    Melbourne, VIC to Johannesburg with Firearm on Qantas

    A little off topic. But I'm planning to be back in Australia in January and then fly back to Tanzania from Melbourne in early February. I'm hoping to bring back another rifle with me when I fly back. I haven't done this in a long time so I wanted to ask what the process is in Australia in order...

    Kenya and Tanzania Health Recommendations

    Hi Rover, you should check on the Kenya Airways website for Kenyan regulations. But basically you need a valid yellow fever card and a COVID vaccination certificate or Covid negative test for both Kenya and Tanzania. I am not sure if you need to still fill in travel severance online form for...

    Ruger No. 1-H Tropical 416 Rigby

    @geoff, off topic here. But I supose you could always sell that barrel to me and I could fit it to my RSM 375 h&h as I already have the magazine follower and other bits, if anything to take pitty on me and stop the temptation of having me go out and buy another Rigby Gig Game to Match my 450.

    Lovely Choice.. it should pair up nicely with your Rigby in 450 rigby. If I were to buy a highland stalker I would choose the 9.3x62. I'm sure your going to love it. Pair it up with some 200gr cutting edge loaded to around 2800fps and your good to go for most game excluding Buffalo...

    Rigby SSB RMR sight mount

    I wanted to ask if anyone has mounted a Reflex RMR sight to a Rigby Big Game SSB. I was thinking of doing this but wanted to ask if anyone knows if someone makes a mount that will fit the rear sight dovetail. I wanted a set up that could be easily reversed.

    Lion Hunt Zimbabwe Matetsi 2021

    Its a legitimate question. I have no intention to stir the pot, but we are talking about a difference of $900 (my mistake when I said $1000) per day on the daily rate, multiply that by 21 days and you have difference $18,900. Plus significant trophy fees and other costs on top of that. I do not...

    Lion Hunt Zimbabwe Matetsi 2021

    How do you justify the $1000 a day difference in daily rate from the lion only hunt to the one with lion,buff, leopard and Sable. They are essentially the same hunt in the same area all with a total of 21 hunting days.

    ZIMBABWE: Elephant Hunt In Zimbabwe With Martin Peters Safaris

    @375 Fox. The Cancelations were the Addis to Vic Fall leg of the flight. I was flying directly to Victoria Falls from Addis, not via Harare. Its interesting that each time that Ethiopian canceled and rescheduled that they would only cancel that part of the flight from adds to Vic Falls but...

    Old Kenyan Firearm Certificate

    @ Spike, It should not be an issue to get the rifle from Kenya to TZ then back to Kenya. I can get a temperary permit to possess (TPP) and I still have my Kenyan import export permit, which has no expiry date. I can drive across at Namanga as on the TZ side they don't usefully care, but its...

    Old Kenyan Firearm Certificate

    @Spike, I think they used a crystal ball to decide or pehaps spin the bottle. Because there was no logic to it. I had to deposit my .416 with a dealer because they struck it off my license. So now if I go out I only have my .223 to sting Buffalos with. I have a Benelli M4 shotgun with a 14...
