Anyone can order, but clearance without duty is only for club members. If you dont have a club membership, dont go in for import. It will attract a lot of questions, delay and duty.
Importing or placing an order needs no paper to begin with. Go online and order. Once you have imported and it and it lands in India, the courier chaps will mail you asking for club membership docs, etc etc. After you send it, the clearing agents in the courier's office, will have it cleared by customs. After clearance, it will be sent to your home.

Hope this helps.

Just saw an air rifle, and wondered, can one import .50" gun as well via baggage?! :O

Arent guns with big bore banned? And what about pellets?!!
So many times, it happens too fast
You trade your passion for glory
Don't lose your grip on the dreams of the past
You must fight just to keep them alive

It's the eye of the tiger
It's the thrill of the fight
Risin' up to the challenge
Of our rival
And the last known survivor
Stalks his prey in the night
And he's watching us all with the
Eye of the tiger

Can someone please tell me if an annual membership of a state rifle club is sufficient to import .177 air weapons or does one need to be a life member?

Since we are discussing importing of aur guns, I was wondering how much does it cost total to import a FWB (not sure of model) air rifle?
