    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.

    Here is the scoop:


    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.
