    Hi folks,

    I found a suitable lefthanded FT gun in a gun shop in Essex.
    Unfortunately it turns out that this shop doesn't ship outside the UK.

    This would mean that I'll have to drive 600 miles and take the Chunnel to actually get it.

    Is there anyone with a better idea who can help me?

    regards,
    Peter

    You will probably struggle to find a courier who will ship outside the UK, the only one i know to is, PBS international, not cheap though.

    I had the PO return one to me when i tried to post to the Netherlands, i tried again and it was returned again, i had to dissasemble it and send the parts over in several different packages to get it there!!
    Their exlpanation was the buddy bottle was not allowed to fly as it was a pressure vessel. with the bottles neck removed and it disguised as a thermos flask i got it past them! :)

    Just sitting in Rotterdam heading in the wrong direction. A week ago you would have your pick of couriers.
    Try pm'ing ChrisC on here. He used to pop over to clog land now and then.

    I know, I know...

    And ChrisC already informed me that there won't be any car-based channel hopping this year :(

    Yet, all is not lost. A forum member who lives fairly close (17 mi) to the gun shop has offered see if it's possibloe for him to pick the rifle up and send it to me.

    Let's see how that works out. :D
