I'm Eric from Virginia and currently I am trying to scratch that life long Africa itch and plan my first safari. Guess I've been stalking threads etc... here and have found a lot of good info. Thanks for that. I haven't posted anything because frankly I've been trolled so many times on other forums that I'm gunshy. So forgive me for the delay between signing up and posting.

You are welcome here on AH. I am the head troll hunter on AH. If someone gives you a less than polite welcome please let me know. I have the solution at my fingertips.
Enjoy your posting here.

Welcome aboard! This is a wonderful place for info and enjoyment. Even for those like you and me who have always wanted to hunt Africa but haven't yet. The depth of experience here is incredible.

Eric, welcome to the AH forum! No better place to find your way to Africa! A great place to start is under the heading “ safari planning guide”.

Welcome aboard Vintageguy. Did you pick that moniker because you've been around the block a time or two, or because you like old firearms, or both. Re "trolls" they don't last long around here. We get them from time to time, but they are short-lived. Please tell us a little more about yourself as a hunter. Things like what have you hunted in the past, what kind and caliber rifles do you own, do you reload. Stick around here, and we'll help you scratch that itch. Most likely sooner rather than later. You will find that knowledge and courtesy abounds amongst our members.

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.
