I am feeling a tinge of jealousy. A rather large tinge.


Well done.

Thanks guy! David, I'm doing a European mount. Shipping it is already costing me a small fortune. Thanks again!

What is involved in getting a handgun into Australia?

The solids did very well -- none recovered!


wheeler, this hunt took place in Argentina. It is my understanding that you cannot import a handgun in to Australia to hunt with and that the only way to do it is to find an outfitter that has a handgun. It took some paperwork, about a $125.00 fee, and a long process of getting the gun and ammo inspected when I landed. It was a bit of a pain, but I had everything filled out correctly so it wasn't really an issue. I found the inspectors to be more curious than anything else.


Thanks guys!

Thanks! Dur, it took place in the province of Buenos Aires, roughly a three hour drive outside of Buenos Aires proper. Beautiful country!
