buckfever, you might want to take the clothes with you and ups the gun. or ship all of it that way
I dont know if you can ship your gun to canada without it going to an FFL. Besides, you have to have the declaration form filled out and pay $50 at customs to get your gun through. I heard that it is no big deal really, but I thought it would be less hassle to carry the rifle case by itself reather than to pack luggage anlong with it and stand in unecessary lines at the airport. Plus you can ship items fed-ex that you cannot take along on the airplane.
Thanks for the response
