Re: ISO: French RCIR Menu 4

Very interested in trying a French RCIR in particular menu #4. Looking for one from a US seller that has them in hand and still sealed that way I don't have to worry about Customs raiding my packages :wink: Would rather not grab one off of eBay and pay eBay prices.

Re: Customs Destroyed my Croatian Ration!

The problem is the products have to be inspected by USDA or have the certification to be exported to the US. Not only do I doubt military suppliers in foreign countries would bother with getting it, some rations are put together with components made from different sources so it would involve multip...

Hey everyone, I just got hit with a notice for being sent a Menu 12 British ORP from a very popular vendor.
