Back from Safari But No Rifle

Glad your rifle is back where it belongs.
Glad everything turned out OK and the rifle is back home where it belongs.

This is one of the reasons that before I left on my safari I made sure of what coverage I had on the rifle that I was taking with me and who would cover it if it was lost or even damaged on the flights.

I was also able to check on my baggage on the flights over with 2 legs here in the US and the 2 in SA to make sure that everything was loaded on the plane. Then on my flights home I did the same thing.

There were times that I felt like a mother hen.
We are happy with you that you have received your rifle. Do not let this incident leave a bad taste in your mouth.
Enjoy planning the destination of your next safari...

looking for 300 h & h flanged ammo
Looking for shipping advice. I will be hunting in Limpopo in March, and was wanting to know a general idea of shipping costs to return my mounts to the US when completed. Air or sea? Only plains game hunting.

Good morning 7MAG. I have a NEW, never mounted, Leupold M8-4X Extended Eye Relief scope that I will sell you for $325 shipped to you. I was a Leupold rep for 12 years and this was always our preferred mounting for a lever gun, scout rifle style.

You’ve got an interesting screen name. Will the Thrill provided lots of great times for me as a lifelong Giants fan. Even though I never met him, a number of buddies either duck hunted or shared a dugout with him. He’s a great guy according to those guys. Cool screen name and if that’s your real name, it’s a great one.
