Lerch and I just found out that we are going on our Swarovski prairie dog hunt July 12-15. We figured that we would have to get there on our own, so we were just going to drive. Today we found out that they are paying for us to fly into Casper. Normally this would be great news, but, unfortunatly, it is going to limit us on firearms that we can take [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img].
We are thinking that we can take all of our "normal firearms" on the plane w/us. We are also wanting to take our 338 AM which weighs in @ about 70 lbs. I looked on American Airlines sight and it looks like they would charge me about $150 to get it up there on the plane. It's also going to cost me an extra $100-$150 for my "normal rifles." I don't know if this is one way or round trip. Would it be cheaper to ship them up there and pick them up than to pay the airline??? Just trying to save a few bucks if it's even possible.
Also, what are the restrictions on taking cleaning solvents on planes??? I'm not going to take my custom rifles
if I can't clean them regularly!!
