It sounds like this is your first trip. We all romanticize about everything possible about Africa. That’s ok and not a bad thing.
Trust me, forget the handgun. You can’t hunt DG with it (a permit can be issued for many things not commonly legal I understand this) for the most part and a pistol as a backup gun in Africa is just not very common from a clients perspective.
Happy Safari planning. Check out my reports and YouTube channel.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!

I am looking for a Safari Express. Was yours made in New Haven or South Carolina? Any other details you can give me? I am very motivated to buy.
