Shipping handguns internationally
Has anyone had any experience with shipping handguns internationally?
Can it be done?

danf_fl 09-21-2010 05:47 AM

Into or out of the US?

Out of US, Can it be done

Well it can be done....

you just can't get caught.

Yes, it CAN be done. Do you want to? No. Process is VERY similar to whacking yourself in the head with a hammer (cause it feels so good when you stop)

In addition to complying with the laws on the recieving end, you will need an EXPORT permit from the US State Dept. NOT the BATF, the STATE dept. It is going to suck the life out of you. Along with money.

There ARE firms that do this for a living. Contracting with one to do that would be your best bet.

Ok well what I was curious about, I'm pretty sure it cant be done?
I live in Australia, If you guys don't already know, gun laws are absolutely ridiculous over here and it is next to impossible to own a handgun.
I've always wanted to own a nice semi auto stainless pistol, a top dollar gun. Purely for keep sake and the occasional shot in the bush. I was just curious to see if it was possible to get one. Well at least one you know is new and it hasn't killed anyone.
Feel free to voice your opinions and thoughts.

Ok did the posts stop when I said I was Australian or because of what I posted

I would check with an importer in your country.

Other than that, I would move. The gun laws in Australia is one of the reasons I've crossed it off as a place I would like to see.

Gun control means ONLY the criminals have guns. So find you a criminal and buy your gun.

Showtime- I do not usually lecture folks that are not my family- but-

If it is illegal to possess where you live, do not post here asking how you can break the law. And yes, I DO believe you just did that.

BAD Showtime. BAD. (whacks with rolled up newspaper)
