Has someone done this before? Any precedents?
My concern is, since TR only allows one firearm,
Hami is correct rule states clearly one gun for one TR per family. Confirm this rule because otherwise second gun will simply be taken by customs and sold at fraction of price to high and mighty. I agree with vikram in India 22 are available but o/u is a very rare and expensive gun. If you really like 22 then go for CZ 452 none of the semi autos will be allowed even on NPB getting lic renewed is a problem stay away from it and neither is Indian ammo very conducive for semi autos. 22 pistols and semi autos can be bit finicky for the ammo so bolt action will be best. I like vikrams suggestion if one gun is allowed go for shotty if you can get spare barrels for a rifle better or a CZ 452 in 22...
Baljit .17 hmr is a great cartridge but its availability in india will be a problem
Thanks Grewal Paji,
I want to double check the TR rule because the wordings are different on CBEC website http://www.cbec.gov.in/travellers.htm and the mumbai customs website. http://www.mumbaicustoms3.gov.in/htmldocs/tr.htm.
I will be landing in Delhi so who's the best person/department to clarify this with?
