Good day to all members:
I need some advice/information. A friend of mine Flatwater Bill , forum member would join me on the 1882 Era Black powder hunt this year. Unfortunately he is experiencing ill-health and had to cancel the hunt. The difficulty now is he will not be able to bring the rifle to South Africa for the duration of the hunt. This rifle is a gift from Bill to me. I now need to send him documentation regarding permanent exportation of a rifle from the USA , Idaho , Rigby , to South Africa . I will ask a visiting hunter to bring the rifle with , but I need to ensure the documentation is 100% in order before I can consider asking a visiting hunter to bring the rifle with....
I have the relevant documentation to do this/will talk to my DFO (Designated Fire-arms Officer )..I just need to be sure I am following the correct procedures to permanently export this rifle from the USA to South Africa..

I really would appreciate info regarding the the documentation I need to complete as well as the documentation Bill needs to complete and the procedures Bill need to follow ..???

I really would appreciate this greatly..

Regards

Gert Odendaal

It won't be cheap Gert, but if you book me on Emirates first class I'll bring it along for you. :)

Good day Members
Some feedback: I commenced with the process to permanently importing a 1871/84 Black Powder Mauser rifle from the USA to my country , South Africa.
Step one:
The current owner will apply for a permit to permanently export a rifle ( non military ) to my country , South Africa.
I will complete the acquired forms from my side SAP 520 forms and send it to him to complete his part as well.
I will make a duplicate of the SAP 520 forms , one set he will have with him to add to the forms a person need to bring the rifle to South Africa.
I will have a set of the permanent export of rifle forms filled out by the owner as well , both of us will have these forms with us.
When this step is completed I will give more updates as the process makes headway...
If there are any visiting hunters coming to hunt in South Africa and is willing to bring along this rifle , I really would appreciate it very much to hear from you.(y)(y)(y)(y)

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002.
