@Glenn Slaven congratulations to you and your dad. From your photos, I think you could pass yourself off as a South African PH. You got the look! :)

Your Pops did some nice shooting!
And so did you...(y)
Looks like he was using a Ruger M77 African of some caliber.
Wondering if you guys traveled over with a suppressor and if it was a PITA.

It’s in .375 Ruger with a Bowers can. Flying w a can wasn’t bad at all. Dad went down and had a 4457 done on it at customs. They didn’t even ask about it in Africa.

Thank you. It was amazing. I don’t think deer hunting will be the same. I may just come up to lease and just hang out with you around thanksgiving

i have found that deer hunting still gets me going! Part of that is sitting there in the dark waiting for the sun to come up and hearing all of God’s creatures stirring. The other part is good friends hanging out. So come on brother!

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!

I am looking for a Safari Express. Was yours made in New Haven or South Carolina? Any other details you can give me? I am very motivated to buy.
