Does anyone know, or have resent experience with bringing guns into the US after 9/11?
It used to be easy, and I have done so in the past.
Someone I spoke to were trying to go to a 3-gun in Las Vegas last year.
When applying for a permit to bring in the guns, they got
NO to Benelli M1
NO to AR-15, even in post ban configuration
YES to pistols, but they couldn't bring any mags! (Like a one-shot pistol is going to help you win a 3-gun!) :banghead:

Has any of this changed resently?
I have an urge to go to the US again soon. Shoot some matches, shoot some 3-guns, and possibly attend Gunsite/Thunder Ranch etc.

lists FAQ’s for non-resident aliens importing firearms (temporarily) into the U. S.
Prohibited are any weapons or devices (magazines) that falls afoul of President Clinton’s Crime Bill.

In a word, no. The regulations have not changed.
