I admire your skill and patience. Thanks for the detailed report. I enjoyed it.
Oh great - thanks for the heads up. :rolleyes: I like airlines a lot. Especially Air Canada.
All packed up and ready to go. Scale says my bag is 49.2 lbs . I guess that means I have enough 'essential' stuff! I have a feeling this will be...

Yikes - I hate to hear about bad experiences even thought they need to be told. Sounds like one poor excuse for an outfitter to me. Great to hear...
jeffpg - Certainly appreciated but Sadly the physical transfer of a firearm isn't really the issue. It's the bloody paperwork and regulations....
Good to see some banter over what began as a 'rookie' question!

Welcome to AH - first safari planning underway - you are hooked now!
I have always had good service from this department. The individuals there must be out to give federal employees a good name?
That is of course is...
