You booked the guns in the hold or you carried them in the Air craft, Don't the guys at the airport create fuss.

they dont let it carried by hand,rather they require the gun to b double packed,u have to show the receipt of alsayad and the gun after which u have to pack it in the manner that i told above it costs around 20 drms
after this gun arrives with your luggage when u land at Pak airport and the custom guys here and in dubai cannot do and have never ever created any fuss,bcz sporting goods like airguns r allowed.

Don't know about the procedure, but that was like 1 or 2 years back. He also intends to bring his Weihrauch HW100 and a new Airforce Condor or some other airgun next time he comes to Pakistan. And his Glock 19 5th Generation there too.

I am doubtful about bringing a pistol from USA in your luggage, lets see if he is really able to bring it here other then just wanting to bring it here. Taking it from USA to some other nations like European states is much easier, but when talking about Pakistan, then no doubt, they have all reasons to watch out. He says you need a special permit and a Pak. license with you and after a long conversation with the guys at the airport, they would let him bring it to Pak. My personal advise is better not try something like this as it can cause you deep trouble. About airguns, I'm 100% sure you can get them from Pak.

@ Asif Ali: Your comment reminded of this time when a friend, back in the days, claimed that he could bring in a handgun via luggage from the U.S. to Pakistan by dissembling it and putting the parts in separate bags. He claimed he knew the 'angles' to put the various parts so they would not show up as gun parts in the scanning machines.
To make a long story short, he got arrested at the airport and his family had to pay through their nose (in dollars) for a top notched lawyer who got him out.
Summary: Do NOT try it unless you have all the valid permits/documentations etc. With the situation the way it is these days i wouldn't even think of it otherwise :)

Dear Asif Ali Bro, Don't even think about it, without a proper permission (by US Export & Customs Dept) & Export /carrying documentation.


Ales, Brother Trajan has pointed a very good and true example ..............

the thread was started with a question, "Can someone bring an air gun from USA to pakistan in his personal baggage"? Sorry to say that the answer is nowhere around after a long rhetoric much less of someone really confirming the deal through personal experience.
At times one can sense the law even if one doesnt know the exact statement of law.so eagerly awaiting someone to put all of us wise, and do it by quoting authority.

The caption of this thread is not "Can someone bring an air gun from USA to pakistan in his personal baggage" but "Carrying air gun in LUGGAGE while traveling" not just USA.
Secondly I will reconfirm in December this year or Summers 2012 when my cousin gets these PCP's to Pakistan. As I have said before, never read or saw any such law and it is totally POSSIBLE.

thanx chaudhry brother....which law have you read??? kindly quote authority from the law that you have read. In the absence of an authority its just a pointless debate. waiting till the next summers might be a superflous call for an affair as simple as this.
and in any case,,,,if like most of us you dont know the answer specifically,,,lets leave it to a more knowledgeable member to comment with authority.

I have read no law, nothing special to contribute... Would just like to say it's legal for me to bring an airgun from Pakistan as well as my family, because we have already gotten one from there. Once my cousin gets his Weihrauch HW100 here, I'll inform everyone in this thread. Thanks and Bye.

SALAM BROTHERS.
I have taken at least 6 airguns from UK TO PAKISTAN. All they ask at the airport when you go to check in counter is that you say I have a AIRGUN which I want to take to PAKISTAN.and then they will call airport police to come and check the gun it must have it own box. The police will check and issue a special sticker to the box and you hand it at the counter and that is all. When you come to ISLAMABAD AIRPORT it will come same as all luggage you just pic it up and walk out. If they do ask let them check it( 10.00) and you go home.

The process for bringing an airgun from USA to Pakistan in your luggage is easy, I was of the opinion that it is possible, but some members weren't.
Well, you have to go to the airport at least 2 weeks prior to your flight, fill in a form (mention the kind of airgun, accessories you are carrying, # of ammo/pellets, etc), and deposit it with the airport authorities.
When you go to the airport for the flight, pack your airgun in your luggage, get it sealed, or whatever, and down it goes into the plane's fuselage.
Hope it helps and your queries are rightly answered.

Hi Pak Gunners,

I am not quite sure about the procedures outside of Pakistan, so I will take the word of Chaudhry as good advise, but when you reach Pakistan with the airgun, things are not simple anymore.

Recently one of my friends bought a DIANA 350 Magnum .177 Cal from UAE, and so far he could not find a way to bring it to Pakistan. As per the information which he has received from some one in Pakistan Customs is that you need to be a member of a registered sports club / body in Pakistan or in the country from where you are carrying the airgun. This sports body / club needs to issue a letter in favour of the person carrying the airgun that he is authorized to import the airgun for sporting purposes.

What happens now with my friend will be known in a couple of weeks, as he has no such membership and currently he is in UAE and will travel back to Pakistan in a couple of weeks. I will update on this forum whether or not he manages to bring the airgun to Pakistan without any problem.

Another of my friends, based in Germany who happens to be an "Airgun Doctor", and is a professional match player recently brought an FX Royal with him to Pakistan, and he was talking about the long procedure he had to go through in Germany to get permission to export the airgun out of Germany temporarily, as he intended to take the airgun back with him on his return from Pakistan. I noticed that there was an A4 sized sheet on his airgun case, with his club membership details and exact flight itinerary. Since he did all the paper work in Germany, he had no problem with Pakistan Customs. Based on this, we can deduce that there might not be any problem if you are a member of a sports club outside of Pakistan.

For those looking for importing an airgun into Pakistan from Canada, please note that in Canada, all airguns having muzzle velocities over 500fps are licensed, and the procedure is too complex to export a licensed gun outside of Canada.

As for the airgun pellets, I got around 4kg of different pellets from Canada recently, which were in the luggage and no one even bothered to check these at Islamabad airport, perhaps due to the over crowding at the airport due to Hajj Flights or some other reason.

Armoured bro,
There are many PG members who have brought airguns from Dubai (Al-Sayad), it's mentioned earlier in this thread also. My uncle also got one. There is no problem after landing here as I have heard.
Customs should only bother if one is getting his airgun to Pak. via some courier.. Be ready to give at least 1 similar airgun's price to them. LOL!

Purchase from some website, with your or someone else's credit card which works abroad. Pay for the delivery too and give them your address if you live abroad or some relative's, who is living there. After some days/weeks it will be delivered and then you can come to Pakistan and bring it along or when your relatives come here they can get it along (If their luggage is not too heavy)

Can I ask why you want that gun?
There a lot of other guns available I think you can not buy from any web site and have the airgun delivers to PAKISTAN.do you have any relative or friend living in UK maybe they could buy a airgun for you and take it to PAKISTAN.if nobody else can do this for you let me know and I will try to help you the best I can.

Just put them in your bag and bring here, nothing else. And no restriction on scope, you can get yourself a 1-40x60 aswell :D
