    Maxim, and Stuff, no problem. Playboy is forbiden.
    Any depiction of nudity is forbiden. While I doubt the FBI will come to your door, it's best not to play fast and loose with the APO's rules. One Playboy and the whole box could get siezed, and I would get my but chewed.
    Tahnks a lot and take care,
    John

    Thank you for your service!
    I can't say enough how much you, and all you are doing, is appreciated at this end.
    It’s so much easier now days, to "Love and honor" my wife, when she is armed, and shoots a better group than I do. (Till death do us part, eh?)

    I get a half dozen copies of each SWAT issue, and I only need one. I'll send over copies of our Jan., Feb. and March issues.

    OK John, went to Wally World(Walmart)and got you the latest copies of: Combat Handguns, Guns & Weapons, Guns & Ammo, Guns, & Gun World. Will get one of those flat rate boxes tomorrow and see what else I can stuff it with. A friend of mine wants to know if you can have Easy Rider? Seems he has a large collection that needs a home. Let me know, Rick

    John, I just had a thought, (unusual for me ) While at the SHOT Show I'm going to approach the magazine vendors there and give them your address with an impassioned plea to send stuff to you, for all the guys.
    We'll see how it goes tomorrow.

    Thanks again for your service.

    Welcome to the forum, John! I think I still have a stack of assorted gun mags somewhere in my closet. I will see what I can do about dragging them out and hgetting them boxed up this weekend.

    I'll say it again (because we can't say it enough) thanks for your service! You guys are doing a great job over there. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
