"Purely Hypothetical Question"

O.K. This is for you Handgun Gurus...

Say you were to travel to a fairly rough country, like Colombia (which has a nasty reputation for gringo kidnappings) and you were going to establish a residence there, what kind of handgun could be brought in via normal routes(airlines) inconspicuously(in pieces... over 2 or 3 trips) ??

Again this is purely hypothetical...and no I am not going to Colombia.

Why bother?
Just buy what you want from the black market once you get there.
They will sell you anything if you have the money.

And from what I've heard of some places you don't need that much (American) money.

$75 full-auto AK's, $10 grenades. RPG's might run a little more.

Think ahead, smuggle cash not illegal detectable items.

A lot of good stuff can be "purchased" for the price of single 5.56 / 7.62 round...

You're welcome!

Stick around for a while. You'll start thinking outside the box, and then outside that box, and then the next until you're playing with action figures like SGTar15.

I've not slipped that far yet. Probably only because I can't afford the action figures.

Why even sneak it in? I know Mexico sucks for firearms but some of those SA countries might not be so tough to legally import a firearm. Non military caliber might matter. Think 6.8 AR15 or .40 cal Glock or screw it and just buy it off the black market like everybody else said

The first thing I'd do would be talk about it on the internet.

Support the local economy. For a little more money you can get 17 year old hookers to join your new army.

Look I am no - I asked a simple question...If that is out of line then Staff please "Lock and Delete"

As far as terrorism goes I have already been to the sandbox and if called up I would WILL go again.

Buy there and if you have to use it just leave it there. No paper trail, no fuss, no muss.
