Schiphol airport sucks

Post by Olsen »

If you ever travel with guns, dont make a transit in Schiphol Holland :doh:

You need a lot of transit papers, it might take 8 weeks before you get them, but for me it took 14 days, so thats okay.

But your not allowed to bring a silencer, if you go through Schiphol, even if is allowed where you go hunting :doh:

So if my trip to South Africa go as planned, it will be without my silencer :doh:

Not a big deal, but I just think its stupid, when you can bring your rifle, but not your silencer :?

Why is it even any of their damn business? You have the papers for where you are from, the papers for where you are going - and you transit...... Idiots!

Not just the useless Dutch transfer paperwork, but they are quite anti-gun and anti-hunting. They "lost" all three of our rifles (with a 8 hour layover) heading for Namibia. During this lengthy layover, they lied to us three times about them being on the aircraft. The only reason they "found" them was our lodge owner/PH in Namibia called the KLM COO and explained how he could affect their reputation in Africa as a member of several Namibian tourism organizations. Never an apology or any explanation from KLM . . .
Too bad since they had a flight from Amsterdam to Windhoek without the usual stopover in Johannesburg.
