I took two rifles the first time around, and used a Pelican case and my rifles had no issues.  I can't say the same about my trophies.  But, I learned my lessons and they will be done here in the US.  ;D

I remember how you got screwed over on the trophies even if no one else does. To me, those trophies are priceless!

Exactly, and that is why I'm just going to do dip & pack and have them finished here in the US where I may have a fighting chance if not done correctly or damaged.  :)

So glad to hear you are heading back mate. Pity we couldn't tee a hunt up together. But who knows what the future may hold. Best of luck man.

BB, once I'm retired, I plan on visiting the Dark Continent more often.  Sh*t, maybe I should go visit you. :)
