We are all ready to rant thats for sure and airlines are despicable! I've had domestic flights cancelled this week and I am not happy. At least I am quarantined at a beautiful ranch with green grass, a creek that is running, a nice shooting range, and a fairly nice selection of guns to shoot. Anyone want to come out and quarantine with me? Nice whiskey and great shooting opportunities :E Dancing:
Can you give me directions? I'll bring some good single malt and a couple or more rifles!

I don't agree. Mango is a, how do we say it nicely, a value based airline? That means they don't do anything they don't have to in order to keep fares really cheap. They realize there is an opportunity to get more business due to SAA changes and will get the firearm thing done at some point.

Maybe sometime in the future but not now. I spoke with Mango, some travel agents contacted Mango on my behalf. Mango’s reply "Under no circumstances would we permit the transport of firearms.” Can’t get any clearer.

Maybe but can you ever believe what one person says at an airline? I mean we have ticket agents here in the US that think their airline doesn’t carry guns!
Remember when airlines enter into code share agreements things change quite often and that’s what’s happening here.
I am only trying to be optimistic here. Time will tell.

It’s Mango’s policy for years. Of course it would be great if one day they would permit the transport of firearms.

If you have a airline cancel and not refund then perhaps your credit card company can look into recovering your money. Chargebacks happen. You pay for a service and its not provided. Get the documentation to your CC company and see what they can do for you. Maybe.....

They will get your refund. I've had that happen a few times. Usually a phone call to your cc company will do it. They have a record of the transaction and when it was made.

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
