Hello everyone,

Costa Rica is putting together its first major IDPA match and we are happy to invite ALL IDPA shooters to join us this coming April. We will be at the S&W Indoor Match so feel free to introduce yourself and get details. Enjoy a short vacation in Costa Rica, visit some beaches, do a tropical rain forest tour, visit one of the many volcanoes and shoot in this match in the middle of a great scenery.

If you want to get away from the harsh winter in the US, enjoy some warm weather in Costa Rica. NOTE: Temperatures at the Picagres Shooting Range will be high (around 85 degrees Fahrenheit).

How easy is it to bring a handgun into Costa Rica?

All you need to do is feel out the registration form which includes all the details of your firearm (brand, model, caliber, serial, also, mags and ammo) and we will do the paperwork for you with the Costa Rican authorities. The process should take less than 2 weeks. Once we have the final document we will email it or fax it to you so you can presented when you arrive at the airport.

I do not know who issues the permits in the US to exit the country with a firearms. For me as a foreigner the ATF is the agency taking care of all the permits required to get into the US with my firearm. And it is a very quick process.

Let me know if you have any other question.
