I was recently chatting with a friend who mentioned he's heading to South Africa this May. Aside from the usual conversation about it he asked about getting his 4457 for his rifle and then mentioned he's stopping off for a week in Portugal on the way back. So he's thinking of having it shipped via Fedex from South Africa to a FFL licensed dealer in Alaska since having it in Portugal seemed to be a big undertaking. His thoughts were Fedex can do it here between states so they can do it from South Africa. I'm not so sure since it's another country and they have different laws about firearms. Oh yeah, the cost will not be bad for him, an employee perk of him working for Fedex. And yes, I did mention using a rental there but he claims they only have a 7x57 and he much prefers his own rifle. Has anyone done this, heard of it done, or have any info? Thanks.
