Am moving to the States shortly (permanently, on a Green Card). Just wondering if anyone on here has ever gone through the process of importing rifles/shotgun into the USA? Moving to Atlanta, not that bothered about taking my rifle, but have a couple of shotguns that i would ideally bring with me.

Any experience/advise/contacts greatly appreciated!
Cheers,
Joe

Well congratulations, but it does rather mean that I don't think we'll be stalking together at Malc's anytime soon I'm afraid. I daresay your father-in-law will sort you out with some adventures though. Which you can take pictures of with your iPad to show people in the pub.

Father in-law is over in the UK at the end of September, 1 week up in Scotland on the Red's/Sika's. Am sure there will be plenty of picture taken that he will share will anyone who cares...

I remember reading that US law allows any immigrant to bring in anything they own, even firearms that are severely restricted in the US like Class 3 full auto. It's a one-off exemption for new arrivals that AFAIK still applies, however you will probably still have the usual problems or going through airports or finding a shipper. Good luck, wish I was going..

I was hoping that this was the case, however can't find anything official to confirm. Will keep searching!

Contact the US embassy in London and they will pass you to the relevant section for an official answer.
