    Luggage insurance

    So I wanted to see what all you guys do. I know some of you carry some pretty expensive rifles to Africa. Below is a pic of my normal travel kit.

I'm trying to compare value as I understand the European model is a trophy Fee based on size. Now I understand the CIC system has different bronze, silver and gold levels based on the country...
