How do I transfer gpg keys to a new box?

Sorry if this has been asked before, but I tried searching the forums and could not find the answer I needed. I am getting rid of my old box and moving to a newer machine. One thing I am worried about is how to get my gnupg keys across to my new box.

Is it possible to copy all the files in the ~/.gnupg directory to the same directory on the new box, or is there a different process I must go through to import them into my new box? Any information, FAQ's, links, etc would be greatly appreciated.

You got it. Just copy that directory (~/.gnupg). That is all there is to it.
