    I have two items up for grabs. First are 62 Barnes XLC .257, 100 grain bullets. These are the blue solid dry film coated “X” bullets. Second is a copy of “Hunting Africa’s Dangerous Game” by Bill Stewart.

    Has anyone booked or flown Delta to JNB and back through CPT lately?

    Quiet honestly, about all the letter is, it’s a proof of policy with coverage amounts and that it covers covid related medical care for international travel.

    Has anyone booked or flown Delta to JNB and back through CPT lately?

    Here is a screen shot of what my policy says, but short answer is yes I’m covered.

    Has anyone booked or flown Delta to JNB and back through CPT lately?

    I got Allianz insurance, $50k coverage for COVID, medical and rescue for $130. They also give you an embassy letter which is really a good idea right now. I think Qatar wants to see a copy of the embassy letter which also gives all of your coverage info.

    Has anyone booked or flown Delta to JNB and back through CPT lately?

    I’m leaving in 2 weeks on Qatar, flying economy and my ticket allows 2 checked bags. Looking at the seats there probably aren’t 30 seats filled on the entire plane so leg room shouldn’t be a problem. However, if you are taking firearms I’d highly recommend a travel agent, that is if you can find...

    For Sale Winchester 1917 375 H&H

    Since it looks like this piece may have issues and your looking for a 358STA, I’d send it to Pac-Nor and have it re-barreled and drop it in a new stock. The action alone should be worth $500. Again just a suggestion, the 358 STA will probably be my next build if ever get around to it.

    Y’all be killing me! I have a 375 Ruger and if I weren’t leaving in less than 4 weeks for last year’s Safari I would probably be sending a PM right about now. Beautiful rifle, I’d say it won’t be around by the time I get back in June.

    RSA to be placed on “Do Not Travel” list??

    www.etsuhealth.org If scheduling on line you’ll need a front and back copy of your insurance card. I just took a pic of mine with phone and attached. It’s a drive through PCR in the parking garage at ETSU, when scheduling leave comment you need email copy to print for travel. They said to...

    RSA to be placed on “Do Not Travel” list??

    So....if you look on the embassy’s page for RSA, they are showing that they are at Level 1, if you look at CDC, the whole world is Level 4. I’ll be on Qatar May 21 out of Dulles to Doha to Johannesburg, just saying.

    Doha Airport

    @Edster I have sent my documents by email notifying that I am traveling with firearms and got an auto response but have heard nothing back from Qatar. Even tried to call to inform them but can’t get through. Should I consider I’m goof to go and just be sure that I have copies of all documents?

    Delta just cancelled June 1 ATL to JNB flight

    We had booked delta back in October for May of this year, they cancelled and we got full refund. Booked Emirates a couple of months ago and last week they pushed out to an uncomfortable date, we requested refund and got full refund. Fast forward to this week, now booked on Qatar to Johannesburg...

    Savage or Winchester

    For years and years I would only buy blued and walnut. As I’ve gotten older I have gone more with stainless and synthetic, mainly because of hunting conditions in TN. I still love the classic look and feel of blued in wood, it’s just that they tend to sit in the safe more than in the field...

    Savage or Winchester

    I have a 375 Ruger and Custom 35 Whelen and love them both. Based on my original post I’m looking at a Winchester and Savage 338 WM and I fully agree with @BeeMaa and @CoElkHunter that the two don’t really compare as apples to apples. I guess what I’m trying to justify/decide is difference...

    Savage or Winchester

    Thanks for the replies so far. I have one Savage which is a heavy barrel model 12FV that is a tack driver in 308 but definitely not one I’d lug on a hunt. I have and have had several Rugers and really like them. Actually found a few that I considered but they went for crazy expensive prices that...

    Looking at obtaining the venerable 338 Win Mag as I have a 264, 300 and 458 and am wanting to fill the gap. My dilemma is I have found a Savage 10/110 Storm with 24” barrel and a Winchester Super Grade with 26” barrel, both are new and at reasonable prices in today’s market. I love and am a...

    Should I start reloading?

    With the current shortage of components and the stupid ridiculously high prices if you do find them, I’d say hold off if you have to buy them retail. However, there are a few forums that have people that are willing to help out anyway they can. Just start posting things you are looking for and...

    Four of us are are booked to leave May 21 and it has been a nightmare. We had originally booked with Delta over six months ago and when they kept canceling flights we all requested a refund and at the time Emirates was looking pretty good. Well, today Emirates has pushed out there cancellations...

    My Covid vaccination experience

    Emirates is requiring all of their flight crews to be vaccinated. I’d say it won’t be long until all of the airlines will require this for both crew and passengers.

    My Covid vaccination experience

    Had my 2nd round of Moderna Wednesday morning at 9:00. Felt fine all day, woke up this morning with a slight headache and by noon felt like I had the full blown flu but by 7:00 pm felt much better other than a little more tired than usual.

    Delta Update

    Our entire group (4 of us) is either vaccinated or in the process of completing vaccines before we leave so hopefully that isn’t an issue for us. I see what you’re saying, it could be a sticky wicket!

    Delta Update

    As of right now the direct delta flight from Atlanta to Johannesburg is cancelled until at least June 1. However, they are offering a KLM flight that goes through Amsterdam, if you are flying without firearms it’s probably the fastest flight. Our group didn’t want the hassle of the permit...

    Delta Update

    This is correct. I just got a refund on my Delta flight because of going through Amsterdam and the firearms permit was going to be a nightmare We were booked for May 22 and Delta would not confirm that the flights would resume June 1. Now booked on Emirates leaving May 21, and I will have my...

    A huge thanks to TNDave

    Thanks @Viral_SIGness for the kind words. I can say the same for you. Instead of paying crazy high prices we all need to do a little horse trading so that none of us are lacking. I’m not a hoarder and couldn’t afford to before things went to crap and definitely can’t afford to now, but if I have...

    My Covid vaccination experience

    Haven’t got it yet but am signed up. I took the pneumonia and shingles vaccine at the same time, bad idea, would not recommend it, so the COVID vaccine can’t be half bad and definitely better than the virus. I personally know 4 people that have died from either the virus or complications since...

    Overpriced Reloading Components?

    @CJW where are you located. I’ve got a bunch of 458 bullets that I bought for practice with my Lott, probably 3 lifetimes worth. I could probably spare some if interested and won’t gouge you either. If your close to E TN could probably spare some primers as well.
