    Silvanus. I saw your pictures and could not believe how each photo turned out... Are you a professional photographer? P.S. you have a very nice collection as well.

    My collection is meagre indeed, but this is what I have.

    DSCF2452.jpg

    Baikal hammer 12g, moderated Mossberg 500 .410, Air Arms (best in the world!) .22 air rifle, Miroku 6000 12g.

    You also get to see one of my fine Scottish stone walls.:)

    I wish we could get suppressors in the states without all the hassle and $200 tax stamp. It is a good idea that they are more freely available to protect hearing.

    Suppressors are about the only unrestricted thing we have! I'd swap them for your freedoms.

    Thank you. I'm not a professional photographer at all though. My pictures were taken with a small digtial camera. I tried every mode, flash/no flash, ect. until the pictures turned out good :D And they only do when I take the pictures outside, without too much sunlight... I have no idea what exactly I'd need to do to make good pictures indoors, here's what they usually look like...not good at all :(

    Okay Finland chiming in, this is my inventory as of today:
    inventory.jpg

    Sorry for the sucky photograph but my apartment isn't very good for taking photos, dark and requires a flash.

    Anyway the list:
    -Remington 870
    -Winchester 9422 (from 1974)
    -AR-15, Spikes Tactical model in .22lr, imported from the states 2½ months ago. Has a Brügger & Thomet suppressor.
    -1911 in .45ACP, Norinco, shoots fine, needs trigger job.
    -Ruger Mark III with suppressor (just a cheapo 35 euro one, not as good as the B&T).
    -Glock 17 ambi.

    Up and coming is a Sabre Defence M5 upper and hopefully an ACOG for it. An FN-FAL is also high on my list. Also looking for a Cimarron 1873 when I get the time and money.

    Hy


    I am completely new on the forum. Happy Ester to all of you.

    I am from Croatia, and just got all the permits needed for gun ownership,
    situation here is bad,allmost like in UK.
    I spent almost $1000 for all the papers need, most of them totally
    unnecessary for sane mind.
    (medical license, hunting license, metal storage, registration, and a whole bunch of birocracy...)

    You can have almost everything that is not full auto or full auto look-alike.
    (That means no AK's,AR-15's,FN FAL's...)
    This is retarded because you can have CZ75,Glock 17 or Beretta 92Fs that look wery similar to the some full auto hand-guns.
    It depends only on the "professionalism" of birocrates that will approve it or no,
    and after all, on connection you have in police.
    Same thing for gun carry.
    But I prefer philosophy; "It is better to be lead by two, than carried by six.":p
    Suppressors are forbidden without an exception for civilians.

    You can own "expanding bullets" but only for hunting
    (in pistols only for mercy execution, or how you call that!?)
    and target shooting.
    Even police carry FMJ which I found very irresponsible and stupid.

    The "funniest" of all is that you cant shoot the burglar unless you ask him if
    he would threaten your life,if so,only then you can shoot him,but your gun will be taken away(seriously!),that means you will go in the jail if you shoot someone that break into your house "only" to steal something.

    But most of us prefer full clip from the AK47 ! :)

    Another thing is illegal guns,you can buy them very easily for small money,
    especially in Bosnia(they have only formal laws,but Bosnia is total anarchy)
    Ak47's,especially those M70 Serbian versions can be found for as little as 200€,other most comon guns are M48,TT33 and SKS (Yugo versions).
    Weapons from WW2 era are also common, specially German weapons(We were allies because they liberate us from the Serbian empire) like MP40,MG42,P08,k98...
    There can be found for a little money,I even stumble upon the FG42 and G43 for less that $1000!
    My grandpa used to own a Mauser C96 from WW1.

    Yugo weapons are one of the best quality in the world, compared to German, even better than Russian stuff, only thing good from the ExYu...ehh......

    And I almost forgot, penalty for having illegal gun/s is half of the cost of
    having the legal stuff! :cuss:

    As long as I know,situation in Serbia is much much worse,
    normal people like hunter and sportsmen’s are restricted severely,
    I think they can own only a 200 bullets per year or so,
    (there was even some preposition of law in Croatia to do that)
    while their drunk ultranationalist terrorists who done a lot **** in past
    (That includes directly provoking WW1,Balkan wars,civil war in WW2 and aggression on
    Slovenia,Croatia and Bosnia(some of you may heard for Bleiburg,Vukovar,Srebrenica…),
    NATO bombing on Serbia,war in Kosovo…)
    They own all sorts of auto and explosive weapons,not being controled by anyone.
    I must say that Serbs have,at least,some kind of gun culture,while it has been
    suppressed by out traitorous politicians.

    Gun laws in Slovenia are the best.

    Ther is no any kind of organization like NRA that defends our rights,
    but I am almost certain that if some politician tried to ban all the guns,
    he would be executed by someone.

    We can suffer a lot of injustice, but when it is too much, it is too much!
    We must take justice in our hand as a people or become extincted,that
    is how stuffs here worked for thousands of years….ehhh…God bless USA!

    Happy Easter to you Homeguard and welcome to the forum. Thanks for your very interesting post on the law regarding firearms in Croatia.
    But he told me he would kill me if I didn't hand over my possessions.

    I think that is enough to pierce his head with FMJ
    (but NOT with "an expanding bullet":D)

    Another big problem we are forced to live with are wars,
    unlike your Americans who are "nuts" about everything "tactical",
    we really NEED that "tactical" stuff to survive,not for play,but can't get it.

    Luckily,last war ended 15 yrs ago,and we will live in peace in at least
    10 years more,probably more,but this is how stuffs work here!

    That is downside in living in beautiful nature and water rich country in the intersection between east and west and their interests :uhoh:

    Greetings Dark Skies, but I thought semi-auto rifles were banned in the UK? Well, guess I was wrong

    The AR with the adjustable stock is a .22 semi - legal here. As is the AK-alike. The AR with the A2 stock is a straight pull bolt .223

    They can still have semi0-auto .22's- which the top AR and the AK both are. The middle AR is a straight pull AR- meaning that you have to cycle every shot manually.
