    Yes, more clear now, but I still see an interesting non-hunting report in your future!

    Well, there will be one or two real hunt reports first. I'm sitting on a very comfortable Dreamliner at the moment, about to leave for Paris and then to Benin for a hunt with Christophe Morio.

    Will get started on that one in Paris.

    I have a question for an upcoming hunt with Pieter Erasmus. One of the rifles I intend to take with me is a Cooper model 54 in 6.5 Creedmoor. The caliber on the barrel is stamped 6.5 CRDMR. The ammo boxes will say 6.5 Creedmoor. So on the Saps 520 form under calibre should I spell out Creedmoor or go with CRDMR.
    Thanks in advance,
    Stan

    Check with henry's but they look at the barrel for serial number and caliber not your ammo boxes. I would do what is on the barrel unless henry tells you different.

    Hi Jeff, we had several clients with bows last year on Emirates and no problems. You do have to get their weapons transit permit just like a firearm.

    Thank you for the input, I didn't know that and will contact Emirates and see about the permit. Thanks again!

    Jeff, message me your email address and I'll send you the information - it's all done online with Emirates and it can take 4 weeks to get approval back.

    Always stay in touch with your Outfitter to check on the last minute development/possible changes regarding rifle and ammo importation.

    I have tried to send SAPs an email trying to import my handgun from Canada to RSA for a hunt. Anyone have a new email in order to start the paperwork. Cheers

    What are you trying to start? SAPS520 can be completed at the airport when you arrive. (Actually, complete it all but the signature before you arrive and sign it in front of the officer.)
    Do you have your Canadian Export Permit yet?

    Brickburn: I have the 1042 forms printed off. Where do I find this other form(s), "EXCOL"? Can't seem to find it in a printable format?

    Further to my last message, where do I find a copy of the form required for transitting through Germany with firearms? Thanks.

    Transiting Frankfurt does not require a permit. (As of earlier this year. Check thread on that subject for details)

    German firearms laws are a little complicated. Cities can implement their own rules. So it may depend where you are flying through.

    I'm planning on flying into, and then out of, Frankfurt.

    If you are not stopping over and are truly transmitting, you do not require a permit.
    Look up thread on Frankfurt here on AH and it will have the most up to date information in it.
