Hello Guys,

I have a planned trip from US to India coming up in the next couple of weeks. Obviously, I'd love to carry an air pistol in my checked in baggage, but the bummer is that I do not currently have any club membership(I know it's stupid, but I did all my air rifle shooting indoors so never needed one :oops: ).

What are my chances of being able to bring the gun in my checked-in baggage, without a rifle club membership? Do you think I should go for the gamble?

Would appreciate your responses and opinions!

100% your gun will make it through into the country. Only, it'll end up in some customs officers kids hands.

Thanks BD and Jatindra.

Boy, that's a bummer! I wonder if I could manage to get a club membership or NRAI membership before I fly from here :?

I'll be flying back to Hyderabad, by the way.

HI, I'm planning a visit to Germany in May. On my past trip in 2015 I had bought back 0.177 air rifle and had showed it to Customs along with the notification for 0.177 and my rifle association member card. He had allowed me, whilst frankly accepting that even he did not really know the rules regarding the same so well.
My question is since 2015 has anything changed with respect to 0.177 cal air rifles ? If all the rules are as before I will try and import one personally in my luggage since Germany has some fantastic shops for the same.
Those in the know, please chip in with your advice regarding latest rules.

Thanks in advance.
