Fragment from Matt Burkett's blog about CZEO 2005 (http://mattburkett.blogspot.com/2005/08/cz-trip.html)
.........
Flying to the Czech Republic with guns was exceedingly easy. All you need is an invitation to the match which I printed out at home from the http://www.CZEO.CZ website and then go to the police station in the airport and they will get you checked in and issue you a firearms transportation permit. Took about 15 minutes and I was out of the airport. When you are in the country for competition there are no fees for the permit. The people in CZ seem very positive about guns and sport shooting.
