A large cargo ship from America to Australia. How hard is it to take a handgun, hide on the ship, and have it collected on the other side?

You would think it would be easy right? Imagine a crate of bananas, stash a handgun in there, and just have 1 or 2 guys working on the ship to get it for you. How come smuggling weapons is so difficult?

    Customs would check it. Especially something like bananas.

    Genius, you aren't. I've met several.

    While paid to lock them into concrete

    cages for most of their lifetime. I've

    had an earful of past explanations.

    Regarding how smuggling goes wrong.

    You're just another person who has no

    idea what the punishment will feel like.

    I'm retired. Somebody besides me has

    that paid pleasure.

    Like the others said, any items that enters the docks from foreign countries needs to be inspected first.

    And to make it worse, items like fruits/veggies/other live products needs to be quarantined & inspected thoroughly, since those things were highly suspectible to stuffs like disease that could infected the local vegetations.

    So no, your "idea" in smuggling a mere gun was dumb and unreliable. It would be much cheaper and more efficient by buying it in countries near Australia, and then smuggling it via a small boat.

    All containers are inspected when they arrive at their destination.
