Anyone have some information?
We all know about England, I think - only bolt-action rifles and hinge-action shotguns, must be stored in a safe, which the police can inspect at any time. Even worse: deadly force in self-defense is considered murder! (even the most anti-gun states don't do that!) And I think you can only carry a pocketknife is you have a letter from your boss saying that you need it to do your job.
I remember reading that in Spain, you have to pass a laundry list of physical and mental exams to be allowed to own a gun legally.
I have heard that in Germany, any gun is like our Class 3.
Anyone got more information?
I had the honor in Germany of owning a 8mm blank version of the Walther PPK!
I'm not up too much on these topics, but from talking to relatives in Germany you need to belong to a club, separate license for ammo and separate license for weapons. And like every other sport or hobby, it's reserved for the rich!
Correct me if you have more info! I don't know the details.
