Nope, but a friend of mine did once ... filled up a UHaul once with gasoline. Couldn't stop from laughing as he pulled back into the rental lot with the truck knocking/clanging/banging and bucking away To this day i have no idea how they didn't know what was wrong when he returned it ... engine must have been ruined

I was stabbed in my heart and left lung with a butchers knife in '99. Hence my love of firearms now...

2) Suspicion of Intent to Commit Nefarious Acts. This one is my favorite. They found a receipt for the first bolt action rifle I was having built in some of my forms. Their assumption, who knows. In my mind, is that I was there to perform contract killing(s).

So after 20 something hours on flights starting in Korea, thru Japan, thru San Fran, I was deported from Canada and sent back to San Fran. That was a long assed day.
If you had tools with you, (ref#2) they were worried you were

in the country taking a job away from a Canadian. They're somewhat

protectionist up there. Maybe you're right, and they actually thought

you might shoot somebody, but the bag of tools alone was enough

to get you kicked out...

I guess I could see that, but my tools were in my luggage and all my luggage was stamped Republic of Korea from the airport at Inchon, with both my driver's license and my passport both reflecting the same US address. I don't know what it was about that one dude, but he was not letting me into the country.

Of course I suppose it didn't help that the girl who was supposed to be picking me up at the airport wasn't there to vouge for me as she got the dates mixed up. She was not the brightest girl I ever dated. True dat.

It's okay though, it was just a powerstroke, nothing worth having around anyway.

Received an AK47 gunshot wound to the head and I'm still here to talk about it.
