Will magazines pass customs?

    Tentatively, I plan on bringing my family home to meet relatives.

    I wanted to bring some Colt, Beretta, and Glock magazines as gifts. My concern is if it's legal to do so. I don't want to do anything illegal so I though I would ask here first.

    My only complaint is my cousin told my wife about how the bars are out there and also warned her not to let me go out to get a "massage".

    Last time I was home, I was a bachelor and had such a good time out there. I ended up almost every night at High Pitch in Makati.

    Thanks in advance for your replies

    It is illegal, don't risk bringing in the magazines on you or inside your carry-on/checked-in luggage. It's not worth the trouble.

    Regarding massage and bars, let's talk about it when you get here. ;N

    Yup. That's correct. Its not so hard also to spot a magazine inside a luggage using the xray machine.

    Do you think it would work if I sent it door to door or do they still scan everything coming in?

    I know in the past, we've brought accessories (holsters, sights, etc) but I don't recall sending magazines.

    Glad I asked here first.

    Maligayang Pasko to all!

    That is ILLEGAL ;) Not unless you declare it and your freight forwarder accepts full responsibilities which I really doubt.

    Holsters are legal. Grips, AFAIK, are considered as integral parts of the gun and are therefore illegal to ship without the necessary permits.

    there are few gun ranges in the countryside but not here in london.
    permanent residents enjoy same priveledges as the locals.
    living condition is very expensive as london is the 2nd most expensive city in the world next to tokyo(minimum bus ride is 1 UKsterling=109PhP. tax is 22% but you get free medical, education up to a certain level plus tax credits and child benefits are also given.
