    Hi Andy,

    You can borrow my van and fetch it yourself if you like, just put some diesel in it.

    lol, thanks for the offer Ned but I've a sneaky feeling that vehicle might be known to the police, I don't fancy being stopped with a machine gun in the back. Also, I doubt there is candy

    I thought about maybe sending him some 'golf clubs', but the whole rig weighs 35kilos with the case. Some really serious clubs there.

    Just tell then the weight is due to pro stiff shafts and lead swing weights.

    Hi,
    I would seriously be careful in mis labelling your package as golf clubs when in fact its a de-ac gun. I think you'll find its breaking the rules by making a false declaration. I see your in the uk, where are you sending it to? I have occasionally sold the odd de-ac from here in Jersey, Channel Islands to the uk and sent them in the normal post. I have always put a seperate sealed envelope attached to the box and marked it "for customs use only" and put a copy of the de-ac cert inside with my address and the recipients. On the customs form I have just written"See seperate envelope". I have never had a problem doing it this way and the items always arrived at the other end.
    I know calling them golf clubs makes it easier, and its surely tempting to do that but is the parcel gets x rayed and they see the customs form does not tie up then they will sieze the gun and you could loose it.
    I guess we all do as we feel necessary, I have always found telling the truth gets the job done...but not always.

    It's all within mainland UK, but to make things for difficult for me the cert has been lost. I never had it, the previous owner lost it or never had it himself. I'm thinking at this point either drive down and meet him somewhere, or send it via a deac dealer. Ideally he will come and pick it up but I don't think that's possible.

    You should be able to get a new cert if you get the gun to the London/Birmingham proof house. Maybe a local dealer can help you with this. The gun will carry the necessary stamps and a new cert would be a formality.
