Guys I need a little advice, I am planning to buy a military rifle, now it's a long story but to cut to the chase I live in France and I have to plan ahead and apply to the local Prefecture (Local Goverment Office for the department one resides) for a Catagory 1 authority.
Now it's not a problem because I am a member of a club and the shooting Federation but it's a one shot deal, it's just a ball ache.
I am applying for a 308 rifle and I quite fancy a CETME as I had a G3 in the UK some years ago before we had to hand them over, and I can't get one here. I travel to the US on business from time to time and I have it mind to obtain one in the US with spare magazines and export it back home (legally of course) having already ahead of time got the approval and documentation from the Prefecture and the Dounes (Customs). My question is quite simple the last time I was there there where quite a few about in good shape, what is the position now and approximate cost.
