After 20 years, I'm going back to South Africa this July. Bought the tickets with Delta back in February. Man, I had a hard time plunking down the money for those hi dollar tickets. This time, I'll have the little lady with me but she won't be pulling a trigger. I think I've got her bribed with a spa and massages. I went to the CBP office at the San Antone airport last week to get my 4457 for my rifle and other stuff, and I'm glad I took my time. The customs guy had zero personality and was just drawing his paycheck. He never even cracked a smile. As I was checking my paperwork, he didn't stamp/sign one of my forms. Got that little oversight corrected. Guess it's par for the course with a govt entity.
We also did the Global Rescue insurance thing before the 1st. Now I'm filling out the SAPS form to send to Henry and then going through my checklist. I have locks and airtags sitting in my Amazon cart. Gotta round up some ammo to start blasting away at targets so I can hit a critter. I can't freakin wait!!
 
Exciting! We look forward to the report!

The missus and I also did our global entry interview in San Antonio on Sunday, week before last. We leave in August.
 
hope you both have a wonderful and safe trip! wish I was going this year but next year will come soon enough
 
Excited for you. Have to wait for June of 25 for my first trip. I guess it gives me more time to save up for those tickets. Dang they are expensive.

Is this rifle sold? If not what is the weight of it and do you know if there is enough difference in diameter between the 35W and the 9.3 to allow for a rebore to a 9.3x62 which is what I am after?
Thanks,
Gary (Just down the road in Springfield)

Forgive me if this is the incorrect area, I signed up to this forum just now because I wanted to be on the list to purchase a copy of your autobiography. Please feel free to pass my information along to whomever is selling. Thank you so much. I look forward to it!
I like the Tillie in my picture. They are supposed to fit loose (2 fingers inside hat band), have mesh for cooling, and hold their shape after washing.
