    I'm going to be heading back to the UK to do some deer hunting with my friends in the UK.
    I want to bring my own firearm this time and not have to borrow one.
    My friend knows how to get from the UK to here with a firearm but not the other way around.
    What do I need to have filled out or filed and with whom?

    I’ve done it a couple of times but my buddy is with Holland & Holland and they handled the permits.

    Very straightforward your uk friends can get the visitors import paperwork via their local police force online. Cost around £20

    As above, your friend applies for a visitor permit. Very straight forward and painless.
