    HI Hamy

    Are you looking to fly our of Grand Forks, Fargo, Minot or Bismarck? All 4 are friendly. :D

    You will need to have your permits to bring your rifle (s) into the States. I have had friends who have waited months to get their permit from the USA.

    My suggestion is to see what your flight cost will be from flying out of Canada or the US . (y)

    Ok Thanks we would likly fly out of Minot.
    We fly from there all the time but have never taken rifles across border.
    Taken our bows across all the time.
    Plan on checking prices from Regina but they all seem to fly to Minneapolis anyway.
    Could try out of Winnipeg quite abit farther to drive tho

    On the ground, be cause you are not "transiting" you would need a 6NIA for the firearms and ammo from the ATF.

    The 6NIA is easy enough to get, but without a valid purpose, hunting or target shooting the guys at the gate are not likely gong to let you onto US soil.
