....I could bring a handgun with me? Legally that is.

And what are the chances I could maybe find / borrow / rent some toys to play with? A nice AK or Krink would be fun to shoot.

(its Albania, specifically)

I'm going to guess they're about the same as a Libyan MiG's chances against an F-14

Two chances.........., slim & none.

Excellent for AKs

Buy an AK while you are there.

Just don't visit that hostel with those hot chicks in Czechoslovakia. Bad news from what I've heard.

None. And good luck on your trip. Everytime I've rented a car in Germany, they've given me a map with a big red zone for eastern Europe and said "You will NOT take our vehicle into the red zone!".

Bring back a suitcase full of the 60-rd AK74 magazines, and you could probably retire. While you're at it, see if you can sneak an AN94 back, too.

Why the hell would you want to go to Albania after all the, uh . . . publicity it's gotten here this week?

I had the oppertunity to explore a gun shop in Bratislava Slovakia. It was just your average gun shop but really, really F'ing expensive.

you should bring home one of those hot Russian mail-order brides, they love you long time!

This

and

this.

Good luck and don't drop the soap.

(Seriously, though, I'll say a prayer for you.)

ETA Neither of these things happened IN Albania -- the links are about Albanian thugs and assorted wannabes in the U.S.

Prague is basically the capital of the European illegal arms trade. Good luck and say hello to Igor and his friends with the Russian mafia. I hope you like large bald men with a penchant for wearing black leather.

Actually, back during the ban I found a bunch of factory hi-cap CZ75 mags for cheap. A few immigrated here and have been very happy ever since! Lots of cool WWII militaria too. Guns...doubt it...wouldn't risk it.

I was in RO not too many yrs ago and they werent much into personal freedoms at that time. Citizens can own guns for some VERY narrow purposes. Being a big shot or having lots of money of course widens things considerably. In fact there were laws against foreigners possessing certain milsurp items (clothes etc). The bottomline here is that 'law' there is fairly fluid at the local level. If the local COPs want to hassle/imprision/torture/kill you theyll find a way. Having a gun (esp a handgun) would be one of the very best ways to make that happen. Even though the 'in your face' commies had been out of power for a year prior the COPs still did their commie era 'thing' of following us..making sure we knew they knew we were there. They were indiscrete and sometimes very bold. After a few days the spying became more covert but they never went away.

ETA: RO is a beautiful country once outside of the cities (they were NASTY!). The people though mostly acted like starved dogs and would cheat you if they could. Make SURE you understand the currency and have a working knowledge of the language.

Albania's chief export is furious political thought.... (Simpsons joke...)
Link Posted: 1/20/2006 10:26:16 AM EDT
Handgun- No

Buy one while there- Not legally. Finding someone to sell you one illegally will be a challange as an American, unless you have local guides that are into that kind of thing..

Albania is a shithole, but they dont sell AKs in the streets.

Truck stops on the border with Italy.... I've been offered AK47's

ANdy


ALbania doesnt have a border with Italy.. There is a ferry, but thats it..
Been offered that in Germany to, so not really a good indicator...

When I was in Poland I got to play with some cool toys, but only one was legally owned so I probably would have been in deep shit if the local authorities had cared.

Now come on over here and I will hook ya up. They were firing RPG's out by the back gate a few days ago just for the hell of it.
