Vertigo - there is a ferry from the Hook of Holland to Harwich. They also have an overnight sailing. I have taken this ferry many times and it is quite comfortable. From Harwich to Holts will take you approximately 2 1/2 hours to drive.

Theoretically, you could arrive on the overnight ferry, which will put you on the road at about 7am. You can then pick up your new rifle, have a good lunch, and motor down to rejoin the ferry for the return trip that evening, at around 9:30pm, with everything sorted out in one day.

Perhaps not the worst idea… it would mean I do not import via a gun shop, but get the papers done myself…. I’ll let them first figure it out a bit, and if it seems too complicated, I might try that too…

Hello, saw that you want the Jeffries brass. So you an either send a USPS money order or paypal i guess, which ever works for you is fine with me at this point. If you want to us Paypal use [redacted] friends and family and dont mention gun stuff at all or they will go bananas! LOL!

Let me know what you want to do.
Thanks,
Rob

Hey Jim, I read that you’re from Dequincey and just returned from Africa. I’m from Lake Charles and went there in April. What outfitter did you use and would you share your experience and pics? I won our trip to Kuche through DU.

Hello! Nice rifle! I have IDENTICAL rifle in 375 H&H so i was wondering what gunsmith did the work on it? Appreciate it and if you decide there is anything you are willing to take in partial trade, let me know. I have quite a few pistols, long guns and sxs & o/u shotguns as well.

Let me know if you are looking for anything in particular.

Thanks,
Rob
