Yes it is mate and I've paid for it. And I agree. I've already lined up a PH in SA. Nice bloke very obliging and I can't wait, but there's alittle bit of work to do and I don't bloody mind! I'm really looking forward to the whole experience. I have the lay the blame on you bastards in the forum. You blokes started this.
While I've got you mate. Which airline did you take to Africa? How did you go taking your firearms on board? I've got a hold of Customs and they've given me the info I need to Import/export my firearm & ammo, so I'm set there. What else do I need to take into consideration?
Any Aussies reading this post your info and assistance would be appreciated. Thanks All.
I travelled with Virgin last time, qantas this time. Whichever airline your with let them know your intentions & they will likely issue a letter of approval to carry your firearm & ammunition as checked baggage for the period of travel. Handy to have when your going through customs at the airport. The rest is Restricted Goods Permit, Export Declaration Advice, Customs Client ID & the Import permit to bring the gun back into Oz. Sounds a bit daunting but it's not really. Your RGP is only valid for 28 days so don't apply for it to early before you go.
I used a 375 on my last trip ...all plains game & never felt over gunned....the 9.3 will be fine.
