    For all women, who think costly gifts like socks, underpants and aftershave are necessary for a man...… this thread is not for you.

    Something simple, lovingly built together, just wood and steel, is sufficient to make a man happy.

    For example, a Ruger No1 in .405 Winchester.....

    Merry Christmas . I received a box of these from a friend from Idaho yesterday for Christmas .

    I cannot wait to give them a try this Friday in my Belgian side by side shotgun.
    The best Christmas gift which l ever received in my life was this , from my dearly deceased friend and former professional shikaree partner , Tobin Stakkatz . If he was still alive today , then he would have gotten me a Winchester Model 70 I .416 Remington magnum ( which l always wanted to shoot ) .

    In Bangladesh ( not India ) , imported fire arms and ammunition are fortunately allowed to be possessed by citizens , Spike T.
    Tobin Stakkatz bought me the shot gun from Europe . I merely applied for a 2nd shot gun license and l received legal ownership of it .
    Imported firearms and ammunition are widely available in Bangladesh as well.

    That's good ... but was wondering how the shotgun rounds got to you from Idaho?

    Oh , that is easy , Spike T. The friend is in Bangladesh now. He came from Idaho day before yesterday and brought the box of cartridges with him . I received them yesterday.
    A foreigner is allowed to bring up to 250 rounds of ammunition ( the 1st 100 being duty free ) and 2 firearms into Bangladesh at any given time after filing paperwork with the TRC in Bangladesh ( which typically takes a couple of weeks ) . He cannot however bring a .303 bore rifle or a 9 mm calibre pistol ( unfortunately , but this law remained unchanged since Bangladesh was originally a part of Pakistan ) . Other than that , he can bring anything else he or she desires .

    Very nice! I have a 45-70 Ruger no.1 listed locally to make somebody’s day!

    I’m hoping to get a 350 Legend myself.
