    Me and another member of the USA team want to stay a few days in another country before heading over to Lithuania on Wednesday. Will probably fly in on Friday or Saturday before.

    We would like to stay somewhere that we would be able to shoot or practice before going to Lithuania on Wednesday. I will probably rent a home out in the country as a vacation rental so we could shoot/practice on the property.

    What countries would be the easiest to get into with respect to paperwork for our air rifles. (2 Steyrs)

    Thanks in advance.

    Why not stop over in the UK Paul - some excellent FT clubs with permanent courses laid out 7 days a week.
    Getting in and out shouldn't be too difficult so long as you have a letter to say your gun is sub 12fpe.

    Getting over to Lithuania from the UK is a bit more tricky, but there's plenty going from England and Wales, you could tag along with us.

    Train hard, fight easy ;)

    We would Love to Brian. It's the getting over to Lithuania is a bit tricky part that I'm not so crazy about. Getting to shoot at some of the FT clubs in England sounds like a dream!

    You need to be aware Paul that travel from UK to Lithuania with the guns means going via Brussels Belgium. Other carriers refuse to take firearms. Not a big issue, but you would need to plan extra flights.

    It might actually be easier for US visitors to travel in Europe with a sub 12 airgun than it is for UK shooters.

    The problem we have is that since we're a part of Europe, other European countries expect us to have a European Firearms certificate which the UK home office won't grant to unlicensed sub 12 airguns ( it would cost them too much money :rolleyes: )

    But since the US isn't part of Europe, they won't be required to have a European passport, so it might end up being easier for US visitors. We have some crazy rules in Europe, that's for sure!
