    Major, Sorry to hear about your problems. Canada and Frankfurt aren't places I am familuar with. Hang around on this site a couple of days and people with experience can probably help give you some advise. What ever happens, don't chuck the hunt in. Call your PH in SA. Explain the situation to him. He will have a rifle or two to choose from that you can use. Then spend some time on this site, ask questions and be in great shape preperation wise for your next hunt.

    are you doing an overnight in Frankfurt? if not you might not need anything there if you don't take possession of your firearm. The export permit for Canada only took me a week to get.

    Its a little late now, but I used rifle permits.com to deal with the import permit in SA.

    You should also check with your PH/outfitter if you can rent a gun there, no need for permits then either.

    Very good point tox i did this on my first hunt and as you can see by my pics it worked out great, on the second hunt I took my own rifles at a cost of two hundred dollars 150 more then my first hunt because all I had to pay for was the bullets I used, needless to say I'm using Rusty's guns again this time. its no different then when my dad handed me his rifle as a young boy and let me take my first game it may have been his rifle but I took the game with it.

    Thanks guys for all the support I finally found a flight on SAA fromJFK.I'll fly down from Toronto the night before.I have the forms 6 for my rifle,a little nervous about that in new york. But it's certainly legal, so hopefully no issues I actually got the permit from SA for my freedom arms revolver but no way I'm taking that thru new york!! The rifle should be no problem tho,if I could have gotten the flyer through Frankfort but that fell through, and all the airlines are suddenly full!!!!

    Good luck on your trip.
    Glad you got something worked out.

    In the USA DO NOT take possession of your firearm. You are transiting the US. Not entering the US.

    Get anyone with the airline to move it for you.
