contract. As far as I know it doesn't have a name, and won't be operational for another 5 years.

     

    Jackie

    I think with this the US will be some years to late.

    In 2010 Europe will have Galileo.

    Now the good news for us.

    I was reading at this Homepage http://www.wdr.de/themen/wirtschaft/2/gali...lit/index.jhtml

     

    The free signal will be +- 4 meters. And the one you have to pay for will be +- some cm.

     

    So everything will be like before.

     

    The only thing is that the US can not turn the Glileo System off like the GPS System.

  11. Also, if its a surplus ammo box (most likely), it may contain microscopic residue (also likely). That could trigger alarms and then all you have is hassles.

    Thats what it is.

    I ask someone that took some war stuff with him on an plane.

    The Problem wasn that it was metal.

    The Problem was that it had some microscopic parts of explosive still on the metal.

     

    And he cleaned the Metalparts proberly.

  12. You are OT, my point remains, that United States manufactured ammo cans ARE available throughout Europe.

     

    Doc

    They are there because of the US armed forces here in europe. Not because we buy any of the ammo.

     

    And the guys were talking about the small ammo cans not about 120 mm HOT Cans.

     

    But i wan't say anything about it anymore because i know the weapons that are used here and i know where we get the ammo from.

     

    Look at my links.

     

    And by the way here in Europe we invented the Reactiv Amor and the ammo against it.

  13. Ammo is never shipped in metallcans

    Incorrect - it may be crated, but if it is linked, it is usually shipped in cans.

     

    and Yes.

     

    Doc

    So where do you work that you know it?

     

    And pls show me where they ship ammo in metal cans.

     

    And with shipping i mean the long transport to the depot or from it. Not the short transport in the field.

  14. What have THEY got to do with ammo cans (usually 20mm, 25mm, 30mm, 40mm and 50mm ammunition, though 30, 40 and 50 are usually packed in much larger containers?) These would be made by medium caliber ammunition producers. In the United States the top producers for this ammuniton are Alliant Technologies and General Dynamics. In Canada it is SNC. ALL ship to foriegn customers in Europe, Asia and the Middle East, so you SHOULD be able to find ammo cans just about everywhere.

     

    Doc

    First of all. Ammo is never shipped in metallcans. It's always shipped in wooden crates. You should know this.

    And here some links of some companys that build your ammo we need.

     

    Diehl

     

    Rhein Metall DeTec

     

    Rheinmetall Defence

     

    Ruag

     

    So why should we buy the more expensive stuff from the US when we can buy it here?

    And do you work anywhere at a place that sells or buys this kind of ammo that you would know what we buy here in europe?
