Didi I think you can take guns but you have to have all the correct paperwork and permits.

Good night Michelle, greetings to the rest of the family. You too Didi.

Didi - it is one heck of a schlep because SA want a NZ entry permit first and NZ want SA clearance before giving an entry permit. My neighbour did it a few months back, I will fire off an email to him to find out how he eventually managed to get his guns out.

That will be great - I will have to go that way as we have some rifles that are family heirlooms...... and hubby will not go without.

Appreciated Nolan! Where will I check tomorrow? Here?

I will then probably add the info as a new thread called something like 'importing weapons'

It may not be tomorrow however, depends on when he gets a chance to reply. I will PM you when I add his reply  O0

No it's freezing - I have gloves on..... no heater, and my house is like a block of ice. But the stoep is the traditional place to celebrate.......

Explain PM? Personal message? I will receive it when I log in?

mmmm guns - well we are getting rid of ours sure will not need them over there. Didn't like them much here either. One is an old family heirloom - oupa grootjie was General Louis Botha so that one is being donated to the museum.

I know that you cannot take shells with but would that count if they are on clothing? I make a lot of my own clothes and have some great T's that I have used shells as beads on would I have to leave these here?
