    This was posted on another board I and a few other Steyroids frequent. Couldn't see any reason not to spread it around. He's asking for your old gun mags, the ones you would just throw away, and is a position to spread them around.

    Unfortunately not many Soldiers and Marines are shooters. The PX people realize this, and so gun magazines are hard to come by, depending upon a persons location. Compared to 2003-04 when I was here for OIF 1 things have improved dramatically. We were sleeping on the ground and eating out of cans (T-rats) for the first 6 months. It's truly amazing to see the difference.

    I believe the post office has a flat rate shipping box for around $8. Smaller containers can be had for less.
    Just make sure you fill out the little customs form. It's easy, all it does is list whats in the box or package. That way Uncle Sam knows your not sending a bomb, or 'evil' pork products.
    Thank you very much for your support.
    Take care,
