    HWL, had first hand experience of how wild South African drivers drove , it really is a dangerous , adrenaline rush, driving on the highway as well as in the cities...another issue in SA for foreign visitors is to try and tell SAPS and customs people what is written on your German rifle permits..meaning well and trying to assist SAPS personnel may just get you in a tight spot...:LOL::LOL::LOL::LOL: Better to leave it to the South African friends you are visiting to do the talking...:LOL::D Do you agree HWL???

    HWL, it really helps to be able to speak a third language here is South Africa, I am fortunate to be able to speak Zulu language and this really gives me the edge when getting in a difficult situation we were while checking your rifles through the customs police side :LOL::LOL::LOL::LOL:... where you just wanted to assist the police officer out of natural German hospitality and decency (y):LOL: Unfortunately this kind gesture was not received very well ...:LOL:

    He, he, he, :LOL::LOL: HWL, you need to know when to fight and when to run to be able to fight next time...that was a "talking yourself out of a difficult situation " moment so you could attend out black powder hunt...it would not have been good if you missed our hunt due to you fighting your way out of that situation ...:LOL::LOL::LOL::LOL::LOL::LOL: We had a great hunt, you are an extremely talented hunter for sure my great German Friend ..(y)(y)(y)(y)(y)
