2 hour layover in Qatar my luggage and all my guns disappeared. At first we just thought they were mislaid, then after waiting 2 days in camp in South Africa I decided to hunt in the clothes I had on and hunt in my house shoes plus borrow a gun from whoever in camp had one to spare.
Anyway I had given up on getting any of my guns and gear back as the folks at Qatar said they had been stolen. Now a year or more later Colleen got a call this morning from the folks at American Airlines who work with Qatar Airlines. They said all my gear was coming in on a flight at 9:30 tonight. Colleen is on the way to the airport to get my guns and gear right now. It will be interesting to see what they sent back.

I hope they are in good shape. As a rule, theft is not tolerated in the Middle East.

The only thing that was missing was the several

hundred dollars I had stuffed down in the toe of my boot. Every thing else was there and in good shape. The guns were still sitting in the cut outs in the foam and my little tool kit was still there as were 2 extra scopes. I had 2 Encores in there in 450 GNR and 416 GNR and a G-2 in 310 GNR. All there and in good shape.

Excellent!

He ended up buying your old Encore kit from trips long ago. Blue .378 on stainless chassis.

any other handgun I own except for maybe my 41 GNR. That 378 GNR was my go to gun for at least 11 or 12 African safaris.

Another Juneteenth miracle!

If your guns are dirty and your ammo is gone, they were likely used for some nefarious purpose. I cant wait to hear what was returned. Fingers crossed that you're the luckiest guy in AZ!

The 3 guns were perfect, even still in the recesses in the

foam like when they left. The ammo was still in the little Pelican ammo case. Even the clothes were folded up neat and clean. The only thing missing was the several hundred dollars in cash that I had stuffed down in the toe of one of my hunting boots. The Pelican gun case still had the hanging tags for Upington South Africa on the handle. But obviously some Gremlins had taken the money somewhere along the line.

Awesome. American Airlines came through

That was some seriously lost luggage!

Amazing! I figured a lesser sheikh had 'em on the mantle.
