Importing an Air-Rifle from U.S Posted Jun 04, 2009
Hello Guys :)

I just wanted to know if it is possible to import an airgun from United States through the website (pyramydair) as they could ship to UAE...My only concern is the Dubai Customs :)

The Airgun is an 5.5 PCP Airforce Condor.

Thanks :D

I'm thinking that Customs may take it away from you and give you a receipt, saying come back in a month's time to collect it. That's what they did with a high powered air pistol I arrived with a few years ago. Not sure what happens after that as I never bothered to go back to collect it.

You can buy quite decent airguns here, with all the accessories, scopes, etc. There's a large shop in Deira near to City Centre.The Arabs do love a gun....

Well, I think that's his business, but he could start by shooting all the bastard cats that sleep and urinate on the roof of my soft top car......

Mate, my car is under cover but it's an open garage. I bought a cover for the roof, the tomcats now spray all over that instead, which is not as bad as it was except that I have to handle it every day to put it on and off :(

Cats are wild animals that should not be classed as pets, nobody has any control over them, but their so called 'owners' say they love their little balls of fur. :evil:

Dogs are kept under control or should be. I read a couple of weeks ago that there is a even law being introduced to stop them being in public without being on a lead. Harsh, but when you see the way that locals can treat dogs that they 'find' you would not want your dog to go missing.

Fair point hump. I've had cats throughout my life till I moved here and while I love them, they are independent and I did get a bit fed up clearing up pooh from our garden in Scotty land, so goodness what the non cat owning neighbours thought! I got my lab here in Dubai and i do respect the laws and culture of locals and would never leave the dog pooh or allow my dog to run off leash and hound the locals. But I would do the same in my own country too. Responsibility is the key :D

Good man. I love labs, never had one though. My parents used to own a pet shop so I've been brought up an animal lover, but cats...

I guess it's only the anti-social side of them I've a problem with. Is it cruel to clip their claws and keep them indoors, walking them in a harness if you really feel you have to? I don't know, but seems the only answer to me!

Typical Yankie answer 'It's our constitutional right' blah blah blah! BS! Guns are a menace.

Our coppers don't need guns to bring down criminals.

Anyone that needs to have a pistol in hand to make them feel big, is compensating for something else. (yeah small banana!)
