Interesting day. Arrived Heathrow - Sent to TAP Business Class to check in gun. What ammo have you got - replied pellets. What weight - about a kilo. Ok no need to check. We'll get someone over. 5 min later chap arrives to taken gun away. No police, no looking at gun.
At other end, saw police arrive as we were waiting for the transfer bus to arrive. Oh, I thought, he's come to get my gun. Straight to collect bags - well you would when the chap at Heathrow marked them as "Priority", "Firearm and ammunition". Then went to Customs. Gun in Pelicase 1750. "Discussed" with officer that it mine then he pointed out it was the wrong flight. A very helpful chap went searching for my gun. Got the gun after 1 hour. Everyone at Heathrow and Lisbon was brilliant.
Presumably someone has now been reunited with their gun at Lisbon Airport.
Two beers, meal, and now on 2nd bottle of wine.

Had no problems with customs, U.K. Side where a bit slow and odd, you tell them the details and then the border force check against what you've said! Defo get there an hour early just in case. Portugal side no hassle, picked cases up and waited in red area of customs for guns to appear. They checked one and the rest of us walked through after passport and luggage tickets matched.

Getting a few PM's about what to do when you get to Manc Airport, in the interest of me going for a beer, here's what I did.

I went straight to the checking desk and handed over the passport, they knew we had firearms and called the border police to come and check them. The guy behind the desk fills in a form and asks for your serial number on the gun, make sure you have this handy. Border police came, checked the guns and took them away. Our cases got weighed and then we took them around the corner to Oversized Luggage, not sure why but I'm guessing it's because they have pellets in them and they want to do a deeper scan.

DO NOT PUT YOUR PELLETS WITH YOUR GUN.

The whole process took about an hour.

If you know where to look i've done a couple of videos on stuff while I've been here.
