Here's a hint: do NOT carry antique bullets in your luggage while passing through customs at Shanghai Airport.
That's the mistake Grant Cassell, singer for Vancouver's Behind Sapphire, made. And of all days, he made it on Sunday, September 11. And he was wearing military-style clothing. And carrying everything not in a suitcase, but a duffel bag.
The Chinese border people didn't care the vintage bullets were from World War 1. All they knew is that this guy was attempting to carry illegal munitions into the People's Republic.
