    I plan to travel to Tanzania next month on a two year work Visa. Rather than going through the hoops of bringing my own rifles and shotguns into the country especially for a long timeframe, I'm checking into places where I can purchase firearms. Anyone with expereince and/or names of vendors in the country would be greatly appreciated.

    Africa...are there other continents to hunt?
    I think it might be easier for you to rent/loan a rifle from your outfitter than to go through the red tape of purchasing a firearm in a foreign country (if possible). Just my .02.

    Tom,

    I'm sure that's a simple way to do it but frankly, I like using equipment that meets my specifications and comfort level. Part of the hunt to me is matching the firearm, optics and consistency in shooting accuracy so that the only variable in the hunt is my ability to judge the shot.

    Much appreciated.
