Damn those are some nice collections! But think of it as not an addiction, but a neccesity

Please get rid of that colorful photo of your excellent collection!
You (and your kind) are a bad influence on people who don't have much self-discipline. Verpesten een van ons...(don't know the French version).

I did not know that Belgians had access to such guns. In order to have a license to own or shoot, is it about as difficult as it is in Germany or the UK?

The Czechs seem to be much more fortunate than in many countries.

Belgian gun laws aren’t as good as the Czech, Swiss or Luxembourgers, but better than most other in Europe. If you have no criminal history, are a member of a shooting range (min. 10 visits a year) and are patient … you can pretty much own anything.

Concealed carry, full auto, silencers, 5,7mm and (recently) drum magazines are the main ‘unattainables’.

It’s kind of funny how some little things are totally opposite for US and European gun enthusiasts. For us the AR15’s and M1A’s are scarce (unless we get a German or Chinese clone), but SIG550’s and FAL’s (or L1A1 if you’re cheap ) are abundant. We’re longing for Colts, while they’re throwing High Powers at us.

oops I did it

I just bought an 1893 Spanish 7mm Mauser. Mosinka I did buy the .308 Ishapore Enfield 2A1, no I don't have a C&R liscence. Thank you for all your help people!
In order to cut down on gun crimes we The Govt. are banning all guns.

Well I guess I will sleep with a chainsaw next to my bed. Not the same as a gun but I figure the sound of it revving up will be as effective as a pump shot gun being cycled.
