Phil, from what I understand from Hans response: as long as those firearms are safe and sound in the airlines or customs hands you can go have a look around.

I will require a permit for myself due to the requirements and my situation.
For the cost of this permit, why not. To each his own.

No doubt. My only concern was if you get a permit and you're not in possession of your firearm and you go through customs, what then? Shouldn't be an issue if you've got all your flight info and they can track down through the airlines that they still have it. But that could be a mess for a bit.

INteresting permutation but I thinks we are over thinking it now.
Back to lwaters solution in that case:
"I have found out that it is better to act stupid instead of arguing."

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
